Learn More about the Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
It is unfortunate that the word “cosmetic” is becoming a term that is associated with purely esthetic or even vanity-oriented decisions. After all, cosmetic dentistry is something that comes with a tremendous amount of benefits in addition to making a smile look its best. Dr. Scott Pope offers a full array of cosmetic dentistry services to patients in our Walnut Creek, CA office and is happy to review how the benefits of cosmetic dentistry can provide so many improvements to oral health and wellness.
What are some of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry? Consider that as a procedure improves the appearance of a “flaw” it might also prevent any future damages or problems.
For example, a popular form of cosmetic dentistry is the use of dental veneers. These are durable shells of porcelain, custom made to be bonded to a tooth. Though the veneer can give an instant fix to a tooth that is stained, too far from its neighbor, or even slightly crooked, it is more than just an esthetic fix. It can also be used to conceal a large crack or chip in a tooth. As it offers this cosmetic fix, it also provides bonding that strengthens that tooth, preventing any future damage, wear, or problems.
Another of the most obvious benefits of cosmetic dentistry is that it includes a huge array of treatments that can deliver quick, reliable, and truly remarkable results. Consider that you can address misaligned teeth, stained and yellowed teeth, unevenly sized or spaced teeth, issues with the gum lines, cracked or chipped teeth, and more through the use of cosmetic dentistry treatments.
A very basic list of options offered in our Walnut Creek, CA office would include:
As you can see from just that brief list, cosmetic dentistry can also be restorative too. If you are considering your smile and wondering how it can be improved, consider the use of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Together, these options will help to make your teeth and gums their healthiest, most functional and best looking possible.
