3 Reasons to Invest in Cosmetic Dentistry

December 11, 2023
3 Reasons to Invest

When many patients think of cosmetic dentistry, they believe it is unnecessary and may be out of their price range. Cosmetic dentists offer a range of affordable procedures to enhance your smile and boost your oral health.


Following are the top three reasons to invest in cosmetic dentistry:

1. Improve Oral Health

While the aesthetic benefits of cosmetic dentistry receive the most attention, these procedures can also significantly improve oral health.


Food and plaque collect in the spaces left by missing teeth, leading to a higher chance of gum disease and tooth decay. Missing teeth allow their neighbors to shift, disrupting the dental bite and causing alignment issues.

2. Preserve Natural Teeth

Dental crowns enable dentists to save your natural teeth, including the root system. A crown can repair a tooth with too much damage to support a filling. Crowns provide a natural look and excellent chewing ability.

3. Refresh Your Appearance

Cosmetic dentistry creates brighter, complete smiles. When you take advantage of cosmetic procedures, you will feel better about your appearance, improving your outlook. You may attract new personal and professional opportunities when you smile more often.

Our Cosmetic Procedures

Professional Teeth Whitening

We offer at-home professional whitening. In the office, we will create custom whitening trays by taking impressions of your teeth. We will provide a safe peroxide bleach gel to fill the trays. After about two weeks, you will see a brightened smile.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and bridges have both restorative and cosmetic benefits. Crowns cover damaged, decayed, or discolored teeth for a healthy appearance. Crowns also restore chewing ability.


Invisalign is a comfortable, discreet way to realign your teeth and improve your smile. The Invisalign system involves creating a series of medical-grade plastic aligners that gradually shift your teeth into optimal positions.

Dental Implants

Gaps in your smile may make you feel self-conscious. Dental implants replace broken, decayed, or missing teeth. Implants look and feel natural. You can choose full-arch implants (All on X) or single-tooth implants.


For patients missing many teeth, dentures can be life-changing. We offer traditional dentures, snap-on dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported varieties.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

How long does it take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign?

Invisalign usually takes about 12 to 18 months. Some patients may see faster results.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Since your dentist supervises professional teeth whitening, it is safe at home. The bleaching gel is strong, so you must follow your dentist's instructions to avoid problems.
