Misconceptions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Misconceptions About Cosmetic Dentistrymisconceptions about cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is easily the most popular form of dentistry in the nation. People are always looking for ways to improve their mouths, repair chipped teeth, and brighten their smiles. While cosmetic dentistry is a highly sought-after form of dental repair, there are several misconceptions about it that may give it a bad name. Our Springfield dentists at Chesterfield Family Dental offer insight into the common myths about cosmetic dentistry to give you a better understanding of the benefits of this type of dentistry.

Cosmetic Means Unnecessary

The biggest hurdle that cosmetic dentists should overcome is with the word “cosmetic” itself. To many people, cosmetic refers to appearance, aesthetics, and overall beauty. While cosmetic dentistry offers many procedures and tools that can improve one’s aesthetic look, there are many necessary procedures under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry as well. Materials such as porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, and implants are made to not only improve the look of the mouth, but its functionality as well. There are a lot of ways that people suffer from broken, chipped, or missing teeth. Cosmetic dental products can help make the mouth run more smoothly.

Cosmetic Dentistry is Painful

A lot of people assume that cosmetic dental procedures will inflict pain and take a long time to recover from. This is a common misconception that can be easily debunked through the idea that patients are constantly seeking cosmetic improvements. With most procedures, it is unlikely that you will experience any pain or damage to the mouth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Looks Bad

There are some horror stories online that share botched cosmetic dentistry procedures, making it seem like every procedure will produce extremely negative results. Fortunately, technology has advanced to a point where most cosmetic procedures look natural and virtually undetectable. To the average person, it won’t look like you have had any dental work done at all.

Stop hiding your smile and enhance your inner beauty through an advanced cosmetic procedure. Procedures can be affordable, painless, and result in a good-looking mouth.

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
