Cosmetic dentistry is a specialized form of dentistry that focuses on improving both the look and function of your smile by transforming the size, shape, color, alignment, and spacing of your teeth. There are a variety of cosmetic dental treatments available that can be used to achieve anything from a minimal correction to a dramatic smile makeover. Not only that, but cosmetic restorations are fabricated to look indistinguishable from real teeth, which gives your smile a natural appearance.
Cosmetic dental treatments can include:
- Crowns & Bridges
- Dental Bonding
- Dental Implants
- Tooth-Colored Fillings
- Teeth Whitening

Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?
You may be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry if you have healthy teeth with imperfections affecting their size, shape, color, alignment, or spacing. In some cases, cosmetic dentistry can also be used to restore damaged or decayed teeth to improve their appearance. However, it is important to note that cosmetic dentistry will not change your entire appearance and is instead used to make your teeth complement the rest of your face. To determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, schedule a consultation with one of our dentists at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry today.
What can I expect during a cosmetic dental appointment at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry?
During your cosmetic dental appointment at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry, you can expect to discuss your concerns with one of our dentists.
