What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Technically, cosmetic dentistry refers to the procedures patients elect to undergo to improve their smile and overall appearance. For some patients, it’s strictly about beauty, and for others, they look to cosmetic procedures to repair their teeth and gums that may have been damaged from accidents or other problems. No matter what the reason is, though, those who have undergone cosmetic dentistry procedures end up with a better-looking smile.
Who are candidates for cosmetic dentistry?
Basically, anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile is a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, but the most common patients are those who want to repair damaged teeth. However, people with the following can also benefit from these procedures:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Damage from cavities
- Discolored teeth
How much do cosmetic dentistry procedures cost?
Like anything to enhance appearance, it costs money. Some procedures are expensive, but depending on the extent of the procedure (individual tooth vs. entire smile) the costs can be relatively inexpensive. However, the results are often so rewarding that they make the price worth it.
