Are there any benefits of cosmetic dentistry beyond the obvious esthetic improvements? Absolutely, and patients of Sean Visger at Trail Ridge Dental in Longmont, CO understand that his services as a cosmetic dentist bring more than just an attractive smile.
While most people head to our office with questions about cosmetic dentistry because they want a more attractive smile, they are often delighted to learn about the other benefits of cosmetic dentistry that include:
It requires your teeth and gums to be in top condition – Dr. Visger may be a fantastic dentist in Longmont, offering a long list of cosmetic dentistry services, but before that, he is a dentist who will get your teeth and gums in the healthiest shape possible. Rather than applying some esthetic improvements to unhealthy teeth or gums, we’ll work with you to get any issues such as decay or even the loss of adult teeth taken care of, and then give you a complete smile transformation through cosmetic dentistry.
It can be both cosmetic and restorative – When you work with us, we will assess your wishes and your needs. We may recommend something like porcelain veneers or bonding to repair a chipped or broken tooth. Though this makes a cosmetic repair, it also strengthens and restores that tooth. You will be able to use it to bite and chew, and it will be protected from further damage or decay. Clearly, that has to rate as one of the best benefits of cosmetic dentistry!
It can address more than many realize – Simple cosmetic dentistry solutions can often handle a large array of problems. One cosmetic solution known as dental veneers can actually address misaligned, gapped, uneven, broken or deeply stained teeth. Clearly, among the benefits of cosmetic dentistry is that it can be a much easier “fix” than you realize.
It improves your self-confidence – Did you know that many people who visit us for cosmetic dentistry actually have perfectly healthy teeth and gums, but hide them when they grin because they are self-conscious? Over time, this erodes your confidence and comfort, making your social life and your overall quality of life much less than it should be.
These are but a few of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, and we would encourage you to get in touch to book a consultation.
