Dentistry Options: What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Sometimes we find that the routine check-ups with our dentist just don’t meet our aesthetic needs. We may want to adjust a thing or two, improve our look, or something else.

It may be that your insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic dentistry, or that your dentist doesn’t do the kind of work you’re looking for. We’re going go over some of your cosmetic dentistry options so you know what’s available and how to move forward in improving your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Generally speaking, cosmetic dentistry is any work done that doesn’t deal directly with oral health, dealing instead with the aesthetic appeal and look of your teeth.

Cosmetic dentistryis an extremely common practice that helps people everywhere improve how they feel about their smile and their teeth. The benefit of feeling good about yourself and your smile can have effects that ripple out into the rest of your life.

Whitening does come in different degrees. You can talk with Dr. Saguin about getting an in-office bleach, or you can speak with her about whitening kits that you can bring home to use over time.

Tooth Bonding

Bonding is an option for those people who have chipped or cracked teeth and want to correct them. Bonding involves a plastic material which is hardened to compliment the misshapen or cracked parts of a person’s tooth.

The process is relatively quick, although it can be a little pricey.

Implants for Missing Teeth

This is an essential one for many people who find themselves with a missing tooth. Depending on where the missing tooth is located in your mouth, this could have huge consequences on your self-esteem and confidence. In many cases, people want to have their tooth replace right away.

Luckily, dental implants are available for those situations where you lose a tooth. It’s reassuring to know that you aren’t out of luck when you do lose a tooth.
