5 Reasons to Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

Do you try to smile with your mouth closed when having your picture taken, or attempt to move your mouth as little as possible when you are speaking? Do you often wish that your teeth looked better? Most people have reasons to consider cosmetic dentistry. What they all boil down to is a desire for a more attractive, healthier smile. The following are some of the ways in which cosmetic dentistry procedures can give you just that.

  1. Improve Your Confidence

People with attractive smiles are generally considered by other people to be more attractive overall. So, when you are meeting people in social situations or at work, knowing this can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Cosmetic dentistry procedures that correct the aspects of your smile that you are unhappy with can help you to feel more self-confident.

  1. Get Rid of Stains

If your teeth are stained or otherwise discolored, you could benefit from a teeth whitening treatment. At the end of the treatment, all those unsightly stains will be gone, and your teeth can be brightened by up to eight full shades.

  1. Repair Damaged Teeth

If you have minor chips in your teeth, these are good reasons to consider cosmetic dentistry. Dental bonding can correct minor chipping, and can be done in just one visit. Bonding can also correct pits and grooves. The process involves applying a tooth-colored composite in layers, and then curing and shaping it so that the tooth looks as good as it did before the damage occurred.

  1. Change the Appearance of Your Teeth.

Many people state as one of their main reasons to consider cosmetic dentistry a desire to change the appearance of their teeth completely. Porcelain veneers can do just that. They can conceal a multitude of issues, like chipping, gapping, misalignment and discoloration. They can even change the shape of the tooth.

  1. Better Oral Health

Although not one of the primary reasons to consider cosmetic dentistry, better oral health is often a side effect of cosmetic procedures. Simply stated, once people have cosmetic work done, they usually feel more invested in taking care of their teeth, and are more likely to brush and floss regularly, get regular dental checkups, and have regular professional cleanings.
