Many patients do not enjoy seeing the dentist because they are worried about their treatment results or procedures. However, this does not have to be the case if you can visit your dentist for cosmetic dental treatments. At Smiles by Design, our dentist can help you improve your smile without undergoing complex treatments or procedures and without requiring you to feel pain or discomfort. For example, your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers to correct tooth discoloration, misaligned teeth, or gaps between your teeth. These thin shells of dental-grade ceramic are bonded to the front of your teeth to provide a lasting and beautiful result that protects your teeth from further damage due to decay or wear. To complete your smile makeover, the dentist may suggest teeth whitening to remove stains on the enamel’s surface before applying the veneers. Some patients have their natural teeth whitened before receiving their new restorations for a uniform and bright smile.
When you suffer from stained teeth, it can be a massive blow to your confidence and self-esteem. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry offers a range of solutions to brighten your smile. The most popular method is professional teeth whitening. This procedure uses prescription-strength whitening gel to remove stains from your teeth in as little as one visit.
Dental crowns are caps that cover a tooth damaged due to trauma or a cavity. Crowns can also replace a missing tooth with a lifelike implant. Modern crowns are strong, durable, and custom-made to fit your smile for optimal aesthetics.
Tooth bonding is a minimally invasive procedure in which composite resin is painted directly onto the surface of a damaged or discolored tooth to repair it. Bonding can fix chips, cracks, and minor, aesthetic flaws like discoloration and stains.
There are many reasons to consider cosmetic dentistry. These treatments can help you feel more confident in your smile and boost your confidence in other ways. If you think about all of the parts of your mouth, it’s easy to see how a person’s smile can say a lot about their overall health. Teeth and gums play a significant role in digestion, speech, and appearance. If a patient has crooked teeth or yellow stains on their teeth, it can impact how they feel about their smile and their overall confidence. For example, when you don’t feel confident in your smile and appearance, you might avoid making eye contact with others and talking in public. This can harm your career because you won’t network or land that next big job. But thanks to some cosmetic dental treatments, you can boost your oral health and confidence simultaneously.
