Everyone deserves to walk through life with confidence. What that means for each person will vary, of course, but many people shy away from fully experiencing their lives because they’re self-conscious about their smile.

Cosmetic vs. Restorative Dentistry: What's the Difference?

So when we’re looking at the two different types of dentistry between Cosmetic & Restorative, Cosmetic is typically gonna be more focused on elective things that are changing the appearance of your teeth, typically your smile. So we talk about things like Whitening, a non-invasive way to make your teeth brighter & whiter. We talk about things like Bonding or Veneers, something that goes over the teeth and the smile that can change the look of their straightness, their length, their position, their color; you can really recreate a complete smile by adding something over it. Restorative dentistry is more typically focused on repairing something that has a problem. So a tooth that has a cavity that needs a filling, a tooth that’s broken or worn that needs to have something put over it like a crown. That’s typically what we think of when we say Restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry, with the way we use it to repair larger cases though, can actually still be cosmetic. So when we’re doing a Full Mouth Rehabilitation, not only can we repair what’s broken & worn and recreate the youthful appearance of a healthy smile, we’re still doing Cosmetic Dentistry. So we can repair what is unhealthy or broken and still recreate something that you’ll be absolutely in love with when you look at it in the mirror.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry typically includes elective services with the goal of improving the appearance of your teeth or overall smile, whether that’s making simple adjustments to existing teeth colors or positions, gum line symmetry, or adding something over the existing teeth like veneers.

But cosmetic dentistry is about more than simply having a good-looking smile. Nashville Restorative Dentistry offers a complete array of cosmetic dentistry services designed to restore your health and confidence, allowing you to fully enjoy your life again.

Which Services Does Cosmetic Dentistry Include?

There are a few approaches to cosmetic dentistry, and patients may incorporate two or more of these options to reclaim the smile they want to see in the mirror:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple, safe and non-invasive way to freshen your smile. While there are a variety of do-it-yourself options available today, not all methods are equally effective. Patients are often disappointed in the speed and results of over-the-counter options. There are also complications depending on the type of stains or discoloration present. Put simply, some teeth whiten better than others.

Nashville Restorative Dentistry uses the Kor system to harness the power of oxygen to remove external stains and internal discoloration from your teeth to restore a naturally bright white smile.



If you’re unhappy with misaligned teeth, unsightly gaps, annoying chips, or the shape and length of your teeth, veneers could be the perfect choice for you.

Because veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, this is often one of the least invasive and most painless procedures available for improving your smile.

Nashville Restorative Dentistry is a trained and certified provider of DURAthin and Micro-thin veneers. These provide the ultimate option in veneer artistry while sparing the destruction to your teeth and enamel that traditional veneers require.


Orthodontics (Invisalign)

Create your best smile by repositioning, straightening or closing gaps between your teeth. We proudly offer Invisalign for adult cosmetic orthodontics, which is designed to align your teeth while being nearly invisible compared to traditional metal bracket and wire braces.

Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners worn over your teeth to gently move them into the desired position, changing the trays every 7-14 days to keep your teeth progressing in the right direction.


Gum Contouring

Gum lines are a feature most people don’t think about every day, but they can have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of your smile. Sometimes even small changes to the gum line symmetry can make a huge improvement to your smile. When a tooth appears short in length compared to the teeth around it, gum contouring can be used to expose more of the tooth and restore symmetry to your smile.

There are two approaches to gum contouring: gingivectomy, which removes excess gum tissue and has a quick and predictable recovery time, and crown lengthening, which is performed when bone and gum levels need to be altered to achieve a lasting result.

Patient Testimonial

Issue: Spacing between the front teeth and an uneven tilt to the smile.

Solution: Short term orthodontics to evenly spread out the space between the teeth followed by veneers across the eight front teeth to create a level smile with color consistency and no spaces.
