The cosmetic dentist and his/her patients are often misunderstood. Some people think it’s only for the rich and famous. Some view the treatment as expensive and unnecessary, while others don’t know what to make of it at all.
In fact, cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term that covers a lot of ground. In general, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the soft tissue in your mouth, your gums, connective tissue, blood vessels, fat, muscles, and the lining of your lips and cheeks. The field is dedicated to correcting imperfections as related to this tissue.
