The Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry
People want to look their best. That’s why we wear makeup. It’s why we get our hair styled, and it’s why we wear the clothes that we do.
It’s also why cosmetic dentistry has been practiced to one degree or another for thousands of years. Yes, thousands.
It’s why dentures were developed. It’s why (according to National Geographic), the ancient Mayans created holes in their teeth to place gems.
At Kirchner Dental, we have more modern techniques for improving the appearance of your smile, but the reasons to consider cosmetic dental care often go deep than a particular thing a patient would like to change about his or her teeth.
We have seen firsthand how improving someone’s smile can give him or her a confidence boost at the same time.
Surveys show that having a nice smile has social benefits as well. In general, people with nice smiles are considered friendlier, more intelligent, more trustworthy, and more attractive by others.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do For Your Smile
We want you to take a moment to consider the ways you can change your smile with cosmetic dentistry at Kirchner Dental before we explain the different services that we offer.
You could have:
✚ Whiter teeth
✚ Straighter teeth
✚ Evenly spaced teeth
✚ Teeth of comparable size
To put this another way, you could have a smile with sparkling white teeth that are straight with no crowding or gaps and no teeth that look chipped, broken, or worn down.
You could have your own Hollywood smile. We can’t promise it will help you land a role in next summer’s biggest blockbuster, we do know it never hurts to have a smile that you like to share.
How We Can Improve Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry
Now we are getting to the nitty gritty. Below, we will explain the specific services you will find at Kirchner Dental and how each can help you improve your smile.
★ Teeth Whitening
Let’s start with arguably the most popular form of cosmetic dentistry in the United States. You know if you’ve bought toothpaste anytime recently that there are scores of “whitening” products on the shelves. Some of them will remove more stains than others, but there is limit to what commercial whitening products can do.
You should make an appointment for professional teeth whitening at Kirchner Dental if you want to remove the deepest stains from your teeth. Our Zoom whitening can remove more stains in less time than anything you can find a few aisles away from candy and soft drinks.
★ Invisalign® or ClearCorrect
These are both short-term orthodontic treatment options. These systems use clear aligners instead of brackets and wires to discreetly and gently push you teeth into straight positions. They can close gaps between teeth, fix crooked or crowded teeth, and address bite issues such as overbites and underbites.
★ Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding, also known as dental bonding, is a way to fix individual teeth that are chipped, cracked, or worn down from use. The bonding material is a composite resin that matches the color of natural teeth so it will blend in with the rest of your smile.
★ Laser Dentistry
Your teeth aren’t the only thing to consider changing with cosmetic dentistry. If you have a gummy smile, your gum tissue may dominate your teeth.
We can use a special dental laser to remove some of the excess gum tissue to get your smile in balance.
★ Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are different approach to cosmetic dentistry. Instead of making changes to your teeth, we will hide them behind a special shell that is custom-fitted for your teeth.
Veneers have been used to make teeth look brilliantly white and perfectly straight, and dental veneers can restore the shape of multiple chipped and worn down teeth at the same time.
Cosmetic Dentistry Done Right
Dr. Kirchner and the rest of our team want you to feel good about your smile. That why cosmetic dentistry is an important part of our Southern Indiana dental care.
