Do you want to change the way your teeth look? If your teeth are misaligned, discolored, chipped, or broken, or you have gaps between your teeth, then cosmetic dentistry is the way to achieve the smile of your dreams. Research has shown that your smile is one of the main things people notice when they meet you; therefore, having an attractive smile will improve your confidence. Cosmetic procedures not only help with making your smile look beautiful and boost your self-esteem, it also supports your overall oral health.
Cosmetic dentistry and oral health
There are many ways cosmetic dentistry can benefit your overall oral health, but let’s talk about orthodontic treatment. Straight teeth are more accessible to brush than teeth that are crooked, so having straight teeth can reduce the risk of tooth decay and plaque retention, which can also prevent gum disease. Also, straight teeth can better your digestion since when food is chewed properly, it will get digested easier and cause less intestinal damage over time. In addition, having an even bite can prevent you from contracting temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ). The TMJ is like a sliding hinge that connects your jaw bone and your skull. TMJ disorders can cause pain and compromised movement of the jaw joint and the surrounding muscles. It can also cause headaches, and other symptoms like clicking in the jaw.
