Cosmetic Dentistry in Cary, NC


What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?


We all hope to have a beautiful smile. However, it’s not always as simple as having good oral hygiene or visiting the dentist for cleanings and exams. Even with the best dental care, there are problems that are out of your control that can mar your smile. From fixing chipped teeth to straightening your teeth, cosmetic dentistry in Cary, NC, can help perfect your smile. Dr. Leedy and his dental team believe cosmetic dentistry is just as important as general dentistry in giving you the smile you want.


How Does Cosmetic Dentistry Differ From General Dentistry?


General dentistry provides care for your overall oral health. It involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of dental conditions. A general dentist is important for routine care and cleanings, as well as treating problems such as cavities

Aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry refers to treatments that improve the overall appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile. A cosmetic dentist is important for fixing problems that affect the appearance of your smile, such as discolored teeth.


What Conditions Does a Cosmetic Dentist Treat?


There are several conditions that can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Even badly damaged teeth can benefit from cosmetic dentistry.

    • Broken or chipped teeth
    • Discolored teeth
    • Misaligned teeth
    • Crowded teeth
    • Crooked teeth
    • Gapped or widely spaced teeth

What Are Cosmetic Dental Procedures in Cary?

  • Professional teeth whitening: Also called teeth bleaching, professional whitening removes stains or discolorations and brightens your smile. Even with no obvious discoloration, teeth whitening can be beneficial for almost everyone. We offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments.
  • Natural crowns and veneers: Natural crowns are specifically designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. Veneers are adhered to the front of the teeth. They correct broken and chipped teeth and provide a more natural look than other options.
  • Invisalign clear aligners: Traditional metal braces are uncomfortable and cumbersome. Invisalign aligners can be used to align teeth and fix crowding or crooked teeth without traditional braces. You can also remove clear aligners to brush your teeth and enjoy your favorite foods.

What Should You Look For in a Cosmetic Dentist in Cary, NC?


Above all else, you should feel comfortable with your dentist, cosmetic or otherwise. 

Your cosmetic dentist in Cary, NC, will ask you what aspects of your smile you would like to fix rather than telling you their opinion on what is wrong. Your dentist should respect your feelings about your appearance and encourage your opinions and goals for your smile. 

Additionally, finding a dentist who is experienced in aesthetic dentistry is important. Cosmetic dentists often take continuing education courses and complete specialized training to provide cosmetic services.

Having a smile that makes you feel beautiful is important and can boost your confidence and self-esteem. If there are aspects of your smile that you are not happy with, cosmetic dentistry can help give you the smile you want.
