When people hear the words “dentist”, “dentistry” or “dental appointments”, they usually think of fillings, cleanings, x-rays, filling cavities, and similar activities, most of which are concerned with the health of the mouth and the preservation of the patient’s teeth. These are of course vital activities and are an important part of dentistry. However, there is another part of dentistry which can make a major improvement in the quality of life for a patient: Cosmetic Dentistry.
The word “cosmetic” means “concerned with the improvement of appearance”. “Cosmetic dentistry” then refers to any dental treatment done specifically for the purpose of improving appearance of a patient’s teeth. While our dentist are always interested in a patient’s oral health, in the field of cosmetic dentistry we are also concerned with improving your overall appearance, while also maintaining and improving the health of your teeth.
Chipped teeth, broken teeth, missing teeth, tooth discolorations, visible cavities, and other visible problems or imperfections of the teeth can make a person self-conscious and affect their self-confidence and self-esteem.
Through techniques of modern cosmetic dentistry, teeth can be restored to a bright, even and aesthetic appearance through quick and surprisingly affordable treatments. This results not only in a more attractive appearance and more beautiful smile, but also results in greater confidence in your appearance. You will feel more free to smile. It can also help you to make a more positive first impression on others. And that can bring you greater success in other parts of life, from careers to relationships.
Having a bright, aesthetic smile enhances your appearance and allows you to smile with confidence.
