Dental aesthetics focus on the appearance of a person’s smile, including alignment and discoloration. This type of treatment would be recommended at Essence of Dentistry for several reasons, but it usually comes down to a desire to improve a patient’s confidence. Even a subtle change, such as whitening the teeth or straightening the bite with Invisalign, can significantly impact someone’s life. An improved smile can often give patients a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem.
While aesthetic treatments tend to focus on the teeth and gums, they can also impact a patient's general health and well-being by improving the attractiveness of the face. For example, orthodontic treatment can enhance the jaw's position and improve oral health. At Essence of Dentistry, our dentists offer top-notch cosmetic dental services in Redmond, WA, that exceeds the expectations of our patients in terms of quality and effectiveness.
Pros of Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Your smile is a big part of how you feel about yourself, so it makes sense that a boost in your appearance can make you feel like you just got a big promotion at work or won a million dollars trying your luck at the lottery. As a result, people who have undergone cosmetic dentistry treatments often feel more confident and outgoing than before.
Patients with chipped, stained, or otherwise damaged teeth can significantly benefit from cosmetic dental treatments such as veneers and teeth whitening. These procedures can hide their less-than-perfect smiles and help them feel more confident when smiling in public.
As one of the first lines of defense against harmful oral bacteria, your teeth must stay strong and resilient for years to come. Even if you’re meticulous about oral hygiene and visit the dentist for regular cleanings, your enamel can still crack and chip over time. Fortunately, cosmetic dental treatments like crowns and bonding can help restore damaged teeth function while enhancing your smile’s appearance.
Types of Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Sometimes patients need a dental crown to repair damage to a tooth’s structure after an injury or cavity, or if the patient prefers to cover the tooth to improve its appearance. Dental crowns are shaped to fit over the visible portion of the affected tooth like a cap and are made from solid materials designed to last many years with proper care.
A dental implant restores the appearance and function of a tooth that has been lost due to decay, infection, or injury. The implant replaces the tooth’s root and is covered with a replacement crown that looks like a natural tooth. Dental implants can last a lifetime if you practice good oral hygiene habits.
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells covering your natural teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are excellent for correcting multiple issues, like chips, cracks, or discolorations. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly and match your smile.
