What is cosmetic dentistry?
In dentistry, procedures used to treat dental issues, such as fillings or broken teeth, are restorative treatments and used to aid your oral health. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, is explicitly used to improve the appearance of your smile, whether it is related to your teeth or your gums.
What issues can be treated with cosmetic dentistry?

Common issues include chipped, worn, broken, and discolored teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can also address the alignment of the teeth, as well as gaps.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures
We are proud to offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments at Bishop & Bishop Dental.
- Teeth whitening: One of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve a smile. While there are many options available over-the-counter, there is no method that can compare with the results of professional whitening treatment.
- Dental bonding: a putty-like resin is applied to the teeth to change the shape of the tooth. It is a noninvasive method to repair chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth.
- Dental crowns: custom-made to fit over and completely cover a decayed or damaged tooth. It can restore or alter the size, shape, and even strength of a tooth. Dental veneers are a similar treatment but only cover the front of the teeth.
- Tooth replacement: Missing teeth can be restored with methods such as bridges, dentures, or dental implants. These treatments are effective not only for restoring the appearance of a smile, but also its function.
