Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you, and it wasn’t all that long ago that if you had a less than dazzling smile, you pretty much had to live with it. With today’s cosmetic dentistry procedures, though, anyone can have a beautiful smile. So if you’re wondering if you are a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, just ask yourself two questions: “Is my general dental health good?” and “Would I like to have a better smile?” If your answer to both questions is “Yes,” then you are definitely a candidate for cosmetic dentistry.
A cosmetic dentist can recommend treatments that will whiten your teeth, correct chipping, fix crowding, replace metal fillings, close up gaps between your teeth, and even replace missing teeth. There are many procedures that will improve the way your smile looks.
Do you find that you try very hard not to smile, or open your mouth much? That is really unfortunate, because everyone should be able to smile. Perhaps your teeth are dingy or yellowed, and if that’s the case, the solution could be as simple as a whitening treatment. Or, you may have teeth that are decayed or cracked, in which case tooth colored fillings can give you the smile you want – usually in a single visit. The same material that is used to correct decayed or cracked teeth can be used to close up gaps or correct chipping, and even cover discolored areas. For multiple problems, you could consider porcelain veneers, which cover the front of your teeth and hide many imperfections. More severe issues can be corrected with dental crowns. And if you have missing teeth, you could consider bridgework or implants.
In short, virtually any dental imperfection has a solution. You are a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, and you do not have to settle for an unsatisfactory smile.
If you have multiple cosmetic dentistry issues, then you could be a candidate for a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover. A smile makeover is any combination of treatments that give you the smile you want.
If you have been living with a smile that doesn’t please you, then cosmetic dentistry really could change your life. As a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, you can enjoy a better appearance, and renewed self-esteem.
