Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on addressing dental aesthetics. It focuses on the repair of worn, discolored, broken, chipped, deformed and stained teeth, as well as tooth hollows. The American Dental Association (ADA) does not offer an official certification or board specialty for cosmetic dentistry, but dentists can gain the necessary skills and knowledge through years of training. A cosmetic dentist is responsible for a variety of procedures, from minor repairs to major surgeries.
They are qualified and equipped to straighten crooked teeth and work closely with orthodontics to arrange coordinated treatment plans. Cosmetic dentists also strive to provide good oral care while giving you a white, fresh and natural smile. Cosmetic dentists attend professional courses or programs to acquire specific training in the field of aesthetics and develop certain skills that will help improve the appearance of your teeth. They use a composite filling to match the color of your teeth and apply a moldable resin to the tooth for dental bonding, which is then hardened with ultraviolet light. If you're missing a tooth, it's important to make an appointment with a cosmetic dentist. At Rohrer Dental Wellness Center, we believe that aesthetic dentistry should complement the patient's general and oral health.
We strive to provide the highest quality treatment for patients who want to maintain their health, function and appearance throughout life. If you would like to learn more about the difference between a cosmetic dentist and a general dentist, feel free to email or call us.
