How Cosmetic Dentistry Gives You a Healthier Smile

Cosmetic dentistry isn't solely concerned with appearance, but also with making overall improvements to health. But how exactly does an aesthetically improved smile ensure overall good health? The answer lies in cosmetic dental treatments’ durability and restorative function.

Durability - Advances in the field of cosmetic dentistry offer  attractive, tooth-colored treatments that last just as long as their traditional metal counter-parts. Porcelain composites used for the treatment of dental decay – in the way of crowns and white fillings – are able to protect teeth for as long as amalgam fillings and metal-on-porcelain crowns.  Patients can feel confident their newly corrected smile will stay with them for a long time with proper care.

Function - Cosmetic treatments also restore functionality to a patient's bite so they can exert full and even force while biting and chewing.  With damaged or missing teeth, patients are often forced to chew on one side of their mouths to avoid discomfort. This creates uneven wear and tear on teeth and puts extra pressure on healthy structures. Damaged teeth also restrict your biting capabilities, as decayed teeth are already weak, and missing teeth take away what you need to bite into and chew your favorite meal.

Cosmetic dental treatments like crowns, veneers, dental implants, and fixed bridges, protect damaged teeth, fill in gaps created by missing teeth, restore oral function, and help your smile appear healthy.
