What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
If you are familiar with the term “cosmetic surgery”, then you are familiar with the idea behind cosmetic dentistry. This is an area of dentistry that is concerned with aesthetics rather than solely focusing on the health of the teeth in question. That does not mean that a cosmetic dentist doesn’t want to make sure your teeth are healthy, of course, but rather that they have plenty of experience in giving patients beautiful as well as healthy smiles.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are not strictly necessary for the health of a patient’s teeth; however, they might be very necessary to help maintain a natural looking smile. And sometimes, even the healthiest of teeth could use a little help when it comes to their appearance. With this in mind, consider cosmetic dentistry for all of your smile shaping needs.
Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished that your teeth were a little bit more aesthetically pleasing? Many of our patients have, and they are looking into different options available to give them the healthy, bright smile of their dreams.
Porcelain veneers, for example, is one form of cosmetic dentistry that is incredibly popular among patients today. Porcelain veneers can help you with your smile, including giving you teeth that are uniform in size, shape, and color. There are, of course, other options in cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening is always a patient favorite, as is cosmetic bonding.
Do I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
The answer to the above question largely depends on how you feel about your current teeth. If you have discolored teeth or misshapen teeth, for example, you might find yourself self-conscious about your smile.
At Van Alstine Family Dentistry, we believe that you should be able to smile with confidence, and that is what our cosmetic dental procedures are designed to do. They are meant to create a smile that you are proud of, not one that makes you want to hide your face. If you are already happy with the appearance of your teeth, then you do not need cosmetic dentistry. If you are one of the many patients who are not happy with their smile, however, then you might greatly benefit from some of our cosmetic procedures.
