How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Boost Your Self Confidence

How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Boost Your Self Confidence

Team Cosmetic Dentistry

The studies point to an unfortunate reality. Dental disorders such as missing teeth, and untreated tooth decay lead to reduced self-esteem in adolescents and teens. Moreover, among adult populations, the Centers for Disease Control reports that missing teeth can lead to speech problems, restricted social contact, and lead to poor diet leading to obesity or weight loss, all of which may impact self-confidence. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile, helping to boost your self-confidence.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments and Conditions They Correct

Cosmetic dentistry often offers patients more than just an aesthetic improvement. Many cosmetic dental treatments also offer valuable oral health benefits. Common problems that cosmetic dentistry can fix include.

Missing Teeth

Patients do not have to feel ashamed of missing teeth thanks to treatments such as dentures,  dental bridges, and dental implants. All three of these treatments offer both cosmetic and restorative benefits.  

Of the three options for replacing missing teeth, dental implants offer the most oral health benefits. They not only replace missing teeth but in doing so reduce your risk of further tooth loss. Dental implants stabilize existing teeth and preserve the jawbone to prevent changes to your facial appearance including a sunken mouth. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple consecutive missing teeth, or an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. 

Yellow, Stained, Discolored Teeth

For those embarrassed to smile due to tooth staining or yellowing, cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, dental veneers, or dental crowns can help you feel more confident when smiling. Whitening, dental veneers, and dental crowns are all non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that can give you a brighter, whiter smile.

Cracked or Chipped Teeth

If cracked or chipped teeth make you feel insecure, several cosmetic treatments can help.  Cosmetic bonding can correct small to moderate chips in teeth. Dental veneers can correct teeth of uneven lengths. Dental crowns can cover cracked or severely chipped teeth.
