Your smile is one of your most valuable assets. A beautiful, well-balanced smile can make you look good on the outside as well as feel good on the inside. Since few of us were born with perfect teeth, patients can rely on the advancements of cosmetic dentistry to help them achieve a more confident smile.
Are you hesitant to take advantage of a smile makeover? Although many people aren’t happy with the appearance of their smile, a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that 82% of respondents said it’s the dentist who initiates a dialogue about cosmetic dentistry. (Only 26% said that patients start the conversation.) Patients often don’t ask about cosmetic options because they:
- Feel nervous or uncomfortable to bring it up
- Don’t realize it’s an option
- Believe it will be too expensive
Let’s change that. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, here are a few simple facts that can make you feel more confident in your decision.
#1 Cosmetic dentistry can be used for one tooth or multiple teeth. Regardless of just how embarrassed you are of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. If you have teeth that are chipped, discolored, gapped or missing, there are a full range of options that can cover or correct your imperfections.
#2 Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t have to be expensive. Don’t assume that a smile makeover will break the bank. There are some simple, low cost procedures in cosmetic dentistry can that make a big difference in your smile appearance with minimal sacrifice to your budget. Dental bonding and professional teeth whitening are perfect examples!
#3 Cosmetic dentistry can make you look younger. Forget the expensive and painful plastic surgery procedures. If you want to really turn back the hands of time, consider a smile makeover from your dentist.
#4 Cosmetic dentistry can produce quick results. For patients who want dramatic improvements in the shortest amount of time, porcelain veneers may be the way to go. In just 2-3 painless dental visits, you can instantly walk away with a straight, white and attractive smile.
#5 Cosmetic dentistry isn’t painful. While most cosmetic dentistry procedures are non-invasive, sedation dentistry can be used alongside any treatment of your choice to ensure a comfortable and relaxed experience in the dental chair. The majority of cosmetic dentistry procedures also require no downtime or special after-care.
