We'd like to take a moment to consider what cosmetic dentistry is and how it can benefit patients. You may be surprised to learn about some of the personal and career benefits associated with cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentistry Defined

Cosmetic dentistry refers to various kinds of procedures that are designed to enhance the appearance of the teeth and gums. These procedures are able to treat a number of different problems, including chips, cracks, stains, and gaps.

In other words, cosmetic dentistry is the way you can have a beautiful smile that you can feel confident about.

Improving the Whiteness of Your Smile

One of the key benefits of cosmetic dentistry is that it can improve the whiteness and brightness of your smile. When your teeth are stained or discolored, it can make your smile seem tarnished and can be the source of embarrassment. Thanks to teeth whitening treatment, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers, your smile can look its brightest and whitest.

Closing Gaps and Improving Smile Symmetry

Small gaps between teeth or larger gaps left by missing teeth can have a negative overall affect on your smile. Sometimes orthodontic care isn't necessary to close these gaps. The use of porcelain veneers and custom dental appliances can close these gaps and bring out the best in your smile.

Masking Chips, Cracks, and Damage

Chips, cracks, and other kinds of tooth damage can leave your smile looking less than stellar. There are numerous cosmetic dentistry options available to help repair tooth damage and improve the overall appearance of your teeth. This includes dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and a wide array of tooth-colored dental restorations (e.g., fillings, inlays, onlays, porcelain crowns).

Improving Your Confidence and Self-Esteem

By enhancing your smile, cosmetic dentistry can go a long way to improving your overall self-image and self-esteem. This means you may not feel self-consciousness about smiling, speaking, and laughing around others, which can make a major difference with overall feelings of self-worth.

Offering a Potential Edge in Your Career

If you're in a career that involves lots of interactions with others or the need to be a public face for a company, you'll find cosmetic dentistry quite helpful for your career. This can give you an edge in terms of interviewing and promotions, and it may set you ahead of the pack when it comes to actual on-the-job duties.

Customized Care for Every Patient

There is never a one-size-fits-all approach to cosmetic dentistry. All procedures are carefully customized to the needs of the patient, which ensures optimal care and a specific focus on how to best enhance each smile. During the consultation, a full smile makeover treatment plan can be discussed, allowing you to understand the unique and personal benefits specific to your smile.
