Have you ever thought about improving the way your smile looks? Are there things about your smile that you dislike, or that make you feel self-conscious? If so, cosmetic dentistry could be right for you.

At Glen Park Dental, our dentists and team of professionals have the knowledge, techniques, technology, and materials to dramatically improve your smile.

Is cosmetic dentistry right for you?

You may wonder if cosmetic dentistry is right for you. If there is anything about your smile that you are unhappy with, big or small, then you are probably an ideal candidate for cosmetic dentistry. The good thing about cosmetic dentistry is it can entail minor fixes such as teeth whitening, or more in-depth procedures that help replace missing teeth and repair extensively damaged teeth.

First impressions are everything

Your smile is the first thing that others notice about you. When you feel good about your smile, you feel good about yourself. You are more likely to socialize and feel confident when you smile. A good-looking smile also is often seen as an indicator of good overall health. Typically, a smile that looks good also has a higher level of functionality. You can eat and chew normally, and your bite is properly aligned, thus improving your overall quality of life.

What can your cosmetic dentist do for you?

A dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry has a set of skills and knowledge that goes beyond what is taught in normal dental school.

A cosmetic dentist can help resolve many different aesthetic issues with your smile, such as: 

  • A gap between teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Crowded or crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gummy smile
  • Teeth that appear too short
  • Missing teeth

Which cosmetic dental procedures are best for you?

That is a decision that should be made through collaboration between you and your cosmetic dentist. A trusted cosmetic dentist should perform a thorough evaluation of your oral health before beginning any cosmetic work, and also examine your overall health history to determine any pre-existing conditions that may cause complications. Together, you and your cosmetic dentist can help determine the best course of action.

Be sure to make note of everything about your smile that bothers you, and address these concerns with the dentist. During your consultation, the dentist will derive a personalized treatment plan that outlines the necessary cosmetic dental procedures to have you smiling with confidence in no time.
