Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry. Here we have an entire topic in and of itself, all within the field of dentistry. The term cosmetic dentistry applies to any type of dentistry that is utilized for the purpose of improving the aesthetic appeal of the teeth, mouth, and gums.

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on brightening the teeth and gums, fixing impairments, cracks, chips, contusions on the teeth, etc. Cosmetic dentistry utilizes the advanced technologies of modern-day dental care to improve the teeth themselves. This enables families all across the country to have the best smiles and the healthiest mouths possible.

The mouth is one of the first things we notice in people when we first meet them. And it’s one of the first things that people notice in us too. Why not make the best first impression that we can? Why not wow them with an amazing set of teeth and gums? Why not give them the best impression possible?

When people see a healthy, clean, bright, pleasant mouth, it acts as reassurance. It’s comforting and pleasant. It makes us feel warm and welcome. It’s very un-intimidating. The opposite is true for an unhealthy mouth and teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry is the key to creating the cleanest, healthiest, and most pleasant-looking mouth and teeth possible. We’ll briefly define and describe the main approaches to cosmetic dentistry, so you can decide which avenue would be best for you and your family.

The Primary Approaches to Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is absolutely voluntary, as these methods do not fall under the categories of preventative dentistry or restorative dentistry. But the sheer benefits and the long-term enjoyment that comes with cosmetic dentistry are well-worth the procedures. Let’s read on and take a look at a few of the most common methods used in cosmetic dentistry:

  • Teeth Whitening. Most people have heard of teeth whitening. This simple process involves a thorough cleaning of the teeth, plus a whitening of the teeth with the use of teeth whitener gels and activation lights. Teeth whitening procedures reverse the appearance of stains and yellowing, giving teeth a younger, brighter, fresher, whiter, cleaner look.
  • Dental Veneers. Veneers are a simple, cosmetic dental process by which small, porcelain “veneer” covers are molded to replicate the teeth which they are supposed to cover. Once made, the veneers are attached to those teeth with a special adhesive. Veneers look exactly like the teeth they are meant to cover, except minus any scratches, blemishes, imperfections, missing pieces, chips, stains, etc.
  • Composite Bonding. This approach is usually done entirely in one visit, with the dentist using a special, composite substance to place on and over the affected tooth. If a tooth has experienced a crack, a slight chip, a minor defect, or something of that nature, the application of composite bonding can remedy that. This substance is applied by the dentist, directly to the tooth, and is then dried with the help of a special, dental light.
  • Bridges, Dental Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays. There are several dental approaches that involve both a health benefit and a cosmetic benefit. Bridges, dental caps, inlays, and onlays all serve a health-based purpose for improving the individual’s dental condition, but all of these processes also serve to improve the cosmetic condition of the mouth as well.

 

These are just a few of the methods that dentists use to improve the condition of their patients’ mouths and teeth. The goal here is to create a healthy and pleasant smile, something that brings those around them up and lightens them, not something that intimidates them or which seems unappealing.

Why Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is entirely elective and voluntary. A lot of people ask, “Why cosmetic dentistry?” The reason is that cosmetic dentistry enhances the individual’s teeth and mouth, boosts confidence, and makes individuals more approachable, giving them a new, fresh appearance to greet the world with.

Utilizing cosmetic dentistry can bring about a one-hundred and eighty-degree shift in not only an individual’s appearance, but in their confidence, their sense of self, their courage, their intensity, and their self-image. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry for yourself or a loved one, contact your family dentist today for more information.

Dr. McMurphy and all her staff were extremely polite and attentive. I had seen two dentists at another facility for a filling that fell out. They... told me to “learn to deal with the pain”. Or offered to remove my tooth. I called Dr. McMurphy and her office was able to fit me in same day. She agreed my filling fell out and replaced it same day. Needless to say my pain is completely gone now and I’m so thankful! I will never see another dentist again and my whole family is now scheduled to see her!read more

Great dental practice! Both Dr. McMurphy and Tina were great with my son. My son has issues with texture and hates the gritty polish, so Tina used a... different method which was great! No other hygienist has ever offered that option. I appreciate that they go above and beyond here!read more

I have 60 years of dental history and have had some very good and some not so great dentists. Dr McMurphy is one of the best, if not THE best. I had... a very old crown replaced yesterday because decay had gotten under it. Dr McMurphy's chairside manner was superb, the procedure virtually painless, the temporary crown very satisfactory, and a followup call from her 24 hours later affirmed that she cares! And equally important, she took time to discuss in depth with me what I can do to reduce cavities in the future. I thought I already knew all the strategies, but she gave me some new ideas that make perfect sense. On top of everything else, she has the latest technology , she has a terrific staff, and the prices were very reasonable. My wife and I will be sticking with Dr McMurphy!read more
