What Exactly is Cosmetic Dentistry and What Services Are Offered?

They say the “eyes are the window to the soul,” and while that may be true for some, for others, a smile can be just as telling! Having a smile you are confident in can boost your confidence, help you to feel youthful and vibrant, and can help spread a little (or a lot) of happiness. That’s why Dr. Anatoliy Ravin and the entire Hospital Dental Group are dedicated to providing the very best in cosmetic dentistry services. We want you to look and feel your very best, so you can share your smile with the world.

In a 2015 report, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that 86 percent of cosmetic dentistry recipients sought a procedure to “improve physical attractiveness and self-esteem.” Other top reasons for seeking cosmetic dentistry include restorative purposes, an upcoming event, to improve career confidence, and to feel more youthful. At HDG, we understand and value whatever reason has you brought you to us for a cosmetic dental procedure. That’s why we offer a variety of services to meet the previously mentioned goals and more, including:

  • cosmetic dentistrySmile Design – This is a highly customizable and individualized process, in which Dr. Ravin will assess various factors including the shape of your face, eye color, natural tooth structure, skin tone, and more to determine what treatment option(s) to pursue. In certain cases, teeth may require an adjustment to be straightened and better aligned. In these instances, Dr. Ravin may recommend Invisalign clear aligners. In other scenarios, Dr. Ravin may suggest more than one cosmetic dental service to achieve your desired look, such as any of the following options (below).
  • Porcelain Crowns and Veneers – Veneers cover the front of the teeth through a bonding process to improve any number of abnormalities and imperfections, including staining or discoloration of the teeth, odd/uneven spacing between teeth, crooked teeth, and odd-shaped and size of teeth. Porcelain veneers look and feel very similar to natural teeth and are long lasting.
  • Teeth Whitening – The foods we eat and the beverages we drink can stain teeth over time. At HDG we offer both in-office teeth whitening and at-home trays and strips. Our method of teeth whitening will lighten teeth several shades resulting in an ultra-white, bright smile.
  • Porcelain Inlays and Onlays – Opposed to more antiquated gold fillings, Dr. Ravin offers attractive, tooth-blending porcelain inlays and onlines to restore teeth. Inlays and onlays settle into the inner grooves and cusps of the tooth, providing strong reinforcement with a natural appearance.

To know for certain which cosmetic dentistry service is best for you, we’ll help you to set-up a consultation. During your visit, you’ll receive a full examination and have an opportunity to ask questions, share your goals, and learn more about our different cosmetic dentistry options.
