Enhance Your Smile, Enhance Your Life By Dr. Christine L. Koval

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the art of enhancing – rather than changing – a person’s appearance through various techniques applied to the teeth and gums. For some people, it’s an option to restore health to decayed or flawed teeth. For others, a younger and more attractive smile is a major component in achieving overall self-improvement and greater self-confidence.

Tell me the truth – isn’t cosmetic dentistry really only about appearance?

You may be surprised to learn that cosmetic dentistry is not only done for cosmetic purposes. A poor bite can affect joints, facial muscles and even posture. I have helped many patients correct their bites, enhance chewing and digestion, and correct speech issues. Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about vanity – by enhancing your smile, you can truly enhance your life.

What are some of the aesthetic elements that must be considered in cosmetic dentistry?

Success in the demanding field of aesthetic dentistry depends on enhancing shade, dimension and shape of natural teeth. This requires a practitioner with creativity, talent and basic intuition. Not only do I consider nuances like the translucency of the edges of the teeth and the appearance of the gumline, I can even improve the shape of the lips with the emergence profile of the teeth.

Will I still look like me after cosmetic dentistry?

It’s not unusual for my patients to report that their friends and colleagues are very complimentary about their new appearance but can’t always put a finger on what is different about them. They are asked, “You look so much more relaxed – have you changed your weight, do you have a new hair style?” Whatever the comments are, the bottom line is that the changes are always youthful and look natural!
