Cosmetic dentistry is best described as a field of dental work that specifically focuses on ensuring the smile looks great. While esthetics is the primary goal, there are ways in which these treatments can also benefit one’s oral health. Dr. Richard Weimar of Weimar Family and Implant Dentistry works with Maple Grove, Minnesota area patients to help them decide on the best treatments for their unique needs–and oral hygiene!
Many patients who visit Weimar Family and Implant Dentistry have questions about undergoing cosmetic treatments and want to know if this type of dentistry is healthy for the smile. Cosmetic dental procedures are designed to enhance the beauty of a smile but also benefit oral health in many ways.
Cosmetic dentistry can be used to correct alignment issues, like crowding or gapped teeth. This type of work not only improves the smile’s appearance but also supports better oral health by correcting dental misalignment. Patients with crooked or crowded teeth are more likely to deal with tooth decay because keeping the teeth and gums clean between overlapping teeth is difficult. The patient can achieve a healthier smile with improved oral hygiene maintenance by undergoing cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneers.
Alternatively, many types of cosmetic dental treatments also provide additional protection for the teeth. For example, porcelain veneers are thin coverings bonded to the front of natural teeth, providing an extra layer of defense against decay and damage. Dental crowns also strengthen weak or damaged teeth, helping prevent breakage and other issues.
At Weimar Family and Implant Dentistry, we believe that cosmetic dentistry can not only improve the overall appearance of your smile but can also improve the health of both your teeth and gums. Our trained and experienced dental team is available to help create a unique and customized treatment plan that will address both esthetic and oral health needs.
