What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a practice aimed at creating a positive change to your smile and teeth.  Ensuring your mouth is healthy and clean is the first step, followed by plans to improve the look of your teeth.  Through teeth whitening, orthodontic, and other cosmetic dental procedures, dentists strive to improve your self-esteem and confidence.  We want you to feel happy and confident with your smile, so you show it off more often!

Cosmetic Dentistry – Who Needs It?

If you are unhappy or embarrassed about showing your teeth, and you’ve found yourself exploring cosmetic dentistry as an avenue, you’re a likely candidate.  In addition to the aesthetic value of cosmetic dentistry, you may also find vast benefits in improving the overall health and hygiene of your mouth/teeth.  If you have stained/discolored teeth or gaps and cracks in your teeth, cosmetic dentistry is the best option to fix these issues. Some of the main reasons for cosmetic procedures:

  • Stronger teeth
  • Improved aesthetics
  • Confidence boost
  • Recover from an injury

Although you may think cosmetic dentistry procedures can be pricy, there are so many options for payment.  Competitive pricing offers patients a chance to have procedures completed at a lower-cost than in the past.  Teeth whitening is a small step toward the right direction in improving your smile, and it is relatively inexpensive.  Coslon Dental provides an array of cosmetic services, including whitening, crowns, and dental implants.
