Cosmetic Dentistry

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that primarily aims to improve the appearance of teeth. It focuses on different areas of aesthetics including alignment, shape, size and colour.

Through cosmetic dentistry, dentists can help to achieve the smile that you have always wanted.

  • Invisalign

    Invisalign is a clear aligner system designed by Align Technology that has corrected over 11 million smiles. These aligners made with SmartTrack® material are comfortable, invisible and removable, allowing you to go about your daily routine as per normal.

    Corrects: Bite problems, misaligned teeth

  • Braces

    Braces is an orthodontic treatment that corrects a variety of malocclusions. There are 4 types of braces in total, traditional or self-ligating technologies with metal or ceramic materials — each with their own pros and cons.

    Corrects: Bite problems, misaligned teeth

  • Scaling and Polishing

    Scaling and polishing is the process of eliminating stains, tartar and bacteria that regular brushing cannot. It is recommended to do this every 6 months.

    Corrects: Stained teeth or teeth with plaque and calculus

  • Teeth Whitening

    Professional teeth whitening can improve the appearance of your teeth by treating extrinsic, intrinsic and age-related teeth discolouration.

    Corrects: Discoloured teeth

  • Veneers

    Veneers are thin custom-made porcelain or composite pieces that replicate the natural look of your teeth to conceal any imperfections.

    Corrects: Chipped, discoloured teeth or teeth with gaps

  • Teeth Bonding

    Teeth bonding involves shaping a tooth-coloured composite resin material and bonding it to the surface of the tooth to restore imperfections.

    Corrects: Chipped, discoloured teeth or teeth with small gaps

  • Teeth Reshaping

    Teeth reshaping, otherwise known as teeth filing or tooth contouring, removes tooth enamel to modify the shape or length of teeth.

    Corrects: Chipped or irregularly shaped teeth

  • Gum Contouring

    Gum contouring improves the proportion of gum to teeth by changing the shape of your gums to show more or less teeth.

    Corrects: Too much or too little gum showing

Enhances Appearance

With cosmetic dentistry, individuals can correct issues such as misaligned, chipped, cracked, discoloured teeth or teeth with gaps. Additionally, any dental damage due to genetics, illness, infection or trauma can be restored to improve one’s overall appearance.


Boosts Confidence

Having teeth with imperfections can negatively impact a person’s confidence. Restoring your teeth’s appearance with cosmetic dentistry helps to boost self-confidence as you look better, speak better and eat better.


Improves Dental Health

While cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving your appearance, there is also an additional benefit of improving dental health. For example, correcting your teeth misalignment improves your bite while repairing gaps and chips in your teeth improves its overall function.

  • Experienced Team

    i.Dental has a team of dentists and oral hygienists with over 3 decades of experience providing tailored dental services.

  • Conveniently Located Clinics

    We have 4 dental clinics conveniently located near MRT stations — Tanjong Pagar (Capital Tower), Ubi and Yishun (Northpoint City).


Both cosmetic and restorative dentistry can help patients improve overall dental health. However, the main difference between the two is that cosmetic procedures focus more on restoring the appearance of a smile while restorative procedures look into repairing or improving the function of teeth.

In some instances, restorative surgery may be required before cosmetic procedures can be done. For example, wisdom tooth surgery or dental implants may be recommended before orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign or braces commences.
