Cosmetic Dental Concerns
Treating even minor imperfections, such as gaps between teeth and misshapen teeth, can improve the appearance of your smile and protect your oral health. Many cosmetic dental concerns are also oral health problems. Crooked, chipped, or cracked teeth can lead to tooth decay and infection.
Receding gums are visually disruptive to a smile but can lead to gum disease and tooth loss. Missing teeth are embarrassing and linked to an increased risk of complex issues, including bone recession in the jaw. Patients with cosmetic-related dental concerns should always consult with a cosmetic dentist as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the teeth and gums.

Dental veneers are thin shells made of high-quality dental ceramic. Custom-designed shells blend in and redesign your teeth’ color, shape, and size. Dental veneers reflect light and look and feel like natural teeth.
Our porcelain veneer treatment can correct various dental problems, such as chipped or stained teeth. In addition, they can also improve the look of your smile by correcting gaps between teeth and by changing the shape and size of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive than other cosmetic dentistry procedures because they require less work on the part of a dentist. In addition, porcelain veneers do not require any anesthesia or surgery.
Discolored teeth are a common cosmetic concern. Teeth whitening treatments can comfortably and quickly whiten and brighten your teeth. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that many people opt for and has many benefits. The most obvious benefit of teeth whitening at the dentist is that it can significantly improve the look of one’s smile. When teeth stains are prominent, your teeth can appear yellow or brown and unattractive. This treatment will make them look whiter and much more attractive.
Another benefit is that it can improve oral health by strengthening the tooth enamel. This will help to prevent cavities, decay, and gum disease, as well as reduce one’s risk for these problems in the future. We offer Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure and an at-home whitening kit.
Dental bonding is an ideal cosmetic treatment for patients who are not ready to commit to porcelain veneers. Tooth bonding can improve a tooth’s color, shape, and size. This cosmetic dental procedure can also cover up stains and fix chipped, cracked, discolored, or misshapen teeth. It is extremely cost-effective and complete in a single office visit.
Clear Invisalign aligners are a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces that can straighten crooked and crowded teeth. Patients can remove their Invisalign trays to eat and brush their teeth. Invisalign also allows patients to eat foods they enjoy without restriction.
Why is Cosmetic Dentistry Important?
Your smile is a large part of your face, visible when you’re talking, eating, or smiling and laughing. When your smile has some aesthetic issues, it’s hard to be confident in it. It shouldn’t be a feature that you’re trying to hide or avoid showing people. Smiles convey happiness, and they should be something that you’re proud to show off. Cosmetic dentistry helps many patients get the smile of their dreams and, in turn, get their confidence back.
But cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for aesthetic value. Many cosmetic dental problems are caused by underlying issues that impact your oral health. When we approach a cosmetic dental problem, it’s important for us to identify the root cause. Once we know this, we can treat that cause, taking care of both your aesthetic and functional oral health concerns.
One of the most prominent examples of this is treating crooked teeth. It’s hard to want to show off a smile with crooked, jumbled teeth. But crooked teeth also increase the likelihood of various oral health problems. They’re harder to clean because there are more small nooks and crannies. Food particles and bacteria build up in the areas that your toothbrush can’t quite reach properly. This buildup makes you more likely to suffer from tooth decay or gum disease.
Crooked teeth produce an uneven bite, a main factor in developing TMJ disorders. When your bite doesn’t come together properly, the jaw doesn’t track smoothly as it should. There’s a disc of cartilage in that joint that gets worn down due to improper function. This causes pain and other complications. Left untreated, you may have problems biting or even opening and closing your mouth.
Since your bite is uneven, the pressure of your bite isn’t distributed equally. Some teeth take on more pressure and stress than others. These teeth wear down faster than normal teeth and are more prone to breaking and cracking. Restorative dentistry solutions are needed to fix these conditions before we take care of the cosmetics of your smile.
