Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Why is cosmetic dentistry important?

Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth so you can feel confident about your smile. When you’re happy with the way your teeth look, you feel free to laugh and have more confidence in general.

By improving the appearance of your teeth to reflect your health and personality, you develop an intangible but positive attitude that affects the way your present yourself socially and on the job.

Although your appearance is important to Dr. Jennings, cosmetic dentistry often does more than improving your smile. The procedures used for cosmetic purposes also have functional benefits as they can correct dental problems and strengthen damaged teeth.

What procedures do dentists use for cosmetic purposes?

Dr. Jennings offers a variety of procedures to boost your smile and improve the appearance of your teeth, including:

Teeth whitening

In-office, professional teeth whitening produces significant results while protecting your delicate gums and soft tissues from the bleach used.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers cover the outside of your tooth, where they correct issues such as stained, cracked, or crooked teeth. They can also hide gaps between teeth.

Crowns

Dental crowns are often used to strengthen and restore a damaged tooth. They’re also great for cosmetic improvements because they cover misshapen, discolored, or chipped teeth.

Bridges

A dental bridge makes a dramatic improvement in your smile by replacing missing teeth. Bridges are customized to look like your existing teeth.

White fillings

When you don’t like the appearance of silver fillings, which darken over time, Dr. Jennings can replace them with composite resin fillings that match the color of your natural teeth.

What is a smile makeover?

Dr. Jennings may recommend a smile makeover when you need more than one cosmetic or restorative dental procedure to improve your teeth.

After a thorough dental exam and X-rays, you’ll discuss the cosmetic changes you’d like with Dr. Jennings, as well as any dental repairs you may need. Then he develops a plan to achieve all your dental changes using as few procedures as possible.

Depending on the number of procedures you need, your smile makeover may call for doing several things during one visit, or you may need a step-by-step process to complete all your dental care over several visits.
