While general dentistry focuses on your teeth and gums’ health, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the way your teeth look and feel.
The cosmetic dentists at Corpus Christi Advanced Dentistry offer the following procedures:
Cosmetic dentistry is focused on repairing and enhancing your smile.
Both cosmetic dentists and general dentists receive the same initial training. Your cosmetic dentist can still do X-rays, deep cleanings, and fill cavities, and some more complex procedures like adding bridges or crowns.
The most significant difference between cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry is the former’s focus on aesthetics. Aesthetics is the philosophy or science of beauty. It’s all about what appeals to the eye.
Cosmetic dentists work to provide their patients with results that are visually appealing as well as restorative.
While both cosmetic and general dentists fill cavities, your cosmetic dentist is concerned with ensuring that the composite color of your filling matches the color of the surrounding teeth. It’s as much about the beauty of your smile as it is your ability to chew and speak clearly.
Patients looking to improve their appearance through their smile look to a cosmetic dentist to bring their best face forward. The most common of the many reasons to see a cosmetic dentist are:
Discolored or stained teeth are one of the most common concerns in cosmetic dentistry. Over time, certain foods and drinks, habits, and medication can contribute to yellowed or stained teeth. Cosmetic dentists offer professional whitening treatments that drastically improve the color and brightness of your teeth.
A missing tooth is more than just a hole in your smile. The space left by a missing tooth affects your bite and can cause your jawbone to shrink from disuse.
A missing tooth often causes your remaining teeth to shift to fill the empty space. This causes new problems, like affecting your ability to speak clearly and allowing bacteria to build up. Dental implants can fix these problems before they start, significantly improving your oral health.
Our teeth become more vulnerable to cracks and chips as we get older. Beyond the pain or susceptibility to further problems, these cracks and chips can be unsightly and quickly deepen and cause decay.
Veneers, crowns, and dental bonding are all solutions for chipped or broken teeth. With your dentist, you can find the right solution to repair your smile.
Regardless of what’s keeping you from putting your best smile forward, Corpus Christi Advanced Dentistry will work with you to repair and refresh your smile. Call or book an appointment online today and bring yourself one step closer to a dazzling new smile.
