Cosmetic Dentistry in Burlington, NC
Countless dental surveys have found that Americans place a very high value on the appearance of their teeth. A nice smile tops the list of the most important features to have along with clear skin, bright eyes and beautiful hair. Thanks to innovations in cosmetic dentistry, you can get a perfect smile in just a few appointments at the Burlington, NC dental office of Touloupas & Touloupas Dentistry.
Cosmetic Dentistry v. General Dentistry
General dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease. On the other hand, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the improvement of the appearance of your teeth, mouth and smile. In other words, cosmetic dentistry provides elective, or desired, treatments or services.
Dental professionals have been administering cosmetic procedures for decades, and in ancient times people used shells, stones and animal bones to create makeshift dental restorations. But today, technological advancements in natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than they previously were.
Some of the common concerns that patients seeking cosmetic changes have about their teeth are:
- Staining from smoking, coffee or medication use
- Broken or damaged teeth
- crooked or misshappen teeth
- Chipped or cracked front teeth
Top Cosmetic Treatments
While most patients go to the dentist’s office because there’s an urgent problem, some go specifically for a cosmetic solution. Here are some of the top cosmetic treatments used in dental offices across the country:
- Braces (metal and Invisalign)
- Crowns and veneers
- Porcelain inlays, onlays and tooth colored fillings
- Cosmetic bonding and contouring
- Dental implants
- Professional whitening

Getting Your Perfect Smile
In some cases, your dentist will recommend a combination of cosmetic treatments to help you get your perfect smile. For example, your treatment plan may include Invisalign clear aligners to reposition your teeth and professional whitening to make them look brighter. In some cases your dentist might need to use both veneers and crowns to restore your smile.
