When asked what services their dental practice offers, the dentists who responded with cosmetic dentistry were the clear majority in this survey.
More aging baby boomers are turning to cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of their teeth, which may explain the increase in demand for cosmetic dentistry services.
Dental implants are the most popular dental treatment among this demographic for the replacement of damaged or missing teeth.
A California dentist shared, “More than half of our practice is dental implants now!”
Here at The Wealthy Dentist, we were curious what services dentists are currently offering. The top services offered by dentists who responded to this survey are cosmetic, tooth whitening, dental implants, dentures, and children’s dentistry.
Here’s a breakdown of the services dentists are offering —
- 86% Cosmetic Dentistry
- 77% Tooth Whitening
- 75% Dental Implant Crowns
- 75% Dentures
- 72% Dental Implants

Dentists were disappointed that other services were not included in this survey, like Botox, oral cancer screenings, or offering custom mouthguards for patient athletes.
One prosthodontist noted, “Oral cancer screening and testing was not on the survey list. Also, it would be interesting to know how many offices provide Botox.”
A general dentist responded that he now offers same day service for CEREC restorations as part of his dental practice services.
Another dentist answered tongue-in-cheek, “I don’t offer gum disease, I treat it.”
