Every Dentist is a Cosmetic Dentist

The fact is that “Cosmetic Dentistry” is not among the list of dental specialties or categories recognized by the American Dental Association. As a result, any dentist can describe him or herself as a “cosmetic dentist,” since the phrase has no professionally-defined characteristics.

While there are many pros and cons to this lack of ADA recognition, it is important for patients to be aware of this fact: there is no certification board vouching for the quality of the cosmetic dentistry practiced by any dentist.

The reality is that most dental procedures have an effect on your aesthetics. Cosmetic appearance is as important an aspect of dentistry as oral health, longevity of dental restorations or their functionality.

All procedures performed by Dr. Mironov adhere to strict cosmetic criteria:

— Our composite fillings will blend in with the shade of your tooth perfectly.

— The size and shape of a porcelain crown will seamlessly merge with the adjacent teeth whether it is a front tooth or a molar.

— Even when making dentures, we take into consideration the contour and anatomy of the teeth being replaced along with the shade of the remaining dentition to match.


If it is important that no one notices your recent dental work, Dr. Mironov will go out of his way to make it happen. However, if your goal is to drastically improve the appearance of your smile, there are elective dental procedures we provide whose purpose is purely cosmetic, such as veneers, teeth whitening and some orthodontics. If you want everyone to notice and complement your new bright smile, we will deliver!
