Visit a Cosmetic Dentist for the Health of Your Gums

Cosmetic DentistFor a cosmetic dentist, how your teeth look is equally as important as how well they function. Cosmetic dentistry as a whole is largely focused on the aesthetics of the mouth, and so we have honed our skills to ensure that you have the brightest, whitest smile possible. Our techniques allow for straighter teeth that build confident, radiant smiles. At the same time, there is a significant amount of cross treatment. Replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant, for example, helps with the overall health of the jawbone. However, most people simply associate us with the techniques that have become our everyday staple. These include teeth whitening, replacement of lost enamel with dental crowns or ceramic veneers, replacing lost teeth with dentures, bridges, and dental implants, and straightening your teeth using braces or Invisalign®.

Apart from the techniques that we use on a daily basis there are a number of other, less well known, procedures that also help to improve a persons' appearance. What we have found is quite a few of the procedures that are done for medical and dental health reasons also have aesthetic implications.

If you are someone that has not considered the benefits of visiting a cosmetic dentist, it is important to understand that we do perform the dental work required to keep your teeth in good health.  However, we do so in a way that improves the appearance of your teeth at the same time.  It is not necessary to only treat the health of your teeth or to only deal with their appearance.  When you visit our dental office, you can receive the benefits of both in one treatment. For example, one of the ways we can keep you healthy is by performing restorations.  If your tooth becomes even slightly cracked, it is likely to become infected, creating discomfort for you and leading to the potential need for a root canal.  By restoring the tooth using a solution like bonding, veneers or crowns, we can protect your tooth while improving its appearance.  When you visit our office, you can be confident that once the restoration has been completed, it will look so natural that you will not be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and the newly improved ones.

A perfect example of how a cosmetic dentist can improve your appearance and your health is the dental crown.  We can place dental crowns around your tooth or teeth to protect them.  If you have suffered from enamel erosion, this procedure can make it possible to eat without feeling sensitivity.  Simultaneously, a dental crown can be used to close gaps in between teeth, cover dark stains, and make changes to their overall shape and size.  This one solution can be used to help you feel healthier, protect your teeth, and to improve the way that they look.  All of this is possible when you visit our cosmetic dentist office.  The crowns we create will be made using a tooth-colored material so that they blend in and improve the way that you look, instead of standing out.  If you think that your tooth is infected, or you are suffering from sensitivity, we encourage you to visit our dental office and discuss what you do not like about your appearance at the same time so that we can address both issues.
