Redefining Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry
How much have you spent on your glasses, or your sunglasses recently? How about that new blouse or dress shirt? What do you give your hairstylist a month? Have you looked at yourself in the mirror and considered updating your smile? Your smile is a huge attribute in defining who you are. Let’s improve it. Simple Cosmetic Dentistry can make that smile of yours one of your most positive features. Smile enhancements can have a dramatic effect on your overall appearance and can improve your self-esteem and boost your confidence. At any age!
Types of cosmetic dentistry
There are several avenues that can be pursued when researching Cosmetic Dentistry. Laser whitening can brighten dull and stained teeth. Orthodontics can straighten crooked teeth and close unfortunate gaps. A missing tooth can be replaced with a bridge or an implant. Old and stained fillings can be replaced with resins and porcelain for a new natural appearance. Grafting can help the reduction of gums. Cosmetic Dentistry can even fix your jaw line! Finally, veneers can be very forgiving in addressing many of the above issues.
The first step in improving your smile is to schedule a consultative visit to evaluate your current oral health and address your areas of improvement and to determine the best route to achieve the best results. Cosmetic Dentistry procedures are an elective and not always covered by your insurance policies. Your dentist will suggest options and share with you payment methods. Remember those glasses? Well, this expenditure is a permanent improvement to your well-being. New technologies in the field are making these self-image efforts far more affordable.
Keep an open mind when discussing veneers. Often veneers can be the final piece of the puzzle in recreating a beautiful smile. Dental veneers are composite or porcelain laminates that are bonded to the surface of your existing teeth and will correct chips and cracks and improve a worn appearance and tooth discoloration. They can also address gaps. Dental insurance may offset some of the costs depending on existing conditions and the oral health benefits that being delivered.
Treatments and Trends
Traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and the prevention of oral disease while Cosmetic Dentistry works with the overall appearance of your teeth, mouth and smile. So traditional dentistry requires necessary treatment where with cosmetic treatment the outcome is more desired. In researching your options make sure that you are comfortable with your initial consultation. Consider reliable referrals. You need to be cognizant of your oral health structurally before you consider cosmetic improvements. Research both the dental practices, the available technologies and the suggested procedures. Your first consultation should be a fact finding mission for both parties; yourself, your smile and the Cosmetic Dental office team.
