So, you’ve gone to the dentist all your life and have had countless cleanings and visits over the years. However, you may have heard of the term “cosmetic dentist” and wondered what made them different from your dentist at home – and what they can do for you.
A ‘cosmetic dentist‘ is truthfully nothing more than a term given to dentists that specialize in procedures which are less about dental emergencies or damage and more about the appearance and look of your smile.
Still, why work with a cosmetic dentist on these projects, and what are they capable of repairing or doing for you and your smile? This is what we hope to answer below with these three reasons to work with a cosmetic dentist today.
To Whiten Your Teeth
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures done by a cosmetic dentist is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can lead to whiter teeth by up to 5 to 7 shades in only one hour and is a relatively cheap option to improve the look of your smile rapidly.
With food, drink, tobacco, trauma, and age all affecting the color of your teeth, it’s essential to pay attention to your teeth and ask your dentist if this procedure is right for you.
To Improve the Appearance of Your Teeth
Although teeth whitening does improve the appearance of your teeth as well, in many cases, whitening isn’t enough. Perhaps, you have a chipped tooth, or your teeth have gaps between them. This is where a veneer comes into play. A porcelain veneer provides its users with teeth any shape, size, color, or look possible simply by attaching better looking fake teeth to the exterior of your real teeth.
To Replace Missing or Damaged Teeth
The last thing that you may get done when going to a cosmetic dentist is a bridge, grown, or dental implant. These procedures all can be used to replace missing or damaged teeth and provide you with a much better and more refined smile.
In the end, a cosmetic dentist is the perfect solution for those looking to refine the appearance of their smile. If you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, feel free to contact us today, and we will gladly walk you through the process of cosmetic dental work today.
