How has life been lately? If you’re a single person are you getting a lot of dates? Are you getting more job offers than usual? Does it seem as if everyone is smiling at you? If not, maybe it’s your teeth. Do you know how powerful an esthetically pleasing smile is? Research has shown that people who flash a smile of straight, white teeth get more dates, more job offers, more attention, and are even paid more! Can you believe it? So, listen to the cosmos. Are they telling you that you need cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic, Restorative, and General Dentistry
There is a difference between general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. The goal of general dentistry is to keep your teeth and oral tissues healthy with preventive care (bi-annual checkups and cleanings, x-rays, etc.). Restorative dentistry does just that it “restores” your teeth if you are experiencing cavities, lost teeth, chips or breaks in your teeth, etc. General dentistry and restorative dentistry should not be choices. You need general dentistry to keep your teeth healthy, you need restorative dentistry when your teeth are not healthy. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, is a choice. Perhaps your teeth and oral tissues are perfectly healthy but they are not very white, or they are not straight, or they are too big or too little, or misshapen, uneven, or you have a gummy smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct all that.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do For You
Cosmetic dentistry can whiten your teeth; cover craze lines, pits or fissures; make your teeth longer or shorter; change the shape of your teeth; correct misalignments; eliminate a gummy smile; and more. There are a number of cosmetic treatments to choose from including:
- Tooth Bonding
- Tooth Contouring
- Porcelain Veneers
- Tooth Whitening
- Gum Contouring
So if the cosmos (or maybe your mirror) are telling you that your teeth need work, they probably do. If so, contact your dentist today for a cosmetic dentistry consultation and see what they can do for you!
