How is Aesthetic Dentistry Different from Cosmetic Dentistry?

Often times, when reading about cosmetic dentistry, you will come across the words "aesthetic dentistry." Basically the term "aesthetic dentistry" means exactly the same thing as cosmetic dentistry, which includes all dental procedures that are for aesthetic purposes rather than health purposes. People seek cosmetic dentistry for a variety of reasons, but the main reason people seek out cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of their mouth and smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialization in the field of dentistry that includes a number of different procedures, all of which the main focus is the improvement of the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic procedures may not necessarily be needed, but they can improve your look and raise your confidence level.

Popular Procedures
One of the most commonly performed cosmetic dentistry procedures involves putting porcelain veneers on the teeth. Porcelain veneers can help to dramatically improve your smile and help you look and feel better. Veneers can also be used to help improve a number of different cosmetic dental problems including everything from discolored teeth and gaps between teeth to crooked smiles. They do not take long to apply and can last a lifetime as long as they are well taken care of and properly maintained.

Another of the most popular aesthetic dentistry procedures is tooth whitening. There are many different causes of tooth stains and tooth discoloration including coffee, tea, cigarettes, and staining foods such as berries. Teeth wear and tear, and over time they will become unattractive and discolored. Tooth whitening can help to regain a fresh and bright smile and help the person to gain self-esteem and self-confidence.
