A nice smile can lighten up a conversation or even a whole room of people, and cosmetic dentistry can get you that smile! To help you understand cosmetic dentistry and why you should consider it, we’ve prepared a Q&A about it. Read on to learn all about cosmetic dentistry with us at Potomac Woods Family Dental Care!
A cosmetic dentist does cosmetic dentistry. This type of dentist is similar to a general dentist, but there’s a big difference. The cosmetic dentist has the same kind of training as the general dentist, plus additional experience in advanced cosmetic dentistry. This means the cosmetic dentist may be able to perform more advanced cosmetic procedures. A general dentist may be able to provide simple teeth whitening procedures, but that’s about it.
What is the difference between cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry?
If you need some dental work done or if you think you may have a cavity, then you’ll want general dentistry from a general dentist. General dentistry can also help you maintain the health of your teeth. However, if you want your teeth to look amazing, you’ll want cosmetic dentistry from a cosmetic dentist. Cosmetic dentistry is about making your teeth look more natural in appearance, as well as whiter and brighter.
The general difference between the two types of dentistry is that general dentistry is mostly about the health of your teeth, while cosmetic dentistry is mostly about the look of your teeth.
What does cosmetic dentistry include?
Cosmetic dentistry includes procedures that help patients achieve nicer, brighter smiles. These procedures can fix issues like stained, gapped, or misaligned teeth. Some patients want a lot of work done, so these patients get a combination of procedures. Other patients may need both cosmetic work and restorative work done.
Restorative dentistry can be complementary to cosmetic dentistry! This is why many cosmetic dentists perform both cosmetic and restorative procedures. An example of a restorative procedure is dental implants.
Here are some other examples of cosmetic dentistry:
– Invisalign clear braces
– Teeth whitening
– Dental bonding
– Combinations of treatments
– And more!
Combinations of treatments are often called “smile makeovers.” The results of these makeovers can be dramatic in many cases!
What is the best cosmetic dental procedure?
The best procedure for you is the one that will have the biggest effect on your smile! If you have stained teeth, then teeth whitening might have the biggest effect, or if you’re missing a tooth, a dental implant could have a major effect.
Some procedures are more common and popular than others. For example, teeth whitening is really popular. It’s so popular because so many patients benefit from it and appreciate having a whiter, brighter smile. The procedure is typically quick and simple too. Invisalign clear braces are really common since they work like regular braces, but they’re practically invisible! Teenagers really like Invisalign, but many adults like it just as much.
