Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ provides a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. We find that there are still some misconceptions about what cosmetic dentistry is all about, so we’re using this blog post to dispel these myths.
Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile
Many cosmetic dental procedures are not, in fact, solely cosmetic. Procedures such as dental implants prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.
Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth
Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many advantages over bridges. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.
Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Teeth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution
At Wildflower Dental, we offer our patients teeth whitening treatments that are more effective than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide the same results, and can often lead to uneven coloring.
Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.
Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth
Braces are often part of a dental makeover for teens and adults alike. But if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a brilliant smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer speedy results!
