What Is Really A Cosmetic Dentist?There are many ways in which we can improve our overall appearance.  Some people choose to change their style of clothes, others color their hair, while others may undergo surgical procedures.  However, enhancing your smile can be as simple as visiting Ivory Dental!  Ivory Dental uses state of the art cosmetic dental technology to offer patients services such as veneers, enamel shaping and dental implants.  Their experienced, professional cosmetic dentists will leave you smiling from ear to ear!

What Kind Of Procedures Do Cosmetic Dentists Offer?

Some individuals may have a particular tooth or teeth which they feel self conscious of or would like to correct.  Others may have an underlying condition or have sustained an injury which requires more extensive tooth repair work.  In either case, there are a variety of painless procedures which the cosmetic dentists of Ivory Dental can perform.  Some of the more common procedures include reshaping of the teeth as well as improving the color of the enamel to a brighter shade of white.  Some patients may have a decrease of self esteem due to tooth decay or missing teeth.  In these cases, the placement of dental implants, partial dentures or crowns may be necessary.

Recovery Dentistry

Many individuals suffer from facial trauma, whether from a motor vehicle accident, sports injury or underlying condition.  In some cases, even those who suffer from stress or anxiety may grind their teeth or jaw at night, which may likely result in the need for cosmetic dentistry.  For those who suffer from trauma, it is not uncommon for the blood supply to the teeth can be torn, which would cause rapid discoloration.  In other cases, a chipped or fractured tooth may need to be bonded in order to replace the missing piece.  

For those who suffer from chronic teeth grinding, the jaw may become misaligned.  This would cause an overbite and/or underbite, which would obscure the smile.  This can even cause shifting of the teeth from the gum line, which would cause an appearance of overcrowding, as well as an unappealing aesthetic of the mouth.

What Are The Next Steps?

It is important to visit the dentist regularly, to allow that to diagnose any potential pathology before it becomes worse.  This applies to dental procedures as well.  Ivory Dental can identify small problems such as stains on the enamel, to larger problems such as overcrowding or a misaligned jaw line.  Although the term cosmetic dentistry may sound like it is performed simply to improve appearance, it will also improve the overall functionality of the mouth when it comes to chewing, communicating and most importantly, smiling!  Call Ivory Dental today at (904) 998-1555.
