Have you ever hidden your smile by keeping your lips together? Maybe you put your hand over your mouth? Do you hesitate to throw your head back and laugh because you are self-conscious about your teeth? If so, then you are probably a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. At University Dental Group in Orlando, FL, we have a long list of cosmetic dentistry solutions, and are happy to sit down and consult with you about your goals.
Understanding Cosmetic Treatments
As your trusted dentist in Orlando, one of the first things we do when considering which cosmetic dentistry solutions are right for you is to first assess your overall oral health. We build your cosmetic treatments around a solid foundation of optimal oral health, and take time to ensure that your teeth and gums are in the best shape possible.
If your cosmetic dentist finds you need some general or restorative work, it should actually be seen as part of a broader, overall plan. After all, you need your teeth to be as strong and healthy as they look, and our cosmetic dentistry specialist can actually help you with that.
Does the need for general or restorative work make you less of a candidate for cosmetic dentistry? Not at all, and if you require treatments like dental crowns (which are both cosmetic and restorative) it just validates that you are a good candidate.
The Treatment Options
As you just saw, it can be difficult to create a solid list of the treatments that are specifically cosmetic. However, as part of many customized treatment plans for cosmetic dentistry, we will usually include:
It is not at all unusual for a candidate for cosmetic dentistry to need multiple treatments. For instance, we may whiten the teeth prior to creating veneers to ensure their smile is the brightest possible. We may use crowns to replace old metal fillings or whiten molars that are deeply stained.
