COSMETIC DENTISTRY: A branch of dentistry dealing with the appearance of your teeth. It handles the modification of your smile and anything having to do with how your teeth and gums look in terms of the length, shape, color, alignment and proportion. But as a dentist for me, it is obtaining the most beautiful and long-lasting improvement in the appearance of someone’s smile with a minimal amount of treatment. The primary aim of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the aesthetics of a person’s teeth, gums or bite. There are a variety of cosmetic procedures available that are appealing to many people. The most popular procedure is tooth whitening in which teeth are bleached to remove stains and appear brighter. Other cosmetic dental procedures available to help you achieve your perfect smile are:-
A smile makeover typically involves one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening to give you the look you’ve always wanted.
Full mouth reconstruction offers natural-looking and clinically sound treatments to correct functional problems with your bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure.
The first impression is the last impression and everyone is becoming more self-conscious of their teeth when they have chipped, discolored, deformed, crooked or missing teeth. They may feel the need to cover their mouth every time they laugh and tend not to smile with their teeth in photos. Apart from affecting a person's self-confidence, it can also affect a person's oral health, particularly if chipped or missing teeth are left untreated. Good thing is that most of these issues can be resolved and treated or at least worked out to get better than what it was before.
Also, as a dentist, I believe there are always one or more treatment options available for any dental issues at an affordable cost. Depending on the complexity and severity of the problem, referral to dental specialists may be necessary. Ask your dentist or oral health professional for further details. Always remember to get a dental health check-up and oral prophylaxis (scaling) of your teeth every six months to keep your teeth and oral health in good shape and also to check the condition of the treatment already taken.
