Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

What are some of the first things we think of when we think about procedures to improve our appearance? Most people might think of traditional cosmetic surgeries like: breast augmentation, face and neck lifts, or liposuction. Those are definitely popular surgeries, and done right, they can make huge improvements on your life. Many people unfortunately do not understand the massive change your teeth and smile can have on your appearance. 

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the modern wonders of the 21st century for people looking to improve their look. And dentists who are good at what they do can now improve the functional and aesthetic health of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry has actually been around for a while and as such there is a wide array of cosmetic procedures available when it comes to your teeth. 

Gum lift

A very commonly performed dental cosmetic procedure is a gum lift. Most people think of just their teeth when they imagine dental cosmetic surgery, but the teeth are not always the main issue. If you have uneven or excessive gums or a ‘gummy smile’, your teeth may look unbalanced, uneven, and possibly unpleasant to the eye. In this case the Doctor will use a special laser to  remove and straighten excessive gums, giving you a natural beautiful smile.

Probably the most well known cosmetic dentistry procedure. In fact, veneers technology has come a really long way and is now a highly profitable and highly effective cosmetic surgery. Patients are now able to choose the size, shape and color of their desired teeth. Veneers can fix teeth with a whole host of problems including: cracked teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth and these days even teeth that need complete restoration. Dentists will take 3D scans of your teeth and then send that to a laboratory where the lab technicians will create a tooth that will perfectly fit over yours. Some clinics are some efficient and skilled that all of this can be done IN ONE DAY! And all of this is done with minimal shaving of your real teeth. 

Dental Implants

Do you have a missing tooth? Maybe from an accident or just severe decay. These days people don’t really use dentures anymore as there are now more viable alternatives available. Another common procedure is dental implants. If the rest of your teeth are still healthy you might consider an implant. With dental implants, an artificial tooth is used. The Doctor will secure a fitting into the jaw bone and then after that the implant will be fitted to the fitting, leaving you with a natural feeling and looking smile. 

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is not a new type of cosmetic dental procedure but there are some new techniques that go even further than just normal tooth whitening. Conventional whitening can only do so much. In the case of severe discoloration, you can undergo a complete whitening restoration. Whitening restoration helps for people who have damaged teeth due to coffee, smoking, aging and illness. 



These are just a few of the many cosmetic dental procedures available today. Obviously there is no better place than Korea to have your dental restoration done. Korea is the leading global destination for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures.
