August 19, 2020 – Cosmetic Dentistry – Why Now

Posted .

How do you feel about your smile? Do you share it freely or does it cause you to feel self-conscious? Research has shown that a great smile portrays a variety of positive traits such as happiness, honesty, health and success.

While the intention of cosmetic dentistry is to improve a person’s appearance by restoring their smile, cosmetic dentistry is not just about aesthetics. Cosmetic dentistry also provides a person with many health benefits. It not only has a lot to do with keeping your gums and teeth healthy but it has been proven to improve a person’s physical health.

Imperfections in your smile such as discolored teeth, cracked teeth and/ or missing teeth can make simple tasks such as chewing food uncomfortable and possibly causing digestive problems. Further, when your teeth are crooked and misaligned it causes your bite to be imbalanced, often resulting in a person to begin to develop chronic headaches and migraines due to stress on the jaw muscles.

Once a person has improved the appearance of their teeth/ smile, often it motivates them to change/ improve their drinking and eating habits. To prevent their teeth from getting discolored or stained, they now avoid drinking sugary beverages, eating junk foods and smoking which leads to improving their physical health.

There are a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments to choose from, some more popular than others. Listed below are some of the most popular ones:

• Teeth whitening
• Porcelain veneers
• Dental bonding
• White cavity fillings
