What is Cosmetic Dentistry

No, it has nothing to do with cosmetic products (read: makeup). Cosmetic dentistry is the field which ‘works on the general aesthetic appearance of your mouth, or more specifically, your smile.’

This means that it is the kind of dental care that works on the following components:


  • Shape

Our teeth are never evenly shaped unless we happen to be very lucky indeed! But some of us happen to have teeth that are particularly uneven in shape and this makes them stand out in a bad way. A cosmetic dentist can help us shape our teeth in a smooth even line.


  • Alignment

Say hello to braces! Teeth alignment is vital for the perfect smile and a cosmetic dentist can help in that by either going for braces alone or braces combined with tooth extraction and/or scaling.


  • Colour

Yellow or god forbid, brown teeth are a nightmare! A cosmetic dentist can whiten your teeth significantly and make your smile instantly better!


  • Position

A bolder step than shaping, a cosmetic dentist can marginally change the position of your teeth and mould your smile into the way you want it to.


  • Fixing Injury

If you lost a couple teeth due to a sports injury back when you were a kid or chipped a tooth from a bad fall last week, such issues can be fixed with tooth replacement and fill by a cosmetic dentist.


How to Find the Best Cosmetic Dentist in Peoria, Az

Now that you know what exactly a cosmetic dentist does, you can browse through the many dental care facilities located in Peoria, Az and check how much of all this are they offering. Most of them offer the basic amenities like scaling, application or removal of braces and tooth extraction. But not all of them offer premium injury recovery in an aesthetic sense. By this, we mean that they do fix the primary injury, but not in an aesthetically appealing way. So if that's what you are looking for, it is best to go with the cosmetic dentist who has plenty of experience in this particular requirement.


Then, you should compare the rate at which they are offering their services. If your insurance doesn't cover it, there is always the chance of you getting ripped off, so be careful. Pick the dentist that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. By keeping these two points in mind, you will definitely come up with the names and clinic details of the best cosmetic dentists in Peoria, Az.
