Cosmetic Dentistry Is Important for Many Reasons

We all need to see the dentist on a regular basis to make sure those small cavities don’t grow into a full root canal procedure. But there are other things available for more cosmetic purposes that can be important both to your health and personal confidence.

The Cosmetic Dentist in Wicker Park and Bucktown has done what would be called cosmetic procedures for patients in the past but those patients have gotten more than just a superficial improvement to their teeth. These procedures can also help repair damage that has happened over the years to teeth and make them last longer and perform better than they have in years.

Cosmetic Procedures and Their Benefits

Teeth Whitening. Not only can a good professional cleaning whiten teeth, it can remove harmful plaque and tartar which will prevent the development of gum disease. According to the ADA, both the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and The American Association of Orthodontists found most Americans want to whiten their teeth. The best way involves having a whitening agent used by the cosmetic dentist in the office to whiten your teeth. At home agents may be applied improperly and hurt the patient’s gums. Once whitened, patients are more interested in keeping them stain free and healthier.

Tooth Implants. Replacing a broken tooth will not only improve the smile but also keep the underlying bone stronger and healthier.

Veneers. A damaged tooth can be saved by placing a ceramic covering over it called a veneer and give that person back both their smile and a tooth that will perform better.

Crowns. A more involved replacement procedure than veneers, a crown can be attached to a fractured tooth to help with chewing and keeping the underlying bone structure intact.

All of these procedures can be performed by Dr. Anast and Associates at Kimberly Smiles Cosmetic and General Dentistry. Please contact them today and get on the road to not only a brighter but healthier smile.
