Do you want to improve your smile or simply get your teeth aligned? Cosmetic dentistry is here. Any form of dentistry that focuses on the appearance of a patient’s smile and teeth or gums is called cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the bite, alignment of the teeth, the shape of the teeth and coloration among other things.
Types of Procedures
Five main types of dentistry are there which includes inlays and onlays, composite bonding, dental veneers, teeth whitening, and implants. All these procedures can be easily performed in an outpatient dentist office setting.
At the Richmond Hill Dental Office, we offer all these procedures and most importantly, we ensure that you come out fully satisfied after any procedure.
Risks associated with cosmetic dentistry are next to none but here are seven things that happen after cosmetic dental procedures.
1. A better smile
The first thing that you will notice after a cosmetic dental procedure is that you have a better smile. Be it whitening, straightening or fixing receding gums, cosmetic dentistry will give you a better smile.
2. Improved self-confidence
A better smile translates into more confidence. Doesn’t everyone love people who smile more? You become more approachable and personable.
3. Mood enhancer
The more you smile, the better you feel. Studies have shown that smiling increases the flow of dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin which are neurotransmitters that transport the happy vibes to the brain. Cosmetic dentistry can help you to start smiling more often all the time.
4. Improved social life
Some might think of this as a long shot but physical appearance plays a fair amount of role in dictating the social life of many individuals. It never hurt anyone to look more appealing which so many cosmetic dentistry patients have found out to their delight.
5. Healthier teeth and gums
Cosmetic dental procedures, once done, can cultivate good oral habits in patients. This can be in the form of brushing the teeth more often, flossing regularly or simply paying closer attention to their oral health.
6. Improved fitness and physical health
Better oral health means better overall health and wellness. It is a natural human tendency that after improving one physical aspect of the body, people tend to take proactive steps to get other areas of their health under control such as weight, nutrition or chronic illness.
7. Improved emotional health
An improved physical appearance and become physically healthier can have a massive impact on emotional health. Many times, this helps people coping with depression and sadness to change their outlook towards life.
Our confidence has a big effect on emotional health and cosmetic dentistry is the first step to having a dazzling smile.
The above mentioned seven things may not happen at the same time for all patients but a combination of some of them will definitely happen for most of them. Looking better and feeling better is the first step to kick-start your journey of oral health and wellness. For more information visit us at Richmond Hill Dental Office.
