Broome, DMD, can recommend cosmetic dentistry procedures to help you achieve the mouth you’ve always wanted. But despite its name, cosmetic dentistry can also offer many other health benefits beyond the aesthetic. Let’s learn about some of those boosters to your health.

Dental Bonding for Stronger Teeth

Dental bonding, tooth replacement and crowns can be used to restore a wide variety of different dental conditions. Whether you have missing, chipped, damaged or cracked teeth, these procedures can restore and strengthen your smile. This will allow you to properly chew and digest food as if your natural teeth were still whole. If maintained with proper oral care, these procedures can be permanent, and give you a healthy smile that will last a lifetime.

Fighting Gum Disease

Gum disease is a major concern because it can advance to periodontitis, causing tooth loss and even bone loss. There are a number of procedures that can help treat infected areas of the gums and restore them to their original vigor. Periodontal disease has been linked to a number of other very serious health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and even Alzheimer’s. The first step toward oral health is to restore the health of your gums, but once proper gingival health has been restored, enhancements can be made to perfect your smile.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

In some rare cases, more intense steps must be taken to build a healthy smile. Cosmetic dentistry is essential in these cases. Sometimes, serious tooth decay and trauma can require full mouth reconstruction. This can happen because of serious trauma from car accidents or other injuries to the face and mouth, massive erosion from other health conditions like acid reflux, or problems with other areas of the face like TMJ. TMJ can lead to significant tooth erosion. Treating these conditions alone might not be enough to bring your smile back. Full mouth reconstruction will rebuild all of your teeth, gum line, jawbone and jaw muscles. It will also enhance the color, size, and alignment of your teeth. This customized treatment will leave you with a perfect, permanent smile. Another benefit of cosmetic dentistry is overall confidence and happiness. The more you smile, the happier you feel. Researchers have found that people who smile more live longer, happier lives.
