A smile is a distinctive feature of any individual's personality and can significantly impact their confidence. When you are content with yourself and your smile, you’ll feel confident about yourself that it reflects in your appearance and smile. But if there is something about your smile that you feel needs to be fixed, you might refrain from smiling, laughing, or chatting with others.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures aim to enhance the look and often the function of the teeth, gums, and overall smile. They repair and restore damaged or missing teeth through cosmetic treatments such as veneers, artificial teeth, or other dental devices. Teeth whitening procedures also come under cosmetic treatments. Cosmetic dentistry is all about getting a flawless smile.

It should be kept in mind that neither at-home nor in-office teeth whitening will provide permanent results. To maintain the results of this procedure, the whitening process must be repeated quite often. The effects of teeth whitening can also be extended by brushing regularly and avoiding smoking, coffee, acids, and other things that stain the teeth.
