Reasons to Undergo Cosmetic Dentistry

By Dennis Sternberg on December 08, 2008

There are as many reasons to undergo cosmetic dentistry procedures as there are unique smiles.� Cosmetic dentistry treatments can be performed to conceal or repair a number of aesthetic flaws, ranging from the minor to the conspicuous.� Gaps between teeth, genetic discoloration, stains, chips, cracks, dullness and wear, and other aesthetic problems in teeth can be addressed with a minimal investment of time on the part of the patient.� When performed by an experienced cosmetic dentist with an artistic eye, treatments such as porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, teeth whitening, and dental bonding can make it appear as though a patient was simply born with a brilliant, gleaming smile full of white, uniform teeth.In many cases, a treatment performed mainly to correct an aesthetic flaw can have a profoundly positive effect on a patient's overall oral health.� For example, a dental bridge used to replace a missing tooth will not only restore the beauty of a patient's smile, but it will prevent adjacent teeth from shifting toward a gap, thereby maintaining the structural integrity of the patient's mouth.� Likewise, a porcelain crown can be used to conceal even the most severe structural damage to a tooth while strengthening that tooth and reducing or eliminating the pain associated with tooth breakage. While many people turn to cosmetic dentistry simply to refine their smiles, a good number are hoping to completely reinvent their appearance.� A smile makeover, comprised of several customized dental treatments strategically combined, can produce dramatic results, transforming even the most damaged smiles into dazzling masterpieces.� Ultimately, the reason for undergoing cosmetic dental treatments is a highly personal one; there is no reason more compelling than any other.� As long as the patient has a clear goal in mind and realistic expectation, cosmetic dentistry can be a life-changing, transformative experience.
