Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Dentist refer to procedures that can help enhance the appearance of your smile as cosmetic dentistry. These procedures can improve functionality (ex: Being able to chew food, boost in confidence, perform day to day tasks with ease, etc.) which in turn improves the quality of life of the patient.

Cosmetic dentistry has many benefits. Some will be universal, and some will be very personal to you. Some of the main reasons patients choose to improve their smile through the many procedures cosmetic dentistry has to offer.

  • More Confidence in Your Smile

One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. If you have a healthy, straight white smile that you’re proud to show off, you’ll often feel more confident in your appearance. This will enable you to speak up in meetings and social situations, smile and laugh freely, and feel confident in photos, videos, and everyday life.

  • A More Functional Smile

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t always purely cosmetic. Procedures like dental implants can restore your smile and return your ability to eat, drink, and speak normally again. Being able to do these things freely and without a second thought is integral to achieving and maintaining a high quality of life.

  • A Youthful Appearance

A healthy white smile can take years off your appearance, and help you to look and feel young again.

  • Your Own Preferences

Cosmetic dentistry may benefit you in a very personal way. Maybe you’ve always felt self-conscious, and are looking for a permanent solution to help you love the way your smile looks and boost your self-esteem.  Maybe you have chipped, cracked, or missing teeth that cause pain and malfunction. Even if it’s just a few crooked teeth out of place that a few months of braces can solve, you deserve to feel happy with and confident in your smile.

Veneers

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural look of teeth while also providing strength and reliences comparable to natural tooth enamel. Veneers are a great option for those with stained, chipped or gapped teeth.

Dental Implants

A composite restoration is a combination of tooth-colored glass and plastic, those who wish to reshape a tooth or restore decayed teeth greatly benefit from this treatment. Composites bond to the remaining tooth and support its current structure which helps prevent any future breakage.

Implant-supported Dentures

An implant-supported denture is retained and supported by four or more dental implants, they are fixed on implants which are embedded in the bone. Patients who opt for this type of treatment can expect the implant-supported dentures to last between 5-10 years.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Unlike removable devices such as dentures, dental crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants and can only be removed by a dentist. A dental crown is used to cap a damaged tooth and strengthen it over time and can also be used to improve appearance, shape and alignment. A dental bridge is usually placed when a patient is missing one or more teeth to prevent TMJ disorder as well as shifting teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Your teeth are naturally more yellow than they are white, the food you eat and your lifestyle can also contribute to the coloring of your teeth. Although your teeth aren’t naturally white and shiny, it is a desirable look for many. Teeth whitening is a very popular way to get the sparkling smile you want as it is a quick and easy process. Whiting products have one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) which break stains into smaller pieces and makes the color less constrained. After that, you are left with noticeably whiter teeth!

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full mouth rehabilitation means rebuilding or replacing all the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Those who require this treatment would have numerous teeth missing, badly worn teeth or a large amount of decaying teeth. Having a full mouth rehabilitation would improve both function and appearance.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. Pham. She makes sure the work is done perfectly. I have never had a dentist so involved in every part of the appointment as I have with Dr. Pham. She doesn’t just do a little bit of the work, she does just about all the work even with cleanings. In the two appointments, I have had I have been highly impressed. The care and attention goes beyond anything I have ever experienced before with any other dentist. I highly recommend Jensen Lakes Dental. 👍👍👍

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Below are answers to questions many of our patients have asked when considering cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Cosmetic dentistry is an option for anyone looking to improve the look of their smile. If you’re looking for professional whitening so your teeth will really pop, a cosmetic dentist can help you find the shade that will work for you. If you chip or crack your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help to restore them. 

It can also be a saving grace for severely crooked, impacted, broken, or missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can solve even the most severe cases of misalignment, with a treatment plan designed specifically to your needs. No two treatments will ever be the same, and your own cosmetic dental journey will differ greatly from anyone else’s. If you’re interested in a consultation to see what cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile, don’t hesitate to ask questions! 

Many people are under the impression that cosmetic dentistry will only affect the appearance of your smile. The reality is that getting cosmetic work done can relieve stress, pain, and discomfort that you may be experiencing due to a misaligned jaw, or crooked teeth.

Here are some of the less talked about benefits of cosmetic dentistry.

  • Proper jaw and teeth development once treated
  • Easier breathing and eating
  • A significant boost in self-esteem
  • Better oral hygiene

Straight teeth are much easier to keep clean, as there are fewer gaps. At the end of your treatment, you can anticipate an easier brushing and flossing routine.

Of course, there will always be other benefits that are very personal to you. This could include finally having the confidence to speak up in a meeting, no longer feeling self-conscious on a first date, and so much more.

Every smile is entirely unique. This means that every treatment plan we create will vary as we tailor them to each patient’s individual needs and goals. Treatment time will also vary based on what method of treatment you choose. 

If you choose to straighten your teeth with Invisalign or braces, you can expect your treatment to take anywhere from a few months to a few years. A few crooked teeth can be corrected in a short amount of time with the right guidance, whereas severe malocclusions can often take a year or two to fully treat. Your dentist will always estimate your treatment timeline for you so you have a vague idea of what you’re in for.

Treatments like porcelain veneers often require just a handful of visits before your smile makeover is complete. Make sure to discuss your goals and smile vision with your dentist so they know exactly how to help you, and are able to give you your dream smile as quickly as possible. 

Coverage for cosmetic dentistry can vary based on necessity. Due to the fact that cosmetic dental procedures are often used to correct aesthetic issues, you may be required to pay for them out of pocket. You can discuss your current coverage with your employer and identify any areas where you may be able to utilize some of your dental coverage for cosmetic dentistry.

Alternatively, some cosmetic dentistry procedures can be considered medically necessary. For example, extreme decay that’s causing tooth loss or broken teeth is a medical issue that needs to be treated. In this case, you may be able to have some of the procedures covered by insurance. It all depends on your reason for seeking out cosmetic treatment, and the type of insurance plan that you have.
