Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your smile. With cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Yoo and his team of dental experts correct teeth that are:

  • Misshapen
  • Discolored
  • Chipped
  • Cracked
  • Missing
  • Widely spaced

Whether you want to do something simple, like whiten your teeth, or something more complex, like replacing missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Why should I get cosmetic dentistry?

Your smile is a reflection of your personality and one of the most frequently used tools for communicating with the world. When you don’t feel good about your smile, it can hurt your self-esteem. 

Cosmetic dentistry can turn your smile from a source or shame to a source of pride. When you’re proud of your smile, it improves your confidence. Cosmetic dentistry can have a positive effect on your life, whether you’re repairing an oral defect, treating an injury, or simply upgrading your appearance. 

What cosmetic services do you offer?

Dr. Byung Sun Yoo, DDS, offers a variety of cosmetic services to makeover his patients’ smiles. Some of the more popular procedures include:


Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth and properly aligns your bite with a series of clear plastic aligners.


Bonding makes use of a tooth-colored filling material to treat teeth that are cracked, discolored, or widely spaced.

Cosmetic contouring

With cosmetic contouring, Dr. Yoo removes some of the enamel from a misshapen tooth to make it more aesthetically pleasing.


Crowns are an artificial tooth cap that replaces an unsightly tooth or restore a tooth that’s badly damaged or decayed.


If your smile is missing a tooth, a bridge replaces it with a prosthetic tooth that’s attached to crowns on either side.

Gum lift

If your smile shows an excessive amount of your gums, Dr. Yoo can perform a procedure to minimize and even out your gum line. 


Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently affixed to the front side of your teeth, where they cover up a wide range of cosmetic imperfections, like cracks, chips, or stains.

Dental implants

Dental implants replace missing teeth with a zirconia post that functions like an artificial tooth root, restoring your smile with a solution that’s as comfortable and healthy as it is cosmetically pleasing.

Dr. Yoo also offers sedation dentistry to keep his patients relaxed during procedures. To learn more about how Dr. Yoo can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, schedule a consultation by calling the office or booking online.
