smiling-girl-dentist-300x199Cosmetic Dentistry is essentially any type of work done to your teeth that helps to improve the appearance of them. Cosmetic dentistry can provide a number of benefits and while it generally doesn’t address oral health issues, done in conjunction with basic oral care, it can have a significant impact on an individual’s overall life.

The four key benefits that cosmetic dentistry offers are:

  • A brighter, more confident smile
  • More confidence and boosted self-esteem
  • Increase oral comfort
  • Improve oral health

Looking at each of these in more detail, you will understand how much cosmetic dentistry can offer the average resident in Toronto.

A Brighter Smile

When your teeth don’t look great, when they are stained, yellow, chipped or cracked, or have a high number of cavities, you will tend to hide them from others. Over a longer period of time, this will likely lead to you covering your mouth or avoiding smiling altogether.

When you have certain cosmetic work done to your teeth, when you mouth is whiter and your teeth look better, you will smile more because you’ll want to smile more.

More Confidence

Smiling more has been shown to increase self confidence. A great deal of research has been conducted to show how much one’s ability to be happy and comfortable with their teeth and their smile boost confidence.

The more you are willing to smile, the more you’re going to attract people to you and that will have a direct and positive impact on your overall confidence.

More Comfortable Teeth

When you have veneers, implants, or other cosmetic work done on your teeth, they will feel better. Your mouth will be more comfortable. Even if you had crooked teeth all of your life and had work done to improve their condition, they will feel different, but they will also be more comfortable.

Better Oral Health

When you have a new car, you’re going to take care of it for quite a while. You may baby it, wash it every week, wax it regularly, and vacuum it out all the time. You’ll admonish anyone who tries to bring food into your car.

When you have new, healthy, bright looking smile, you’re going to take better care of your teeth and overall oral health.
