5 Reasons to Love Cosmetic Dentistry

As far as your dentist is concerned, there are only reasons to love cosmetic dentistry. Some patients, however, need a little convincing about the benefits of this arm of dental care. Learn more about some of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments and why it might be time to let yourself fall in love with them.

1. Fix the Little Problems Quickly and Easily

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment often overlooked by patients. It’s not the first kind of treatment that comes to mind when you have an aesthetic issue, but bonding can change your smile dramatically in no time.

The procedure only takes about 30 minutes per tooth and it can fix everything from chips and cracks to gaps and stains. Bonding is a noninvasive procedure and numbing agents are usually not necessary. If you need a quick solution that is secure and long-lasting, or you want a fix for your smile that is long overdue, ask your dentist about dental bonding

2. Straighten Your Smile Discreetly

Invisalign is considered a cosmetic dentistry treatment though it of course fits into the orthodontic category too. You can wear these discreet, customized aligners for six months to about a year to straighten your smile completely. Both tooth roots and crowns are shifted into the proper order so your teeth look better, feel better, and work better.

Of course, the best part of Invisalign is that no one will ever know you’re undergoing the treatment unless you share it with them. The trays are snug and slim and clasp to the teeth so perfectly they’re difficult to see.

3. Conceal Every Aesthetic Complaint

The star of cosmetic dentistry is porcelain veneers. This treatment is customized in size, shape, color, and length to be as flattering and natural-looking as possible. Plus, veneers conceal everything you dislike about the appearance of your smile, whether it’s crooked or stained or gapped or otherwise. Veneers are the one-stop-shop of cosmetic dentistry treatments.

4. Brighten Your Smile Almost Instantly

Have an hour to spare and need a pick-me-up for your smile? Professional teeth whitening is the answer. This one-hour treatment can make your teeth multiple shades whither for a smile that looks flawless, even though it might not be completely perfect.

If you’d rather whiten your teeth on your own time, you can still take advantage of the pro bleaching materials your dentist offers and get customized whitening trays and gel. After a few weeks of daily wear, your smile will be gleaming bright.

5. Transform Your Appearance

One cosmetic dentistry treatment can transform your appearance or several can make all the difference. It all depends on what you have going on with your teeth and how different you want them to look. Regardless of how many treatments you undergo, if they alter the look of your smile, you can consider them a smile makeover.

If you are dissatisfied with the stains on your tooth enamel, the alignment of your smile, or the gaps between your teeth, one or multiple treatments can take care of these complaints. Work with your Arlington dentist near me to find out what is best for your oral health and what is the right path to transform your smile. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Alana Macalik today.
