Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dental care designed to help you fulfill your vision of a smile that is not only healthy and functional, but also attractive. Patients seek out cosmetic dentistry for many reasons because it offers so many options, including:

Tooth replacement

  • Tooth straightening and aligning
  • Tooth brightening and stain removal
  • Broken and chipped tooth repair

With cosmetic dentistry, the team can even give you a full smile makeover.

What products does cosmetic dentistry use?

The practice enhances your smile using several types of cosmetic dentistry products, including:

Dental crowns

Dental crowns, sometimes called dental caps, cover your entire tooth surface. The team can place them on dental implants, or as an element of dentures or dental bridges. Dental crowns restore teeth to their original or their optimal color, shape, and size. 

They can fix the appearance of misshapen, discolored, or broken teeth, and they can also protect teeth made vulnerable by fractured fillings or decay.

The team at Christina P. Mason, DDS, Inc., offers porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are prized for their ability to color-match with your natural teeth. They’re also highly wear-resistant.

Dental bridges 

Dental bridges are artificial teeth that “bridge” the gap between teeth. They’re held cemented to and held in place by neighboring natural or implanted teeth, called abutments. 

As with crowns, your team matches the shape, size, and color of your bridges to the teeth of your natural smile.

Not only can bridges beautify your smile, but they can also improve your chewing ability, improve your speech, and prevent the shifting of your remaining teeth.


Invisalign is a tooth aligner treatment system that addresses the same issues that traditional braces do, including overbite, underbite, open bite, cross bite, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, and gapped teeth. 

Invisalign works using clear, removable aligners that are customized based on digital scans that your team takes in-office using an iTero Element® scanner. The aligners fit tightly over your teeth and subtly move them. You can remove them to eat, drink, and brush and floss. 

Over the course of treatment, you switch out aligners every one to two weeks until they push your teeth into the correct position.

How can I enhance my smile quickly?

To quickly enhance your smile, consider cosmetic fillings and/or teeth whitening procedures.

Cosmetic fillings

To fix teeth with cracks, chips, or damage from decay, Dr. Mason and her team also offer cosmetic fillings. To ensure that your repaired teeth look natural, they only use white fillings, rather than gold or amalgam fillings.


To achieve the radiant smile of your dreams, Christina P. Mason, DDS, Inc. offers both chairside whitening with blue light, as well as take-home whitening trays. 

Any minute that you spend hiding from the world because of your smile is a minute too long. If you’re ready to step into the light, book an appointment for cosmetic dentistry at Christina P. Mason, DDS, Inc. online or over the phone today.
