Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Few of us are born with flawless smiles, and even if we are, we may lose them due to injury or decay. This is why cosmetic dentistry is such a useful option, and at Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA, we want patients to understand the many benefits of cosmetic dentistry solutions available in our office.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Before you dismiss the idea of cosmetic dentistry as vanity or all about appearances, give us a moment. As your preferred dentist in Stockton, we offer you access to skilled cosmetic dentists who can provide treatments to boost the esthetic value of your smile, such as porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, but the benefits of cosmetic dentistry extend beyond mere appearances.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Restorations
What that short list tells you is that the benefits of cosmetic dentistry can also include restorative benefits too. As an illustration of this, you may come to us seeking a smile makeover. You may have perfectly healthy teeth and gums but you may dislike the look of the smile because of a chipped tooth or some unevenly spaced teeth. We can recommend several solutions, and bonding or veneers may be among them. Though both bring you the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, when used to address something like chipped teeth, they also strengthen and stabilize the teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Appearance
So, in addition to the purely esthetic, your cosmetic dentistry solutions may restore and strengthen some of your teeth. This is the case with treatments like crowns as well as inlays or onlays. However, there is also the increase in self-confidence and self-esteem that comes with an enhanced smile.
Just consider how often some people hide their smiles or keep their lips together when they grin. This may be due to their self-consciousness about the appearance of their smile. Over time, not smiling becomes a habit and that can reduce the overall quality of someone’s life. When you can use cosmetic dentistry solutions to improve the look of the smile, it automatically allows the individual to smile comfortably again, encouraging a happier and healthier life.
