3 Reasons to Invest in Cosmetic Dentistry

3 Reasons to Invest in Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most commonly requested types of dental treatment. Why is this? Cosmetic dentistry is not covered by insurance, so the cost of these procedures is completely out of pocket in most cases. Why are patients investing in cosmetic dentistry? Here are the top 3 reasons. 

1.To Look Younger. 

Cosmetic dentistry can give you a more youthful appearance. Teeth whitening, veneers, gum contouring, and other cosmetic procedures can refresh your smile to help you look younger. Teeth naturally become more yellow and develop gaps as the gums recede, making teeth look long and weathered. Cosmetic improvements can make your smile look years younger and more like it used to be. 

2.To Feel More Confident. 

Making improvements to your smile can give you new confidence you didn’t have before. If you’ve ever been afraid to smile because you feel self-conscious about your teeth, you are an excellent candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Confidence can change your life in positive ways, helping you build personal and professional relationships. Cosmetic dentistry may give you the confidence to pursue a new romance or a job promotion. An investment in cosmetic dentistry is an investment in your future. 

3.To Improve Your Oral Health. 

Many cosmetic procedures also have oral health benefits. Invisalign, dental crowns, dental implants, bridges, and dentures all improve your smile while restoring dental function. Invisalign straightens your teeth and aligns your bite, making it easier to keep your teeth clean and preventing premature wear of the teeth. A dental crown covers a damaged tooth, allowing the natural root to stay in place. Dental implants, bridges, and dentures all replace missing or damaged teeth in a way that looks and functions naturally. 

Cosmetic Procedures 

The following cosmetic procedures are designed to enhance your smile:

  • Teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening treatments are effective and gentle to give you a brighter smile without damaging your teeth. 
  • Veneers. Conceal imperfections in your teeth with veneers, thin porcelain plates that attach to the front side of your visible teeth. 
  • Invisalign. Straighten your teeth and close gaps with Invisalign clear aligners. 
  • Gum contouring. Reshaping gum tissue can provide a more natural looking smile while reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. 
  • Dental prosthetics. Teeth that are missing or too damaged to be saved can be replaced with dental prosthetics to provide a complete and functional smile. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry 

How long does teeth whitening last?

The results of professional teeth whitening treatment can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. You can maintain your results for longer when you do periodic touch ups at home, and avoid typically teeth staining foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark berries. 

Are veneers permanent? 

Veneers are fixed to the teeth so that they can only be removed by your dentist. A special type of adhesive is used to hold them securely to your teeth so you can eat and brush your teeth like you normally would.
