But, what do you do if your smile is less than perfect? Don’t worry, not all hope is lost. You can still make a good first impression by improving your smile.
Read on to learn all about cosmetic dentistry.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Very few people are born with a perfect smile. But, we all want a perfectly-straight, bright-white smile.
There are many different procedures that are considered cosmetic dentistry. Here are a few of the most popular ones:
- Teeth Whitening
- Gum Contouring
Before you decide to jump in and commit to a cosmetic procedure, you need to be aware of the risks and benefits.
As with any sort of medical procedure, there are risks associated with any cosmetic dentistry treatment, such as an allergic reaction. And because this is considered an elective procedure, most insurances will not cover the cost.
So just make sure you give your dentist a full medical history and figure out a payment plan before you start.
But, enough about the risks, let’s focus on the benefits.
1. Corrects Flaws
Stained teeth? We’ve got a solution for that. Chipped tooth? We’ve got a solution for that. Small teeth? We’ve got a solution for that.
You get the point.
No matter what you want to be fixed, it can be done. Just ask Dr. Dewitt, cosmetic dentistry is very versatile and can correct any problem.
2. Look Young Again
I know, this seems like an empty promise, but it’s true.
Your teeth are very good at showing their age. They turn yellow, they crack, they start to erode. All of these are signs of aging.
When you fix these issues, your smile will make you look young again. So go ahead, we give you permission to get a new lease on life by updating your pearly whites.
3. Enhance Your Career
If you are embarrassed by your smile, you are likely to hide behind a desk job that makes you miserable.
Don’t let your smile hold you back. You need the confidence to talk to people and to stand in front of the board room. No more hiding behind a computer.
Just because you aren’t a model or an actor doesn’t mean you can’t invest in yourself to help advance your career. Fix your smile so you can achieve exactly what you want in life.
4. Strengthens and Protects
Ok, let’s forget about appearance for a second, and focus on your oral health. Cosmetic dentistry can prevent future wear and tear on areas that are already compromised.
If you have a hairline fracture, jagged edges, or thinning enamel, certain cosmetic treatments can protect those areas. When your teeth are strengthened, you can enjoy your favorite foods with confidence.
The Smile You Deserve
Don’t hesitate any longer to get the perfect smile you’ve always wanted. Cosmetic dentistry can go a long way in how confident you and improve your overall oral health.
And speaking of making improvements, check out other ways you can improve your current lifestyle. I mean, you might as well start living your best life possible.
