The term cosmetic dentistry can be a little misleading. Although many cosmetic dental procedures are performed for the sole purpose of making your smile look better, certain procedures can also improve your oral health and quality of life by replacing damaged or missing teeth. In addition to making your teeth whiter (which studies have shown can make people look several years younger in many cases), cosmetic dentistry procedures can change the size, shape, and alignment of your teeth - which is why it has been called both an art and a science! The dentists at Abington Dental Arts, PC in Clarks Summit, PA offer a number of solutions to improve damaged and discolored teeth.

Even people with little to no oral health issues can benefit from cosmetic dental improvements from time to time. Stained and discolored teeth are usually the number one complaint, but chipped, cracked and missing teeth are also a common problem for many American adults (close to half of adults over the age of 30 are missing at least one tooth according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

- Teeth whitening

Sometimes cosmetic and restorative dental services overlap, such as with missing teeth or bite and alignment problems that require orthodontic treatment.
But even if your teeth are healthy, cosmetic dentistry is still an option for you if you'd like to improve or change the size, shape, spacing or color of your teeth for a more flattering and aesthetic look.
