What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) is the primary dental resource for patients as they strive to maintain their health, function, and appearance for their lifetime. We believe that esthetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient. Learn more.
Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from a basic color correction to replacing missing teeth, and everything in between. Explore your options at Your Smile Becomes You.
