Frequently Asked Questions about Cosmetic Dentistry
What exactly is cosmetic dentistry?
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
At Vail Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of self-confidence and self-esteem, especially when it comes to your smile. Our cosmetic dentistry procedures not only enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile but also offer numerous psychological benefits. By addressing any issues or dissatisfaction with your teeth, these procedures can help boost your self-confidence and self-esteem in social and professional situations. Feeling more comfortable and at ease in social settings, smiling and interacting with others becomes effortless. Additionally, a confident smile can have a positive impact on your professional life, from job interviews to networking events. Beyond oral health, cosmetic dental procedures can significantly improve your overall outlook on life, promoting positivity and optimism. It is worth noting that everyone’s experience with the psychological benefits of cosmetic dentistry can vary based on their specific concerns, goals, and expectations. To explore your unique circumstances and discover the potential advantages of cosmetic dentistry, we recommend speaking with a cosmetic dentist.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers, thin shells bonded to the front of the tooth, are a solution for various dental issues. If you need ongoing maintenance for bonding, consider veneers as they tend to last longer. Your dentist can provide guidance on the best material option for you. Different dental veneer materials include porcelain, which mimics natural teeth and is highly durable, stain-resistant, and gum-tolerant. Composite resin veneers, although less durable than porcelain, are easily repaired or replaced. Lumineers are a type of porcelain veneer that requires minimal invasion, no shots or drilling, and less preparation. They can last 10-20 years and can be removed if necessary.

Top 5 reasons people get cosmetic dentistry
Deeply discolored teeth may be the most common problem in cosmetic dentistry. Over time, teeth can become discolored from consuming drinks like red wine and coffee. Discoloration can also happen from medication, aging, smoking cigarettes, or chewing tobacco.
When you lose a tooth, you lose more than a smile. If it is not replaced quickly, bite functionality significantly decreases and the jawbone will begin to shrink away from disuse, causing a sunken look in the face that makes an individual appear much older.
As we age, our teeth become vulnerable. Even without pain or obvious problems, a cracked or broken tooth should be taken seriously! The tooth is now susceptible to decay, is more likely to further crack or break, and you risk losing your tooth completely (whether naturally or via extraction).
Tooth gaps can trap food particles, which may cause plaque and tartar to easily form in those cracks. Filling in problematic gaps in your teeth can help you improve your oral health, and in cases where a gap is unwanted, it will likely even help boost your confidence and self-esteem!
The quickest route to a beautiful smile is fixing crooked teeth. Crooked teeth are hard to keep clean, leading to many problems. Teeth misalignment may occur naturally, or as a result of not wearing a retainer prescribed by your dentist.

Composite White Fillings
The composite white filling is an increasingly popular alternative to the traditional silver amalgam filling. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are virtually invisible, and our team at Vail Family Dentistry can shade them according to the color of your teeth, creating a perfect match and giving you a beautiful, white smile!
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap with a false tooth in between. Made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, bridges restore your smile, prevent further tooth misalignment, and help you chew comfortably.
Dental Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. The resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Bonding benefits both your oral health and improves your appearance by repairing damage, minor flaws, and irregularities in the surface of your teeth. This process is a wonderfully effective and affordable way to make cosmetic improvements to your smile.
Many patients choose veneers as a custom-made option to make their smile sparkle naturally when they want to have a smile that is more vibrant.
Veneers entirely cover the damaged tooth with a long-lasting hard coating that enables it to nearly resemble the color of natural teeth, making them one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Dental veneers are used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth.
