Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Cane Bay Family Dentistry
Myths About Cosmetic DentistryMore and more people are looking into cosmetic dentistry because its treatments offer them the chance to restore their teeth's original beauty. Many celebrities are endorsing teeth whitening products such as home kits that help them get ready before a premier or a big date. While brushing and flossing are still at the top of the list, a few correction procedures allow you to maintain your oral health better.

If your tooth got chipped in an accident, getting a porcelain veneer will fix this problem right up. At Cane Bay Family Dentistry, and do all kinds of cosmetic dentistry procedures in a safe manner. In case you are stopping yourself from getting colored fillings because your colleague told you that it's not good for your teeth, let us clear the air.

Following are a couple of myths about cosmetic dentistry that you have believed for too long:

Myth 1: Cosmetic Dentistry Is Quite Expensive

Fact: Cosmetic dentistry is covered under dental insurance. Yes, the procedures tend to be a little more costly than the standard ones, but in the long run, they save you a lot of money.

Myth 2: Cosmetic Dental Procedures Don't Give a Natural Look

Fact: Thanks to technology, you can now easily get veneers and fillings that match your teeth to a T. People won't be able to tell you got work done on your teeth.

Myth 3: Teeth Whitening Can Damage Your Teeth

Fact: It depends on who is doing it. Teeth whitening kits don't suit all people. If your teeth are weak due to cavities, using a whitening kit will erode your enamel and cause irritated gums. So, better consult a dentist to get it done the right way.

Myth 4: Cosmetic Dentistry Is Only Good for Cookie-Cutter Smiles

Fact: Who doesn't love a bright smile? Having said that, cosmetic dentistry delivers more than just white teeth! It goes one step further and makes sure that all your teeth are perfectly aligned by straightening them and hiding flaws.
