Cosmetic dentistry is more art than science, and our skilled, and experienced cosmetic dentists can help you to improve the health and appearance of your smile. A beautiful smile results in higher self-esteem, and confidence.
Traditional dentistry focuses on preventing, and treating oral disease while Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth and smile. Cosmetic dentistry provides elective treatments and services.
Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your smile. Today, cosmetic dentistry has evolved to where cosmetic dentists can address functional and esthetic patient concerns.
Cosmetic dentistry provides alternatives to traditional methods of dental treatments. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Most dental fillings are composed of metals that are visibly dark on the teeth. With Cosemtic dentistry, dental fillings are made of porcelain or composite materials that closely match the color of your teeth. This maintains the natural appearance of your teeth and smile.
At Dr. Norma Vazquez DDS we combine technological advancements to provide our patients with natural-looking durable dental materials, as well as, preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.
