When thinking about the different areas of dentistry, many people view cosmetic dentistry in a less favorable manner than something like general or restorative dentistry. This is unfortunate because cosmetic does not mean only about the esthetics. Patients of Corey Mazer, DDS at Old Milton Dental in Alpharetta, GA learn that they benefit from cosmetic dentistry in many ways. If it is part of their dental plan, it is likely that it will do more than just give them an attractive smile.
As a preferred dentist in Alpharetta, offering cosmetic dentistry alongside general and restorative treatments, we encourage our patients to take another look at the idea of cosmetic dentistry. After all, it can easily serve multiple purposes. Take something as universally well received and popular as dental veneers. Often called “instant orthodontics” and used as a key part of a smile makeover, they are thin and remarkably strong shells of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth by your cosmetic dentist.
However, it is easy to see how you might benefit from cosmetic dentistry with something like a veneer because it also stabilizes and strengthens any tooth to which it is bonded. So, the chipped or cracked tooth that is concealed by the veneer is now left far less compromised and is given added strength thanks to the cosmetic improvement and bonding.
This is not the only example of how you might benefit from cosmetic dentistry. After all, if you are undergoing a custom plan for smile enhancement, it may involve something like a realignment of your bite. This does much more than straighten your teeth, though, and is meant to improve the bite to protect the teeth and the jaw. You might opt for a dental implant to fill in a gap in your smile, but this restores function to the lost tooth even as it improves the appearance of your grin.
There are many ways you will benefit from cosmetic dentistry, and one of the most profound is that it has to begin with optimal oral health. In other words, a key benefit of cosmetic dentistry is that we do not begin the cosmetic treatments until we are sure your teeth and gums are as fit and healthy as possible.
