What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a category of dentistry that seeks to improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth and smiles. On the other hand, it is very important to understand that in dentistry, aesthetics and oral health often go hand in hand. Indeed, an undesirable appearance of teeth can often result from issues like tooth wear, thinning enamel, loss of a tooth and more. Some problems even lead to a loss of functionality of the teeth, such as a missing tooth for example. It is therefore very important to replace it as much for the functional side as for the aesthetic side.
Cosmetic dentistry therefore includes several aspects in order to respond to various problems:
- Porcelain veneers
- Composite veneers
- Orthodontic treatments
- Teeth whitening
- Gum grafts
- Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)
- Anti-aging dentistry
The benefits of cosmetic dentistry
Physical appearance and smile are an important part of what we build our self-confidence and self-esteem on. It can be difficult to accept a smile that is not to our liking or that has changed over time. Cosmetic dentistry can not only get you back to a healthy-looking smile, it will also allow you to start smiling again without embarrassment!
It is also important to mention the importance of a mouth that works as well as possible. If we talk about orthodontic treatments or the replacement of a tooth, for example, they significantly affect the basic functions of your mouth. It will be easier for you to chew, to speak and this could greatly reduce your chances of suffering from other future problems that would arise by not fixing the source of the problem.
A healthy mouth that is pleasant to look at is the goal!
