is Cosmetic Dentistry?
When we think of perfect teeth we often think of Hollywood stars,
not realizing they may owe more to their dentists than they do
to nature. Although some cosmetic changes are expensive, newer
techniques, which enable dentists to bond tooth-colored materials
to natural enamel, make it easier to change the appearance of
your teeth. And as small and unimportant as some of these changes
may seem to many of us, they can be a boost to self-esteem for
someone whose teeth may have been the reason they held back a
Many cosmetic choices still call
for specially skilled hands. The traditional caps and crowns demand
a high level of expertise both from the dentist and skilled craftspeople
in dental laboratories—and are expensive. Yet some methods
perfected over the past decade or so have made it possible for
family dentists to make noticeable changes in a patient's look
without great cost.
In some cases, simple bonding with a toothlike material can close
up gaps with no need to drill the natural teeth. Some people have
teeth that have turned color through the years, maybe because
of foods they eat or health changes. In-office bleaching systems
used by dentists can quickly restore a whiter look, with no risk
to the patient, at a cost of a few hundred dollars.
Front teeth that are deeply discolored
from childhood illness or conditions inherited at birth, that
have become chipped or fractured or just worn down, can be changed.
Often they don't require the more expensive caps and crowns. Today,
dentists can fabricate porcelain veneers (or shells) that are
bonded over the front of teeth. The dentist will remove a little
of the tooth's enamel with this choice and bond this thin shell
onto the front of the tooth.
Although many more cosmetic choices
are available today, the main reason the profession is there is
to help prevent and treat dental disease. Yet, as health care
workers know, a personal sense of well-being results from meeting
a combination of physical and emotional needs. If something as
small as a gap in the front of your teeth has made you feel uneasy
for many years, there may be affordable options at the hands of
your family dentist.
