Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry enhances the appearance of your teeth and gums. This branch of dentistry favors aesthetics over function. If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks, cosmetic treatments can create balance, symmetry, and brightness. 

Dr. James M. Maragos, D.D.S. and the team may recommend cosmetic procedures if you have imperfections in your smile that erode your self-esteem. With an array of treatments at their office, the team can combine multiple procedures to help you achieve your desired smile.

Who benefits from cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic treatments can hide and improve the appearance of many aesthetic dental concerns, such as:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Overly long or short teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Missing teeth

Many cosmetic procedures can also bolster your oral health if your teeth affect your bite.

What treatments does cosmetic dentistry include?

The team performs many cosmetic treatments, such as:

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is best performed with customized whitening trays and a careful selection of the concentration of the whitening gel. This helps ensure it will be a comfortable process in a short amount of time. 


Made of stain-resistant porcelain, veneers are shells that adhere to the surface of your teeth. They can enhance the shape, size, and color of cracked, discolored, or misshapen teeth.

Cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding is an affordable alternative to veneers that can repair small chips and cracks in your teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings use composite resin to fill in areas of decay. The team applies these fillings as a puddy and hardens them with a curing light after each layer, allowing them to cover each crevice.

Crowns and bridges

Crowns and bridges restore damaged, decayed, and missing teeth. A crown is a cap that covers the visible portion of a tooth, while a bridge replaces one or more missing teeth.


Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth. While a partial denture can replace a few teeth, complete dentures can restore all of them.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium replacement roots that replace your natural root and stabilize your prosthetic teeth. 

Invisalign® clear aligners

Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear aligners to straighten teeth and correct orthodontic concerns for a more attractive smile.
