A vibrant, healthy smile not only is good for your oral health, it's contagious. The more you smile, the more others around you tend to smile as well. In order to get a healthy smile, it's important to keep it... well, healthy! Daily care of your gums and teeth is a must for any set of pearly whites. But even then, sometimes your teeth need professional dental work.
Cosmetic dentistry truly works wonders for thousands of men and women who want their teeth to look and feel their very best. A dentist can perform a number of cosmetic procedures, including whitening, bonding, tooth reshaping, dental implants, crowns, bonds, veneers, and caps. Of those options, teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the United States. The process makes your enamel whiter via either laser treatment or bleaches. Under the right conditions, a cosmetic dentist can make your teeth 10 times whiter! Every year, Americans spend more than $1.4 billion on teeth-whitening products.
Dental implants are another popular cosmetic dental option. Unfortunately, many people lose teeth at some point in their lifetimes, either due to bad hygiene, injury, or other factors. Dental implants are simple metal screws (typically made out of titanium) that are embedded into the jaw bone, which will naturally heal, allowing the implant to secure itself. Once the implant is fully embedded, the synthetic tooth is attached to the end to replace the missing tooth. Dental implants can last for life and have a success rate of 98%! Now that's a healthy smile.
There are other options to choose from, and many dentists perform and even specialize in cosmetic dental work. For whatever oral problem ails you, there's a dentist happy to give you a full mouth of teeth, shining and healthy. Beautiful dental work is just a click away.
