What it is. The art and science of creating a perfect smile.
When and why it's needed. Cosmetic dentistry involves many elective procedures to produce a beautiful and healthy smile. Your dentist devises a treatment plan to meet your esthetic and oral health goals. Procedures typically include tooth whitening, veneers, crowns and tooth-colored restorations.
Before & After
