FAQs About the Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Question: Can improving my smile’s appearance improve oral health?
Answer: In some cases, yes. For example, correcting misalignment can make brushing and flossing your teeth properly much easier, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, if you have a chipped tooth, repairing it also reduces the chances of cavities or possibly infection forming.
Question: Does this impact my confidence?
Answer: For some people, having a brighter and more esthetically pleasing smile can be a source of renewed confidence. If you feel like you have to hide your smile or avoid pictures, then talk to our team. We can pinpoint the factors behind your esthetic issues and recommend cosmetic treatment options. In fact, in some cases we can address multiple problems with a single cosmetic treatment, such as veneers or bonding.
Question: Can you fix stained teeth?
Answer: Yes. If you have stained teeth we can provide deep bleaching. Using trays and gel at home bookended with office treatments, we can often brighten smiles by multiple shades. We can also mask stains with dental bonding or lifelike veneers. We can also provide tips for taking better care of your smile, which can help reduce the severity of future teeth stains.
Question: What if my teeth are damaged or crooked/crowded?
Answer: For damaged teeth we can provide lifelike restorations, such as ceramic crowns or veneers. In fact, we can use the CEREC system to create and place a natural looking crown in one visit. We can also use the Invisalign system’s clear aligners to fix uneven smiles.
