Finding the right practice for your family cosmetic dentistry needs is the best way to keep everyone on track with dental health. You need a dentist you can trust to keep your teeth strong and healthy who will also keep your children calm and happy during a procedure.
Cosmetic dentistry is another area where the whole family can be covered at the same office. Although “cosmetic” makes it sound like it only covers the way your teeth look, cosmetic dentistry is a great way to keep your teeth strong and healthy for years to come.
Take a look at some of the ways each age group can benefit from cosmetic dentistry at a local family dental practice…
Pediatric Cosmetic Dentistry: Bonding, Sealants
Even if they still have their baby teeth, many children can benefit from cosmetic procedures. Active kids can have teeth chipped, broken, or even knocked out in extreme cases. While it may not seem useful to take care of a problem with a primary (baby) tooth, it’s important to note that a damaged primary tooth can cause problems with adult teeth that haven’t come in yet. Once all the adult teeth are in your dentist can address whether or not the child will need braces. Sealants are a great way to prevent future cavities in both primary and adult teeth
Cosmetic Dentistry for Teenagers: Whitening, Bonding, Reshaping, Invisalign
One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures for teenagers is tooth whitening/bleaching. Dentist-supervised at-home whitening treatments are a safe and effective option to get a brighter smile that will build confidence. Other cosmetic treatments common among teenagers are fixing chipped or misshapen teeth with bonding. If your teen has all of their adult teeth in, we can fit most teenagers with the Invisalign aligner system to straighten out teeth.
Cosmetic Procedures for Adults: Veneers, Dental Implants, Invisalign, Bonding, Whitening
Common cosmetic procedures for adults include tooth whitening, reshaping, veneers, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. These procedures will help your smile look great while also keeping your teeth strong and healthy well into old age. Many adults also opt to use the Invisalign system for a straighter smile without the inconvenience of traditional braces. In addition to looking great, straight teeth have the benefit of being easier to clean, care for, and function better.
Procedures for Seniors: Dental Implants, Bridges, Bonding, Dentures
As the body ages it becomes more difficult to properly care for your teeth. The gums can recede, which can make cavities and decay more likely. In many older patients, it may be easier and more cost effective to extract the teeth and replace them with implants and/or dentures. A cosmetic procedure isn’t just for looks! Replacing damaged or missing teeth with strong implants or dentures can help seniors retain their quality of life.
