Dallas Cosmetic Dentistry from the Pros
People are visual creatures. It has been that way since the dawn of time. From Helen of Troy to the latest Hollywood ingénue, human beings are moved by a pretty face. There is no need to deny it. Beauty has motivated men and women to move mountains and to write the most remarkable words in history. But beauty is not fair. Only a precious few are considered much fairer or more handsome than their peers, and society rewards these fortunate individuals.
We know for a fact that handsome men and beautiful women are lucky in love, more successful in their careers, and generally much happier and more self-confident than those who are seen or consider themselves less physically unattractive. There is, however, a way to address these issues
Both men and women agree that a nice smile is one of the most important physical assets a person can possess. Not only is it attractive to look at, but a nice smile is also very hard to fake. And like a picture, it says at least a thousand words. It lets others know what we are thinking, feeling, and more. When a person is self-conscious about his or her smile, it often has a dramatic effect upon their mood, behavior, and how they carry themselves.
Few people are blessed with perfect teeth that require no correction over a lifetime. Braces and retainers may be used to improve function, but they also correct aesthetics. In that way, they are cosmetic devices. A cosmetic dentist is different from a general dentist in that he focuses on common cosmetic problems, rather than functional ones. Instead of filling cavities and performing root canals, he fills gaps in teeth (diastemas) and works to whiten them. In fact, teeth bleaching or whitening is the single most popular procedure performed by cosmetic dentists.
They also deal with structural issues, such as implanting dentures, bridges, and crowns. These are procedures some general dentists also offer, but only cosmetic dentists are just as concerned with form as they are with function.
