Sometimes, through no fault of the particular person, his or her teeth may be strong and healthy, yet not necessarily straight, well-shaped, or as white and bright as the person would ideally like. At best this less-than-sparkling smile may serve as a mild annoyance to the person. At worst it could create a significant psychological obstacle for healthy self esteem. Fortunately, whether the distress is minor or severe there is a solution: cosmetic dentistry.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a general, encompassing term that refers to any dental procedure designed to improve the appearance of teeth, gums, or bite. There are many examples of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures:
- Teeth Whitening
- Tooth Reshaping and Contouring
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Just because the benefits of cosmetic dentistry are by definition related to appearance rather than oral health or function, that does not make these benefits any less real or important to the patients who have the procedures done. The benefits are both internal, for example boosting self esteem and making patients feel better, as well as external, for example helping patients get ahead in their personal or professional lives. For these reasons cosmetic dental services have rapidly grown in popularity. Some of the many benefits of cosmetic dentistry include the following.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry:
- A brighter, more vibrant smile
- Increased confidence
- Greater perceived attractiveness
- More life opportunities
