New Year resolutions are popular, and over half are health-related, but very few include a brighter and healthier smile using the latest cosmetic dental treatments. However, cosmetic dentistry can improve your appearance, boosting self-esteem, and some treatments help to protect your oral health.
For example, porcelain crowns and fillings help protect and preserve your teeth, and the latest all-ceramic crowns look amazingly natural, restoring your smile. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the most advanced way to replace them, providing you with implant teeth that look and function just like real teeth. Additionally, implant teeth help to protect your jawbone, prevent existing teeth from shifting position and restore your bite, protecting your jaw joints.
Porcelain veneers are an extremely popular way to cosmetically improve smiles, hiding teeth that are discoloured, chipped or worn, or that are too small or the wrong size. They can also close or reduce unsightly gaps between teeth, eliminating potential food traps that can increase the risk of tooth decay.
Looking after your teeth also ensures you have beautifully fresh breath and the confidence of knowing you care for your smile properly. So cosmetic dentistry can be a great investment in your oral health.
