Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a dental specialty that aims to improve the appearance of your smile. You can think of cosmetic dentistry as a makeover for your smile. The team at Faith Cousins, DDS, can use cosmetic treatments to enhance the size, shape, alignment, and color of your teeth to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Why should I get cosmetic dentistry?
Your teeth are more than just functional tools for grinding your food. They’re also a centerpiece of your facial aesthetics and a reflection of your mood and personality. Your smile expresses who you are and enables you to communicate that expression with those around you.
When you don’t feel good about how your smile looks, it affects your interactions with others and has a negative impact on your self-esteem. If you’re embarrassed about your teeth, you might find yourself smiling less and stifling laughter, which can keep you closed off from people.
Cosmetic dentistry frees you from that self-consciousness. By upgrading the aesthetics of your smile, cosmetic dentistry gives you the look you’ve always wanted, which can significantly boost your self-esteem.
What is the process for getting cosmetic dentistry?
When you get cosmetic dentistry at Faith Cousins, DDS, you start with a consultation. You and your dentist discuss the elements of your smile that you like and don’t like, and work together to determine how you’d ideally like your smile to look. Some people like to bring in pictures of smiles they admire to help sketch their dream smile.
In designing your dream smile, your dentist not only takes into account how to make your smile look great within your mouth but also how to make sure that it enhances and complements the rest of your facial aesthetics, like your bone structure and skin color. Your dentist then creates a treatment plan to turn your dream smile into a reality.
