Perfect Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Apr 26, 2017

A flawless smile has the power to make a person feel invincible, or at least a lot more attractive! If your teeth are discolored, crooked, missing, or unsightly in some other way, you probably don’t feel great about how you look, and confidence may be lacking. Cosmetic dentistry can help restore your smile and bring back that important self-esteem.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t currently recognized as a specialty by the American Dental Association. Your family dentist may be able to improve your smile if your practitioner is a cosmetic dentist with some advanced training. However, it is more likely, depending on your dental condition, you may need to seek treatment from a specialist such as an orthodontist for teeth straightening or to address bite issues, or a periodontist to help restore your oral health or reshape your gums.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Cosmetic dentistry options include reshaping of the tooth to enhance the appearance, shape, color or length. This type of cosmetic dentistry may be done using one or more of the following procedures: teeth whitening, replacing fillings or crowns, adding tooth-colored veneers, crowns, bridges or fixed crowns, implants or dentures. You may have already experienced cosmetic dentistry and just didn’t know. If you have ever had a crown placed or a tooth-colored filling put in to replace an old metal filling, that is cosmetic dentistry.

The best thing that cosmetic dentistry options offer is the way they make patients feel after the procedure is completed. A renewed sparkling smile can make a person smile more because they feel more optimistic about the way they look, and ultimately their outlook on life is enhanced. The emotional and psychological transformation can be amazing! If you’re interested in perfecting your smile with cosmetic dentistry, book an appointment with our office today!
