With so much focus on cosmetic surgery, lasers, facial fillers, skin care and other beauty treatments, there is an important portion of the face that is sometimes forgotton or neglected.
Your teeth and your smile are one of the first things that others notice about you, yet so many people choose to have numerous procedures done to their bodies and ignore their smile.
This may be partially true because many people will avoid going to the dentist unless there is something wrong, and associate pain and discomfort with the visit. However, the health of your teeth and gums is essential in keeping the rest of your body healthy. The cosmetic appearance of your teeth goes hand in hand with the cosmetic appearance of your face.
Dentistry in general has evolved tremendously, and offers many alternatives to make your experience more comfortable and painless, such as sedation, relaxation, music, and TV.
For patients thinking of having facial work, such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, lip augmentation, and chinplantaion, the teeth should always be addressed in conjunction with the consultation. Dental procedures such as veneers and bonding can change the shape of the mouth and also the underlying volume and fullness around the upper and lower lips.
Sometimes whitening the teeth is all it takes to brighten your smile. There are many ways to do this, such as ZOOM whitening, which is a quick in- office procedure. Closing gaps in the teeth can easily be done by bonding the teeth, which is a pain free, easy and quick fix with long term results.
Sometimes patients choose to have dental veneers, which will brighten, straighten, and change your teeth and give you that celebrity smile.
