More popular than ever, Cosmetic Dentistry enhances the appearance and function of teeth while complementing the overall health of individuals. Whether changes are subtle or dramatic, the benefits of cosmetic dentistry extend beyond aesthetics. Thus, more and more patients are seeking personalized cosmetic treatments for a number of reasons.
Why Cosmetic Dentistry?
While many assume that cosmetic treatments consist of invasive treatments requiring several appointments, this is not always true. The versatility of cosmetic dentistry allows for simple changes or corrections to be made (stains, misshapen teeth, chips, cracks, jagged gum lines) that make a big difference in a patient’s smile.
Some seek cosmetic dentistry to combat the effects of aging. Two common concerns are discoloration of teeth and tooth erosion. With cosmetic treatments, patients can look years younger.
While most do not need a “perfect smile” to perform their job well, it’s believed that when individuals do not like their smile, this affects their motivation to take on more responsibility and leadership roles. For this reason, many claim that cosmetic dentistry enhances a patient’s smile–as well as their career.
Cosmetic Dentistry – Preventative Dentistry?
Without a doubt–cosmetic dentistry will benefit an individual’s smile, restoring the confidence that they need and deserve. Yet, dental professionals are quick to point out that cosmetic dentistry plays an important role in prevention as well. For instance, procedures such as tooth bonding can “prevent” extensive wear on teeth and decrease the patient’s risk for tooth fracture or even tooth decay.
Cosmetic Dentistry – Worth The Investment?
It’s true–cosmetic dentistry is “elective” dentistry. Yet, patients and dental professionals alike agree that it is worth the investment. If you are unhappy with your smile, or if you are concerned about your oral health, ask your dentist about how cosmetic dentistry can enhance your smile, as well as your oral health.
