Why Cosmetic Dentistry Improves your Oral Health

Cosmetic dentists work with patients to give them beautiful smiles and a confidence
boost that will leave them beaming. But these procedures don’t just offer you a
gorgeous grin. Many of them also leave you with a healthier mouth.

Below, we’ve explored how a few common cosmetic dentistry procedures can give you
oral health a boost!

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, providing a strong foundation for
replacement teeth. These implants connect directly to the jawbone, so they serve to
stimulate the jaw and preserve bone density. Since these implants fill in a gap in the
mouth, they reduce the risk of gum disease and protect the surrounding teeth from
cavities. Finally, they can defend against denture-related issues like bacteria build-up,
gum lesions, and facial collapse.

Invisalign Braces

When you have crooked and crowded teeth, you may not be able to reach spaces
where food particles gather, so you will likely experience more cavities. An unusual bite
may also lead to the wearing down of individual teeth, damaged enamel, and difficulty
eating and speaking. Invisalign braces correct these common issues.
Dental Crowns
This tooth-shaped cap is cemented in place over a tooth that is misshapen or
discolored. Dental crowns restore the tooth’s size, shape, appearance, and strength.
They can hold together a weakened tooth or restore a broken one, offering protection
from decay and greater stability.

Dental Bonding
In dental bonding, the dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to a chipped,
fractured, discolored, or decayed tooth. This procedure may be used as a nearly-
invisible tooth filling option, to repair a damaged tooth, or to protect a section of a tooth’s
root that has been exposed by receding gums.

 Added Benefit of Cosmetic Dentistry
Once they receive a cosmetic dental procedure, many patients take better care of their
teeth! After all, when your smile looks like a million bucks, you’re bound to be a little
more mindful about brushing, flossing, and scheduling regular check-ups.
