Are you looking to upgrade your smile and turn heads when you walk in the room? Do you want to get more self-confidence going into a job interview, first date, and so on? If so, then you should consider cosmetic dentistry services.

What is cosmetic dentistry? As opposed to general dentistry services, cosmetic dentistry services are aimed at improving the aesthetic of your teeth. There are several treatments to do that. it can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.

See below for a list of benefits that you will receive when you get serviced by a cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Trujillo.

1. More Self-Confidence

Imagine walking into your job with a brand-new smile. Your straight and bright smile can give you self-confidence in even the most nervous of situations such as meetings with upper management, going to a party, and so on.

Cosmetic dentistry patients all receive a boost in their self-confidence due to the smile improving their overall physical appearance. Even things like going to the gym will be more enjoyable with an improved aesthetic.

Without the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, you might experience problems with your teeth that lower your self-esteem. You might have tooth stains, crooked teeth, and even missing teeth that make you self-conscious about smiling in public.

Do you have more gums covering your teeth than you’d like? You might consider gum contouring to expose more of the tooth’s surface. Are some of your teeth improperly sized or chipped? You can get dental contouring and bonding to straighten things up.

No matter what issues you’re having with the aesthetic of your smile, our cosmetic dentistry team has a service to solve it.

2. Younger Appearance

Believe it or not, receiving cosmetic dentistry can shave a few years off your face. A straight and bright smile is often associated with youth, meaning you get a shot of “youth” to your appearance after receiving cosmetic dental services.

No matter how well you take care of your teeth and prioritize your oral hygiene, your teeth are bound to become more yellow as you age. While teeth whitening services are a great option, you’ll also need cosmetic dentistry to fix a chipped tooth or receding gumline.

When you schedule an initial appointment with your cosmetic dentist, they’ll assess your current smile and make a few recommendations. You can also inform them of your concerns or things that you’re looking to correct in your smile as well.

The result is a newer, younger-looking you with a fresh supply of confidence. You’ll find any reason to show off your youthful smile!

3. Improved Oral Health

Contrary to popular belief, cosmetic dental treatments aren’t just for improving the aesthetic of your smile. They’re also aimed at improving your teeth’s functionality.

For example, your incisors are the four front teeth on the bottom and top of your jaw that are responsible for biting into your food. However, if one of them is crooked or misshapen, it can’t perform its job correctly.

Teeth that are not properly aligned can cause the misalignment of your jaw and affect your Temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Chewing may become impaired or even painful.

This impairment may cause headaches and other health issues. It may even lead to avoiding eating certain nutritious foods like carrots or anything that require a properly functioning jaw to chew.

By receiving cosmetic dental treatments, you’ll be optimizing your teeth to chew food properly in order to digest it more efficiently.

4. Less Pain

Perhaps you find it incredibly painful to eat food that’s too hot or too cold. Maybe you suffer from headaches that are caused by muscle tension in your jaw. These are just two examples of how your teeth’s current condition can negatively affect your health.

By visiting a cosmetic dentist team, patients can finally access relief from the pain they’ve experienced for so long.

For example, the pain you get from eating cold food could be from gum recession caused by you brushing your teeth too hard. If too much of the tooth is exposed, it can cause a shot of pain or discomfort.

Fortunately, a cosmetic dentist can help you get back to where you can eat cold food comfortably and have an improved smile in the process.

5. Accountability for Oral Hygiene

Many patients struggle to find the inspiration to keep up with a proper oral hygiene routine, which should consist of brushing, flossing, and using antiseptic mouthwash twice a day.

If you are constantly reminded of the faults of your smile in the mirror, then you’re less likely to stick with the routine and keep your gums/teeth healthy.

However, after receiving cosmetic dentistry services from Dr. Trujillo and his team, you’ll be reinvigorated to take better care of your smile. 

Your new and beautiful smile will give you a level of accountability that you’ve never had before. Whether you aim to keep the results of your teeth whitening treatment or start brushing less aggressively after a gum graft, you’ll be motivated to improve.

Get access to a smile that you’re proud of by scheduling an initial appointment. There you can ask questions and learn more about procedures to fix your smile.
