Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Meadows Dental Care offers a wide range of dental services to patients of all ages including cosmetic dentistry. As a specialized area of dental care, cosmetic dentistry focuses on helping patients improve the health of their smiles as well as functionality while creating an aesthetically-pleasing smile. There are many benefits associated with cosmetic dentistry including:

Can Give You a White, Bright Dazzling Smile

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures as most people love having bright, white smiles. As time marches on, everyone's teeth begin to lose their white appearance. Sometimes teeth stain and discolor due to the foods we eat, medications we take and because of tobacco use or poor oral hygiene. If you have dull, stained or discolored teeth, a cosmetic dentist can restore your natural white smile using effective and safe teeth whitening methods.

Can Improve Imperfections in Your Smile Using Veneers

If you have spaces between your teeth, broken or chipped teeth or teeth that are crooked or misshapen, cosmetic dentistry can help. Dental veneers are thin, semi-translucent “shells” which are attached to front teeth to improve these types of imperfections.

Can Help Improve Tooth Function with Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are coverings that fit over decayed or damaged teeth. Patients have many choices when it comes to the material used for their dental crowns as many different materials are used to make crowns including gold, silver and porcelain. Once a crown is placed, tooth function is improved as is appearance.

Can Replace Missing Teeth

Another very popular procedure offered by dentists specializing in cosmetic dentistry is dental implant surgery. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement that looks, feels and functions just like a natural tooth. A dental implant is often the best option for replacing a missing tooth because implants are strong, durable and very long lasting. Bridges and dentures are two more options for replacing missing teeth that many cosmetic dentists offer.
