Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

At Tracy L. Murphy, DMD & Associates, Dr. Murphy knows that a healthy smile brings more than good health, it gives you confidence. Cosmetic dentistry combines the science of dentistry with artistry to create a healthy, beautiful, and flawless smile.

While general dentistry centers on the health of your teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry provides additional treatment options to improve the way your smile looks and feels.

You don’t have to suffer from missing, chipped, crooked, or discolored teeth, Dr. Murphy and her associates offer cutting-edge techniques and advanced materials to provide a natural and aesthetic smile so you can look and feel your best.

What conditions can cosmetic dentistry treat?

Cosmetic dentistry can correct a variety of teeth conditions, not only giving you a beautiful smile but improve your overall oral health.

Crooked or gummy smiles

You might have a crooked smile if your gum line is uneven, causing some of your teeth to look shorter than others. Too much gum when you smile can cause your teeth to look short.

Exposed tooth roots

Gums can recede for several reasons, but when your tooth root is exposed, it can make your teeth look longer than normal. Gum recession not only negatively affects your smile, it leaves your teeth vulnerable to other dental problems.

Missing teeth

Gaps in your teeth are not only distracting, they can impact your dental health.

What types of dental treatments are cosmetic?

Common cosmetic dental treatments often include:

  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Tooth contouring/reshaping
  • Invisalign tooth straightening
  • Natural, tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain and composite veneers


Dr. Murphyl and her associates also offer tooth whitening and aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers and Botox® for cosmetic dental treatments.

How do I know if I need a smile makeover?

Dr. Beal and his associates want you to love your smile because it’s one of your most important features. You might consider cosmetic dentistry if you:

  • Hesitate when you smile
  • Have dental imperfections you’d like to correct
  • Want to increase your self-confidence and appearance


Cosmetic dentistry can also improve your dental health by enhancing or restoring your smile.
