Traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral disease. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth and smile.
Cosmetic dentistry may also provide restorative benefits. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth.
In short, cosmetic dentistry offers many options for people who are unhappy with their smile. If you are one of these people, we invite you to call Dr. Yoshida’s office in Scotts Valley at 831.438.8706—or send us an email— so we can discuss the various treatments available to beautify your smile.
