The first thing people notice when they meet someone new is their smile. If you’re not happy with your smile and would like to improve the first impression you give, a cosmetic dentist can help.
Nearly everyone thinks that having good teeth is important to a person’s overall appearance and 40% of people say that teeth are the first thing they notice about their work colleagues. The state of one’s mouth is also correlated with job success. Those with attractive teeth get more job offers while those with misaligned, stained or missing teeth are unfairly thought of as less successful or untrustworthy. The same prejudices occur in the dating arena.
Cosmetic dentistry is meant to improve the appearance and function teeth and give people a much-needed confidence boost.
Same Day Crowns
A crown is a cap that covers the tooth to conceal chipped or broken teeth. Crowns can be put on the same day for an instant improvement in appearance. Using in-house X-ray and computer-aided diagnostics, an impression of the teeth can be made during the appointment. Scott W. Grant, DMD notes that the finished crowns are fitted on the same occasion, so there’s no need for a second appointment.
Teeth can also be lightened several shades brighter to remove staining and reveal a sparkling smile. The teeth are painted with a whitening bleach that is then activated by a light beam. The whole treatment can be completed in an hour, so people can get it done on their lunch break.
White fillings are an ideal treatment for tooth decay. The composite or resin fillings can patch holes in teeth unobtrusively. Don’t like the idea of a mouth full of silver? Unlike amalgams, white fillings contain no ‘quicksilver’ or mercury so they’re safer too. White fillings can be matched to the natural color of the teeth so no one will notice the fillings.
Crowns, teeth whitening, white fillings and other cosmetic dental enhancements can correct any blemishes fast and help patients find their smile again.
