Form Follows Function: Building a Beautiful Smile
- Posted on: Feb 15 2017
The saying the form follows function is one that many of us have heard. It pertains to some structural mechanisms, and it also relates to the true beauty of the smile. When your Clyde cosmetic dentist sets out to bring the elegance of your smile to the forefront, treatment will follow a full assessment of the overall health of your teeth and gums.
When a tooth or teeth are chipped, cracked, or broken, there may be more than aesthetics that needs to be addressed. A damaged tooth could also affect your eating and speaking ability. If the problem is tooth loss, subsequent consequences such as misalignment could occur. Any of these issues could negatively impact the function of the bite, and the smile as a whole. There are a few simple ways that the function of your smile can be restored to maximize cosmetic dentistry. These include inlays or inlays, dental bonding, or dental implants. The bite may also function better after a course of cosmetic orthodontics (Six Month Smiles).
Teeth and gums that are optimally healthy are the ideal bases for cosmetic dental treatments. Common procedures that are used to help our patients rejuvenate and perfect their smiles include teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Each of these processes can be completed in a short time frame, sometimes a single visit.
When you want your smile to be something you are proud to share, the level of care you receive becomes paramount to the overall process. Your natural teeth are marked with tiny nuances that make them reflect light and that make them appear translucent around the edges, and opaque in the center. To beautifully enhance the smile without affecting authenticity means that these nuances must be replicated. An accredited cosmetic dentist like Dr. Highsmith has completed the extensive training that is required to address the smallest details of every smile makeover.
Your smile influences areas of your life such as your career and your social success. It affects your general sense of well-being. For those reasons, cosmetic dentistry is much more than a luxury. Learn more about how we can help you love your smile. Call (828) 627-9282.
