Thanks to advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we can improve our teeth and smiles with treatments that are quick and painless. Cosmetic dentistry has dramatically grown in popularity among patients of all ages because we all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Cosmetic Dentistry includes Dental crowns, dental veneers, Invisalign (invisible braces), teeth whitening, and gingivectomy.
Who benefits from cosmetic dentistry?
Not everyone is blessed with perfect beautiful teeth. Many movie stars started their career with crooked teeth, short teeth, gummy smiles, or gaps between their front teeth. We would never know about this by looking at how beautiful they look when they smile. Hollywood’s secret to a beautiful smile is cosmetic dentistry. Celebrities that had cosmetic dentistry to enhance their appearance are Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Morgan Freeman, Ben Affleck, Demi Moore, Ed Helms, Zac Effron, Jim Carrey, Cheryl Cole, Celine Dion, Victoria Beckham, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff, Christie Brinkley, Chris Rock, Catherine Zeta Jones, Mike Tyson, 50 Cent, Keith Urban. Through the dramatic & powerful transformation of cosmetic dentistry, their perfectly beautiful smiles light up the silver screens and our hearts. They did not let the imperfections of their teeth hold them back from their dream of making it big in Hollywood. Cosmetic Dentistry amplified what they already have inside: Talent, charisma, personality. For an everyday person with discolored crooked teeth, it can be embarrassing to smile when you meet someone, you’re trying to impress for the first time. It can be a new friend, a potential girlfriend or boyfriend or even a new boss. Society tends to see people with crooked teeth, discolored teeth or gap between teeth as being untrustworthy, low education or low socioeconomic status. It is unfortunate, but it is the reality we live in. Nice clothes can make people look smart, handsome, beautiful, sophisticated, and important. We tend to see people with beautiful smiles as handsome, beautiful, educated, sophisticated and important.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
If you have dark, chipped, gapped, or misaligned teeth, cosmetic dentistry can dramatically restore and improve your appearance. A cosmetic Dentist can help restore or improve the appearance of your teeth and smile by changing the color, position, shape, size and alignment of your teeth. Crooked teeth, short teeth, gummy smiles, or gaps between their front teeth can be treated in a variety of ways depending on the severity and how wide the gaps are between your teeth. In patients with mild crooked teeth or dark teeth, dental crowns and dental veneers can give you a beautiful ideal smile in 2 dental visits. With patients that have severely crooked teeth or extremely wide gaps between teeth, Invisalign (ortho) may be needed to close the gaps and align the teeth. Some patients may only need dental crowns or dental veneers, while others may need a combination of Invisalign and dental veneers or crowns for the ideal result. For patients with a “gummy smile” smile, teeth appear short due to an excess amount of gingiva (gum) showing when they smile. “Gummy smile” can be corrected with gingivectomy. Gingivectomy is the removal of the excess amount of gingival tissue (gum) covering the teeth that make them appear short. In patients that have well-aligned yellow or dark teeth, teeth whitening can brighten the teeth.
Patients with dark, chipped, gapped, or misaligned teeth are very self-conscious about their teeth when smiling or laughing. These patients tend to smile without showing their teeth, cover their mouth when they smile, or take photos where they never smile to avoid showing their teeth. The thought that you are not allowed to truly express your joy and laughter around people for fear of embarrassment can eat away at your self-confidence. Self-confidence is very important for a person’s mental health and sense of self-worth. When you lack self-confidence, you tend to doubt yourself. Self-confidence is extremely crucial during the transition years into adulthood, and it carries into adulthood. Just as nice clothes can make people look smart, handsome, beautiful, sophisticated, and important. Having a nice, beautiful smile allows you to truly express your joy, laughter, and personality without restraints. People are the social mirrors that reflect how we see ourselves, to some extent. How we see ourselves when we look into the mirror also affects how we interact with people. A confident person laughing and smiling when meeting people creates an impression of a strong high value individual in people’s mind. Cosmetic dentistry has dramatically grown in popularity among patients of all ages because we all realize that having a bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. If you could have more confidence when you smile, would you want it? You can shed your insecurities and smile with confidence.
As with the natural progression of life, things tend to wear and break down as we age and get older. This is only partly true. Why? It is true that people’s teeth get darker as they age. Aging is a natural process, but it does not mean that all older people have dark, chipped, or broken teeth. A young person can be perceived to be older than he/she is when the teeth are darker. Just as an older person can look younger when their teeth are bright and healthy. You can have beautiful healthy teeth regardless of your age. Just as dyeing your hair improves your appearance and people’s perception of your age, the appearance of teeth has a similar effect on how people perceive your age. As a society and people, it is obvious that looks are important. Age can be interpreted as a state of mind, but your appearance shapes your state of mind every day. Otherwise, we would not need nice clothes, makeup, hair dye, and self-grooming products, cameras, and mirrors. When we look younger, we feel younger. Having a healthy beautiful smile makes you look younger.
Improve Your Overall Health
Esthetic results of Cosmetic dentistry and good oral health are not mutually exclusive, they can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Cosmetic Dentistry is not limited to improving your appearance and confidence. Crooked teeth and crowded teeth trap food, collect tartar and plaque and are harder to keep clean, as a result, they contribute to gingivitis, gum disease and tooth loss. When teeth are straight, it is easier to brush and keep them clean. Clean and healthy teeth & gum result in few dental problems that can lead to gum disease that is linked to heart disease, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your overall oral health. One of the best ways to ensure that your teeth, crowns, veneers, and oral health are in good health is scheduling routine dental exams and dental cleaning to ensure a healthy smile and to ensure crowns and dental veneers are not compromised by dental decays (cavities).
Improve Quality of Life
Dental problems can negatively impact your diet and the types of food you can eat. Having one missing or chipped tooth makes it difficult to eat certain types of foods. And having several teeth missing can dramatically impact the way you eat and the types of food you could eat. An uneven or improper bite can prevent you from chewing properly that can lead to digestion issues. Although cosmetic dentistry is known for changing appearances of teeth, it also changes the function of teeth to improve your chewing ability, so you can enjoy your favorite foods without limitations.
Prevent Further Damage & Expensive dental procedures
What most people do not know is that cosmetic dentistry can prevent future damage by not only correcting the appearance of your teeth but also the alignment of your teeth. Well aligned teeth function properly and do not cause teeth to chip or break, which will save you from bigger problems down the road and can save you significant amounts of money.
Quicker, Shorter Recovery Time & Long Lasting Results
One of the key advantages of cosmetic dentistry is that it can dramatically transform your smile and the results are more immediate with shorter recovery time and long-lasting results. Crooked, dark, misaligned teeth can be improved with dental crowns and dental veneers to give you a beautiful smile in just 2 dental visits. Cosmetic dentistry requires less recovery time, so you can eat or drink within a few even hours.
