Can You Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?
As you read the title of this article, you may already have an answer or opinion to the question it poses. Your answer is probably due to the word “cosmetic”. In our current era, there is a multitude of cosmetic treatments we can use to improve the appearance of our skin, bodies and more. However, cosmetic dentistry is quite a bit different than other cosmetic treatments because it comes with a range of benefits. This is why at Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio in Staten Island, NY, we want our patients to learn how they might benefit from cosmetic dentistry.
As your preferred dentist in Staten Island, we offer preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry solutions, and all with the goal of bringing you optimal oral health and an attractive smile. However, our focus is first on oral health. We want to be sure that your teeth and gums are in the best conditions possible before we “switch hats” and work as your cosmetic dentist.
The Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry
So, if you can benefit from cosmetic dentistry beyond the esthetic improvements to your smile, what are those benefits? Let’s first consider what we offer our patients in the form of cosmetic dentistry:
In each of those treatment options, there are benefits well beyond cosmetic improvements. Yes, the whitening improves the look of your smile, but it also gives you a boost in self-confidence that makes you smile more, speak freely and feel better about yourself. The veneers can offer restorative benefits as they are bonded to teeth that may be damaged. Cracked and chipped teeth are always compromised, and if you use crowns or veneers to improve how they look, you also ensure they are stabilized and strong.
Invisalign does straighten even a substantially misaligned smile, but it also improves the bite, preventing uneven wear, tooth breakage and conditions like TMJ. Implants fill in gaps in the smile, improving how it looks, but they offer a tremendous list of benefits that include preserving the bite and preventing bone loss. The list can go on and on.
