The field of dentistry that addresses aesthetic issues with your oral and dental health, cosmetic dentistry covers a large number of different services. These include but are definitely not limited to teeth whitening, Invisalign aligners, porcelain veneers and even crowns and dental implants. Essentially, if it helps your smile look more beautiful, then it falls under the heading of cosmetic dentistry. A lot of our patients in Staten Island, NY have been improving their smiles with Drs. Galligan & Villa Dental Studio in a number of different ways.
Why Do People Choose Cosmetic Dentistry?
Some never got braces when they were in middle school or high school, and so now they are choosing Invisalign aligners so that they can experience the joy of a perfectly aligned smile without years of wearing unattractive braces.
Some of our patients have chipped or damaged teeth that may or may not be slightly out of alignment as well. For these patients, we usually recommend porcelain veneers, as they can cover stains and damage while making teeth look straight and even.
Whether you only wish you had slightly whiter teeth or you have a number of problems with your smile, the cosmetic dentistry services we provide in Staten Island can help you achieve your goals for your smile.
Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Dentistry
Essentially, there are almost no cons at all when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. Some procedures and services may not be covered by all dental insurance policies, and so they may cost some money. However, when you consider how much confidence these procedures can give you, the cost is almost always justifiable.
