There was a time when people had little they could do to improve the looks of their smiles, particularly if they like to smoke cigarettes and stained their teeth with nicotine. But modern dentistry has improved to such a level that cosmetic teeth whitening treatments are highly effective and very affordable. Most dental insurance policies as well as dental plans will provide some level of coverage for teeth whitening procedures and other types of cosmetic dentistry to help patients improve how their smiles look while also helping to make their oral health better. When people feel good about their smiles, they tend to take better care of their teeth to help keep their smiles looking their best.
Teeth Whitening is Highly Popular
Because it is affordable even when paying out of the pocket, many people find it very beneficial to have teeth whitening done. In less than 45 minutes and many times less than that, modern whitening methods can brighten smiles by many shades. Those who generally take good care of their teeth will see results after only a short time while those who have allowed their teeth to become yellowed, stained with nicotine or otherwise deteriorate from their originally pristine white condition will take longer but still will see even more drastic improvements.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Improved Oral Health
Teeth whitening is the most popular form or cosmetic dentistry, and crowns are one of the most common forms of reconstruction. Once mostly relegated to gold teeth for crowns due to the lack of irritation from pure gold, porcelain later became a common crown and now new CEREC crowns offer faster and more affordable cosmetic dentistry that also makes it easier to eat solid foods. Other cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneers and gum grafts, also help to protect teeth while also improving smiles.
