What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry procedures can change appearance of your teeth or smile, improve their overall look, or even remedy some oral health problems like minor bite irregularities. Some common cosmetic dentistry procedures include professional teeth whitening, bonding, tooth contouring or reshaping, and veneers.
Why Do I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?
You may need cosmetic dentistry to rectify an oral health issue, or you might wish to improve the overall look of your smile. Whether for cosmetic or health reasons, cosmetic dentistry can increase confidence, improve overall oral health, and demonstrate an investment in your smile.
What Should I Expect at My First Cosmetic Dentistry Appointment?
An initial cosmetic dentistry appointment is usually a consultation. Your dentist can often provide that consultation on top of a standard dental cleaning appointment, where you’ll look at your teeth and smile and discuss aspects you like and dislike, including the color and shape of your teeth.
After that initial consultation, you and your dentist will create a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?
Your cosmetic dentistry results might be temporary, as in with procedures such as professional whitening, or permanent like veneers. Talk to your dentist about your options and what results you can expect.
It’s important to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible after any cosmetic dentistry procedure. Good dental hygiene habits will help ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your treatment, and help prevent future ones. Your Huntley Dental Associates team can help ensure that you develop and continue healthy hygiene practices.
