Cosmetic Dentistry

How many times have you found yourself wishing you had a brighter, straighter smile? While you weren’t born with the perfect set of pearly whites, you can take advantage of cosmetic dentistry to fix your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is the area of dentistry that is related to improving the overall aesthetic of a person’s smile. Common cosmetic dentistry procedures include smile makeovers, teeth whitening, composite bonding as well as dental veneers.

Here are 4 benefits of cosmetic dentistry:

#1. Fix Stained Teeth

The most common complaint that patients have is that of yellowish, discolored teeth. Your teeth tend to lose its color as a result of the lifestyle your follow, i.e., regular consumption of liquids that can stain your teeth like coffee, tea, wine or smoking tobacco. A smile professional teeth cleaning and teeth whitening treatment can reverse such effects.

#2. Replace Missing Teeth

Missing or disorderly aligned teeth are another dental condition that many patients come seeking solutions for. Missing/crooked teeth not only impact your overall appearance but also impact your ability to chew and eat properly, which in turn can affect your digestive health. A simple dental implant or a dental bridge (depending on the type of malocclusion) can take care of this problem effectively.

#3. Replace Older Fillings Effectively

In the past, the procedure for dental fillings was very basic. The dentist would first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a metal based filling which would stand out dramatically. With the new and improved cosmetic dentistry procedures which replaced the need for the metal alloy fillings with white acrylic fillings, you can now replace your older fillings with something that looks more natural and significantly change the appearance of your teeth.

#4. Address Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are another serious problem that can be addressed easily with the help of cosmetic dentistry. Crooked teeth not only create difficulties when chewing but also hamper the root integrity of the teeth, thus impacting its longevity. A simple dental veneer can be used to address this problem by way of hiding the gaps or the unevenness/breaks in your teeth!

A beautiful smile plays a very important role, not just towards your dental and overall health but also makes you more confident about yourself! So, go forth and fix that long-standing dental problem before it gets worse. All you need to do is choose the right cosmetic dentist to ensure good results. A simple way to assess your dentist would be by speaking with him/her about the procedure you plan to undergo and see how comfortable you are based on what your dentist suggests and how he/she explains the procedure to you before taking the plunge! , Now, go out there and get yourself the smile you deserve!
