Cosmetic Dentistry 101

What do you think of when you think of cosmetic dentistry? You probably think of teeth whitening but cosmetic dentistry is a lot more than just teeth whitening. With the help of modern technology, cosmetic dentists can fix cracked and chipped teeth with veneers, replace missing teeth while preserving the jawbone, preserve teeth with tooth-colored fillings and much more.

Cosmetic dentistry is always becoming less and less invasive. On top of that, it’s quicker and more effective than it’s ever been. People who have missing teeth now have access to revolutionary dental implants, which dramatically improve the way dentists fix missing and broken teeth. There are procedures like Invisalign, which give you a straighter smile just like braces without anyone knowing.

It probably goes without saying, but teeth are important to us. We all care about how our teeth look. No one wants to get caught with food in his or her teeth. Furthermore, it’s easy to be embarrassed by stained or uneven teeth. Teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are great ways to enhance stained or uneven teeth. It’s not just for movie stars—people all over the North Salt Lake area are getting veneers to look younger and to have a smile they can’t wait to show off.

Missing teeth may keep you from eating some your favorite foods or make you self-conscious about your smile. With dental implants, people can go back to eating their favorite foods and smiling without hesitation. Moreover, dental implants use titanium that can actually bond to the jawbone, which means the implant and the jawbone are stronger as a result.

If you ask anyone that has dealt with the anxiety or embarrassment of a stained or flawed smile, they’ll tell you that confidence in your appearance is almost priceless. A missing tooth or stained teeth can shatter that confidence, but cosmetic dentistry can restore it.

Getting a smile makeover with porcelain veneers or fixing a missing tooth with a dental implant can have a positive impact on your life. If you’d like more information about cosmetic dentistry or specific procedures, contact us today.
