Aesthetic dentistry is the dental specialty which alters the appearance of teeth to give a patient the look they have always wanted, the perfect smile. Aesthetic dentistry is not necessarily used to maintain the health of your teeth and gums, it is very much an elective process; a process that you can rely on to improve your appearance and your smile.
There are numerous procedures that an aesthetic dentist can use; these include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, crowns, etc. These types of procedures can add considerable luster to your teeth, close small gaps between your teeth and cover up minor surface imperfections such as cracks and chips.
Even though aesthetic dentistry includes procedures that are purely cosmetic in nature you will still want to talk in detail to the dentist. When you elect to visit an aesthetic dentist you do so with certain expectations, it is a careful combination of your desires and the dentist’s skill and knowledge that will result in the smile you have dreamed of having. You will talk to the dentist in detail to be quite certain that this is what you want before the dentist schedules treatments, the dentist knows what can be done and will explain in detail what you can expect and how much it will cost.
Your teeth are the first thing someone sees; they are very much the “doorway” to your personality, the appearance of your teeth has an impact on your looks and your actions. It is no fun if you feel you must cover your mouth with your hand every time you want to break out in a smile, nor is teeth that are stained by foods, beverages or tobacco attractive. An aesthetic dentist is the professional to consult if you want a perfect smile. This dental specialty takes years of additional study and practice to perfect, as a result you can expect cosmetic dental procedures to be quite expensive.
Because aesthetic dentistry can be expensive, it is something that you have to prepare for. In some cases dental insurance plans will cover cosmetic work but this is rare. Dental insurance is usually associated with the repair and restoration of teeth that have been damaged through trauma or poor dental hygiene.
Aesthetic dental procedures usually only affect the surface of the teeth, such as teeth whitening or the application of a veneer; the treatments are rarely painful but when they are completed you will be overjoyed with the outcome.
Aesthetic dentistry includes a host of procedures which are designed to enhance your appearance and smile. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look you are invited to make an appointment with Beverly Hills Institute of Dental Esthetics. You can also like their Facebook page.
