, fillings, dental implants
, and veneers, and more! So, if you want whiter teeth, dental veneers, or full a smile makeover, come see the expert cosmetic dentists at Anderson Dental who will not only improve your oral health, but will also give you the dramatic results you're looking to find!
Can Veneers Fix Rotten Teeth?
Depending on the severity of the tooth decay present, veneers can restore rotten or decaying teeth that are situated in the front of the mouth. Our professional staff at Anderson Dental in Lake Worth will assess the condition of your teeth via X-ray, and if the decay is too severe, the tooth may be ineligible for a veneer and require a root canal or even complete removal.

What’s the Difference Between a Dentist and a Cosmetic Dentist?
The major difference between general dentistry
and cosmetic dentisty is that a general dentist’s main responsibility is the prevention and treatment of dental disorders associated with discomfort as well as maintaining overall health of your teeth, whereas a cosmetic dentist is mostly concerned with the overall appearance of your teeth and smile. For example, a general dentist deals with oral issues like tooth sensitivity, and a cosmetic dentist deals with things like tooth color, dental implants, and whitening treatments.
Are Veneers Bad for Your Teeth?
