Does Your Smile Need Cosmetic Dentistry? Part Two

added on: May 20, 2016

Even after weeks or months of research, are you still on the fence about whether or not to seek out cosmetic dentistry? You already know that you are tired of feeling insecure because of imperfections in your smile, yet are you unsure if cosmetic dentistry can really help. There are a number of reasons people might shy away from cosmetic dentistry. Some worry that they won’t be able to achieve their dream smile, even with treatment. Others are concerned about the cost, or wonder if the enhancements will last long enough to make cosmetic dentistry a worthwhile investment. Some may even be concerned about whether or not the cosmetic treatments will damage their healthy tooth enamel. Fortunately, a cosmetic dentist can help address each of these concerns, and help you determine the best way to go about treating your smile. So if you know you want a straighter, brighter, or more beautiful smile, don’t wait any longer to find out just how cosmetic dentistry can help.

What Are the Various Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Not all patients are concerned solely by the shade of their teeth. For many patients, the reasons for seeking cosmetic treatment are complex or varied. Some patients may be embarrassed by oddly sized or shaped teeth, jagged edges, or even minor gaps between teeth. Many struggle with a combination of the above, leading them to feel incredibly insecure when showing their smiles.

Fortunately there is one comprehensive treatment that can often address all these issues and more. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry for this very reason. Veneers can help make teeth appear more symmetrical, brighter and even create the appearance of a more properly aligned smile.

Thanks to porcelain’s strength and stain-resistance, many patients are able to enjoy their improved smiles for more than a decade!
