As of 2015, popular cosmetic dentistry services include teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, crowns and enamel shaping, according to WebMD. Braces, bridges, implants and peridontal plastic procedures are also common.
Dentists can bleach teeth during an in-office session or by providing a kit to use at home. Whitening treatment does not clean teeth, so it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene, explains WebMD. Dentists use enamel shaping and bonding to alter the appearance of teeth. Enamel shaping can correct crooked, overlapping and chipped teeth. Dentists often combine enamel shaping with bonding. Dentists use bonding to treat small cavities or to protect exposed roots by applying bonding material to the tooth.
