Would you like to have the brightest, whitest teeth out there? Most of us would answer in the affirmative. The fact of the matter is that our teeth can have an incredible impact upon our appearance as well as our self-confidence, and it is not strange to encounter individuals who would really like to change the way that their teeth look. This is the case even with teeth that are perfectly healthy! You can later the appearance of your teeth even if there is nothing wrong with them. This is known as cosmetic dentistry, and it can be used to help create the smile of your dreams.
Below are some of the cosmetic services that our practice offers.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Much of the dentistry profession focused on keeping your teeth healthy and free from decay and infection. This is an important part of leading a healthy life, in fact, and we believe that it’s something for which everyone should strive. That doesn’t mean that there is nothing else to do apart from clearing out decay and filling cavities, however, or that there’s nothing to be done to your teeth aside from keeping them healthy.
Cosmetic dentistry is a form of dentistry that ensures that the appearance of your teeth is exactly what you’d like to see. Many of us can find something with our teeth. Whether you think that the color is too dull, the spaces between your teeth are too big, or the shapes of your teeth are simply a bit “off”, there is a cosmetic dental procedure that can be completed in order to correct the issue.
Cosmetic dentistry is kind of like cosmetic surgery, but for your teeth! If you have the time and the patience, you can create your idea of the perfect smile. We can help you get there.
Do I have to treat all of my teeth?
One of the misconceptions about cosmetic dentistry is that you either have to treat all of your teeth, or none of them at all. This is perhaps because many patients think that in order to create the appearance of uniform teeth, every tooth must be altered in the same way. The fact of the matter is that sometimes, only a few teeth really need to be changed to achieve the look you want to have. While we can certainly look at treating multiple teeth, keep in mind that if there is just one tooth that is really catching your attention in a negative way, we can always work on fixing just that particular issue.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
There are certain procedures that can be rather expensive. If you decided to have porcelain veneers placed over all of your teeth, for example, the cost would probably add up relatively quickly. With that said, however, there are also options that can create a beautiful smile without the high cost that is associated with certain complex procedures. Cosmetic bonding, for example, can help perfect your smile for an incredibly affordable price.
