Countless dental surveys have found that Americans place a very high value on the appearance of their teeth.

Thanks to innovations in cosmetic dentistry, you can get a perfect smile in just a few appointments at Kuhn Family Dentistry in Reno.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry
Any treatment that is performed to improve the look of your teeth falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. Dental professionals have been administering cosmetic procedures for decades, and in ancient times people used shells, stones and animal bones to create makeshift dental restorations. Today, cosmetic dentistry is a $2.75 billion industry.
Top Cosmetic Treatments
Though patients most often go to the dentist’s office because there’s an urgent problem, some go specifically for a cosmetic solution. Here are some of the top cosmetic treatments used in dental offices across the country:
- Braces (metal and Invisalign)
- Crowns and veneers
- Porcelain inlays, onlays and tooth colored fillings
- Cosmetic bonding and contouring
- Dental implants
- Professional whitening
- Therapy for a “gummy smile,” which is a disproportionate amount of gum tissue and too-small teeth.
You can request these treatments and more at the Kuhn Family Dentistry in Reno, NV.
Getting Your Perfect Smile
In some cases, your dentist will recommend a combination of cosmetic treatments to help you get your perfect smile. For example, your treatment plan may include Invisalign clear aligners to reposition your teeth and professional whitening to make them look brighter. In some cases your dentist might need to use both veneers and crowns to recreate your smile.
