Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
At Cardinal Park Family Dental Care in Leesburg, VA, we take pride in offering our patients various cosmetic dentistry treatments that can help them to get the smile they want. The benefits of cosmetic dentistry are many, and vary depending on the procedure being undertaken.
We start from the basic belief that every smile is beautiful in its own way. Cosmetic dentistry simply serves to fix the issues that the patient is unhappy with. Even the most problematic smile can reap the benefits of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Teeth whitening is one procedure that many of our patients appreciate, especially if they have tried over the counter whitening treatments that delivered less than stellar results. With professional teeth whitening, you can actually see your teeth whiten by several shades, as opposed to drugstore whitening strips that may offer only a shade or two of whitening, if that.
If your teeth are so badly stained that they will not respond to a whitening treatment, which can be the case with permanent staining due to certain types of antibiotics, porcelain veneers can be a way of correcting the problem. Veneers also work well to hide chipping, crookedness or gapping. They can even change the shape of your teeth.
These are two of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, but there are other treatments that will give you the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. For instance, tooth bonding can also be used to fill in gaps and chips. Although it is not as strong as porcelain veneers, you can still expect to get many years from a bonding treatment. Dental implants are the ultimate cosmetic dentistry treatment. They can replace damaged teeth with titanium screws and dental crowns that, in combination, give you a look and feel that is indistinguishable from healthy, natural teeth.
