Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide variety of treatments that focus on improving one’s appearance by addressing issues with the teeth. According to Dr. Jolene Dague at Dague Dental Solutions, this typically means improving some combination of their color, position, shape, size and alignment. Occasionally, problems involving the gums and bite must also be addressed. Today, advancements in cosmetic dentistry allow astonishing smile makeovers that weren’t possible as recently as a decade ago. These advances coupled with a greater awareness of the societal value of a dazzling smile, have made cosmetic dentistry the fastest-growing segment of dental practice.
