The term “Cosmetic dentistry” refers to any dental work that is done specifically for the purpose of improving your teeth’s or your overall appearance. While dental practitioners are always interested in the health of your teeth, in cosmetic dentistry we are also specifically concerned with the improvement of your appearance with a better looking smile, while maintaining or improving the health of all your teeth as well.
The appearance of your teeth greatly affects the appearance of your smile, and a beautiful healthy smile can help you to make a positive first impression on people you meet. Also, having your teeth looking even and beautiful can improve your confidence in smiling and give you a reason to smile and to want to show off your teeth. Patients of cosmetic dentistry report that after their treatment, they felt much more comfortable, confident and relaxed about smiling or showing their teeth, and much less self-conscious about their smile.
Whether you have severe dental issues or problems requiring extensive correction, or relatively minor issues such as a single chipped tooth, Minneapolis Dental and doctors Hodd and Wu are here to help you achieve the even, beautiful smile that you want. There are many cosmetic dentistry procedures which can be done to assist you, such as porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, bonding, dental implants, teeth whitening, and more, depending on the specific condition of your teeth and your own priorities and preferences.
We will listen to your goals, needs and concerns, and then tailor a cosmetic dentistry treatment program that will be geared toward achieving what you want to accomplish in your dental health and in the appearance of your smile.
