Do you look at your reflection and see issues with your smile? If so, Dr. Grant Burdick of Designed Smiles in Brea, CA encourages you to consider the many benefits of cosmetic dentistry, and how they can be used to make you enjoy what you see in the mirror.
The word cosmetic is falling out of fashion, and is being misunderstood in many ways. After all, a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Burdick doesn’t look only at the appearance of the smile. Instead, as your dentist in Brea, he looks first at the overall health and wellness of your teeth and gums.
Only once he can build on the foundation of your healthy smile will he begin to work with you as a cosmetic dentist, offering such treatments as:
That is just a partial list of the options available, but it does illustrate that the benefits of cosmetic dentistry extend well beyond esthetics. How? Just consider those options in that list above. In it we see porcelain veneers. These are thin and remarkably strong shells of porcelain that are bonded to teeth in order to overcome issues like gaps, misalignment, uneven sizes, deep discoloration and chips or cracks. A tooth that is cracked is vulnerable, but when a strong veneer is bonded to it, that tooth is restored.
We might look at something like Invisalign and see similar benefits. Though these clear aligners are meant to straighten the teeth, they will also fix the bite and prevent a long list of problems from developing. So, the benefits of cosmetic dentistry are never just esthetic.
You should also remember that Dr. Burdick will also consider your overall oral health before doing any cosmetic work. That means that one of the benefits of cosmetic dentistry is that it is built on a foundation of healthy teeth and gums. Of course, another of the key benefits of cosmetic dentistry is how it can make you look younger, healthier, and more confident. Clearly, this means you will want to explore your options soon.
