Want to know how much great looking teeth and a beautiful smile matter? According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, about 99.7% of adults believe that a person’s smile is a social asset and having nice teeth can absolutely boost your confidence when meeting new people.
However, not all of us are lucky to have perfect looking teeth. Some have missing teeth due to accidents or injuries while others may have developed crooked teeth with discoloration and cavities. Faced with these situations, most people would become shy and tend to just cover their mouths every time they would talk or laugh in order to hide their dental misfortune.
Cosmetic Dentistry to the Rescue
If you would like to get back your beautiful smile, replace a missing tooth, or straighten crooked teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help. This branch of dentistry is not just about teeth whitening like what most people believe. It has actually done a lot to improve a person’s dental health and give back his/her confident smile.
Below are some of the other cosmetic dentistry procedures you can ask your Kennewick WA dentist about:
Teeth Reshaping/Resizing – This procedure is best for people who have lost their confidence over crooked and uneven teeth. It can also help repair gaps between teeth and fix a chipped tooth.
Veneers – Veneers are made of thin porcelain or resin materials that are placed in front of your damaged tooth giving it that instant improvement in appearance. They also match the natural color of your teeth and can alter how they look in terms of size, shape, and length.
Bonding – Dental bonding also covers resizing and contouring, but it is more focused on fixing chips and gaps in damaged teeth. As it name suggests, your dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material on a broken tooth that bonds to it permanently, restoring a tooth’s shape and form.
