Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on aesthetic smile enhancements. If you don’t like the way you look when you smile, you can change it with cosmetic dentistry procedures at We Care 4U Dental Center. 

Cosmetic dentistry differs from restorative dentistry in its goals. With restorative dentistry, procedures rebuild damaged areas within your mouth, while cosmetic dentistry emphasizes appearance. But, some procedures accomplish both goals. 

What kind of changes can I make with cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry can make both small and large improvements to your smile, including: 

  • Lightening tooth color
  • Altering tooth size or shape
  • Improving tooth alignment
  • Restoring chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Replacing missing teeth
  • Replacing old silver fillings with tooth-colored ones

If you don’t like the appearance of your smile, Dr. Pagan can recommend a customized smile makeover — a combination of procedures that address multiple concerns at one time. 

What cosmetic dentistry services are available?

We Care 4U Dental Center offers several cosmetic dentistry services, some of which also serve as restorative dentistry procedures. Options include: 

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers cover the “smile teeth” — the incisors and canines you display when you smile. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that conceal the front of the tooth to transform its appearance.


Bonding is a procedure in which Dr. Pagan uses composite resin — the same material she uses for tooth-colored fillings — to restore portions of your tooth. With bonding, you can fill gaps, improve tooth shape, and improve the appearance of your teeth. 

Porcelain inlays and onlays

Porcelain inlays and onlays, also called ceramic fillings, repair areas of decay or damage with custom-made tooth-colored porcelain. 

Porcelain crowns

Porcelain crowns fit onto your prepared tooth, giving you a more attractive appearance while also protecting your vulnerable natural tooth. You may need a crown after a root canal or after serious tooth damage. 

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is the top cosmetic dentistry request at We Care 4U Dental Center. With a take-home custom tray and powerful whitening solution, you can experience significant results in just a few weeks.

Dental implants

Dental implants replace a missing tooth to close gaps in your smile. Titanium replaces your tooth roots and a custom-made porcelain tooth restoration replaces your missing tooth. 

Dr. Pagan can explain these options along with other alternatives to meet your cosmetic dentistry goals.

We Care 4U Dental Center offers the best in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Pagan is an expert in matching the exact color, size, and shape of your natural teeth to give you the best aesthetic results. Book an appointment online or by calling the office.
