More and more people recently have opted to have cosmetic dental procedures. These procedures have taken our country by storm. Many people are improving the quality of their teeth, lives, and self esteem by having these dental procedures done. Their teeth and mouths have been looking a lot better and given them a smile similar to their favorite actor, actress, or celebrity. I have always thought about having some of these procedures done myself. I believe anyone can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. We are a nation that enjoys a lot of coffee and tobacco, therefore many of us should think about seeing a cosmetic dentist.
Years of drinking coffee, chewing tobacco, or smoking cigarettes can take its toll on the teeth. They get stained very easily and can cause others to prejudge us based on how our teeth look. Getting a teeth whitening can improve self esteem and quality of life in many ways. It can help us in a interview and get that job we always wanted or give us the confidence and motivation to approach someone who is attractive to us. People are also more willing to speak or be accepting of someone that has good oral hygiene and a shiny white smile.
Cosmetic dentists can also help people that are missing teeth or lost teeth in an accident. In the same sort of way that a plastic surgeon helps someone with a visually unappealing injury a cosmetic dentist helps those with an unappealing smile. Many things can cause tooth lose. Poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, and accidents especially in sports can cause tooth loss. Cosmetic dentists can fix these issues with dentures or dental implants. Imagine having a brand new set of teeth instead of spaces!
Cosmetic dentists can also help people whose teeth might be too small or too large. You might know someone who has very large teeth and are not proportional to that person’s mouth. Cosmetic dentists can file or remove portions of the teeth to make them fit better in the mouth. But what about people whose teeth are too small, what can be done for them? Porcelain veneers and lumineers can be placed on the teeth in order to give them a larger appearance. That way, this person now has an even smile since all of the teeth are now proportional to each other and the person’s mouth.
