Function and Form: How Cosmetic Dentistry Helps

Cosmetic dentists do more than just fix the functionality of your teeth. They also help you regain your self-esteem by correcting aspects of your smile that you may be ashamed of. Your smile says a lot about you, so of course you’d want it to look the best that it possibly can. Here are a few ways in which cosmetic dentistry can help: 

Replace Missing Teeth
By using dental restorations, a cosmetic dentist can help fix any gaps that you have in your teeth. This includes small gaps to an entire mouthful of unevenly spaced teeth. Restorations are usually done with dental implants, crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Reshape Teeth
People who have pointy, worn-down, or oddly shaped teeth can also benefit from visiting a cosmetic dentist. One way they can fix the problem is through the use of porcelain veneers. The veneers help cover the damaged teeth and bring back the sparkle to your smile. Veneers are mostly used because they can be shaped exactly how you want them.

Lengthen Small Teeth
Dental veneers can also be used to bond to small teeth, which then alters the tooth to the length that you and your dentist agree on.

Whiten Teeth
One of the more popular procedures, teeth whitening helps remove pesky stains that may keep your teeth from looking flawless. The stains can come from smoking, drinking coffee, or acidic juices. Both in-office and take home treatments may be used.
