Cosmetic Dentistry: What Is It? When Do I Need to See a Cosmetic Dentist?

From the outside, cosmic procedures seem unnecessary, and that includes cosmetic dentistry as well. But, this is far from the case.

Issues with your appearance can greatly impact your self-esteem and how you interact with people, so many of these cosmetic dental procedures can offer you a boost in confidence which can greatly improve your quality of life. Not only that, but a lot of cosmic dental services can improve the health of your teeth as well.

If you’re wondering if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, here are some signs that might make you want to book a consultation:

Stained Teeth

Teeth staining is a natural occurrence that takes place over time. As you get older, your teeth will inevitably change color, especially as a result of lifestyle factors such as:

  • Eating "dyed" foods
  • Smoking
  • Not brushing your teeth regularly
  • Tartar buildup, etc.

Staining can become too much to remove on your own, so if you feel self-conscious about your teeth’ color or visible spots, a cosmetic dentist can help you lift these stains off the tooth enamel.

Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are not just a problem for someone’s appearance. They can affect the way you eat and can be quite difficult to clean properly. 

Teeth naturally tend to shift over time, so it is possible to notice your teeth becoming increasingly more crooked over time. A cosmetic dentist will not only help straighten your teeth but help you prevent more serious conditions down the line as well. For example, people with crooked teeth are more likely to develop gum disease because they are not able to thoroughly clean their teeth.

Uneven Teeth

Uneven teeth often change the appearance of your smile, but in some cases, they can affect your bite or even make you more prone to injury if one of the teeth protrudes too much and hits the inside of the lips.

The cosmetic dentist can help you address this problem as well, in various ways, depending on your specific case. For instance, the cosmetic dentist can file down a tooth that is too long, and bring its size closer or identical to the ones around it.

Your Smile Is Simply Not Making You Happy

You don’t need a medical reason to visit a cosmetic dentist. If you are not happy with the appearance of your smile and are self-conscious about it, this can directly impact your daily life.

A cosmetic dentist can help restore that confidence and make you want to smile all the time!
