Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has many advantages to offer. This is why it is so popular. Smile makeovers are so accessible nowadays that almost anyone can improve their smile somehow through cosmetic dentistry. You do not have to be born with perfect teeth anymore. A cosmetic dentist can create the smile that you want but nature did not give you.

Before we go into the list of just some of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry it is important to point out that not everyone is a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Those who do not take proper care of their teeth and whose oral care is lacking may not be healthy enough to successfully accept certain procedures. In other words you have to have a certain amount of healthy tissue to work with. Dentists are not going to compromise the function or health of your mouth for a cosmetic procedure.

If, on the other hand, you are in relatively good oral health and you are willing to do what it takes to maintain a healthy mouth, here are just a few cosmetic dentistry benefits that await you :

Cosmetic dentistry is fast. In many cases you can be given a completely different smile in one to two office visits! In the case of most dentists’s office teeth bleaching or whitening procedures results can be seen in a matter of minutes! At-home treatments for whitening work alright, but you can only find the efficiency of one-use results in your dentist’s office. Another example of speedy results in cosmetic dentistry involves teeth straightening. Teeth straightening can take a long time to see results. Braces are painful, inconvenient, and largely considered unattractive. But since porcelain veneers became popular, you have the choice of never having to wear braces again. Veneers can be molded to fit almost any shape. A cosmetic dentist can shave away portions of your teeth that are ill-aligned and can fit you for a set of veneers that can straighten your teeth in just a few office visits, versus the months or even years it may take for traditional orthodontia.

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are permanently bonded onto the front side of teeth and can make a vast improvement on the tooth’s appearance. Porcelain veneers are often used by dentists to correct teeth that are yellowed or discolored, worn, chipped, or crooked.

Veneers take on the appearance of a tooth, so they don’t look fake. In addition, they are resistant to staining. Most often, veneers are used for minor imperfections on the teeth and in some cases can be used in place of braces. Severe cases of misaligned or missing teeth are not candidates for veneers.

Veneers are very beneficial in that the color is permanent. People who opt for veneers will have the benefit of a whiter smile that doesn't fade, as well as an improved look.

A crown is much like a veneer in that it can greatly enhance the appearance of the tooth. However, unlike a veneer, a crown doesn't’t just cover the front of the tooth. Instead, it wraps around the entire tooth itself.

People who opt for crowns experience not only the cosmetic benefits of a whiter smile and straighter, prettier teeth, but crowns can have benefits that are more than cosmetic. Crowns help to protect the underlying tooth and act as a shield. Many dentists who perform root canals on patients will opt to give the patient a crown, as it is strong and will protect the underlying structures.

Invisible braces
If you never got braces as a child but feel like you might need them now, you may be a candidate for invisible braces. People with crowded teeth, gaps in the teeth, or with a severe overbite and under bite may be able to have that corrected with invisible braces. This type of cosmetic dentistry uses clear aligners to move your teeth back into place. Invisible braces, unlike real braces, can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating.

Many adults and teenagers prefer them so the appearance of braces isn’t so obvious. Not only do invisible braces straighten teeth, resulting in a higher self esteem, but they do so in a way that most people won’t be self-conscious of.

Tooth whitening
For many people, the effects of aging, coffee, or other factors have taken a toll on the shade of their teeth. In a world where white teeth abound, many people feel self-conscious if their smile isn’t as bright as it could be.
