Cosmetic dentistry is designed to improve the look of the smile, but its benefits go well beyond just making your smile look better. It can boost your mental health as well as your self-confidence because you will be proud to show off your smile. A beautiful smile can even have a positive impact on your career.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry at our Katoomba, NSW dental clinic isn’t just about teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. It refers to any dental procedure that can improve the bite, teeth, or gums. Some procedures that fall under this umbrella include:
- Cosmetic bonding
- Gum lift
- Crowns and bridges
- Clear braces and traditional orthodontics
- Tooth reshaping
- Gum grafts
- Dental implants
- Inlays and onlays
- Teeth whitening
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Impact Your Overall Well-Being
- It can improve the bite. When your bite is imbalanced, you can suffer from chronic headaches and other issues. Fixing your bite will make your smile look better—and it can actually improve your quality of life by eliminating pain.
- It can increase your focus on oral hygiene and improve your oral health. When your smile has been improved, you are often naturally more motivated to take better care of your dental hygiene. Just like taking care of a treasured sports car, people tend to do a better job taking care of their smile when they love the way it looks.
- It can contribute to better overall health. As more and more research reveals a connection between oral and systemic health, taking good care of your teeth and gums can protect the rest of your body. Periodontal disease has been shown to contribute to serious conditions, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and premature birth.
