Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because of some cosmetic issue such as discoloration, a chip or crack, or some other imperfection? Finding a dentist providing cosmetic dentistry services is one way to restore that confidence. Dr. Ann Kelley and the team at Kingsgate Dental in Kirkland, Washington, offer various cosmetic dental treatments, including teeth whitening, veneers, and cosmetic dental bonding.
Cosmetic dentistry is not just for the adults in the family. It can also be an excellent solution for the children and teens in your family. Let’s look at some ways cosmetic dentistry can benefit your entire family.
Your smile will very often be the first thing others notice about you. People are more likely to gravitate toward you if you have a bright, healthy, and attractive smile. While this is important for adults when it comes to interviews, dates, and professional/social relationships, for teenagers, it can often seem like the world is crashing down if they are not happy with their smile and think that their friends or kids at school will make fun of or judge them. Seeking the appropriate cosmetic treatment to correct your family’s smiles will result in restored confidence and could even lead to more positive social and professional interactions.
If you view cosmetic dental treatment as purely superficial, you may be surprised to learn that these treatments have broad-reaching effects on oral health. Clear aligners, for instance, will straighten, align, and close gaps between your teeth. While this will provide an obvious aesthetic improvement, it will also make it much more difficult for plaque and oral bacteria to collect between teeth. This will lead to healthier teeth, gums, and better breath.
A widely used cosmetic solution for restoring fractured teeth is a dental crown. Because fractured teeth can make chewing difficult, many patients seek out treatment. Cosmetic dental crowns will not only restore the tooth’s appearance but also restore the lost functionality. Chewing will be easier, and your tooth will be protected so that no further fracture can occur, which could threaten the health of the inner portions of the tooth.
