Novato Dentist Describes Ways in Which Cosmetic Dentistry Helps Maintain Good Oral Health

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jun 25, 2013

A beautiful smile really makes a great first impression on everyone you meet. All too often, though, we see patients at our Novato Dentist Office who are not pleased with the appearance of their smile. This can cause them to feel self-conscious and awkward when meeting new people in business and social settings.

Fortunately, cosmetic dental treatments and services give hope to many people who thought they were destined to live with a smile that is less than perfect. Beyond aesthetics, an important feature of cosmetic dentistry is the health benefits that it provides. Dental concerns that are perceived to be only cosmetic in nature can often have a serious impact on your general and oral health.

You already know that cracked or incorrectly aligned teeth are unattractive. But these problems can also lead to more serious oral health problems like periodontal disease, jaw pain, and difficulty chewing. Today a cosmetic dentist can easily correct these types of oral health concerns and get you on the road to restoring your oral health and beautiful smile through the use of cosmetic dentistry.

Solutions through Cosmetic Dentistry

When you visit the Novato Dentist Office because of a cosmetic dental concern, we work with you to determine the best solution for you. We correct potentially harmful dental issues while giving you a smile that looks great and boosts your self confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry offers several solutions for perfecting your smile:

  • Dental Implants function as a replacement for missing teeth and give support to prevent shifting teeth and jaw collapse.
  • Porcelain Veneers cover discolored teeth and provide a solution for cosmetic dental issues such as uneven spacing, crooked teeth, and gaps between teeth.
  • Porcelain Crowns provide a strong and aesthetically pleasing answer for patients who have teeth that are cracked or chipped.
  • Tooth-colored fillings prevent further decay and are natural in appearance, unlike mercury fillings.
  • Tooth bonding corrects the appearance of broken, misaligned, or crooked teeth.

In addition to correcting potential dental problems and ensuring your overall oral health, we provide a wide range of cosmetic dental services from basic teeth whitening to more complex procedures such as dental implants. Treatments available with general dentistry combined with cosmetic dentistry provide a solution for every smile.
