Modern cosmetic dentistry is constantly inventing new ways to improve peoples’ smiles. However, not many people fully appreciate how much their cosmetic dentist can do to improve their smile and oral health.
At One Smile Oral Care, we are dedicated to improving your smile and for this reason, we employ various cosmetic dentistry procedures that help improve the health and appearance of your teeth. Here are some things you may not know about cosmetic dentistry in Kings Hill.
Cosmetic dentistry is not only about aesthetics
Quite a few people believe that cosmetic dentistry is unnecessary, since it concentrates on the cosmetic aspects of teeth. For some individuals, cosmetic dentistry is very expensive, therefore not essential. This could is not necessarily true. Modern cosmetic dentistry treatments are increasingly affordable and offer many health benefits compared to the standard cosmetic ones.
Chipped, cracked and damaged teeth, are more susceptible to decay. Eventually, if they are left untreated the risk for gum disease increases dramatically. Fixing problem teeth with fillings, dental veneers or dental implants greatly reduces the risk gum disease and other serious oral health problems.
At the same time, misaligned teeth can cause severe headaches. Not to mention that they are very difficult to clean, accumulating dental plaque and bacteria over time. Straight teeth are easier to clean and remain healthy for longer.
Dental veneers are a viable alternative to braces
People with moderately crooked or gapped teeth may think that braces are the only solution to their problem. However, dental veneers are often viable alternatives to braces. This is because they are minimally invasive, considerably less expensive and can be fixed in as little as one dental appointment. Unlike braces, dental veneers do not require adjustments and are entirely painless.
Dental implants are completed in two stages
Most people considering dental implants don’t know that the procedure involves two steps. During the implant operation, the dental implants are fixed into the jawbone with the aid of titanium posts. These are fixed into the jawbone and will eventually support the dental implants, which can take the form of crowns, bridges or even dentures.
