Cosmetic enhancement from your dentist in Marietta helps your image
We all have an image, whether we are immediately aware of it or not. Our appearance is the first thing that others notice about us, and vice versa. We make first impressions based on appearances, in a matter of mere seconds. From this standpoint, it is more easily understood that image really can be of great importance, both in your professional life as well as in your personal life.
Today, many people are looking at how they may make cosmetic enhancements of one form or another. This act is not one of vanity, but one of necessity. Tending to your image can mean choosing the right kind of clothing to wear to that important job interview or meeting, or it can mean visiting your dentist to maintain the health and beauty of your smile. In our Marietta practice, we are concerned with both, as we see the immense difference it makes to feel great about your aesthetic.
A number of cosmetic dentistry procedures are designed to improve the look of teeth, some of which are also restorative in nature. Straightening the teeth with Invisalign, for instance, not only improves the look of the smile but also leads to better oral hygiene by removing small spaces where bacteria can find refuge. Dental implants are another restorative procedure, this one intended to replace a tooth lost to trauma or decay permanently. Dental implants, although they take some time to complete, will last a lifetime.
Cosmetic dentistry solely intended for the enhancement of the smile includes treatments such as teeth whitening, which we approach through convenient and affordable at-home trays coupled with professional grade whitening gel. With the concentration of gel obtained from your dentist, deep stains can be reached, leading to long-lasting results that rejuvenate your entire face.
More challenging stains, such as those that come from years of smoking or prescription drug use, can be handled with dental veneers. These thin sheets of porcelain are custom made to correct the precise problem a patient is having. For instance, a broken tooth or a large gap can be covered with veneers. Within just a couple of visits, an entire smile can be made over with porcelain veneers.
You don't have to be a public figure to want a good image. With a little help in the area of your smile, you can feel great every day.
