In Weston Cosmetic Dentistry is About More Than Great Smiles
We’ve found that most of our Weston patients believe that cosmetic dentistry is a purely elective procedure designed for esthetic purposes only. While some cosmetic dentistry does focus on perfecting a smile, there are many procedures that are classified as cosmetic that actually have a restorative function.
For example composite fillings, crowns and bridges are all classified as cosmetic dentistry but the all play an important restorative role. The procedures improve the look of the teeth but they also bring the teeth back to a healthy condition that allows them to function more efficiently.
Composite fillings replace decayed areas of the tooth with a material that is tooth colored rather than silver. Yes this makes the tooth appear more natural so you can call it cosmetic but it also performs the same restorative function as a traditional filling. Crowns strengthen cracked teeth and bridges replace missing teeth both important restorative procedures.
A mouth full of healthy teeth is important to everyone. We all are aware of what our smile looks like but the basic function of our teeth is to allow us to masticate food into digestible form and doing that with strong teeth is far easier than with damaged or missing teeth. Our teeth also play an important role in our ability to speak clearly and lastly, our teeth influence the shape of our face.
