Our teeth are one of the most noticeable attributes on our bodies. They are essential when it comes to eating, but they are just as important in helping us to communicate. Our smile can be an appealing feature when it comes to your personal or professional encounters, but what if you lack confidence in showing your smile?
If you suffer from discolored, damaged, or missing teeth and you feel embarrassed by their appearance, you may become less social to avoid judgment or steer clear of questions about your oral health. If this is the case, consulting with Brechon Dental may be life changing as we identify a cosmetic procedure for you in restoring the beauty of your teeth and the confidence in your smile.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Brechon Dental and our patients who have undergone cosmetic dental procedures will agree, there are valuable benefits to achieving an aesthetically pleasing smile. Some of the most popular benefits of cosmetic dentistry include:
- Your teeth are natural looking.
- The protection of your existing teeth.
- The correction and balance of your bite.
- The improved and increased function of the teeth.
- A decreased risk of decay and infection.
- The increased strength of your teeth and bones.
- The decreased wear and tear on your teeth.
In addition to these benefits, your confidence will increase when you realize you no longer need to hide your smile. You will not have to explain why your teeth are missing, broken, or not as white as they should be. Your smile becomes that invaluable asset once again.

What Cosmetic Procedure Is Right for You?
There are a few contributing factors to consider when pursuing cosmetic dentistry. Not all procedures will be appropriate for you, and you may have severe dental concerns that might eliminate treatments from the onset. Before we can perform any cosmetic dentistry on you, the health and integrity of your bone, teeth, and gums must all be evaluated.
To begin creating your personalized treatment plan, we start with a consultation appointment. At this visit, Brechon Dental will complete several examinations to evaluate your mouth in its current state. These exams might include:
- A comprehensive Oral Exam
- X-rays, the types and number depending on the specific need
- Bite Analysis and a TMJ Analysis
- Periodontal (gum) and oral cancer exam
After these required exams are finished, we will create a cosmetic treatment plan to achieve your desired smile. You may require more extensive restorations due to loss of functionality or spread of disease or decay resulting in extractions.
If you have healthy teeth you may only be looking for a restoration option that covers abnormally shaped teeth or stains. When it comes to cosmetic dental procedures, every patient is unique. Therefore, it is essential for cosmetic dental plans to be tailored to your individual circumstances to achieve the best possible result.
What Cosmetic Procedures Are Available?
Depending on your specific needs, there are several restoration options for teeth that can improve the appearance of your smile. Some of these options include:
- Dental Bonding
- Dental Implants
- Porcelain Crowns
- Tooth Contouring/Reshaping
- Lumineers (no-prep veneers)
- Dental Bridges
- Root Canals
Choosing a restoration procedure appropriate to meet your goals and dental needs is best decided with the professional guidance from Brechon Dental. Making a consultation appointment with us to create a personalized treatment plan and to review the available restoration options is the best way to determine if cosmetic dentistry is beneficial for your smile.
How Long Will Cosmetic Dentistry Take?
The length of each cosmetic procedure will vary. If you require multiple restoration steps, the process of restoring your healthy smile may take some time. With dental technology improving constantly, the process of completing most cosmetic procedures continues to become more efficient.
As an example, tooth replacement used to take weeks and months to successfully complete. Now Brechon Dental can replace teeth safely and effectively the same day. Each patient will differ in the procedures they qualify for.
