Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialization focused on improving the appearance of your smile. This type of dentistry combines multiple treatments to strengthen your teeth's health and appearance.
When teeth are chipped, crooked, or discolored, this can lead to embarrassment and a lack of self-confidence. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can address these concerns and help patients achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. At ProCare Dental, we perform cosmetic procedures that include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants. In addition to fixing and protecting smiles, cosmetic dentistry can improve oral health.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Improving the look of your teeth can positively affect your self-esteem and confidence. A beautiful smile can help you feel good about yourself and open doors to new opportunities.
- Many patients who undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures experience less stress, anxiety, or embarrassment about the appearance of their smiles. This can help patients live happier lives overall.
- When you aren’t worried about hiding your smile, you’re more likely to participate in social engagements and events and speak to new people. This can be a massive advantage for career success and personal relationships alike.
- Cosmetic dentistry can also improve oral health by removing tooth decay and enhancing alignment. This can help you avoid problems like cavities, gum disease, and TMJ disorder.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Dental bonding is a popular treatment many of our patients take advantage of. This treatment option can help improve your smile's appearance if you have minor chips or cracks in your teeth. Dental bonding may be your solution if you feel self-conscious about these imperfections!
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth to conceal various imperfections. They are custom-made and bonded to your teeth for a natural look. The dentist removes minimal enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneer. This means that the tooth will be made slightly thinner, but veneers are an excellent option if you want to improve the appearance of teeth without orthodontics or tooth whitening.
Dental implants are one of the most natural-looking and effective tooth replacement options today. A dental implant is a small titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone and allowed to fuse with the bone over several months through osseointegration. Once this process is complete, the dental implant is topped with an artificial tooth that looks and feels like a natural tooth.
