A Few Ways Houston Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help You Smile Again

Smile Design Studios team pink background.

A great smile can impact your confidence greatly. Having an imperfect smile can cause low self-esteem, stress, and anxiety. Research shows that having a great smile is not only linked to high amounts of self-confidence but also people who have nice smiles are happier. Cosmetic dentistry is used to improve smiles, but what exactly is cosmetic dentistry and how exactly can it help you?

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Our Houston area based Cosmetic Dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that looks to improve the overall appearance of your teeth but not necessarily the function of your teeth, gums, or bite. It’s aimed at creating a positive change to your smile with primary focuses on improving dental aesthetics. While cosmetic dentistry may not necessarily improve the functionality of your teeth but they offer a wide range of benefits.

Although cosmetic dentistry is not recognized by The American Dental Association as a formal specialty area of dentistry, many dentists still promote themselves as cosmetic dentist due to receiving training in one or more areas of dentistry that are considered cosmetic in nature.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help You

Cosmetic dentistry can help improve your smile and overall confidence in a variety of ways. There are a variety of options available that cater to your specific needs, here’s a list of a few:

Veneers
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry describes veneers as a thin piece of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience compared to natural tooth enamel. Veneers are perfect for people whose teeth are stained, chipped, or have any gaps.
Invisalign
Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners which is an orthodontic treatment device. They are a clear transparent plastic form of braces used to straighten and adjust teeth.
Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a covering for a tooth usually used when a tooth is discolored, broken or cracked, to cover and support a tooth with a large filling, and many other reasons. Bridges are used to fill gaps in your smile when crowns or veneers cannot be utilized. They are permanent false teeth that are fixed to neighboring teeth to take the place of missing teeth.
Zoom Whitening
Zoom whitening is a bleaching process used to lighten discoloration of the teeth, specifically the enamel and dentin. The process requires the usage of the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, which accelerates the bleaching process. After the procedure is over you’ll receive a touch-up kit to use at home that includes custom whitening trays.

Get Confident In Your Smile

These are just a few ways in which cosmetic dentistry can improve your confidence and overall quality of life.
