Having a bright and shining smile is a sign of good health. Not only does this usually make people want to smile more, but it is also a great way to leave a lasting first impression on anyone you meet.
The feeling of having an incredible smile is similar to the feeling of being unstoppable. If you are looking to enhance or revamp your smile, cosmetic dentistry is the first step in changing your life.
What is a cosmetic dentist?
A cosmetic dentist uses the latest technologies to improve the appearance of their patients’ smiles. While some dentists focus on basic health, these professionals focus on creating incredible smiles and improving quality of life.
If your teeth are discolored, worn, chipped or broken, then your dentist may recommend cosmetic dentistry.
Common cosmetic dentistry treatments
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most requested cosmetic procedures. There are many variations of teeth whitening techniques, from at-home whitening strips to professional solutions. A cosmetic dentist will remove stains from the enamel through polishing, bleaching and other methods.
Not only does having white teeth improve the appearance of your smile, but it will also likely make you more confident as well.
Dental veneers are another popular cosmetic procedure that improves your smile. Dentists cover the front teeth by placing wafer-thin, custom-made shells to help mask yellowing or stained teeth. Like teeth whitening, this can remove signs of yellowing instantly.
Veneers will last quite long and can withstand daily wear and tear. You can brush them just like you would for your natural teeth.
Having damaged teeth can eliminate your self-confidence. Smiling less can have depressive side effects and can turn someone’s mood from good to bad in seconds.
Dental crowns, or dental caps, can help replace decayed or damaged teeth. Your dentist will create a crown that matches the same shape and color of the damaged tooth.
If you have severely damaged or missing teeth, your dentist may suggest implants. These are artificial teeth that permanently attach to your jaw. These teeth perform as well as natural teeth and will improve your smile and way of life.
Often, people believe they have a gummy smile. This may cause them to hide their teeth out of self-conscious fear. Even if their teeth are completely healthy and white, some people will cover their smiles.
Gum contouring creates an even gum line that highlights your bright smile.
If you have receding gums, then your dentist can reshape your gum line to protect your teeth.
