Brighten your smile and rejuvenate your visage with cosmetic dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry, offered at Dream Smiles Specialist Centre, are treatments expressly used to improve the appearance of your teeth and visage. Typically, these treatments have no health benefits outside of making your teeth look better.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Every dental practice is different. Some general dental practices will sell their restorative work as cosmetic, and others won’t offer cosmetic dentistry because they don’t believe it’s a necessary part of their practice.
Injectables are used to plump lips, and smooth crows’ feet and laugh lines. Injectables are a great way to complement whitening treatments or restorative work.
Dream Smiles offer two kinds of teeth whitening: Zoom! and veneers. We use Zoom! Teeth Whitening for our in-office and take home whitening options. It is one of the most tried and tested whitening solutions out there, and a favourite of dentists and patients alike. Veneers are another solution for whiter, healthier-looking teeth. While Zoom! will only whiten your teeth, veneers can conceal minor chips, cracks and other imperfections.
Is cosmetic dentistry worth it?
Cosmetic dentistry is ideal for those who are looking to brighten their smile. As long as you have realistic expectations of treatment outcomes. Most dentists, the Dream Smiles team included, will often discourage patients opting for Hollywood white teeth. Because no one’s teeth are naturally that white. It’s an odd look. However, patients who do want that unnaturally coloured teeth, can achieve it with either Zoom! or veneers.
If you are the sort of person who doesn’t maintain a good at-home oral hygiene routine, then it may not be worth getting Zoom! teeth whitening. The results of Zoom! last between 9 and 12 months if you take care of your oral health.
At the end of the day, cosmetic dentistry is a personal choice, and you should consult with a dentist to see if you are an ideal candidate. To find out more about cosmetic dentistry, or to request an appointment, please contact us today.
