Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetic issues associated with your teeth and smile. These include a variety of dental problems, like misshapen, uneven, or misaligned teeth, as well as:

  • Spaces or gaps
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Breaks, wear, or chips


Cosmetic dental procedures at MediDental Care vary in complexity and duration depending on your overall needs and the extent of your restoration. In some cases, a single office visit can improve your teeth while other procedures, like a total smile makeover, may take a series of appointments. Also, if your teeth have underlying oral health issues like decay or disease, your dentist must treat those problems before your cosmetic procedures begin.

What is teeth whitening?

One of the easiest ways to improve your smile is through professional teeth whitening. The MediDental Care team offer two options: in-office laser whitening and at-home bleaching trays.

In-office laser teeth whitening

This technique uses heat to trigger and accelerate the bleaching process. You receive immediate results up to 10 shades brighter with a single laser whitening session.

At-home bleaching trays

For professional results at home, MediDental Care provides custom-made bleaching trays.

This teeth whitening system can take as little as 15 minutes, but MediDental Care makes recommendations depending on your discoloration and specific needs.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that your dentist bonds to the exterior of your tooth. This cosmetic dentistry treatment corrects a variety of aesthetic issues, including:

  • Signs of decay
  • Gaps or alignment issues
  • Malformed, broken, or chipped teeth
  • Tooth staining that doesn’t respond to whitening


When your dentist applies your veneers, they remove a small amount of your tooth’s surface. This enamel removal eliminates bulk, improves fit, and ensures a natural appearance.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth. During this cosmetic procedure, your dentist places an artificial tooth root in your jawbone. Once it fuses in your jawbone, it can support prosthetic teeth.

Based on the number and location of teeth you’re replacing, your dentist might recommend a crown or dental bridge. If you’re missing numerous teeth, dental implants are also used to support specific types of dentures, like Valplast®.
