The smile of a person greets others and the way someone smiles can share a lot of visual information about the self-esteem and self-image of that person. A warm and open smile shows that someone is comfortable with their appearance and generally has a good self-image. A person with a smile that is closed and not very inviting might not be confident in the appearance of their teeth due to dental issues or damage to the teeth. The teeth might be cracked or chipped or there could be issues with the teeth because of poor dental care on the part of the person. They could have an unnatural shape because of trauma or an accident to the teeth. Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of the teeth and can also be performed to improve the smile of a person.
Here are some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry methods that improve the smile of a person:
Cosmetic dentistry is able to improve the appearance of the teeth and gums and also improve the functionality of teeth and gums. Patients that want to improve the functionality and the aesthetics of damaged or missing teeth should meet with a board-certified cosmetic dentist in order to have their current teeth examined by the dentist. The cosmetic dentist can determine the extent of the current damage to the mouth as well as let the patient know about the amount of functional changes that can be made with their teeth and gums. Once the patient knows the options available for their teeth, an appointment can made to create the desired changes and improvements to the function and appearance of the teeth.
