When we think about cosmetic dentistry we often limit our vision to those purely esthetic “fixes”. However, did you ever consider the ways that cosmetic dentistry can improve your health? By health we are talking about general health, oral health and even your emotional well-being. Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio in Staten Island, NY provide many cosmetic dentistry treatments, and some of them can easily work to help you enjoy better health.
Consider a Dentist in Staten Island
The perfect smile is one that is properly aligned, free of decay and disease and visually appealing. That is a lot to consider, and the very first step that our cosmetic dentistry specialist takes when working with you on a treatment plan is to look at your oral health. And it is right here that we see how cosmetic dentistry can improve your health. After all, science has proven that there are irrefutable links between healthy teeth and gums and the development or prevention of certain health issues. When you keep your teeth and gums in top shape, your health also improves.
So, the patient who visits our cosmetic dentist is going to begin enjoying improved health because no cosmetic work is done until essential restorative or preventative measures are complete.
These may actually include some cosmetic treatments. For example, the patient who has caries filled in front teeth will need dental bonding to restore the tooth fully. The patient with deeply stained teeth not resistant to whitening, or teeth with cracks and chips may obtain bonding or veneers to address the issues, but those steps also strengthen and restore the teeth to full use.
The other ways that cosmetic dentistry can improve your health include improving the bite with aligners, replacing missing teeth with implants, dentures or bridges and considering whether dental crowns are needed.
