The Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry

Wondering why cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Neil Salesky is such a great investment? Here are a few of the benefits you’ll enjoy if you choose to get cosmetic dental care.

  • Enhanced self-confidence – First and foremost, cosmetic dentistry helps you feel better about how you look. If you are self-conscious about your smile due to issues like teeth stains, gaps between your teeth, misshapen or uneven teeth, or even slightly crooked teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help you feel great about how you look once again. You’ll be able to smile with confidence, laugh freely, eat your favorite foods, and speak around others without having to feel embarrassed about your smile ever again.
  • More youthful appearance – Not only will you boost your self-confidence, but you can also rejuvenate your appearance with cosmetic dentistry. Worn-down, stained, or misshapen teeth can make you look older than you really are, so covering up and replacing these teeth with cosmetic dental treatments will help you feel younger and more confident about how you look.
  • Options for all budgets – There are many different types of cosmetic dentistry treatments. While some, like veneers, are relatively expensive, other treatments like dental bonding and teeth whitening are much more affordable, and can be a great option if you are on a tight budget. Dr. Neil Salesky will help you explore your choices and pick the right treatment for your needs and your budget.
  • Integrates with other dental treatments – Cosmetic dentistry can be used alongside restorative dentistry treatments like implants and crowns to restore your smile even after it’s been damaged by tooth decay, gum disease, or an oral injury. With a comprehensive smile makeover at Southington Dentistry, you’ll be able to restore both your bite and the natural appearance of your teeth.

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix Oral Health Issues?

No. Cosmetic dentistry is not intended to fix major oral health issues such as tooth decay, infected teeth, gum disease, or dental trauma caused by oral injuries, such as broken or cracked teeth. While cosmetic treatments like veneers can fix minor chips and other cosmetic issues, they cannot fix major oral health issues.

In the same way, cosmetic dentistry is not suitable for restoring your smile and treating orthodontic issues. If you have very crooked or crowded teeth or a major problem with your bite, you will need orthodontic treatment with Invisalign or braces before you can have cosmetic dentistry.

However, just because cosmetic dentistry can’t fix oral health issues doesn’t mean you can’t restore your smile. Instead, you must resolve your oral health problems with other restorative, periodontal, and orthodontic treatments before you can get cosmetic care.

For example, if you’re missing several teeth and have some cavities, Dr. Salesky will need to treat these oral health issues with dental implants and fillings or crowns. Then, once your smile is healthy, you can get further treatment to improve your smile, such as veneers or teeth whitening.
