When you begin to get to know the different areas of dental care, you may find that you come up short on occasion with answers to seemingly simple questions. However, because many different treatments can address multiple concerns, it’s understandable that you find yourself a little confused. Rest assured, we can help you categorize different areas of care quite quickly. Let’s begin by explaining some things cosmetic dentistry is not, so your grasp on this type of care becomes much more solid.

#1: A Way To Rebuild Seriously Damaged Teeth

Cosmetic dentistry can address very minor types of physical damage like a chip or craze line because these issues don’t threaten your oral health. It can also address other problems that make your smile look less than gorgeous. However, its purpose is not to rebuild damaged teeth. For that, you will require restorative care.

#2: Dangerous Or Damaging

Cosmetic dentistry is not dangerous or damaging to your oral health. You may hear rumors that it will cause some form of injury but this is not the case. Remember that some treatments may remove a small amount of enamel for improvement or to create a beautiful finish (such as with veneer placement). However, such changes will never compromise the safety and health of your smile.

#3: Necessary

It’s important that you remember cosmetic dentistry is not necessary. It’s completely elective, which means you may choose cosmetic treatments if you are so inclined or you may not even consider them. It’s something available to you if you are interested in addressing esthetic concerns with your smile. We will never press you to select cosmetic services. We only support you if you express curiosity.
