Improving Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

As one of the most central (figuratively and literally) components of your facial appearance, your smile plays a very important role. It allows you to express your feelings particularly when you’re happy, and a charming smile is often enough to win over the attention and/or affection of another.

It can be harsh, though, to be born with crooked and unsightly teeth, which could impair your appearance greatly. Fortunately, you can undergo cosmetic dentistry to have your teeth enhanced and made more aesthetically-pleasing.

Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with the appearance of teeth, and it involves various procedures that fix a patient’s smile. While considered a separate field from general dentistry, it isn’t unusual to find general dentists who practice cosmetic procedures. Often, cosmetic dentistry overlaps with orthodontics—a dentistry specialty in improper bites—and some dentists offer both.

What can cosmetic dentistry fix in your smile? If you have stained and/or yellowing teeth, a cosmetic dentist can offer to whiten it. Are your teeth too damaged to look any appealing? Consider having veneers fitted over your teeth, with help from your dentist. Worried about your misaligned and crooked teeth? Your dentist will have dental braces or aligners that you can use to set your teeth into place.

Whatever your aesthetic problem is with your teeth, a cosmetic dentist has the answer for it.
