With cosmetic dentistry, you can make your smile look better. If you’re thinking about getting one or more procedures done to improve your smile, keep reading to find out more.
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Enhance Your Smile?
You can decide if a treatment plan is right for you if you know more about cosmetic dentistry and the benefits of treatment. Here are some things you should know about how cosmetic dentistry can make your smile better, such as what it is, what treatments a general dentist can offer, and more.
What Are Cosmetic Dental Procedures?
Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on how a person’s smile looks. Many dentists care most about how healthy a patient’s teeth are and not as much about how their smile looks. A cosmetic dentistry treatment plan, on the other hand, focuses on the patient’s aesthetic goals as well as any oral health and function issues that may be present.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me Make My Smile Better?
Each patient’s treatment plan for cosmetic dentistry is made just for them. There are many different services that patients can choose from. Some of the most commonly recommended types are:
- Teeth whitening
- Color-matched crowns
- Dental veneers
- Composite bonding
- Orthodontic treatment
- Dental bridge
- Dental implants
Of course, each dentist is different in the treatments they offer. As part of the treatment plan, dentists can also send you to other dental professionals. For instance, a dentist might send a patient to an oral surgeon to have their wisdom teeth taken out before they get braces.
When Should I Think About Getting Cosmetic Dental Work?
Anyone who is unhappy with their smile is encouraged to get cosmetic dentistry. Some people get treatment just to feel better about how they look as they go about their daily lives. Others may wear them for a more specific reason like to look more professional at job interviews or when meeting with clients as part of their job.
If there are any oral health issues that need to be taken care of, the dentist may suggest that they be taken care of before starting any cosmetic dentistry. As part of a plan for cosmetic dentistry, a patient may need to have cavities filled before starting orthodontic care. During your first visit to the dentist, you can talk about your goals for how you want your teeth to look and any concerns you have about your oral health. At the end of the appointment, you and the dental team can make a treatment plan that fits your needs and goals.
How Do I Know Which Services are Right for Me?
The best way to make sure you get the results you want is to talk to a dentist about the treatment plan during a consultation visit. During this first visit, be sure to ask any questions you have. The staff should also tell you the pros and cons of each cosmetic dentistry procedure so you can make an informed decision about how to be treated. Among the things you should think about when deciding which cosmetic dentistry services to add to your treatment plan are the following:
- Your specific treatment goals
- Your schedule availability
- Your preferred timeline
- Your budget and insurance coverage
For example, if your main goal is to fix the shape of your teeth and get rid of severe stains, dental veneers might be your best option. This is especially true if you want treatment faster than what orthodontics can offer and if the stains are too bad for a professional in-office teeth-whitening procedure to fix.
How Can I Maintain the Results of My Treatment?
After you finish your cosmetic dentistry plan, you can keep your smile looking great by taking care of your teeth between visits and going to the dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups.
When you clean your teeth at home, you should brush them several times a day, floss at least once a day, and use mouthwash as your dentist tells you to. Smart choices about what you eat, like not eating too many carbs, can also help protect the results of your cosmetic dentistry treatment. At least once every four to six months, people should go to the dentist for a check-up.
