If you have problems with your smile, you should consider cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry can relieve all of your problems with your smile, giving you the aesthetic look you’ve always wanted. Of course, if you’re opting for cosmetic dentistry, you should be aware of the different ways to enhance your smile.
There are a variety of procedures to choose from, each of which can address a specific issue. However, determining which procedure is right for you can be a daunting task. Needless to say, you need guidance from professionals to help you determine which procedures are right for you, and the most pragmatic way to approach the choice to get cosmetic dentistry.
How Can Professionals Help Me?
Remember, dental professionals are not exclusively simple practitioners of their field. They are also counselors who can help you to determine exactly what kind of cosmetic procedures are appropriate for your particular condition.
A quality cosmetic dentist can show you the variety of available procedures, and how these particular cosmetic techniques can address and solve your problems.
The Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, you need to know your options. Not only do you need to know your options, you also need to know which types of procedures are appropriate to address your particular condition.
According to some national surveys, the most popular cosmetic procedures, in appropriate order, are:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental implants
- Tooth contouring and reshaping
- Cosmetic gum surgery
- Dental bridges
Needless to say, there are a variety of choices when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. The first thing you should do before you choose a particular service is to evaluate your problems.
Ask yourself: “What are my problems?” and “What procedure is right for me?” After you ask yourself these questions, consult a cosmetic dentist to help you determine the appropriate answers.
Allow our cosmetic and general dentists here at Smiles at Fairfax Corner to show you the benefits of some of the top-ranking cosmetic procedures.
If the major issue with your smile is yellow teeth, then cosmetic whitening is probably the perfect solution for you.
Cosmetic whitening comes in two forms: in-office whitening and at-home whitening.
- In office ZOOM!® whitening will allow you to whiten your smile 6 to 10 shades in about an hour!
- Take-home whitening trays will allow you to whitening your teeth 6 to 10 shades at your own convenience, although the whitening process takes around 4 weeks to accomplish these results.
One of the major deciding factors when it comes to finding the right whitening treatment is, of course, budget. In-office whitening can cost between $500 and $1000, whereas at-home whitening can cost as little as $100.

Third on the list of popular dental procedures are porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain coverings that go over the fronts of your teeth. They are perhaps one of the most versatile procedures in the field of cosmetic dentistry because they can remedy so many problems with your smile. In many cases, they can be a substitute for whitening and Invisalign for people with minor crooked teeth.
Porcelain veneers can remedy the following problems:
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Stained teeth
