For patients who struggle with the appearance of their teeth in their daily lives, the benefits of cosmetic dentistry may seem obvious, but cosmetic dentistry does far more than improve appearances. There are a variety of common cosmetic dental problems that can be fixed by our skilled cosmetic dentist, ranging from purely aesthetic concerns to serious oral health issues.
Functional Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Problems like missing teeth and teeth that are badly damaged by chips or cracks can affect far more than your looks. Broken, chipped or cracked teeth are more susceptible to decay, but cosmetic dental treatments that improve the tooth’s appearance can also protect the tooth from infection and disease. With treatments including porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and color-matched fillings, your cosmetic dentist can give your confidence a boost while protecting your oral health.
Missing teeth pose another problem that is not just about appearances. In fact, a missing tooth can compromise the health of your entire jaw, putting every other tooth at risk for loss. With dental implants, your cosmetic dentist can restore the function of your bite while the natural process of osseointegration can strengthen your jaw and protect adjacent teeth from falling out.
