What can a Cosmetic Dentist do for you?

Duane Kelly

Beauty or aesthetics are highly valued in today's modern world. Whereby actors, models and almost every person using social media, always has to 'look pretty for the camera'. Part of this beauty includes having a bright and flawless smile. However, not everyone is gifted with a perfect smile, and hence the need of the services of a cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic dentistry is a field in dentistry which is purely aesthetic based. However, a cosmetic dentist may still be able to perform procedures that can improve teeth functionality. The main purpose of this type of dentistry is to improve the color, shape, position, alignment and size of teeth, in order to create a more beautiful smile and appearance. So, what can a cosmetic dentist do for you? Here are some answers to this question:

  • Whiten Teeth: Teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry. These procedures range from the more effective in-office treatments, to the less effective take-home remedies. The in-office procedures are more effective because they are performed by a professional cosmetic dentist using specialized tools and products.
  • Replace missing teeth: If you are missing one or two teeth, a cosmetic dentist can replace these missing teeth. This professional can perform teeth restoration procedures such as dental crowns, dental implants, dentures and dental bridges, which are aimed at restoring your natural look.
  • Straighten misaligned or crooked teeth: Traditionally, people with misaligned teeth would have had to wear metal braces for a certain period, in order to straighten their teeth. However, advancements in dentistry have brought about better options such as clear braces and porcelain veneers, which can straighten teeth without the disadvantages of metal braces such as discomfort.
  • Restore damaged teeth: Teeth are susceptible to a lot of wear and tear, which is often revealed through chips, cracks or discoloration. A reputable cosmetic dentist can restore your damaged teeth to their former glory or even better. For instance, a dental crown which mimics the natural look and feel of natural teeth can be placed on a chipped or cracked tooth to make it whole and perfect.

Whether you are looking to enhance an already beautiful smile with a tooth whitening procedure, or are looking to have your broken or missing tooth fixed, a cosmetic dentist is the right professional to visit. This professional not only offers aesthetic value, but he/she also performs procedures that can raise your self-confidence.
