Spending time on social media these days, it’s hard not to ask yourself if you’re living your best life. Scrolling through the #bestlife tag and others like it, on Instagram or Twitter often brings photos of delicious food, gym transformations, or even people living in vans and traveling across the United States. All these beautiful people, supposedly living their best life, can make you wonder what your best life looks like. Are you traveling abroad, relaxing on a beach? Are you finally starting that new business venture? And of course you’re going to the gym consistently and eating right? Regardless of what your best life looks like, perhaps you can start with your best smile, especially if you’ve recently become embarrassed by stains.
In order to get you out there, representing those pearly whites, cosmetic dentistry can help.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is for those who want to smile their best smile. While general dentistry focuses on providing patients with preventive care in order to protect against tooth decay and gum disease, cosmetic dentistry offers patients several treatment options which will correct various pain points you have with your teeth. Not only can having beautiful teeth help you change the way you see yourself, it can also help you to feel more confident in the decisions you make.
What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?
Cosmetic dentistry can fix just about any problems you might have with your smile, including stains, chips, and crooked teeth. Professional teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures out there, and can help to make your teeth up to 8 shades whiter. Available in-office or at home, this procedure works by using a chemical solution capable of dissolving various staining agents trapped in our enamel which give our teeth a yellowish tint. When combined with both in-office and at home treatments, results can be much more dramatic and long-lasting. In one way or another, cosmetic dentistry can help patients with just about about any issue. Even those with missing teeth can get a second chance.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Replace Teeth?
Dental implants are a time-tested method for replacing missing teeth that is both effective and long-lasting. In fact, many patients who receive dental implants have them for life. Dental implants have two main components, the titanium implant, and the ceramic crown. They work because of a phenomenon known as osseointegration. After the titanium implant is inserted into the jaw bone, it begins to fuse with bone and muscle tissue, functioning much like a nature tooth root. When the healing process is complete, we attach a custom-crafted ceramic crown to the implant. Because the crown is constructed from medical-grade ceramic, it is resistant to staining and chipping. Plus, it perfectly matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
