Cosmetic Dentistry is Good for Oral Health

Cosmetic dentistry should be added to your spring makeover regime. You may be spending hours at the gym and eating right, but if you don’t have a smile, that you are proud or, what’s the point? My Downtown Portland dental practice can give you a beautiful smile with cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help your overall oral health and the rest of your body.

Cosmetic dentistry is more than aesthetic. Cosmetic dentistry can help keep your mouth healthy as it straightens your teeth, fills in the gaps, and gets rid of chips and cracks that can cause problems for your other teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments that Will Keep Your Mouth Healthy

Dental Crowns-Dental crowns cover teeth that are badly shaped or discolored. Dental crowns not only improve the appearance of the tooth, but also make the tooth stronger. Dental crowns are used to restore a broken tooth, protect a tooth that is weak and to attach dental bridges.

Dental Bonding-Used to restore your teeth, cosmetic dental bonding bonds dental material to your tooth by fusing the dentin and enamel together with the resin or porcelain that is used to make your teeth stronger, and best of all, cosmetic dental bonding looks great.

Clear Braces-If your teeth are crooked, tipped or rotated it makes it difficult to brush. Although it is a form of cosmetic dentistry, clear braces can help your overall oral health as they gently push your teeth together according to your invisible braces plan. Braces can be problematic as it is impossible to brush under the traditional wires and brackets, which could lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental Implants-The best replacement for missing teeth is also good for your jawbone as the posts fuse directly to the bone. Dentures and other types of tooth replacement procedures don’t exercise the bone and allow for bone resorption.

There are other types of cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as inlays and onlays, that can help your mouth stay healthy. My dental practice in Downtown Portland can help you come up with a plan that will give you a beautiful and healthy smile.
