When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the first thing that comes to mind is a mouth full of unnecessary dental accessories that will help to enhance your appearance. And although things like teeth whitening and dental veneers, do just that, there are actually several types of cosmetic dentistry procedures that will actually give you health benefits? Read on to learn more.
As one of the most common types of cosmetic dentistry procedures, dental implants can sometimes get a bad rap for being deemed as an unnecessary procedure. Although dental implants can help to restore your smile to make you look more physically presentable, they actually have health benefits as well. For instance, if you have a missing tooth, your other teeth will shift and move in order to fill in that missing space. Whereas if you have something like a dental implant, none of that shifting will take place. Additionally, if you have several missing teeth, it can contribute to a collapsed jaw due to the deterioration that will take place by not having anything present in your mouth.
Straight teeth may seem like a mere cosmetic decision. However, a crooked jaw and a mouth full of crooked teeth can help to negatively affect the way your mouth functions overall, leading to things like a painful jaw, difficulty chewing, and even cavities if food gets stuck between your crooked teeth. However, as a simple and effective way to get a straight smile without having to deal with the hassle of traditional braces, Invisalign is a great option. To make sure that you’re a suitable candidate for Invisalign, you will have to schedule a consultation with Nazila Bidabadi at Soft Touch Dentistry.
