Cosmetic dentistry plays a very important role in society today. We are bombarded by perfect bodies, perfect hair and perfect smiles. Women feel inadequate if they have smaller than average breasts and seek out breast implant surgery. Men feel less manly for a variety of other reasons, including sexual, which they feel can be corrected by cosmetic surgery. So of course it has been only a matter of time when we would nearly all feel inadequate about our less-than-gleaming teeth.
People can visit a cosmetic dentist like via dental before they make any decision about undergoing a procedure. Cosmetic dentists will usually have visual representations of how patients will look after a procedure, and can talk to them about the specifics of each treatment to see which one they feel comfortable with or feel is necessary.
High-quality cosmetic dental procedures promote oral hygiene, as well as a better appearance. Professionals who are trained in cosmetic dentistry can perform all of the necessary procedures to ensure individuals look as natural as possible and have the smiles that they have been hoping for.
Smile makeovers have become one of those things on most of our “to-do” lists, whether or not we can afford them. It is something we strive and long for.
Dental work performed by a regular dentist is essential work or preventative dentistry. That performed by a cosmetic dentist is for aesthetic reasons. If one was to have an accident and lose a tooth or have significant tooth loss through decay or aging, however, the reconstruction dentistry needed could very well fall into either category.
For a total smile makeover and to take the best advantage of going to all the trouble of having your teeth straightened, whitened and looking marvelous – a good cosmetic dental surgeon will work hand-in-hand with a maxo-oral facial surgeon. He will see that any jaw alignment problems are corrected, over-bites or under-bites and look at the basic skeletal bone structure of the entire mouth and jaw. Believe it or not, problems in this arena can cause problems from the severe pain of trigeminal neuralgia to muscle spasms and teeth clenching.
