The benefits of esthetic dentistry
Although esthetic dentistry, often called cosmetic dentistry, focuses on how attractive your smile can be, it can offer several benefits to your overall health and well-being. We notice confidence increases when a patient has his or her teeth whitened or walks out of our office with a beautiful porcelain veneer. A person with an attractive smile reaps several benefits. According to studies, the smile is one of the first features a person notices when meeting someone. Smiling releases endorphins, which boosts the mood. A confident smile might help you secure a job. By keeping the smile healthy, you can prevent oral conditions such as tooth decay. You also can prevent gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss among adults ages 65 and older.
Exploring the options
Esthetic procedures include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays, dental implants, and bridges. We offer at-home teeth whitening treatment that allows you to gradually whiten your teeth and attain the smile of your dreams. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells placed on teeth that are discolored, misshapen, misaligned, or gapped. Crowns, inlays, and onlays can be fabricated in a single appointment by utilizing CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) technology and are used to treat decayed or damaged teeth. Dental implants are titanium rods placed into the jawbone during surgery that are eventually paired with porcelain crowns to restore beauty to the smile. Bridges contain artificial teeth and crowns to restore missing teeth.
