Cosmetic dentistry is more common than you might think. In fact, you probably pass dozens of people a day who have have seen a cosmetic dentist, including many of your friends. Cosmetic dentistry is an affordable way to change your looks, your self-esteem, and the way that people look at you.
Veneers: Veneers are one of the most common forms of cosmetic dentistry for a number of reasons. First of all, they won’t stain as easily as your normal teeth, so you’re less susceptible to coffee and tea stains. Second, they protect your teeth and your natural enamel. Finally, they are sometimes called “braces-free braces” because they can change the appearance of teeth without having to move them. For example, veneers can be made wider than your teeth in order to fill in gaps that you might be self-conscious about.
Braces: Everyone knows what braces are, as they’re one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures done. Sometimes braces aren’t just cosmetic, but are medically necessary in order to fix someone’s bite or to move teeth before incoming teeth push them out. Either way, they’re a great way to improve you smile!
Dental Implants: Dental implants are another procedure that falls into the cosmetic / medically necessary category. The cosmetic side is easy to understand…if you’re missing teeth, people look at you differently. They’re important medically because, when you have missing teeth, your jaw bone atrophies if it doesn’t receive constant pressure. Dental implants fix your smile and also put pressure on your jaw, exercising your jaw bone every time you eat.
