What is cosmetic dentistry?

In order to achieve the very best results with cosmetic dentistry, it is important to look beyond a straight, white smile. For cosmetic dentistry in Charlottesville, your oral surgeon can assist you as you evaluate all of the components that make up your smile.

Many patients are surprised to learn that oral surgery can be extremely useful in achieving a balanced and beautiful smile.

Dental implants are a common solution for missing teeth. Your oral surgeon can evaluate your concerns and recommend dental implants to dramatically improve your smile. By failing to replace missing teeth, the shape and youthful contours of your face can be changed as bone loss occurs. Using dental implants to replace those teeth can help to preserve your facial profile, prevent bone loss, and eliminate unpleasant spaces between the teeth.

Bone grafting is another common cosmetic solution in dentistry. Due to trauma, disease, or a congenital anomaly, the density and quality of the jaw bone can be compromised. Sometimes, by simply grafting or adding additional bone support, your oral surgeon can correct irregularities in the bone. This type of procedure can be used to restore boney areas that are visible when you smile. Bone grafts can also be used in conjunction with the dental implant procedure, to ensure the success of the implant.

Often, patients who have suffered trauma to the face and mouth will have a need for cosmetic dentistry. Although your oral surgeon is expertly trained in surgical and dental procedures to relieve pain and eliminate disease, they are also trained to yield the very best esthetic results. You can be assured that your oral surgeon is well-prepared to correct any damage to the face and oral cavity. In the process, you can walk away with a confident and beautiful smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is an amazing combination of science and art. It is a blend of technical skills and abstract thinking. You can trust your oral surgeon to utilize high level clinical expertise to create the beautiful smile that you deserve.
