Cosmetic dentists Essex
The term “cosmetic” often gives people the impression of something that is fashionable. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good and an industry is based on people maintaining youthful looks. However Cosmetic dentists Essex is about more than just making your face look good (although this is good in and of itself!)
Why is this important?
The mouth (and most specifically the smile) are a big part of appearance. You do not necessarily have to look like a movie star but if you have a good smile and a confident air it can often help charm people.
Think about the situations that can be improved by smiling. A smile often indicates trust, happiness and contentment. If a waiter sees you scowling after you say the food is “fine” they are unlikely to think you are being sincere (even if you are).
What does a cosmetic dentist do?
A cosmetic dentist can look over your teeth in much the same way as a regular dentist does. They can advise you on the state of your oral health in order to make sure that your mouth is properly maintained.
Services that a cosmetic dentist can offer include-
I don’t want to look fake. How can I be sure I don’t get whitened teeth that blind people like car headlights?
As with any industry certain myths can persist. There is the idea that anyone can instantly tell if you have had work done on your teeth. However cosmetic dentistry is a fine balance between artistic and technical ability. A good cosmetic dentist knows that the end results have to improve appearance while still appearing to be natural.
That’s all well and good but what else can you offer besides an improvement on the surface?
Depending on the treatment, a lot!
Dental treatments can make it easier for you to eat
They can improve speech, something that is vital if your job requires you to give presentations or you simply want to improve your communication skills. You could be able to recite Shakespeare from memory but it is less impressive if people can’t understand you!
Improved oral health- Dental treatments can reduce the development of gum disease.
Reduced complications- People forget that gum disease can be an initial symptom of serious problems such as heart attacks and lung failure. It may seem strange but regular trips to a dentist can prevent this!
