Cosmetic Dentistry is for patients wanting to make a positive change to their smiles while maintaining or improving their oral health, oral function, and appearance of their smile. With modern dental techniques, materials, and a specially trained, skilled dentist, Cosmetic Dentistry not only addresses the aesthetics of a patient’s front teeth but also the function of their back teeth and a patient’s overall oral health. Cosmetic Dentistry relies on the skill of the dentist providing the services which is why it is important to choose a dentist who has had extensive training and education beyond dental school. Dr. Starr (link to bio) is a Surgical and Restorative Dental Implant Specialist, with the skills needed to provide his patients not only with the smile of their dreams but can also address any oral dysfunction.
