Cosmetic dentistry allows for elective – or desired – treatments and/or services and may also provide healing benefits from oral disease. However, its main focus is on improving the appearance of one’s teeth and smile. Technological advancements in producing natural looking, tooth-colored dental materials not only make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable but also more aesthetically appealing than in years past.
There’s no doubt that a winning smile is an important aspect of social interaction. Your smile is the center of outward expression, so when it dazzles, you exude confidence, happiness and optimism. That confidence can carry over and impact, positively, your personal and professional life as well.
Many options are available to achieve aesthetic enhancements. Using any combination of tooth-colored filling materials, veneers, porcelain crowns, or bleaching, some of the following issues can be addressed:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Whiten discolored or stained teeth
- Repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth
- Re-align crowded or irregular teeth
- Lengthen or shorten uneven teeth
- Replace old metal fillings
