How Do I Know If I'm a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dental Treatment?

Cosmetic dental treatments can address:

  • Severe staining and discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen or irregularly sized teeth
  • Minor chips or cracks
  • Missing teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Alignment or bite issues, etc. 

If you’re dealing with such issues, you may fix them through cosmetic dentistry, as long as you have healthy teeth. People dealing with dental issues such as cavities or gum disease are usually not good candidates for cosmetic dental treatment. 

Dr. Khanani will recommend restoring your oral health first, after which you can start improving your teeth’s appearance as well. Cosmetic treatments aren’t designed to treat teeth, so even if you get their appearance improved, your oral health could still be getting worse. 

Many dental problems can also be responsible for changes in your smile’s appearance. For example, a large cavity can darken a tooth, while plaque and tartar buildup can make the teeth more yellow. 

Types of Cosmetic Dental Treatments 

Cosmetic dental treatments are those designed to change a tooth’s appearance and offer no or only minimal improvements to the function of your smile. 

Common cosmetic dentistry treatments in Holden can include: 

  • Teeth whitening: is used to remove severe stains and tooth discoloration and achieve a whiter smile;
  • Veneers: are thin layers of porcelain that cover the tooth surface and instantly change its appearance;
  • Dental bonding: is a special resin material used to reshape a tooth or close gaps between teeth;
  • Clear aligners: are a brace-free orthodontic procedure that can improve the position of your teeth.

What Treatment Is Best for You? 

Choosing a cosmetic dental treatment ultimately comes down to the imperfections you’re dealing with and the type of results you want. 

You can access the best path toward a stunning smile during a consultation with Dr. Khanani, which will focus on: 

  • Your current oral health
  • Your smile expectations 

Dr. Khanani can present your options and help you weigh the pros and cons of each cosmetic procedure. This way, you can make the best decision regarding your smile’s look and even improve your oral health in the process.
