Cosmetic Dentistry – Treatment or Trend?

Cosmetic Dentistry – Option and Necessity

Many believe cosmetic dentistry to be a trend rather than a treatment; an option rather than a necessity.

People with good oral health but unattractive teeth choose cosmetic dentistry as an option, but many times cosmetic dentistry is a necessity as an integral part of restoring an unhealthy oral condition to a healthy one.

The Good Health of Cosmetic Dentistry

As we grow older, many of us realize that past poor oral hygiene habits or new physical ailments can lead to an unhealthy oral condition.  The obvious first step for an unhealthy mouth is to receive good general dentistry comprised of regular checkups, cleanings and fillings for cavities.  More specialized general dentistry can include periodontal dentistry and root canal.

While general dentistry can treat the underlying problem of bad oral health, it is cosmetic dentistry that is necessary to now fix the tooth or gum damage resulting from bad oral health.

The Good Look of Cosmetic Dentistry

The appearance of damaged teeth and gums from poor oral hygiene habits, smoking, alcohol or disease can be changed with the magic of cosmetic dentistry.

Many oral health conditions can lead to loose or crooked teeth or teeth that have fallen out.  Restorative cosmetic dentistry is available for any and all of the problems that result from poor oral health. These conditions need more complex cosmetic dentistry.

Simpler cosmetic dentistry can be as minimal as having the old fashioned dark fillings for cavities removed and replaced with porcelain or composite fillings to match the color of your teeth or lightening the color of your teeth with tooth whitening procedures.
