What is Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not familiar with the term cosmetic dentistry that is performed at Kiefer Family Dental, that is OK. Many are not. Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments aimed at improving the appearance of the teeth. The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of the teeth using bleaching, bonding, veneers, reshaping, orthodontics, or implants. We will go over it here.

Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever. This includes everything from whitening & shaping to closing spaces & replacing teeth. Kiefer Family Dental has a wide array of tools and techniques for improving the look of your smile.

Before deciding to undergo any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to know the benefits and risks and what you can expect during the process. Make sure you’re clear about this, and whether any special maintenance will be needed afterward.


What Types of Cosmetic Dentistry is Offered?

At Kiefer Family Dental we offer cosmetic dentistry services like Zoom Whitening, veneers, and aesthetic crowns.

Zoom whitening (also known as Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed) is an in-office treatment here at Kiefer that uses 25% hydrogen peroxide to remove stains and yellowing, lightening tooth color up to eight shades. Unlike some cosmetic dentistry bleaching techniques, the procedure incorporates a blue light that the manufacturer claims activates the hydrogen peroxide to accelerate teeth whitening.

Another cosmetic procedure we offer are dental veneers. They are a more simple option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They strongly resemble natural teeth. Veneers are used to correct a wide range of dental issues.

Veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin material. Kiefer Family Dental can help you choose the material that is best for you. Each type of veneer has its own benefits.

And then you have premade aesthetic crowns. They are used in general dentistry and save time compared to open-face crowns. These aesthetic crowns come in a few shades and a variety of sizes and can be made of porcelain or metals. Premade aesthetic crowns should look natural and be resistant to discoloration.

The aesthetic crown will wrap and protect the entire surface of the tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth. Crowns work to strengthen the tooth while protecting the existing structure. It extends the life of the tooth longer that it would be with a filling or another restoration.
