5 Ways a Cosmetic Dentist Can Help Improve Your Smile
Posted on October 12, 2018
Having confidence starts with a great smile for many people in San Francisco. Straight, white teeth can make a smile look attractive and provide a major boost to anyone’s self-esteem. The good news is no matter what a person’s current dental health is, a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Skoulas can help improve any smile and help each patient achieve their dental goals. Here are five of the most common ways a cosmetic dentist can enhance the natural glow of a smile.
One of the most common treatments administered by a cosmetic dentist is teeth whitening. While there are plenty of DIY kits available to whiten the teeth, many of them are ineffective and can cause more harm than good in some cases. Nothing compares to the teeth whitening treatment provided by a reputable cosmetic dentist like Dr. Skoulas and patients in San Francisco can see an immediate improvement in their smile when they walk out of the office.
Dr. Skoulas uses porcelain veneers to help San Francisco patients straighten, brighten or fix damaged teeth. The porcelain material can be matched to the other teeth in the mouth so that they look natural. This is a great option to consider for patients needing minor work done to improve the appearance of their teeth.
Invisalign is designed to help patients straighten their teeth gradually without having to get veneers or go through the unsightliness of traditional braces. A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Skoulas can help determine whether Invisalign is right for any given patient, but it is quickly becoming a preferred solution for most people.
Bridges and Crowns
Installing bridges and crowns are specialties of a cosmetic dentist. These are needed when a patient has a significant dental problem, like a missing tooth, fractured tooth or a bad cavity. A crown is used when a single tooth needs to be replaced, while a bridge is used to replace multiple teeth. In either scenario, a good cosmetic dentist can make the replacement teeth look virtually identical to the other teeth for a natural appearance.
Dental fillings can help relieve the discomfort patients feel in their teeth. Any amount of discomfort can lead to not smiling naturally, so Dr. Skoulas will work to restore and improve the smile as quickly and effectively as possible. While fillings are common in dentistry, they aren’t created equally. Working with a reputable cosmetic dentist will yield the best results that will last for years to come.
