At Marietta Smile Gallery, we know that a lot of our patients come to us without any significant underlying issues. Sometimes people just need a routine cleaning and exam to ensure that their dental health is in great condition. However, even when patients do not have a specific need for any major dental work, we can all think of at least one thing that we would like to do to improve the appearance of our smiles.
It is often a fairly small issue, but when you see it as a flaw, it can hinder you from being comfortable in a variety of situations. If you feel that your teeth are discolored, gapped, irregularly shaped, or chipped, you may think twice before flashing a smile at a new client or friend. If issues with your smile have been keeping you from showing your best face, call today to schedule a consultation.
Understanding Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is a wide umbrella of different procedures and approaches that are geared toward improving the appearance of your smile. While the goal of these procedures is to give you a smile that you can be proud of, they often have positive impacts on your oral health as well. Cosmetic dentistry can correct a variety of different issues through the utilization of different techniques. These approaches often include teeth whitening, veneers or lumineers, teeth straightening with Invisalign, bonding, and gum height correction.
While patients do not generally need or want all of these procedures, it is important to understand that you have a wide variety of tools at your disposal. When we work with our patients, we make sure to know exactly what they see as the issue and what they would like to have corrected. Then we can work with you to work up a complete treatment plan.
Benefits of Treatment
It should go without saying that cosmetic dentistry can help improve the appearance of your smile, but it never fails to surprise our patients when they see the finished product. A lot of time and energy can go into hiding or trying to disguise your smile, and the sudden ability to be able to let your guard down and share a perfect smile with the world can do wonders.
Another benefit of cosmetic dentistry is the change to your own self-confidence. Many of our patients have explained situations where they did not feel comfortable because of their appearance, so they held themselves back from trying something new. A beautiful smile can help to reverse this trend, and you may find that you have some talents that were hiding just beneath the surface.
In addition to helping with your self-confidence and appearance, patients also find that after completing cosmetic dentistry, that they follow quickly with improvements in their own careers. This may be due to the fact that they can more easily express themselves in situations, and that they are more likely to be noticed by their peers and supervisors.
Finally, while cosmetic dentistry has a number of benefits that improve the appearance of your smile, there is also a correlation with improving your overall oral health. Some procedures add an additional layer of protection to your teeth or help to eliminate areas where bacteria can hang out. Additionally, the improved relationship with our friendly staff can help to reduce any fears about coming to the dentist.
It is difficult to express just how transformative cosmetic dentistry can be for our patients. If you have been trying to hide your smile, call Marietta Smile Gallery today to schedule your consultation and see the difference we can make for you.
