Cosmetic dentistry isn’t only intended to improve your physical appearance. It is a type of dentistry that focuses on restoring teeth to their most optimal state of both structure and function. In short, cosmetic dentistry is a combination of tooth restoration and repair to achieve a more natural-looking smile using proper color and alignment of teeth. Tooth trauma is a common reason as to what prompts people to seek cosmetic dentistry. Tooth trauma can cause a person to have an aesthetic flaw within your smile, which is why Dr. Robbie Keels can fix the gap, tooth crack, misshapen tooth, or discoloration. We at Keels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can restore your smile through professional teeth whitening, create beautiful dental veneers, provide dental implants, or provide you with a full or partial set of dentures. Our goal is to help your smile shine bright, and be complete in its functionality. How does tooth cosmetic dentistry work? Some may think that the only solution to a damaged or decayed tooth is through its complete removal and replacement with an artificial implant. However, there is actually another option – assess, and create a dental plan. For example, if you have sustained a chipped tooth, then applying a cosmetic dental veneer can help restore your tooth’s natural beauty and shape.
