According to research, there are very few people who are 100% satisfied with the appearance of their smile. Most people, if given the chance, would change at least one thing, usually more.

The good news is that most dental clinics offer cosmetic dentistry, which offers that opportunity.Smile Boutique Group in California offers a variety of cosmetic dental procedures designed to improve the appearance of your smile. In this article, we’ll explain some of these procedures, as well as the benefits of cosmetic dental procedures.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that improves the appearance, rather than the function, of teeth, gums, and/or bites. It primarily focuses on enhancing dental aesthetics in terms of color, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall smile appearance.

Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry focused on improving the appearance of a patient’s smile.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures at Smile Boutique Group

We offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures at Smile Boutique Group, including:

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is the process of using a variety of procedures to create a picture-perfect smile. These procedures include dental veneers, teeth whitening, crown lengthening, orthodontics such as Invisalign, crowns and bridges, and dental implants.

Crowns & Bridges

Traditional crowns and bridges take several weeks from start to finish. However, CEREC crowns and bridges can be done in one day. This technology involves taking digital impressions, inputting them into computer software to design a crown/bridge, and then sending the design to a milling machine that will fabricate the restoration. This usually takes a few hours.

Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Periodontal plastic surgical procedures are designed to resolve a “gummy” smile through both traditional and laser crown lengthening. This procedure creates symmetry between your teeth and gums.


Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces designed to resolve dental malocclusions including underbite, overbite, crossbite, and more. This treatment involves a series of clear aligners designed to shift teeth into their appropriate position in the jaw.

Veneers & Lumineers

Two of the most transformative cosmetic procedures offered at Smile Boutique Group are dental veneers and Lumineers®. These procedures allow you to improve the appearance of your smile with just 1 to 2 appointments! These procedures disguise imperfections such as wear/tear, chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and more.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening at Smile Boutique Group can lighten your teeth by up to 8 shades in as little as 1 hour. We use teeth whitening products from ZOOM! which are safe and effective.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry offers several benefits, including:

Improves smile

If you’re like most people, there’s something about your smile that you’d like to improve, and cosmetic procedures can do just that. These procedures can address concerns about appearance and help you look and feel your best.

Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry​

Improves oral health

When your teeth are crooked or irregularly shaped, properly cleaning them can be a challenge. Cosmetic dental procedures can resolve these issues, reducing your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and more.

Boosts confidence

If you’re self-conscious about your smile, you may struggle to feel capable and self-confident. You may avoid smiling or laughing- and may even avoid interacting with others as much as possible. However, cosmetic procedures can resolve these issues so that you feel better about yourself.

Immediate, long-lasting results

The results from cosmetic procedures are often immediate and long-lasting. Many of them last a decade or more with proper care and maintenance.

Provide a brighter, whiter smile

Cosmetic treatments including dental veneers and teeth whitening provide patients with a brighter, whiter smile- which creates a more youthful appearance.

Improves bite

Misaligned teeth create a poor bite, which can lead to issues including uneven tooth wear, headaches, aches/stiffness in the jaw, and so much more. Cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign resolve these misalignments, which improve bite.

Resolves stains

White teeth are ideal, but most people have stains that have accumulated over the years for a variety of reasons. Treatments such as teeth whitening and dental veneers can remove or disguise these stains.

Improves Tooth Shape​

Improves tooth shape

Research shows that most people consider longer, slightly rounded teeth to be the most attractive. If your teeth do not fit into this description, cosmetic dental procedures can reshape your teeth, creating a more desirable smile.

Treats chipped teeth

A chip in a tooth not only changes the shape and appearance but also increases the risk of future damage/decay. Cosmetic procedures fill in the chips, restoring the natural shape and making it appear as if the damage never happened. If the chip is severe, a porcelain inlay, onlay, or crown may be recommended.

Replaces missing teeth

A missing tooth is a serious dental issue because it not only alters your appearance but also your ability to chew and speak properly, as well as smile. Cosmetic procedures such as a dental implant or dental bridge can effectively replace a missing tooth.
