Cosmetic Dentistry from our DeSoto and Dallas, TX, offices
Cosmetic dentistry procedures are available to change the size, shape, and color of damaged teeth, close gaps/spaces, and to replace missing teeth. Available cosmetic dental services include:
- Teeth whitening treatments
- Dental veneers
- Cosmetic contouring
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
- Tooth colored fillings
In many cases, a cosmetic dental procedure will overlap with a general dentistry treatment and improve your smile as well as your oral and even your general health, such as with tooth decay and gum disease treatments.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Most people will need some type of cosmetic dental improvements over time. After all, the aging process alone increases the risk of common problems like stains and discolorations due to the thinning of the enamel layer. Additionally, abrasive products like over-the-counter whitening treatments as well as certain dental conditions can both increase discolorations.
Fortunately, repairing or replacing damaged or missing teeth can improve your oral health and nutrition, while simultaneously raising your self-esteem, confidence, and, ultimately, your quality of life.
