What is Cosmetic Dentistry
Dentists define cosmetic dentistry as esthetic dentistry. It is a method of dentistry that improves a patient’s smile and self-image. An attractive smile affects your oral health. But in addition to that, it also affects your self-confidence and how the world perceives you. Research has shown that a big bright smile can positively impact social and professional life and mental and emotional well-being (learn more here).
Not only that, your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. It’s no question that a beautiful smile is a huge asset. Let’s look at some of the benefits of cosmetic dental treatment:
Improved appearance & self-confidence
Looking good makes us feel better about ourselves, bringing many benefits, from interacting with others to our feelings of self-worth. Self-esteem impacts every aspect of our lives.
Showing a full smile when we meet someone, whether at a job interview or a first date, should not be underestimated. Smiling on the inside is excellent, but we want that smile to be reflected on the outside as well.
Cosmetic dentistry tooth-colored dental bonding can improve the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth, enhancing self-confidence. Teeth whitening, straightening, or porcelain veneers, can give you a noticeable confidence boost so you can walk in that room with your head held high.
Improved diet, oral health & hygiene
Having missing teeth makes it difficult to chew some types of food and impacts the way we eat. An uneven bite may prevent us from chewing correctly, which can complicate our digestion. Dental problems that seem minor can impact what we eat daily. Cosmetic dentistry treatments, like inlays and onlays, help strengthen bites to improve our ability to chew food.
Cosmetic dentistry also protects against future dental issues. For example, dental crowns keep damaged teeth from further deterioration. Dental implants prevent damage to gums and bones.
Once you have put the time and money into making the smile of your dreams, you will be more motivated to maintain it. Spending more time taking care of your teeth by maintaining a proper oral hygiene regimen improves oral health.
