What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that enhances the appearance of a person’s smile: their teeth, gums, or bite. By improving aesthetics such as color, position, shape, size, and/or alignment, a person’s entire appearance can benefit. Procedures range from minor corrections to a complete smile makeover.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
When patients undergo cosmetic dentistry to correct aesthetic flaws and improve their overall appearance, this can affect many areas of their life, in particular:
- Help you appear younger
- Boost your self-confidence
- Enhance your career
- Prevent future dental damage
There is a plethora of procedures employed by our office to help improve the appearance of your smile. Two of our most common procedures are porcelain veneers and dental bridges.
When teeth become chipped or broken, porcelain veneers provide an aesthetic solution. Veneers are tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front of teeth to improve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Veneers are also important to help protect the tooth from future damage and decay.
Many dental patients experience cosmetic issues due to missing teeth. This is a common occurrence. The American Dental Association reports that average adults between 20 and 64 years old have three decayed or missing teeth. When you are missing one or more teeth, dental bridges are often a great solution, with artificial teeth bonded to the surrounding teeth like a “bridge” to fill the gap. The dental bridge helps not only the appearance of your smile, but also helps ensure proper tooth alignment.
In addition to these most common procedures, we offer a host of other procedures, including teeth whitening and orthodontic work, that can help improve your smile.
Our team at River Valley Smiles is here to help you ensure you can show off those pearly whites with confidence. Schedule an appointment today to consult with our team of professionals and discuss your cosmetic dental concerns.
