Your calendar reminds you that a social event is fast approaching. The decision you make about what to wear is followed by a number of other considerations.
What about dentistry?
More specifically cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dental procedures have a dual benefit. They can improve your oral health plus they can transform your appearance depending on the treatment you choose.
Your top priority
Maintaining your oral health is essential. Cosmetic dentistry provides you a few procedures that can help assure that your teeth and gums are a priority.
If your teeth and gums are unhealthy that condition will negatively affect your smile. A few cosmetic dentistry treatments lead with an impact on your oral health followed by an appearance upgrade.
Tooth-colored dental fillings can be custom-designed to match your surrounding teeth. More important is the filling’s ability to restore your tooth structure that’s been damaged by decay.
Inlays and onlays provide a similar benefit. The treatment can match the natural shade of your teeth in addition to restoring a larger area of tooth damage or decay that a standard dental filling cannot.
Treatment with an advantage
No doubt cosmetic dentistry is chosen for its ability to improve your appearance. Your choice depends on that alongside the specific procedure’s health benefit if applicable.
Teeth whitening is among the top cosmetic procedures. A professional, in-office whitening treatment is fast and can brighten your teeth up to 10 shades of whiteness in one appointment.
Botox is another cosmetic procedure that can support your facial features and the appearance of your smile. The treatment uses dermal fillers to relax the muscles in your lips and around your mouth.
The health benefits include improving your ability to chew and smile with more confidence. It can also be used to treat issues associated with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and teeth grinding (bruxism).
These represent a sampling of your cosmetic dentistry options. Ask your Knoxville dentist about cosmetic dental treatment and the benefits to your health, appearance, and of course, your social calendar.
