You know you have to take care of your teeth – it’s part of your overall health. But perhaps you have heard of cosmetic dentistry treatments and wondered exactly what they were, and if there are any specific benefits of having them.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments are simply anything that works to improve your smile, and has your overall dental health as a secondary or non-existent benefit.
Now, having said that, a responsible dentist will not consider cosmetic dentistry treatments unless your dental health is generally good. Dr. Harold Krinsky will not, for example, consider installing porcelain veneers over decayed teeth, or doing a whitening treatment if your teeth are vulnerable. Once we have ensured that your teeth are in good condition, though, we will be pleased to talk with you about treatments that can improve your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments work to improve your appearance and give back your self-confidence. Generally speaking, people are going to judge you on how you look. We know that isn’t fair, but it’s the way it is. So if you have issues that make you reluctant to smile, people could perceive you as unsociable or stand-offish, and that is very unfortunate.
There are a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments that are available to you that can give you the smile you want, so you can make the best possible first impression on the people you meet. For instance, if you have yellow or dingy teeth, you could benefit from a whitening treatment. If you have missing teeth, porcelain veneers or implants could be the solution. If you have several missing teeth and don’t want to incur the expense of dental implants, then you might consider dentures.
Whatever the issue, there is a solution.
