Cosmetic dentistry: how well do you know the term? Here at Parham Dental, we offer services in cosmetic dentistry. Here are the basics:

Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental procedure that changes, shifts or replaces teeth to improve its overall appearance.

Many dental procedures can qualify as Cosmetic Dentistry, but many of these can fit into multiple categories. Here is a description of what services might fit under a cosmetic dental lens:

 Orthodontics:  Straight teeth and a proper jaw placement are major factors toward long-term dental health, but patients often seek orthodontics simply for a beautiful bite. Dr. Van Parham is trained to fit you or your child with Invisalign, a special type of clear, discrete braces.

 Restoration: Are your teeth are discolored, decayed or chipped? Dental bonding uses materials like resin or plastic to chemically bond to your teeth. It’s a quick, noninvasive procedure that improves the look of your smile. Veneers such as porcelain Lumineers or crowns can restore chipped, cracked and weak teeth. Parham Dental can restore your smile with veneers or dental bonding, and even give it an extra sparkle with chairside teeth bleaching. Procedures like Botox and dermal fillers can restore the youthful look of your face.

 Tooth Replacement: Dental implants, bridges and dentures fit into this category. They replace any of your lost teeth, which in turn improves the overall appeal of your smile. Dentures can fill out your face as well, giving you a younger appearance.
