Regular dentists can help to make sure that you don’t have cavities and deal with common dental issues, but a cosmetic dentist can beautify your smile in ways you might not have imagined. If you’ve ever wanted a smile that shines from across the room, then Dr. James Driskell of Anchorage Dental Center in Anchorage, AK can help you decide if cosmetic dentistry will help you achieve the smile you’ve always longed for.
What’s Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is different from traditional dentistry because it helps to change your smile from an aesthetic perspective. It makes your smile more beautiful. A traditional dentist will focus on oral hygiene and the diagnosis of tooth issues like cavities and gum disease. A cosmetic dentist can help you create a “movie state smile” you may have always wanted but weren’t sure how to make a reality.
How Does Cosmetic Dentistry Differ from Regular Dentistry?
A cosmetic dentist can fix many dental issues that take away from a perfect smile:
Cracked, or chipped teeth
Underbite, overbite, and crossbite
There are many procedures cosmetic dentists use to fix less-than-perfect teeth.
Crowns - A porcelain, metal, or composite cap placed over a damaged or discolored tooth.
Bridges - An implant and cap combined when there needs to be a root canal.
Dentures - Partial and full dentures can create a beautiful smile
Implants - Helpful when a tooth needs to be more anchored into the jaw.
Whitening - The easiest way to brighten and whiten a smile.
Veneers - A set of thin porcelain that covers damaged or discolored teeth.
Invisalign or braces - There are numerous ways to straighten teeth or fill in gaps.
Root canal therapy - When a tooth is damaged and needs to be replaced.
