Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures that aim to improve the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums, and smile. These procedures are for purely aesthetic reasons, and may not necessarily correct functional issues. With the advancements in dental technology, many options are available today to improve the appearance of your smile.

Read more to learn about some cosmetic dentistry options offered by Elite Dental of Summerfield that can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of stained or discolored teeth. It involves using a special bleaching agent that removes stains and discoloration from the teeth. You can perform teeth whitening in-office or at home using custom-made trays provided by your dentist. Teeth whitening can last for one to three years with proper care.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can correct cosmetic dental issues such as chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, and stained or discolored teeth. They are made from porcelain or composite resin and match your natural teeth’ color and shape. With proper care, dental veneers can last for up to 5 to 10 years.


Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces for people who want to straighten their teeth without visible metal brackets and wires. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually shift the teeth into their desired position. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and possible to remove for eating, drinking, and brushing.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically implanted into the jawbone to support replacement teeth. Dental implants are popular for people who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Implants are designed to look and function like natural teeth and can replace a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire arch of teeth. Dental implants require several appointments over several months but can last a lifetime with proper care.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. Bonding can fix chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, close gaps between teeth, and cover stains and discoloration. Dental bonding is a quick and painless procedure that needs only a single visit.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring involves reshaping the gums to improve the appearance of the teeth. Gum contouring can correct a “gummy” smile, in which too much of the gums are visible when a person smiles, and restore uneven or receding gums. Gum contouring uses a laser, which minimizes bleeding and discomfort, and is done in a single visit.
