A traditional Mills River Dentist will focus on the treatment and prevention of cavities. They usually offer advice and tips on how to practice good oral health. A cosmetic dentist focuses on a very different field of dentistry and they are working to improve the appearance of your teeth. Most of the people that contact a Birmingham Dental office for cosmetic dentistry needs are looking to improve the color of their teeth, shape of their teeth, or their smile.

Genetics can cause many people to be born with soft teeth enamel, which can lead to a lot of problems. You will have yellowing teeth and they are often prone to decay. A cosmetic Dentist will be able to use teeth whitening, crowns, or dental veneers to improve the teeth.
Another common process is to replace the older fillings in your teeth. Decayed teeth need to have dental fillings in order to provide you with a stronger tooth. Older silver or gold fillings can be very ugly to many people and they can also leave visible dark spots on your teeth. Replacing these fillings with a composite material will provide you with a white tooth again. They may also replace the tooth entirely with a crown, which is essentially a new tooth. Smile makeovers are a growing trend in many cosmetic dental offices.
A smile makeover is where the dentist will take a look at how your teeth are aligned and look for ways to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Using invisible braces to straighten out the teeth is common along with using dental veneers to help seal gaps between teeth and repair misshapen teeth is also quite common. Dental implants may also be necessary if you have missing teeth or teeth that are severely decayed and cannot be saved using other methods like bridges and crowns.
