Cosmetic Dentistry Expectations

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure Examples

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services that people get is teeth whitening. The reason this procedure is so popular is because it is non-invasive, it is quick, and it is an easy way to brighten your smile almost immediately. Teeth whitening can help individuals who are struggling with missing, damaged, or discolored teeth by restoring their natural, beautiful smile.

There are several other reasons why teeth whitening may be needed. Some patients experience discoloration caused by the medications they are taking. Patients suffering from fluorosis also commonly pursue this cosmetic dentistry option.

Depending on your particular needs, there are several other cosmetic dentistry restoration options available, including the following:

  • Dental Bonding
  • Dental Implants
  • Lumineers
  • Porcelain Crowns
  • Reshaping and contouring
  • Veneers

Choosing a Procedure

There are many different factors to keep in mind when you are considering whether cosmetic dentistry is the right option for you. One of the most important things to remember is that not every procedure is appropriate for every patient. Your dentist will have to determine the current health of your bones, teeth, and gums before a procedure can be determined. During this visit, the dentist will perform several exams, which may include the following:

  • Comprehensive Oral Exam
  • Impressions
  • Radiographs
  • Periodontal and oral cancer exam
  • Bite Analysis & TMJ Analysis
  • Radiographs (x-rays)

Cosmetic Dentistry Benefits

Patients who have had cosmetic dentistry procedure experience a wide range of benefits, including the following:

  • Aesthetically improved smile
  • Increased functionality
  • Increased strength and overall health of teeth
  • Decreased wear and added protection to remaining teeth
  • Correction of bite

Post Treatment Care

While there are generally no restrictions to your diet or eating habits following a cosmetic dentistry procedure, it is important to continue practicing good dental hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice daily and continue scheduling dentist appointments every six months.

Remember: the better you take care of your teeth, the better your teeth will take care of you!

Dental implants are the closest replacement to a natural tooth and they are designed to allow patients to complete their smile and begin chewing and biting like they used to. Dental implants also help maintain the integrity of the jawbone, and actively save the jaw from additional bone loss.
