The four most common cosmetic dental procedures for adult men and women, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, are tooth bleaching, bonding, porcelain laminate veneers and orthodontics.

A man is as likely to have a cosmetic dental procedure these days as a woman, says Dr. Jonathan Scharf, spokesperson for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.Male patients accounted for more than 30 percent of the porcelain laminate veneers applied in a six-month period, according to a 1986 survey of more than 1,100 dentists.
