We’ve all seen those stunning Hollywood smiles and assume it takes a great deal of money to have a dazzling smile that lights up a room. That is a misconception, however. Many cosmetic dentistry procedures are affordable, and many of those procedures can be accomplished in just one visit to your office.

The cosmetic dentist, Dr. Karthilde Appolon, and the dental team at Appolon Dental Group want you to know that a beautiful white, straight smile can be yours, and you may be surprised to learn that it’s not as expensive and time-consuming as you think.

What Are Some of the Most Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?

Some of our dentist’s procedures are minor, while some are more involved and may take more than one visit. The most common procedures we perform daily to transform lackluster smiles into brilliant ones include:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Ceramic crowns
  • Insvisalign® clear aligners
  • Teeth whitening
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental implants 

Many of these procedures listed above are considered cosmetic dentistry treatments because they enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Still, some are deemed restorative dentistry because they restore the function of the structures of your mouth (teeth and gums). 

Regardless of whether these procedures fall under cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry, or restorative dentistry, the goal is all the same: to make your smile more beautiful while moving your oral health to its optimal state.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Correct?

Many of our patients only require one or two cosmetic dentistry procedures, while others require numerous procedures to accomplish their goals. You may have heard or read about a “smile makeover” in your research. A smile makeover is a term given to a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan that utilizes a few procedures to deliver the smile results you want.

Cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers correct these common dental problems:

  • Discolored/stained teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Gummy smiles
  • Missing teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Most of us have experienced one or more of these problems, and cosmetic dentistry is the means to correct these problems.

Before Cosmetic Dentistry

Suppose your main goal is to improve the aesthetics of your smile, but you have underlying issues such as the early stages of gum disease, bad breath, or tooth decay. In that case, Dr. Appolon will first address those general dentistry issues to prepare your mouth for cosmetic procedures. We cannot make damaged teeth more beautiful until we get to the root of the problem and correct any issues detracting from your oral health.

By performing a comprehensive evaluation, gathering your medical history, and discussing your goals with you, our team will then be able to create a treatment plan to address any dental issues you’re currently facing.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

The benefits of cosmetic dentistry are numerous; first and foremost, you’ll have a more attractive smile. Additionally, you will:

  • Feel more confident
  • Have healthier teeth and gums
  • Increase the longevity of your teeth and gums
  • Look younger
  • Be more inclined to participate in social activities that you avoided in the past due to an unattractive smile

Have a more aligned bite that will help minimize your chances of developing Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
