Cosmetic Dentistry Defined

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your teeth. Some of the most common services include brightening, whitening, and straightening teeth. In some cases, cosmetic and restorative dentistry is combined, such as with dental implants, that improve the appearance and functioning of your mouth.

Before you can get cosmetic dental treatment, the dentist will want to make sure that your teeth are healthy and don't need additional care. This means that you will start with an exam and cleaning. If your teeth require treatments such as fillings, root canals, or crowns, those will need to be done prior to moving forward with your cosmetic dental treatments. By doing these first, you can be sure that your teeth will be at their healthiest, which will provide you with the best outcome.

Why Should You See a Cosmetic Dentist?

Many times, people decide to visit a cosmetic dentist to enhance their smile prior to a special event such as a wedding or school dance. Cosmetic dental treatments are beneficial to anyone that wants to improve their smile- no matter what the occasion. If you have issues such as cracked, crooked, uneven, or discolored teeth, you may benefit from cosmetic dental treatment.

If you have cosmetic issues with your teeth, such as those mentioned above, your confidence may suffer. However, cosmetic dental treatments can fix these issues, giving you back your radiant smile and therefore, your confidence.

Cosmetic Dentistry Benefits

As we mentioned, cosmetic issues with your teeth can affect your confidence and self-esteem. In addition, these issues can negatively impact your success in school and work, personal relationships, and even your mental health. In fact, one study revealed that an individual's perception of the appearance of their smile had a significant impact on their social/psychological well-being, which can be seen in their actions and can have an effect on their self-confidence.

Cosmetic dental treatments enhance an individual's appearance, helping them smile more and improving their self-confidence.

Additionally, cosmetic dentistry addresses decay and overcrowding- which can mean improved oral health. Some of the cosmetic procedures can strengthen teeth and prevent further deterioration. Other treatments, such as bonding, can decrease the sensitivity of teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

There are several different procedures that fall under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry and, depending on your goals, you may have one or several of these procedures. Visit Smoke Rise Dental today to discuss your options with Dr. Moeti and the team. We will be happy to examine your mouth and help you determine what options are best for your needs.

Some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer include:

Teeth Whitening

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. After all, everyone wants to have a bright, white smile to show off to your friends and family, social media profiles, at work, and so much more. A white smile indicates that you are a healthy, confident person- especially since those who have radiant smiles tend to show them off.

While it's true that you can visit your local pharmacy and get a whitening kit, you will not see the same results you see in our office. The whitening provided in a dental office goes much deeper than the at-home kits. Whitening offered in a dental office will not only remove surface stains, but will also address discoloration that starts inside your tooth.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that hides chipped teeth that do not require additional treatment. Typically, bonding can be done in one visit. Material will be created to restore the appearance of chipped teeth and can sometimes be used to close gaps, creating a more even smile.

Dental bonding requires the use of adhesive to attach the restorative material to your enamel. Since it can stain and may require replacement from time to time, bonding is typically not a long-term solution. However, it does cost much less than veneers and provides patients with the option to upgrade to porcelain veneers in the future, when finances allow.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are long-term alternative to bonding. They are custom-made tooth coverings and require more than one visit because the dentist will need to send molds to a lab so that they can create the veneers. However, once they are placed on your teeth, you can expect them to last for a long time without any issues.

In fact, porcelain veneers are stain resistant. Therefore, if you decide that you want porcelain veneers, you may want to first have your teeth whitened because the dentist will match the veneers to the color of the other teeth. If you wait until after you get your veneers to whiten your teeth, the color will not match.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is both a restorative and a cosmetic dental treatment. This is because they restore the functionality of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. It fills in the space left by a missing tooth. It feels like a real tooth because it's attached to your jawbone. Since the crown is designed to mimic the color and size of your teeth, it blends right in with the rest of your natural teeth.

Some patients experience dental issues that require tooth extraction. If you find yourself in this situation, discuss the option of having an implant put in to replace the missing tooth. This will restore your smile, help you avoid alignment issues due to the missing tooth, and give you a natural look without getting dentures or a partial.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an alternative to wire braces. It is a process that uses clear trays to straighten your teeth. Adults who want to improve their smiles without anyone knowing often choose to use this treatment. There are several benefits of clear aligners over wire braces:

  • No special tools required for brushing flossing
  • No risk of getting poked by wires in your mouth
  • Less discomfort during and after the procedure
  • Invisible trays can be worn all day
  • No restrictions when it comes to eating/drinking

If you have crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, spacing issues, or problems with your bite, talk to Dr. Moeti and the team at Smoke Rise Dental about Invisalign as an option to straighten your smile without traditional wire braces.

Getting Ready for Your Consultation

Before you take the next step to improve the appearance of your smile, it's important that you put priority on your oral health. It's important to have healthy teeth/gums because if you don't, it can negatively impact the procedure, as well as the results.

It's also important that you take the time to research your options and to make a financial plan ahead of time. You must consider your budget, lifestyle, and cosmetic goals before you seek treatment.

When you come in for your consultation, feel free to ask any questions that you might have. The consultation will give you the time to ask questions about your treatment options, what treatment would be best for you, the results you should expect from treatment, and so much more. By asking questions and taking notes during the consultation, you will be able to decide the best treatment options.

Smile Makeover

Our smile makeover is a complete package that will restore your smile in a variety of ways, including veneers or bonding, whitening, laser treatment, Invisalign, and other cosmetic dental procedures you may need.

Another option is full-mouth rehabilitation, which is a procedure that uses restorative dental treatments to improve the functioning of your mouth. Depending on your situation, you may need both restorative and cosmetic treatments. Be sure to discuss your goals for your smile with Dr. Moeti and the team. We will be able to guide you in choosing the best treatment options.
