Often when people think of what it means to have a perfect smile, the first thing that comes to mind is the cosmetic beauty of straight, white teeth. While the aesthetics of a perfect smile are a great motivator to fix your teeth, there are many more benefits beyond that shiny, white enamel.
Here at Dental Studios, with two convenient locations in Summit and Westfield, New Jersey, our expert dentists and skilled team of hygienists and certified assistants explain how a perfect smile saves your teeth in both appearance and in health.
What a “perfect smile” means to you
For many people, having a perfect smile doesn’t necessarily mean committing to extensive dental work for a complete oral overhaul. If you’ve got a good set of choppers and you’ve been taking care of them, a perfect smile may simply mean continuing along the path of regular checkups and an exemplary at-home oral care routine.
If this is the case for you, regular dental checkups and professional cleanings help you keep your teeth beautiful and healthy for years to come. And should a problem arise, our dentists can detect it early and recommend the most effective course of action. In other words, a proactive preventive dental plan may be all you need for your best oral health and a perfect smile.
However, if you’ve had some common dental problems — such as cavities, decay, or a knocked-out tooth — you may need a more extensive dental plan to achieve your goal of a flawless smile. The good news is that here at Dental Studios, we provide all of the general and cosmetic dentistry treatments you need to bring your oral health up to par for a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile.
How cosmetic dentistry saves your teeth
If your teeth could benefit from professional dental work, our extensive list of cosmetic dentistry services improves the aesthetics of your teeth and also helps your whole mouth — and ultimately your whole body — become healthier. Some of the common dental issues we address with a customized plan include:
- Crooked and crowded teeth
- Missing teeth
- Yellowing teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
When we address these issues with appropriate treatments like dental implants, clear aligners, or veneers, you improve your oral health and get a more perfect smile at the same time. For example, crooked or missing teeth can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss, or even gum disease. When our dentists recommend treatment to correct common dental issues, they’re also improving the health and function of your teeth.
When it comes to a perfect smile, cosmetic dental procedures can help:
- Make it easier to brush and floss your teeth
- Prevent future dental problems
- Prevent teeth from shifting out of place
- Make it easier to chew food
- Reduce your risk of gum disease
Creating a perfect smile on the outside can certainly help you have a more beautiful smile that goes well below the surface of your teeth.
Beyond cosmetic procedures
If your perfect smile requires starting from the inside out, we offer an array of services to repair and restore your teeth and gums, including:
We also offer the option of sedation dentistry so your journey to a perfect smile isn’t filled with anxiety surrounding dental visits.
