Cosmetic dentistry includes treatments and procedures that help you have a beautiful, healthy smile so you look great and feel more confident at just about any age. In some cases, cosmetic dentistry may also include restorative procedures to “fill in” for missing teeth or to correct a “gummy” smile. The most common cosmetic dentistry treatments include:
teeth whitening procedures
veneers and bonding
caps and crowns
contouring and tooth reshaping
replacement of dark filings with tooth-colored fillings
Dr. Follette can also design a series of treatments to achieve a complete smile makeover that can improve the way you feel about your appearance.
Patients who have concerns about the way their smile looks, those with missing or crooked teeth and those whose teeth appear discolored are all ideal candidates for cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic treatments can also address issues like cracked, chipped or broken teeth. Some procedures, such as those aimed at replacing missing teeth, can also help prevent decay or tooth loss in the future, and they may also help prevent jaw misalignment that can occur over time when missing teeth cause changes in bite patterns.
As noted, the primary benefit of cosmetic procedures is an increased feeling of self-confidence, at work, at home and during social events. For most people, the smile is the first thing they notice, and people with healthy-looking smiles are more likely to be confident when meeting new people or interacting with others professionally and socially. In fact, a study conducted on behalf of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry shows that a beautiful smile not only makes you appear more attractive, but it may also help you appear more intelligent and successful to other people.
