Cosmetic Dentistry—Beauty and Function

While cosmetic dentistry is known for creating near-perfect smiles, more and more patients are beginning to appreciate the functional aspects that cosmetic treatments offer, as they support a patient’s oral health and provide preventative benefits as well. Given both beauty and function, patients and dental professionals agree that cosmetic dentistry is a worthy investment in the life of one’s smile.

There’s no question—the versatility of cosmetic dentistry allows for simple corrections such as brightening stained teeth, repairing teeth that are misshapen, cracked, or chipped, and replacing silver fillings with tooth-colored resin. In turn, cosmetic procedures also include porcelain veneers, bridgework, and gum revision surgery for a dramatic transformation. Whatever the case, patients discover that a brighter, healthier smile provides an important anti-aging benefit. For instance, age brings two common concerns in regards to one’s smile—discoloration of tooth enamel and tooth erosion.

While patients seek cosmetic dental treatments to advance their smile, dental professionals discover that a greater number of patients are seeking similar treatments for the purpose of anti-aging and function alone. What’s more is that with greater appreciation for their smile, there is a greater emphasis on oral health. This often incorporates attention to nutrition, lifestyle, and other habits.

Sure—on the surface, cosmetic dentistry is more of an art, aiming to enhance a patient’s smile. Yet, as its benefits extend beyond aesthetics, patients and dental professionals are learning that even the subtlest changes produce a dramatic, inside-out effect.
