Teeth, and overall oral health, are often misunderstood. The impact that good oral hygiene has on a lifetime of use isn’t spelled out in a single event, but moment-to-moment across a lifetime. If you have a small rock in your shoe, you remove it ASAP. If you have a chipped tooth, the tendency is to ignore it. Not exactly straightforward thinking.

The expectation that patients have is that cosmetic dentistry will make their smile look better. This is a blanket under which several benefits wait to be revealed. When you get the smile had in mind, you gain:

#1 A Reflection You Appreciate

Many of the patients we treat like their smile alright; they just want it to be better. They’ve envisioned what their smile could look like, and that is what they expect to see. When they look in the mirror (we love this part!), patients are often taken back by just how much their face has improved, even from a small change in teeth.

#2 Better Oral Health

Cosmetic treatments do not directly improve oral health. What research has shown is that people who obtain their dream smile then want to do everything they can to support it for life. They brush and floss regularly, and may even rinse their mouth throughout the day. They see the dentist twice a year and follow any advice they are given to care for their smile. The goal may be to keep teeth looking good, but all this additional TLC is also going to have a positive effect on health. Win-win!

#3 A Better Life!

Can a better life stem from bringing out the best in the smile? Research points to the affirmative. In one study, researchers discovered that employers might lean more toward hiring a person with an attractive smile than not, so long as they were also qualified. People with an attractive smile are regarded as being friendlier, more successful, and even wealthy. These perceptions pay off in both professional and social situations.

The term cosmetic dentist comes across like a plastic surgeon. There is an unnecessary connotation of vanity and artificial pride attached.

The look of a mouth has a lot more to do with the health than you may think. Braces, for example, are seen as a vital health concern, and not cosmetic. That is because it is understood that straight teeth offer more support than crooked ones.

The same applies across many of the other cosmetic procedures. This list will itemize what each is and why you would invest in them.
