Cosmetic dentistry is a facet of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of a patient’s teeth and smile. A beautiful smile can make all the difference in a patient’s confidence and day-to-day life.
Common problems that can be helped by cosmetic dentistry include:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Worn teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Deformed teeth
- Gaps between teeth
More than one cosmetic dentistry procedure can be performed in a single session to improve several aspects of your smile.
Additional Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
In addition to improving the look of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help you avoid dental health problems in the future. By addressing damaged or misaligned teeth, cosmetic dentistry will keep your gums and bones safe from deterioration and disease.
Cosmetic dentistry can also help patients with damaged or missing teeth speak and eat easily. Even a single missing tooth can make it hard to chew your favorite foods, and it may impact your speech. By amending that missing tooth with cosmetic dentistry, you can get back to eating and speaking comfortably.
