Many patients who suffer from damaged, discolored, or missing teeth feel embarrassed by their smile, often becoming less social to avoid negative judgment or steer clear of questions about their oral health.

Making a consultation appointment with us to create a treatment plan and to review the available restoration options is the best start to determining if cosmetic dentistry is right for your smile.
Which Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure Is Right for You?
There are some factors to consider if you are considering cosmetic dentistry. Not every procedure will be appropriate for you, and you may have severe dental concerns that eliminate treatments from the beginning. Before any cosmetic dentistry can be performed Northside Dental will need to evaluate the health and integrity of your jawbone, teeth, and gums.
To begin creating your ideal treatment plan, we start with a consultation appointment. At this visit, Northside Dental will complete several examinations to evaluate your mouth in its current state. These exams might include:
- A comprehensive Oral Exam
- A series of X-rays
- Digital or physical impressions of your arch
- Bite Analysis & TMJ Analysis
- Periodontal (gum) and oral cancer exam
After the required exams are completed, we will create a cosmetic treatment plan designed specifically for you to achieve your desired smile. You may require more extensive restorations due to the loss of functionality or spread of disease or decay which would result in a tooth extraction.
You may have healthy teeth but are looking for a restoration option that covers abnormally shaped teeth or stains. When it comes to dental procedures, every single patient is unique. It is essential for cosmetic dental plans to be tailored specifically to your individual circumstances to achieve the best possible result.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Both cosmetic dentists and patients who have undergone cosmetic dental procedures will agree, there indeed are valuable benefits to achieving an aesthetically pleasing smile. Some of the most popular advantages of cosmetic dentistry include:
- Your teeth look perfectly natural
