Pursuing cosmetic dentistry is a big deal, and an exciting one. Anyone interested in a smile makeover is curious about how the process works and what options are right for them. Here are some of the most common cosmetic dentistry questions answered so you can begin to plan your own transformation.

1. What is the fastest way to get a smile makeover?

Professional teeth whitening is fastest cosmetic dentistry treatment that delivers a complete overhaul. In just about an hour, teeth can be multiple shades whiter and brighter – they’ll look perfect even if they’re not.

2. Can I get one cosmetic dentistry treatment that fixes everything?

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments. If you have chips, stains, cracks, gaps, short teeth, and beyond, customized veneers can conceal all the imperfections at the same time.

3. How do celebrities get such great teeth?

They go to exceptional cosmetic dentists, of course! And you can too. Your Rye cosmetic dentist is experienced at crafting and creating customized smile makeovers that make you look like a VIP.

4. Is there a non-invasive version of porcelain veneers?

Yes, Lumineers are a less-invasive version of porcelain veneers. The porcelain shields are thinner – but just as strong – and don’t require excessive removal of tooth enamel to fit on your teeth.

5. What if I just want to fix one or two teeth?

Cosmetic dentistry comes in all shapes and sizes to suit every patient’s unique oral health needs. Don’t shy away from aesthetic upgrades because you think your wishes aren’t “enough.” One tooth can be corrected with one veneer or one porcelain crown or dental bonding and take your smile from so-so to spectacular.

6. Does cosmetic dentistry require special upkeep?

For most aesthetic dentistry treatments, no special efforts are needed to keep them looking good. However, this is only true if you do the bare minimum in TLC – brush twice daily, floss once a day, and see your dentist every six months for a checkup and teeth cleaning.

7. How do I know you can fix what’s wrong with my tooth?

Even if the problem(s) you have with your teeth seem extreme or unfixable, they’re not. Your cosmetic dentist is a master in the art of transforming teeth from unhealthy to healthy, unsightly to beautiful. Whatever is wrong with your smile, it can be fixed with time, patience, and expertise.

8. Is there non-invasive cosmetic dentistry treatment?

The least-invasive treatment is dental bonding. Surface problems like stains, chips, and minor decay can be corrected without the need for numbing agents thanks to dental bonding, plus the procedure typically takes only about 30 minutes per tooth to complete.

9. Does every dentist practice cosmetic dentistry?

Every dentist is not trained in the fine art of cosmetic dentistry, but Dr. Chi Fu and his dental team at Chester Hill Dentistry are. Always go to an experienced cosmetic dentist for the smile upgrade you’re envisioning.
