Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?candidate for cosmetic dentistry

According to the American Academy for Cosmetic Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedure that is specifically designed to improve the attractiveness of your smile. Thus, cosmetic dentistry can cover a number of procedures, including teeth whitening, dental bonding, crowns, veneers, reshaping and/or contouring, and other procedures. Each of these may or may not improve your dental health, but they will all improve your beautiful smile. So, are you a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

Your Teeth Are Generally Healthy – But They Are Not Attractive

When you visit your dentist in Corpus Christi, you generally get a good bill of dental health. You don’t have a lot of cavities, and your gums are in good shape. However, when you look in the mirror, you aren’t happy with the way your teeth look.

If this is the case, you may be a great candidate for cosmetic dentistry, no matter what the issue is. Cosmetic dentistry can correct:

  • Crooked teeth
  • An overbite or under-bite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • A gummy smile
  • Uneven teeth
  • Yellow or stained teeth

You Want to Feel Confident in Your Smile

Even if your teeth are not in perfect health, you may still be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, as some cosmetic procedures have positive effects on dental and oral health, as well. Essentially, if you feel as though you have to hide your teeth when you smile or talk, you are probably a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry.

Whether or not you need restorative dental work done to improve your dental health, cosmetic dentistry can give you back your confidence in your smile. This can then give you the confidence to go after that promotion at work or to really shine at your next job interview. You may even notice positive changes in your social life once you feel comfortable giving people an open smile instead of guarding your teeth from view.
