Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

by Gregory D. Kuo, DDS, MS

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Any dental procedure that’s primarily used to improve the appearance of your teeth or gums falls under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry.

Thanks to continued developments in dentistry, cosmetic dentists have the skills, techniques, and high-tech materials they need to safely and effectively correct virtually any noticeable flaw or aesthetic issue.

Cosmetic dentistry is often used to correct or improve discolored, chipped, misshapen, or missing teeth. Dr. Kuo can whiten your enamel, close gaps, restore worn teeth, and even alter the length or shape of your teeth.

Although the main goal of any cosmetic procedure is to restore your smile, they may also help improve your bite and your overall oral health.

What are common cosmetic dentistry services?

As a cosmetic specialist, Dr. Kuo has the expertise to help you understand your treatment options and find the cosmetic solutions that best suit your needs. He offers a complete range of cosmetic dental services, including:

Crowns

Also known as caps, dental crowns are used to restore strength or appearance to a tooth that’s severely worn, cracked, weak, or discolored. Crowns are custom-made in a dental lab so that they match your natural teeth perfectly.

Bridges

Having a few missing teeth is often corrected with a dental bridge, a restorative solution that fills the space created by lost teeth. The bridge itself may be made up of one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using your natural teeth on either side for support, thereby “bridging” the gap.

Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that’s surgically anchored into your jawbone, where it holds a porcelain crown or a bridge in place. Dental implants, which rank as one of the most popular offerings of cosmetic dentistry, are strong, stable, and permanent, making them an excellent option for tooth restoration.

Invisalign® clear braces

This advanced orthodontic system uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to straighten your teeth over time. The aligners can be used to correct mild to moderate crowding or spacing issues, and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.  

Which cosmetic treatment is right for me?

When it comes to correcting a cosmetic dental flaw, there’s often more than one treatment approach that can effectively address the problem. For example, a patient who has a chipped front tooth may be able to correct it with bonding, veneers, or even a porcelain crown.

To determine which approach best meets your individual needs, Dr. Kuo will perform a comprehensive oral exam and evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. Based on his assessment, he can let you know your options, address any concerns you may have, and help you understand what you can expect from each procedure.
