Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Traditional dentistry focuses on preventing, detecting, and treating oral disease, as well as fixing critical conditions that can impact your health. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth, and smile.

Cosmetic dental procedures are elective — or optional — though they often offer restorative benefits as well. Materials used in today’s cosmetic dentistry look and feel like real teeth.

They’re also more durable than ever, designed to last a lifetime. Modern cosmetic dentistry offers patients the camera-ready smiles they’ve always dreamed of.

What kind of cosmetic dentistry treatments are available?

Cosmetic dental procedures fix any imperfections in your smile that impair your self-confidence. Painless cosmetic procedures address issues with tooth color, spacing, and alignment. Some of the most common cosmetic procedures Dr. Tsiolas performs include:


Dental veneers are thin sheets of composite resin attached to your teeth to repair cracks or chips, cover severe discolorations, and fill minor gaps. Veneers preserve more of the tooth than do crowns and are good for patients with large fillings. Dr. Tsiolas customizes your veneers to blend in flawlessly with your real teeth.  


Tooth whitening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to transform your smile. Years of stains from smoking, drinking, eating, and poor oral hygiene can be erased in one or a few office visits using professional tooth whitening. Dr. Tsiolas recommends Zoom! Whitening for many patients because it can brighten teeth 6 to 10 shades within days of treatment.


Used to fix tooth alignment, spacing, and bite issues, Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable aligners that gently shift teeth into the desired location. They can be removed for eating and brushing, and they offer results up to 50% faster than other straightening methods.
