What treatments are covered by the term “cosmetic dentistry”?

There are many procedures that fall under the umbrella term of cosmetic dentistry. Basically, any treatment that primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile fall under this heading. At our Luton practice, treatments include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Discreet braces
  • Smile makeovers
  • White fillings

Are the benefits purely aesthetic?

Whilst the primary focus of cosmetic dental treatment is on aesthetics, many of the treatments are also better for your dental health. For example, choosing cosmetic orthodontic treatments can also improve your oral health because straighter teeth are healthier teeth. The benefits to self-confidence shouldn’t be underestimated, either.

How long does treatment take?

This will depend on what type of treatment you need. Some procedures, such as veneers and teeth whitening, only take one or two appointments, whilst a full-mouth reconstruction or orthodontic treatment will take longer. Your dentist will advise you of how long your treatment should take at the planning stage.
