Cosmetic dentistry is generally used instead of orthodontic dentistry to describe any type of dental procedure that simply enhances the look of bite, teeth and/or gums. It mainly focuses on enhancement in dental aesthetics, such as color, size, shape, alignment and even overall smile look. As the term suggests, it is only the cosmetic dentistry which is undertaken to improve the way a person looks rather than his or her orthodontic teeth and oral cavity. Cosmetic dentists therefore mostly work on cosmetic issues for the purpose of improving the look of your smile. Have a look at New Bremen Cosmetic Dentistry for more info on this.

A majority of dentists follow the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as their professional association. The academy has set out certain standards for practicing cosmetic dentistry in the United States along with specific regulations for the state in which you live. All the accredited members of the academy have been thoroughly trained on the particular areas of practice related to the discipline. They also undergo rigorous practical training involving various aspects of human anatomy and dental science.

One of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry includes teeth whitening. This procedure involves the use of a bleaching agent in the pulp of the tooth and therefore works on removing stains on the surface rather than in the inner layers of the tooth where most stains are formed. Another common procedure in cosmetic dentistry includes porcelain veneers and dental implants. Dental implants, in particular are used by people who have lost one or more teeth and need artificial teeth to bridge the gap between the missing teeth.
