Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

A healthy set of vibrant teeth often contributes to your confidence and well-being. Cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance these factors by improving your natural smile and replacing damaged or lost teeth if necessary. 

There are many procedures categorized as cosmetic dentistry, such as:

Teeth whitening

While many over-the-counter solutions exist, in-house teeth whitening with the team at AB Dental & Oral Surgery offers more effective results. This procedure leaves you with whiter, stain-free teeth. Teeth whitening procedures often use safe peroxide solutions to achieve maximum results.


Veneers cover your teeth to remedy discolored and damaged teeth. You can opt for veneers for entire sets of teeth or just a few. 


Invisalign offers an effective and invisible orthodontic solution. Unlike traditional braces that often require metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses transparent and innovative technology to position your teeth and create a stronger bite. 

Is cosmetic dentistry the same as restorative dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry often overlaps with restorative dentistry. Some procedures, such as teeth whitening, offer only cosmetic benefits. However, others, like dental implants, enhance the appearance of your smile while contributing to jaw stability. 

What are the advantages of cosmetic dentistry?

There are several upsides to cosmetic dentistry, such as:


  • Brighter and whiter teeth
  • Stain-free teeth
  • Correction of chipped teeth and overall shape
  • Better smile symmetry
  • Replacement of missing teeth
  • Higher self-esteem


Services can range from simple to complex. AB Dental & Oral Surgery walks you through several options and helps you select a customized service to address your cosmetic concerns. 

How long is the recovery period of a cosmetic dentistry procedure?

Recovery times following a cosmetic treatment vary. Less invasive procedures, like teeth whitening, require no downtime, and you can proceed with your daily activities. More advanced and involved treatments that may use surgery tend to need a few days of recovery at a minimum. 

After your cosmetic treatments, your practitioner provides you with an aftercare plan to best support your health. Follow the instructions to the best of your ability to reduce your recovery time and avoid potential complications.
