Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry uses dental restorations, whitening treatments, and specialized instruments like soft tissue lasers to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. 

Though most cosmetic procedures are considered elective, some provide the additional benefit of improved oral health. For example, by replacing a missing tooth with a bridge or dental implant, you can reduce the risk of gum recession and bone loss.

What services does cosmetic dentistry provide?

At Cary Smiles, the team offers a variety of cosmetic dental services, including:


Veneers are incredibly thin shells of porcelain bonded to your natural teeth. They cover up minor oral imperfections like stains, gaps, or unusually shaped teeth and make your smile appear more balanced and symmetrical.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening uses bleaching solutions to eliminate stains and discoloration. This type of cosmetic dentistry is particularly beneficial for people who use tobacco or drink beverages with tannins, like coffee, tea, cola, or red wine.

Cosmetic gum contouring

Cosmetic gum contouring uses a soft tissue laser to eliminate excess gum tissue. It’s a quick, convenient, and virtually pain-free way to eliminate a “gummy” smile.

Dental implants

Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots inserted into your jaw. Over time, the implants integrate with your natural bone structure, providing a base for dental restorations like crowns, a fixed bridge, or snap-on dentures.


A bridge fills a gap in your smile. The team at Cary Smiles offers fixed and removable dental bridges. The type that will benefit you most depends on your dental health history, budget, and goals.

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign

If you have crowded, crooked, or misaligned teeth, your Cary Smiles provider might recommend Invisalign®. Invisalign uses plastic mouthpieces to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. It’s a quick, convenient, and discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.

Do I qualify for cosmetic dentistry?

Anyone who wants a beautiful, Hollywood-worthy smile can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Following a comprehensive oral assessment and a discussion of your goals, the team at Cary Smiles can develop a custom treatment plan that helps you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
