Cosmetic Dentistry: Not Just About Bright, White Smiles
The two words 'cosmetic dentistry' will probably bring to mind images of perfectly aligned, white teeth, forming the picture of the ideal Hollywood smile.
However, cosmetic dentistry is much more than it seems to be on the surface, transforming teeth in the Eastern Suburbs to be the best they can, functionally and aesthetically.
Treatments such as teeth whitening are largely for aesthetics, allowing patients with discoloured teeth to show off a new, vibrant cosmetic smile.
But other cosmetic dentistry treatments such as veneers , crowns and bridges can work to restore the function of your teeth, helping to foster a healthy mouth.
Why is this you might ask? Veneers work to fix teeth that are worn down, chipped, broken, have large gaps and even those that are misaligned.
This improvement alone can help to make chewing much easier and also reduce the chance of decay, which can emerge in gaps and crevasses between teeth.
Dental crowns also work in a similar way, providing a tooth-shaped cap customised to fit over your entire damaged tooth. This can restore chips and also strengthen weak, badly decayed teeth, giving you fully functioning teeth that are also aesthetically natural.
In the case of multiple missing teeth, dental bridges can be used to fill the gap, giving you full function of your teeth.
Gaps that are left untreated can lead to a number of dental issues such as infection and gum disease, so paying a visit to your dentist can help to address your oral health before it worsens and creates bigger problems, leading to emergency treatment.
