What are the benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?


Achieving a healthy smile is a considerable achievement, but for many patients, it’s not the end of their treatment goals. They’re seeking to improve the appearance of their teeth as well, whether that means erasing stains, closing gaps, or covering up structural damage. At Lifetime Dentistry, we enjoy being able to improve both a patient’s smile and self-confidence with the help of transformative cosmetic dentistry solutions.

And studies have proven that a brilliant smile will boost your self-confidence, make you happier, and literally add a few years to your life.

What is a Smile Makeover?


A smile makeover is exactly what it sounds like: a combination of one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of the smile. Typically, a smile makeover will include porcelain veneers, though many other cosmetic dentistry services can be involved, such as bonding, teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, Lumineers, dental crowns, implants, or bridges.

A smile makeover is most common for patients with healthy but misaligned or gapped teeth, and a desire to transform their smile into a more aesthetically pleasing one, often boosting confidence and making patients want to show off their pearly whites more frequently.
