Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

If you suffer from chipped, cracked, severely damaged, or decayed teeth, a cosmetic dentist can help restore your smile through a wide range of cosmetic procedures, including:

Teeth whitening

The most common type of cosmetic dental treatment, in-office teeth whitening can help remove stains and discoloration that have built up on your teeth over time. The teeth whitening process is quick, safe, and effective, allowing you to walk out of Virginia Dental Group with a bright, radiant smile in just one simple visit.


Made out of wafer-thin porcelain or composite shell, dental veneers fit over your natural teeth and adjust to their exact shape to dramatically reshape and improve your smile. Patients who opt for veneers often suffer from severe tooth discoloration, chipped teeth, or tooth gaps.

Dental bonding

Like veneers, dental bonding is recommended for patients who want to correct tooth discoloration, cracked teeth, tooth gaps, and more. Unlike veneers, bonding does require your dentist to remove much of your natural tooth to make room for the bonding material, but it doesn’t last as long as veneers.


A gingivectomy is the surgical removal of gum tissue and is often recommended to patients whose gums have begun to separate from their teeth. The procedure is designed to remove any pockets that may have developed between your teeth and gums, due to gum disease, but is typically only an option if the condition has yet to damage the bone supporting your teeth.

Pre-cosmetic ortho

The team at Virginia Dental Group can correct your misaligned or crooked teeth with orthodontic options such as traditional braces, Invisalign® invisible aligners, or ClearCorrect™ clear aligners.

Virginia Dental Group will soon offer Botox® and cosmetic fillers to improve the look of your smile.
