Cosmetic dentistry can change your life, especially if you are considering a new career that will put you in the public eye. However, that isn’t the only reason you should schedule a consultation with Dr. George Dental in Delray Beach.
Dr. George Sanchez explains that a healthy straight smile is also good for overall health as there is a connection between the mouth and the body.
Why Straight Teeth are Healthier Teeth
Straight teeth are easier to brush as are teeth that are free from chips and cracks. If you have a broken tooth or worse yet a broken silver amalgam filling, you know how tough it is to brush and floss. Nevertheless, that isn’t the only reason to consider restorative and cosmetic dentistry in Delray Beach.
Gum Disease and Cosmetic Dentistry
If your teeth are crooked, out of alignment or too close together plaque and tartar, the hard stuff, will make their way in-between your teeth and gums. Once that starts to happen pockets will form that are filled with debris and bacteria.
Straight teeth that are free from chips, cracks, and breaks are much easier to floss. Regular flossing helps prevent gingivitis, and the more serious peridontitis. While there are two types of gum disease, only gingivitis is curable.
Sadly, if you have periodontal disease you have it for life as there is no cure. Periodontitis can be controlled, but not cured.
Better for the Rest of your Smile
One of the biggest advantages of cosmetic dentistry is that it is better for the rest of your teeth.
As previously mentioned, teeth that are crowded are inviting bacteria to an already over populated environment. With so many teeth fighting for position, it’s tough to keep them clean.
During your consultation, your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach will evaluate your smile, including your bite, to determine the best defense for your overcrowded teeth and your smile.
Other Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Depending on your current situation, Dr. George Dental might suggest porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns, or orthodontics along with professional teeth whitening.
If you are missing a tooth or teeth, talk to Dr. George about replacements for missing teeth. Having a missing tooth is just as bad as crooked and chipped teeth for various reasons. For example, other teeth will do their best to move into the position of the missing tooth. This will alter your bite and your smile.
Dental implants, dental bridges, partial dentures, or full dentures are the best solutions for missing teeth.
