How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Life

How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Life | Dr. Huefner

Your smile plays an essential part in the way you perceive yourself and the way others see you. If you’re embarrassed by the state of your teeth, it’s most likely going to be apparent in pictures as you try to hide behind a closed-lip smile. Cosmetic dentistry can give you teeth you’re proud of, but it can also have an impact on other areas of your life and even your oral health such as:

  1. Regaining some of your youth. Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as porcelain veneers allow you to change your tooth shape and size, which may give you a younger appearance.
  2. Fixing old injuries. If you have cracked or chipped teeth from an accident or facial injury, a smile makeover or other cosmetic option can return your teeth to their proper condition.
  3. Healthier teeth and gums. When you’re proud of your teeth, you’re more likely to take care of them. Good oral hygiene habits and dental cleanings can stop gum disease and keep your newly renovated smile healthy.
  4. A confidence boost. Your smile is one of the first things an employer or potential date notices about you. You won’t have to hide your teeth after your cosmetic dentistry procedure with Dr. Huefner. This can give you the confidence you need to go after a new job or company position and ask that special someone on a date.

Chelsea Gets Great Smile With Porcelain Veneers

Laguna Niguel porcelain veneers

Chelsea had crooked, discolored teeth and got an amazing smile with porcelain veneers in just two appointments with Dr. Huefner

Chelsea is a young lady in her 20s.  She was always self conscious about her smile because her teeth were crooked and discolored.  It was bothering her so much that she wouldn’t smile when she was in photos.  Her parents wanted her to have braces when she was a youngster and she always regretted that she wouldn’t go through the braces process back then.  Now, as a young adult, she wanted a beautiful smile, but still was unwilling to go through braces.  After speaking with one of her co-workers who had cosmetic dentistry, she wondered if she could have cosmetic dentistry instead of orthodontics.  So, she went to Dr. Huefner, her co-worker’s dentist, to see what he could do to help her.

Dr. Huefner discussed her options.  He told Chelsea that she could solve her problem either orthodontics with braces or Invisalign, followed with teeth bleaching, or porcelain veneers.  When she learned that there was a big difference in the amount of time between her two options, she immediately chose that Dr. Huefner do porcelain veneers for her.  He said she could have her beautiful new smile in just two appointments with the porcelain veneer approach, rather than many months with either of the two orthodontic approaches.  Also, by doing porcelain veneers he could make the shape of her teeth more perfect and she could actually choose the color.  One huge advantage that Dr. Huefner told Chelsea, was that porcelain veneers would not stain or darken over time, compared with the bleaching approach, which would need to be repeated every six to twelve months to keep her teeth looking their whitest.

After the two appointments and getting her new porcelain veneers by Dr. Huefner, Chelsea was absolutely thrilled with the results.  And as you can see by the final results, she has no reason to not show her beautiful new smile when she gets photos taken!

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Just like any cosmetic procedure, there are risks and benefits involved. By working with our Orange County cosmetic dentistry team, you can discover all the techniques and tools available to enhance your smile.

Some common cosmetic dentistry procedures are:

1)         Dental Bonding – Dental Bonding is a treatment option for any chipped, broken, stained or cracked teeth. It is also effective for balancing out any excess spaces between teeth.

2)         Teeth Whitening – The options for teeth whitening include in-office procedure or at-home treatments. If you teeth are stained or discolored for any reason from consuming foods, smoking, taking specific medicines, or beverages such as coffee or tea, then learning more about teeth whitening procedures is a good idea.

3)         Porcelain Veneers – These delicate, custom shells cover the front sides of your teeth to improve their color, tone, and shape. Porcelain veneers last much longer than bonding and are less expensive than dental crowns.
