Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry includes any services that improve the appearance of your teeth. These services may straighten your teeth, whiten your teeth, or even change the shape of your teeth, so you can enjoy your ideal smile.

At VP Dental, cosmetic dentistry services include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Tooth crowns
  • Bonding
  • Invisalign

These services don’t involve any surgical procedures to enhance your appearance. Dr. Preston and her team can help you decide what service or combination of services will help you achieve the beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted.

Why do I need cosmetic dentistry?

A great smile does more than improve your appearance; it can also improve your confidence and self-esteem. Many people seek out cosmetic dentistry services to improve their career and even their romantic life. Others use cosmetic dentistry before a big event, like a wedding.

Even people who take great care of their teeth may find their smile doesn’t live up to their desires. Some people may not like the natural shape of their teeth, while others may have easily stained teeth that are hard to keep white.

Cosmetic dentistry leaves your natural teeth intact and enhances their appearance. Many procedures are completely painless and offer immediate results. Whether you want to increase your sales numbers or find love, a great smile is always an advantage.

How can I take care of my cosmetic dentistry results?

Cosmetic dentistry is an investment in your smile. By practicing great oral hygiene, you are protecting your investment and ensuring your results last for years. To maintain your veneers, crowns, or natural teeth, you should:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day
  • Floss your teeth at least once a day
  • Visit your dentist twice a year for cleanings
  • Avoid chewing on hard, non-food objects like pen caps
  • Avoid foods that stain like coffee, tea, or red wine
  • Wear your Invisalign retainer as instructed

In addition to comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services, Dr. Preston and her team can teach you more about maintaining your beautiful smile. Call the office, or schedule an appointment online today for your cosmetic dentistry consultation.
