New Year, New You: Why You Should Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

In the new year, people often think about their goals and aspects of their lives to improve in the coming months. For many people, these goals relate to their appearance.

This year, consider the benefits of cosmetic dentistry to help you feel better than ever in your own skin. Cosmetic dentistry treatments can dramatically improve your smile and give you a major confidence boost! 

The benefits of cosmetic dentistry to consider include:

Reduces the Signs of Aging

When people think about signs of aging, they typically picture wrinkles and graying hair. However, your age can show in your smile, too.

Even if you’ve practiced good oral hygiene throughout your life, the enamel of the teeth deteriorates over time. When the enamel breaks down, it reveals the dentin layer. This can make the teeth appear yellowed. Cosmetic dentistry procedures like professional teeth whitening can help you regain the bright white smile of your youth.

Replaces Missing Teeth

Chipped, cracked, or missing teeth can diminish your self-confidence. This year, you can start smiling without inhibitions with cosmetic dentistry. There are various treatments available to restore damaged teeth, including crowns, bridges, and veneers. These restorations provide the appearance of a flawless, natural smile to eliminate your smile insecurities. 

Straightens Your Smile

Few people are born with a straight smile. Additionally, even if you underwent orthodontic treatment in your youth, the teeth can still shift over time, leaving you with crooked teeth. 

Invisible braces and retainers can give you a perfectly straight smile. Ideal for patients with crooked or misaligned teeth, this cosmetic treatment gradually moves the teeth into alignment over the course of 6 to 12 months. 

At Lowry and Obrochta Dentistry St. Petersburg, we offer a broad range of cosmetic dentistry treatments so that you can feel more confident than ever in your smile. Contact us today to learn more!
