COSMETIC DENTISTRY

If you are putting off cosmetic dentistry that will improve your smile because you think it is an unaffordable luxury, consider this: a confident smile can perk up your health by boosting your immune system, lowering blood pressure, and releasing endorphins. Studies show that people who smile more live longer, make more money, and live a life with far less day-to-day stress.

In addition to helping you look better and feel healthier, cosmetic dentistry procedures can relieve pain from tooth decay, cracks or chips, and sensitivity to hot and cold foods. Your dentist can offer you dental crowns, also known as caps, to cover, preserve, and protect teeth damaged by trauma, decay, or poor cavity repair. Dental bridges are an alternative to implants, replacing missing teeth to close unsightly gaps. Leaving the space empty can lead to shifting of remaining teeth, gum disease, and painful misalignment of the jaw.

The most common reason that patients seek cosmetic dentistry is embarrassment over stained, yellowed, or grayed teeth. Unfortunately, people who suffer from this condition, often through no fault of their own, feel like they must hide it by covering their mouth when they talk or smile. They feel uncomfortable and lose confidence in social activities, because they are ashamed of the appearance of their teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry offers many affordable solutions to improve color and evenness, as well as reduce sensitivity for easier eating. Today’s procedures look completely natural, and the work is virtually undetectable to the average eye.  Replacing silver amalgam fillings with tooth colored fillings, undergoing tooth whitening, bonding, and/or porcelain veneers, can all be excellent ways of restoring your self-esteem, improving your health, and giving you back your confidence.

Many people are fearful of seeing their dentists, sometimes because of previous bad experiences, other times because of the anticipated discomfort. State of the art sedation dentistry techniques take the pain and anxiety out of the process.
