If you desire a perfect smile, there are several solutions that can help. Whether you want to remodel a misshapen tooth, completely realign your teeth, or whiten your smile, it can usually be achieved one way or another with professional help.
Both cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics are options that can upgrade the aesthetics – as well as the health – of your teeth. If you wish to correct any imperfections, it’s important to be aware of which treatment will work best for your condition.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can make significant improvements to your teeth. It refers to a variety of dental procedures intended to restore damaged teeth or replace missing teeth. These procedures are usually elective, but in some cases they also provide restorative benefits. The most common conditions treated are for chipped, discoloured, deformed, missing or crooked teeth.
There is a variety of procedures performed in cosmetic dentistry to correct these conditions.

The most common include:

Cosmetic dentistry is beneficial as it can improve your smile while also boosting your confidence. Depending on your specific complaint, your dentist will be able to recommend a treatment plan to suit.

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics refers to a branch of dentistry that focuses on the misalignment of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontists offer a wide selection of treatments to straighten teeth, fix bad bites, and realign the jaw. Available treatments include:

Orthodontics has also been known to treat temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) as it can improve the function and alignment of the jaw so it’s no longer under any strain, easing the TMD symptoms.

While many might choose orthodontics for aesthetic purposes, straight teeth also serve a functional purpose and contribute to your overall oral health. For one, they’re easier to brush and floss, which reduces the risk of decay or further damage.
