Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry services are aimed at enhancing the overall appearance of the teeth and smile, helping individuals achieve a more attractive and confident smile. These procedures can address various cosmetic concerns, such as tooth discoloration, misalignment, gaps between teeth, chipped or damaged teeth, and other imperfections that may affect the appearance of one's smile.

Common cosmetic dentistry procedures can include:

  • Veneers
  • Teeth whitening
  • Reshaping and realignment
  • Ceramic crowns or caps 

Another popular cosmetic dentistry service at The Brooklyn Dental Center is the smile makeover. A smile makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that combines various cosmetic dental procedures to transform the appearance of a person's smile. 

Cosmetic dentistry aims to create natural-looking, harmonious smiles that enhance your overall appearance and self-confidence. Dr. Mahadkar has many years of experience in cosmetic dentistry and uses her knowledge and expertise to help her patients achieve the smile of their dreams.

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry offers several benefits including a brighter smile, healthier looking gums, and overall enhanced facial structure. Cosmetic dentistry offers many procedures that help to improve the appearance of the entire face by making it look more balanced and natural. Many cosmetic procedures and techniques are noninvasive and produce minimal side effects.

While many cosmetic procedures require some degree of numbness or partial sedation, few require full sedation and you can often return to your normal daily activities shortly after leaving the dentist's office. 

Whether you’re looking for a brighter smile, the re-alignment of your teeth, or the repair of a cracked or broken tooth, The Brooklyn Dental Center offers many solutions to address these needs. Patients who visit Dr. Mahadkar can learn the benefits of cosmetic dentistry first hand by discussing their options during a consultation.

Can cosmetic procedures be considered restorative?

Most cosmetic procedures are aesthetic in nature. That means their primary function is to make the teeth, gums, smile, and facial structure more visually appealing. There are instances, however, when cosmetic procedures can be used to restore proper form and function to the mouth. If an abnormality has been repaired, Dr. Mahadkar may use a cosmetic procedure to help make the area look more natural, like it didn't even need a cosmetic procedure.

Dr. Mahadkar can also repair broken or cracked teeth with cosmetic procedures, allowing the you to chew more efficiently and improve digestion. The use of flexible dentures can also help to improve the look of a person's smile, especially if they have one or more teeth missing. Crowns and caps can also restore the surface area of the back teeth helping to maintain proper alignment of the jaws.
