Dr. Deborah Gennero, your Houston, TX cosmetic dentist, shares some common facts about cosmetic dentistry for patients who have an interest in undergoing a few procedures.

What You Probably Didn’t Know about Cosmetic Dentistry

  1. Cosmetic dentistry is also restorative. Even though cosmetic dentistry is elective, some restorative dental procedures also classify as cosmetic. For example, composite resin allows cavity fillings to go unnoticed. Yet, the tooth is freed of decay and becomes perfectly restored.
  2. More than just aesthetics. Having a great smile is more than just showcasing sound oral health. Studies have proven that people with a beautiful smile tend to appear smarter, friendlier, successful, and even more interesting. Furthermore, researchers have found that an employer is more than likely to promote and employee with a nice-looking smile than one with a less-than-perfect smile.
  3. Create uniformity. As aforementioned, cosmetic dentistry is sometimes considered restorative dentistry, which extends to dental implants, too. Patients with dental implants can prevent future tooth loss by replacing their missing tooth roots. However, alongside restoring your mouth’s functionality, you’re able to regain a uniform smile. Since a dental implant is typically made from porcelain material, you’re able to color-match the implant to your surrounding natural teeth.
  4. Veneers have corrected many Hollywood smiles. The ever-popular porcelain veneers have been known to completely transform smiles. In fact, many actors and singers can attribute their smiles to veneers. These Hollywood smiles include the ones of George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, and even Nicholas Cage.
