The Benefits of Seeing a Cosmetic Dentist
Cosmetic dentistry is not an official dental specialty; rather, the term is used to indicate a dentist’s interest in all of the components of a healthy, beautiful smile. People might assume that cosmetic dentistry only focuses on aesthetics—to improve a patient’s smile or enhance their outward appearance. Cosmetic dentists like Dr. Beckel and Dr. Robbins can also improve a patient’s oral health and overall quality of life.
Here are a few other benefits a cosmetic dentist can provide:
- Improved confidence – A cosmetic dentist will work to fix obvious visible problems with the teeth and smile. This may include reshaping teeth, whitening teeth, placing porcelain veneers and many other treatment options. These procedures can help patients experience a boost in self-confidence by resolving minor physical concerns the patient may have with their teeth.
- Better oral health – Our cosmetic dentists work to improve the mouth as a whole. This may include treating gum disease, removing decayed or infected teeth, and replacing missing teeth with implants or bridges. Once finished, the patient can enjoy significantly improved oral health.
- Reduced pain and discomfort – A cosmetic dentist can often help patients who suffer from TMJ problems. Implants, bridges and other techniques can help alleviate pain or discomfort and restore proper bite and tooth function.
