Cosmetic Dentistry: More Than Just Cleaning Teeth

The dentist’s office can bring about mixed feelings and is often portrayed as a scary place. It can feel daunting to schedule your checkup appointment every six months, but it is important to keep your mouth healthy and clean. Many people who are familiar with a standard check-up may be surprised to learn about the additional services they could be utilizing. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry reports virtually all adults (99.7%) agree that having a healthy smile is socially important. Thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry, a perfect smile can be an office visit away. Check out these quicks facts about what cosmetic dentistry can do for you.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening services are what most people think of when they consider tuning up their smile. Also known as bleaching, this process involves holding a gel-filled tray directly on the teeth for a short period of time. The whitening gel removes stains and brightens teeth. Generally, it only takes one application to achieve the desired results. However, an additional application may be necessary depending on the condition your teeth are in.


Bonding is a non-invasive way to repair minor tooth imperfections. This painless process involves using a resin that matches the shade of your teeth to cover defects. If you have ever had a cavity filled, it is likely that you have experienced this service.

Porcelain Veneers

This option is an efficient way to completely transform your smile. The process involves placing a light layer of enamel over your teeth, then cementing the veneers into place. This can be used to instantly change the size, shape, color, and alignment of your teeth.


If you are considering realigning or straitening out your smile, orthodontics may be the best route to take. Your options at Lynnwood Dental include:
