Many patients seek cosmetic dentistry services to improve the appearance of their smile. This can be achieved through teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, composite bonding, dental crowns, dental implants, and orthodontic care. Some patients may simply want whiter teeth or a straighter smile due to misaligned teeth. Through cosmetic dentistry, patients can feel confident in their smile by fixing imperfections such as discoloration, chips, gaps between teeth, and crookedness.
At-home care is crucial to the health of your teeth, but cosmetic treatments can treat problems that aren’t easily treated with brushing and flossing alone.
Here are some of the common types of cosmetic dentistry procedures:
Obvious cosmetic benefits include having a smile that looks and feels better. But there are also other, more functional benefits of cosmetic dentistry as well. Correcting tooth alignment issues can improve your ability to bite and chew food, for example. A cosmetic dentistry treatment can also improve your speech and eliminate any embarrassment you may feel about smiling or laughing in public.
If you’re considering undergoing some cosmetic dentistry treatments, talk to your dentist about which options are best for your goals and budget. They can help you decide on the best course of treatment for you, including whether you’ll need to have multiple appointments to achieve the final results you want.
No matter what type of dental treatment you’re seeking, it’s important to choose a skilled professional who’s experienced with the type of procedure you want. Wondering if cosmetic dentistry is right for you? Talk to a dentist for more information.
