Dentistry is one of the oldest medical professions, dating back to 7000 B.C. with the Indus Valley Civilization.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bites. It primarily focuses on improved dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Types of services cosmetic dentist provide are implants, veneers, bridges, crowns, and dentures.
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, veneers improve the aesthetics of a smile and protect the tooth’s surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants. A bridge will span the area where teeth are missing. They are attached to the natural teeth or implants that surround this space. The natural teeth or implants which support the bridge are called abutments.
