Could Cosmetic Dentistry Affect My Dental Health
Are you thinking of changing something about your smile? If so, you are probably more concerned with aesthetics than with oral health benefits, and that’s understandable. Wanting to look your best has nothing to do with vanity; your smile is a valuable asset that can affect the way you see yourself and the way others see you.
But cosmetic dentistry is no longer limited to services like porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. Thanks to advances in dental technology and materials, just about any treatment we perform can result in a more attractive smile.
Here are just a few of the restorative services we offer that benefit both your oral health and your beautiful smile:
Yes, even a procedure as essential as a filling improves your smile! Our tooth-colored composite material that closely mimics the appearance of natural enamel so the filling doesn't just protect your tooth, it also enhances its appearance.
Esthetic Dental Crowns
We use all-porcelain or ceramic crowns to protect a tooth that has been weakened by damage or by root canal treatment. The result is a restoration that blends seamlessly with your smile.
The loss of a tooth is a much larger problem than a noticeable gap in your smile. If we don’t replace a lost tooth, you will experience gum recession, deterioration of bone in your jaw, and potential tooth misalignment. A dental implant is the only type of replacement that can resolve all these problems and leave you with a beautiful, complete smile.
