Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Greyling Dental


What is cosmetic dentistry?

Simply stated, cosmetic dentistry refers to dental procedures that improve the appearance of your teeth. Discolored, chipped, or missing teeth can be embarrassing. If you are self-conscious about your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Implants
  • Crowns
  • Orthodontics (including braces and Invisalign®)

Even serious dental problems can often be corrected with cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dr.  Vargas-Velasco can help you review your options for improving the appearance of your teeth.

What problems can cosmetic dentistry fix?

Many people are dissatisfied with the color of their teeth. Even healthy teeth can become stained or discolored over time. Teeth whitening products and procedures can help remove stains to brighten your smile.

Dental implants, veneers, and crowns may also fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry. These procedures help repair or replace teeth that are missing, cracked, or chipped.

Cosmetic dentistry can also fix crooked or misaligned teeth. Clear aligners like Invisalign adjust the placement of your teeth gradually for a straighter smile.

What types of cosmetic dentistry are offered at Greyling Dental?

If you are interested in options to straighten your teeth, Greyling Dental offers both Invisalign and ClearCorrect™. Both options use clear aligners that are discreet and comfortable. You can easily remove the aligners when you eat, brush, or floss your teeth.

Greyling Dental also offers Pola Whitening, which involves a specialized whitening gel. This gel is placed in custom-made trays that fit over your teeth. Whitening can take as little as 30 minutes a day.

If you’re looking for procedures to repair cracked or chipped teeth, veneers and crowns can help. Greyling Dental also offers dental implants, which replace missing teeth. Implants often provide a more natural appearance than dentures or bridges, and they can help you feel more confident about your smile.

What results can I expect?

Many cosmetic dentistry procedures offer incredible results. But as with any cosmetic procedure, individual results may vary. If you undergo a cosmetic procedure, it’s important to follow all of Dr. Vargas-Velasco’s directions to improve your outcome.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, Dr. Vargas-Velasco can help you develop a customized plan to improve your smile. Call Greyling Dental today or book an appointment online.
