What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry describes cosmetic dentistry as a form of dentistry that aims to improve your smile and teeth. Many people view cosmetic dentistry as just a procedure for tooth whitening and applying veneers. However, cosmetic dentistry services offer so much more. A cosmetic dentist can improve your smile’s appearance and your self-confidence. Cosmetic dentistry is not only for cosmetic reasons, but it can also improve the function of your teeth.

There have been many studies on cosmetic dentistry and its safety and effectiveness. The Journal of the American Dental Association published an article in 1999 on the use of cosmetic dentistry to restore youthful smiles. It is stated that “tooth wear over the years alters the appearance and smile in a manner that is perceptible to both dentists and laypeople.” The potential to reverse the aesthetic effects of tooth aging can be achieved by bonding and adhesive ceramic restorative techniques. The article also states that cosmetic enhancements of smiles and teeth can make patients appear younger. This has huge implications for the future of dentistry.

We are happy to announce that the future looks bright. Cosmetic dental procedures are more than just improving the appearance of your smile. For example, missing or broken teeth can have a negative impact on how your teeth function and how much you eat. Cosmetic dentistry can restore missing teeth and improve your ability to chew.

Different types of cosmetic dentistry procedures

Cosmetic dentistry can include many different procedures. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance and functionality of your smile. Dr. Liliana Marshall, a Palm Bay dentist, is highly skilled and experienced in fixing or repairing damaged teeth, straightening and reshaping crooked and reshaping smiles, reshaping and brightening teeth, and many other tasks.

Replacing missing teeth

Missing teeth can affect confidence and affect how you eat. The most effective and popular procedure for this problem is dental implants. Implants look and feel just like natural teeth. We can create an implant bridge if you have multiple missing teeth. This is much more comfortable and secure than removable partial dentures. We also offer partial dentures if you’d like.

A tooth crown might be an option depending on the extent of the tooth’s damage. A dental crown is a full-coverage restoration that fits over a tooth and restores its strength, size, and shape. Crowns are usually used to cover dental implant covers or to strengthen and restore cracked, chipped, or broken teeth.

We recommend calling our office at 321-723-2620 or e-mailing us whenever you need to discuss how to replace missing teeth. Our caring and kind dentist, Dr. Lilly in Palm Bay, FL, can help you make the right choice.

Teeth whitening

Our teeth naturally become duller as we age. This can be due to years of staining or just natural aging. A whiter, brighter smile can make us feel younger. It can also increase self-confidence and self-esteem. After years of research, the American Dental Association has concluded that teeth whitening can be safe. It should only be done by or under the supervision of a dentist. River Oak Dental offers many options for teeth whitening, including at-home and in-office procedures.


Veneers have been a very popular cosmetic procedure in the last decade. Everyone else soon discovered the secret and began to get veneers as celebrities wanted them to improve their smiles. This method is highly effective and popular.

What are they exactly? Veneers, a thin coating made of a ceramic material or composite epoxy, are applied to the front surfaces of the teeth. You will have a beautiful smile thanks to the perfectly shaped and evenly-colored teeth. Over the years, veneers’ safety and effectiveness have been studied. The Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dentistry found that ceramics can mimic human enamel and offer clinicians many options to create highly aesthetic and functional porcelain veneers.
