Cosmetic dentistry is a specific area of dental care in which patients are able to achieve a more beautiful smile. While everyone should focus on the health of their smile to ensure they are free from problems such as cavities and periodontal disease, they should also consider the appearance of their smiles. When patients are not happy with the way their smile looks, they often lose confidence and experience lower self-esteem.
Cosmetic dentistry may include procedures such as:
- Dental bridges, implants, or dentures for tooth replacement
- Porcelain veneers or composite resin bonding for disguising imperfections or breakage
- Teeth whitening for brightening the enamel of the teeth quickly and easily
- Composite resin fillings for areas of decay, providing a safe and aesthetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings
- Dental crowns for protecting, strengthening, and covering weak teeth
Dr. Carl McMillan of the Holistic Dental Centers in the Cary and Cornelius areas want patients to know that repairing the aesthetic issues with the smile can be affordable and easily obtainable. No longer is cosmetic dentistry just a treatment for the Hollywood elite. Patients are welcome to ask their dentists about the benefits of cosmetic work and understand how it can be used to achieve better aesthetics and confidence. Many patients will only need a single procedure while some will benefit from full mouth rehabilitation – a combination of treatments to make dramatic changes to the way the smile looks and functions. Patients can book an appointment during which they can consult with our team of professionals and learn about all the ways in which their smile can be enhanced.
If you want to find out more, contact our team at Cary or Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers and book an appointment. Dr. Carl McMillan can walk patients through the process of full mouth rehabilitation or a simple procedure that can be done to make a subtle change.
