A perfect smile can be achieved with the use of various cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are focused on improving the quality and appearance of the teeth and mouth, with the added benefit of improving oral health and function.
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, over six million cosmetic dentistry procedures are performed in the United States each year. This includes everything from teeth whitening, braces, and bonding to veneers and implants. Its popularity continues to grow, as people desire to improve their smiles, taking them from unacceptable to dazzlingly beautiful.
Let’s talk about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are now being performed with great success, using more durable materials. Materials used in cosmetic treatments such as braces, crowns and veneers, and dental implants are more durable and long-lasting, boosting the return on investment. Porcelain, ceramic, and titanium are just some of the materials that make up dental prosthetics commonly used in cosmetic dentistry.
Clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional metal braces for straightening teeth. The plastic is removable and the color is transparent, which makes it a preference of teens and adults for getting straighter teeth. Over 12 million Americans have used Invisalign to straighten their teeth, and every year, more and more patients are choosing Invisalign.
There are many advances in pain management that allow patients to be comfortable with the idea of being in a dentist’s chair for the duration of a cosmetic procedure. Intravenous sedation (IV) is a possible alternative to anesthesia, which carries greater risks. Knowing that your procedure will be painless is an excellent reason to pursue cosmetic dentistry.
People want a dazzling smile, especially in the age of social media, where everyone wants to share themselves through pictures and videos. There is a desire to look better in pictures and videos, and to present oneself in the best way possible, which plays a part in driving up the popularity of cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentists can make teeth whiter, change their shape and appearance, and correct any gaps and crookedness, which results in a very attractive, social media-worthy smile. Studies show that cosmetic dentistry can help to boost your self-confidence and improve your mental health, as a result.
People with beautiful smiles and confidence leave a positive impression on everyone they meet, whether it’s a love interest or a work client. A beautiful smile not only makes you look and feel good and healthy, it can actually open prospects and get you the things you desire in life.
