Cosmetic dentistry, as opposed to other fields of dentistry focused on improving the health of teeth, involves procedures primarily focused on achieving a beautiful smile.
Treatments include: professional teeth cleaning, air abrasion, bleaching, veneers or crowns that change the shape and color of teeth, and even orthodontics.
People are beginning to pay more attention to the appearance of teeth. Thus, professional treatments to restore the natural color of the teeth, or to give them a different tint, have become quite common.
Depending on the type and origin of stains, the following methods can be used to whiten teeth:
- Hygienic procedures
- Ceramic or composite fillings (veneers, crowns)
