Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of a person's teeth, gums, and smile. While traditional dentistry primarily focuses on oral health, cosmetic dentistry primarily aims to enhance the aesthetic aspects of a person's smile.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures can address various dental issues, such as teeth discoloration, misalignment, chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, and irregular tooth shape or size. These procedures can help improve the overall appearance, symmetry, and proportion of the teeth, resulting in a more attractive smile.
It's important to note that while cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of the smile, it also contributes to oral health. Many cosmetic procedures can improve the functionality and longevity of teeth in addition to enhancing their appearance.
