A beautiful smile can brighten someone’s day. By the same token, a blemished smile can cause a person to withdraw. Our smile says a lot about us, whether we want it to or not. The good news is, if your smile is less than appealing, cosmetic dentistry can enhance it and make it stunning.
Cosmetic Dental Procedures
There are many cosmetic dental procedures available to help create a beautiful smile and restore dental health. Missing or damaged teeth can compromise your oral health. When your oral health is not at its best, your general health can be negatively affected.
Examples of cosmetic dentistry treatments include porcelain veneers, dental bridges, composite fillings, dental bonding and teeth whitening. All of these procedures help to enhance your smile. When a prosthodontist delivers these treatments, there’s a new level of expertise added.
The Importance of Aesthetic Detail
If you take a close look at your natural teeth, you will see that teeth have shading. It can be very subtle for some people, and for others, it can be very pronounced. You will also notice that your front teeth are whiter than back teeth. Your teeth tend to get a little darker the further back you go.
The prosthodontist is trained to pick up on these little details. Here’s the reason why. Imagine you get a bridge to replace your canine tooth. If the dentist does not pay attention to the color of your existing canines, as well as the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, you could end up with an artificial tooth that is too light or too dark. You’d be surprised how big a difference just a shade or two off of a color can make.
Learning to pick up on nuances in color are just a small part of the intensive training prosthodontists receive. In fact, they receive intensive training on all aspects in the area of cosmetic dentistry. This specialized training makes them the true cosmetic dentists.
