What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do For Your Smile
posted: Feb. 08, 2021.
A more confident smile is everything. Cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve that confidence.
While children are usually the ones that smile more often (about 400 times a day), why should they have all the fun? It’s no surprise that the more smiling we do the more positive emotions we experience. Of course, even the happiest people only smile around 40-50 times a day, while the rest of us only smile about 20 times. One way to increase the amount of smiling you do daily is by correcting flaws and improving the appearance of your smile. Our Colorado Springs, CO, dentist Dr. Sheldon Golomb can do just that through cosmetic dentistry.
Boost Oral Health
If you are proud of your smile, chances are fairly good that you’re going to do your part to keep it looking its best. This means that you’ll probably spend more time brushing and flossing every day to maintain your results. You’ll also be more likely to visit us every six months for checkups and professional cleanings, which means fewer cavities and a reduced risk for gum disease.
Improve Your Social Life
If you found yourself embarrassed by your smile, then you probably didn’t spend a lot of time going out or socializing. You may even find yourself feeling less-than-confident at work; however, having a beautiful smile can help you find that renewed sense of confidence that you need to (finally) ask for that promotion or raise, to ask your crush out on a date, or to rekindle friendships that you’ve left by the wayside because you felt too self-conscious to go out.
Chipped or worn teeth can also weaken over time, which can lead to further fracturing and damage. This is why it’s important to speak with your dentist about ways to restore your smile. By getting cosmetic dentistry such as veneers or bonding, we can help to reinforce and even strengthen teeth to prevent further weakening or damage in the future.
Straighten Your Smile
If you always assumed that you needed to wear braces to straighten your smile, think again. While cosmetic dentistry won’t be able to correct severely crooked or misaligned teeth, our Colorado Springs, CO, dental team can use dental veneers, bonding, and contouring to reshape and resize teeth while also making smiles appear straighter. If you are an adult who has a gap between your teeth or a slightly crooked smile, veneers may be an alternative to braces.
