What in the World is a Cosmetic Dentist?

Posted on by admin in Blog

cosmetic dentistThere’s nothing more valuable than a beautiful smile. You can’t put a price tag on the radiating confidence you feel when your mouth is full of bright, white chompers.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 99.7% of Americans believe a smile is important to social interaction. Unfortunately, many people facing dental issues think they are stuck with a flawed smile forever, which couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Cosmetic dentistry has advanced by leaps and bounds in the past decade with the development of new dental technologies, making it possible for people of all ages and backgrounds to finally have the beautiful teeth they’ve always wanted. Here’s a few common FAQs about cosmetic dentistry, and how it can change your life for the better.

What is a cosmetic dentist?
A cosmetic dentist specializes in the restoration and revitalization of your pearly whites. They are in a specialized category of dentists that deal with the aesthetic aspects of your teeth, as opposed to a general family dentist who can only perform cleanings and other routine dental work.

What can a cosmetic dentist do for me?
The real question is what can’t a cosmetic dentist do for you. Dental bridges (false teeth), tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth reshaping (fixing a chipped tooth), gum lifts…you name your dental qualm, and a cosmetic dentist can fix it. There is no limit to how fantastic your teeth and gums can look.

Am I the only one who needs cosmetic dentistry?
Absolutely not. Many people have issues with the way their teeth are and are in desperate need of solutions. About 75% say that they feel an unattractive smile can harm their chances of a successful career, and Americans spend over $1.4 billion every single year on cosmetic dentistry. Improving the way you feel about yourself is never something to be ashamed of.

Now that you know what a cosmetic dentist is and the services they offer, make some quick notes on what you wish was better about your teeth and gums. It could be a chipped tooth you never got around to fixing, or just a simple whitening to freshen up your teeth. The possibilities are endless when it comes to cosmetic dentistry.
