Cosmetic Dentistry at Desert Smiles Dentistry in Phoenix, AZ

The dentistry field is divided into several different specializations. One of these specializations is cosmetic dentistry, or the practice of dental work specifically dedicated to positively change the physical appearance of a patient’s smile. Cosmetic dentistry is more focused on improving the aesthetics of a patient’s teeth, gums or bite, rather than a patient’s oral hygiene or specific functions of the mouth. However, some cosmetic dental procedures correct functional problems with a patient’s bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure, as well. For example, a cosmetic dentist may practice composite bonding on a patient, which includes repairing chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth. The result is a high-quality improvement in tooth structure, functionality and a healthy, bright smile.
