When it comes to our appearance, our teeth are often one of the first things people notice. Having a bright, white smile can make us feel more confident in social situations and can help us to make a great first impression. However, over time our teeth can become stained and discolored, marring our otherwise perfect smiles.
Fortunately, there is a branch of dentistry that is dedicated to improving the appearance of our teeth — cosmetic dentistry. This can involve teeth whitening, teeth straightening and changing the shape or color of teeth. If you looking to touch-up your teeth or completely transform your smile, then cosmetic dentistry just might be exactly what you are looking for.
Our dentists and team may recommend cosmetic dentistry if you are looking to correct smile imperfections such as:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Yellow, stained or discolored teeth
- Missing or worn-down teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Pointy, short or long teeth
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
There are many benefits to cosmetic dentistry, including improved self-esteem, increased confidence and a more youthful appearance. Additionally, cosmetic dentistry can also improve oral health by making teeth easier to clean and less likely to develop cavities or other problems.
What should I expect during a cosmetic dentistry procedure?
The specifics of a cosmetic dentistry procedure will vary depending on the specific treatment being performed. However, in general, patients can expect the procedure to be quick and relatively painless.
How long do the results of cosmetic dentistry last?
The results of cosmetic dentistry can vary depending on the specific procedure that was performed. For example, teeth whitening results may only last for a few months, while teeth straightening results can last for several years. However, in general, the results of cosmetic dentistry are long-lasting and can provide patients with significant improvements to their smile.
