Many people who get cosmetic dentistry work take years to actually schedule an appointment. Everyone knows that when they have a cavity or need a root canal, they have to see the dentist right away, but when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, people often have trouble making an investment in themselves. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to take the plunge and get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Here’s why.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Lead to Better Oral Health
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about aesthetics—some treatments also improve your overall oral health. You may want to get a veneer or bonding to fix a chipped or broken tooth because you feel embarrassed when you smile, but the result is a tooth that is stronger and a bite that functions properly. If you get Invisalign, it’s probably because you want straighter teeth, but you’ll also be able to floss better, which helps prevent cavities.
Even a simple teeth whitening treatment can improve your oral health—once you’ve invested in a whiter smile, you’ll brush and floss better to maintain the results!
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Bite
Related to the previous point, cosmetic dentistry can improve your bite—and we don’t just mean with Invisalign treatment. When your teeth don’t fit together properly, it can cause abnormal wear on your teeth, fractures, and migraines, but porcelain veneers can be used to correct slight misalignments in the teeth and give you a healthier bite in the process. While they’re no substitute for orthodontic treatment, when only minor correction is needed, veneers are a great alternative, especially if there are other cosmetic imperfections you’d like to correct.
Small Investments Yield Big Results
You’d be surprised how even the smallest cosmetic dental procedures can make a dramatic difference in someone’s experience. A chipped front tooth can be bonded for a complete smile transformation; yellowed teeth can be whitened, taking years off of your appearance; a gummy smile can easily be corrected by trimming away some of the excess gum tissue, revealing more of your teeth when you grin.
With just a minimal investment, you’ll leave our office looking healthier and more vibrant—you can achieve a beautiful smile even if a full set of dental veneers isn’t in your budget.
You Deserve to Have a Smile You’re Proud Of
Everyone should have the confidence to smile proudly. If you’ve spent your life avoiding the camera, smiling with tightly closed lips, or holding your hand up to your mouth when you laugh to hide your teeth, it’s time to treat yourself to a smile you feel good about. You’ll feel a weight lifted off your shoulders when you no longer have to hide your teeth from the world. That alone makes cosmetic dentistry worth the investment.
