In the past, when someone said they were considering having a cosmetic procedure, people automatically assumed they were referring to some form of plastic surgery. In this day and age, thanks to numerous technological advances, cosmetic dentistry has been making its way to the forefront as one of the more popular cosmetic procedures. That is not really surprising when you consider the fact that one of the first things people notice about you is your smile.
Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry and therefore do not take advantage of procedures that could give them the beautiful smile they have always wanted. Cosmetic dentistry does not address the prevention of tooth and gum decay, it does not diagnosis dental issues, nor does it treat oral disease. Those are all part of general dentistry. The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your smile. Some of the procedures that are commonly used to achieve this include:
If you have cavities that were previously filled using silver, gold, amalgam or other metals, they can now be replaced by porcelain fillings or composite fillings. Doing this gives a more natural appearance to your teeth and makes your smile much brighter. Removing coffee stains, smoke stains and other stains from your teeth can now be done using a simple teeth whitening procedure. In most cases, cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance of any tooth- or gum-related issue in order to give you the smile you can feel confident about showing off.
