Of course, it’s most important to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy and you are doing the best you can to maintain your teeth for a lifetime. We partner with our patients to get their mouths healthy and to keep them healthy, but once that’s been accomplished, there’s a whole field of dentistry devoted to making people look and feel their best, and that’s Cosmetic Dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is a blend of art, science, and technology that focuses on using a variety of the latest techniques and materials to give our patients the smiles they have always dreamed of.
Cosmetic Dentistry makes it possible for people who hold back smiling (or are too embarrassed to smile because of flaws in the cosmetic appearance of their teeth) to smile- really smile! It’s wonderful to have the tools in our arsenal that can help someone who has always covered their mouth when they smile or laugh, to laugh and smile freely and with confidence. That’s what Cosmetic Dentistry is for.
Cosmetic Dentistry has also proven helpful to business people so that they are more confident when dealing with the public. Also, the fact that someone has an attractive smile has been shown to actually have customers/clients perceive the business person as more competent. I guess confidence goes a long way, and nothing seems to make a person feel more confident than a healthy beautiful smile.
What kind of changes can we make with Cosmetic Dentistry? We can correct spaces between teeth. We can repair broken or chipped teeth. We can handle unsightly, stained or washed-out fillings. We can whiten permanently stained or discolored teeth. We can correct a crooked or poorly shaped smile. We can change the size, shape, position and color of teeth!
