Cosmetic dentistry is still a fairly new branch of the dental world, but it continues to grow more and more popular as time goes on. More people are starting to realize that they can easily improve the overall look of their teeth and smile with relatively easy procedures.
You may not know much about cosmetic dentistry, and you may even be nervous to ask your dentist about cosmetic procedures. Most dentists offer some kind of cosmetic expertise, and our office is no different. We’ve compiled a list of commonly asked questions about cosmetic dentistry so you can get a brief introduction to this incredibly helpful and accessible dental service.
What can I do to improve the look of my teeth?
Most patients we treat are especially concerned about the look of their teeth. This is a common phenomenon, one that plagues most people in today’s world, and for good reason. A healthy smile can lead to a confidence boost in many aspects of your life, including your professional, dating and social circles.
Improving the look of your teeth can be as simple as regularly brushing and flossing, but most people find that they need that extra little push to really shine. Cosmetic dentistry can provide that extra push through a variety of different procedures. The procedure you need depends on the look you want to achieve and the current condition of your teeth.
Are cosmetic procedures invasive?
Many patients are concerned that cosmetic procedures will be too invasive for their liking. While some cosmetic procedures require some level of surgery, most are completely non-invasive and relatively quick and simple. If you’re looking for a simple, non-invasive way to improve the look of your teeth, you might want to consider teeth whitening services. This is the simplest of the cosmetic procedures and doesn’t require any kind of surgery.
Are cosmetic procedures expensive?
In the early days of cosmetic dentistry, things as simple as teeth whitening were incredibly expensive and inaccessible to the general populate. However, those days are now past us. The type of cosmetic dentistry that most people need is inexpensive and most dentists can do it in their offices without any trouble at all.
What is full mouth restoration?
You may have heard about full mouth restoration, which is a comprehensive cosmetic dental solution. There are a lot of misconceptions about full mouth restoration, in that many patients think they should take advantage of it when they really don’t need it. Luckily, dentists won’t make a patient go through the process just because they ask.
Full mouth restoration typically takes place when a patient has lost all or most of their teeth. The process often involves surgery for dental extractions and implants. This is the process of literally rebuilding someone’s mouth so they can lead a normal life again.
