What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

In today’s standards, a “beautiful” smile is white, straight, and sparkling. If you look in the mirror and see discoloration, chips, cracks, misalignment, or any other visual problem, Dr. Van Wicklen offers cosmetic treatments that can help fix your defects.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic techniques can change and improve the visual appearance of your smile. The treatment can either correct or cover your tooth imperfections to achieve the bright smile of your dreams. Although cosmetic changes are mostly used for aesthetic appeal to make your smile better to look at, cosmetic enhancements can also help restore problems to make your teeth easier to clean.
