Understanding Your Desire to Change Your Smile
We take the time to get to know each patient and the goals that the patient has for his or her smile. This process often involves correcting a problem with how a particular tooth, or teeth, appear. Thanks to modern dental techniques, we can help patients to accomplish these goals in a painless method that produces dramatic results. Gone are the days where people have to live with a smile that they do not like or are embarrassed to show off. Even people with crooked, damaged, or stained teeth can experience the stunning transformations available when working with Edward F. Pergiovanni, D.M.D. and Mary L. Pergiovanni, D.M.D..
We work with adults of all ages and commonly hear that older patients feel like it is too late to improve their smile. It is never too late to receive cosmetic dental care. Adults of all ages are delighted to find that there are many ways to restore their damaged teeth and replace missing ones. While, in years past, there may have been very few options available for replacing missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry has opened the door to solutions that are permanent, durable, and natural looking. To find out what procedures will work best for you, call (860) 721-9002 and schedule a consultation.
According to the American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry, the top cosmetic dental treatments are:
- Teeth Whitening — Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure for lightening (bleaching) teeth.
- Dental Bonding — Dental bonding is an option for fixing a broken tooth, chipped tooth or cracked teeth.
- Dental Implants — Dental implants are considered by some to be more attractive than dentures for replacing missing teeth.
- Dental Veneers — Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed for closing gaps or disguising stained teeth that don’t respond well to whitening treatments.
A new study shows that a great smile can make you 20% more attractive and people with beautiful smiles make, on average, 12% more money each year.
The Truth About Cosmetic Dentistry
Some people hear the word cosmetic and assume that we only treat people that are looking to create a Hollywood smile. The cosmetic field of dentistry involves much more than creating a stunning appearance. It is true that most Hollywood stars use cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smile, but these procedures accomplish far more than that.
Beyond basic cosmetic procedures aimed at changing a person's appearance, cosmetic dental procedures can restore the functionality of teeth and the self-confidence of our patients. We can help people after they damage their teeth in an accident. The American Dental Association reports that the majority of adults that damage their teeth, do so while playing sports. Thus, anyone can have a tooth break or chip at any time – regardless of how careful they are. Car wrecks, accidents at home, and workplace injuries are additional ways to damage teeth. When one does damage a tooth, it is important to visit a dentist that understands how to restore teeth in a natural way.
How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist: Do not let cosmetic dental prices guide your choice in a dentist. A cheaper rate for cosmetic dental services may not necessarily mean better services. Review a dentist and the website to see what services they offer. Also, verify credentials and look up to see what background information you can find on the dentist.
Rocky Hill, Connecticut Cosmetic Dentist
We can make restorations that appear so natural, no one can tell that there are artificial teeth in the patient's smile. This can be a lifesaver for people that want to live an active lifestyle and maintain the appearance they had prior to the accident. We do, however, recommend that if you damaged your tooth, you call 860-721-9002 to schedule an appointment right away. The faster you can come into our dental office, the more options you will have for restoring the damaged tooth. This is especially true if you had a tooth fall out and are trying to save it.
Cosmetic dentistry has also improved preventative care and how people are treated overall. In the past, old fashioned metal tools were used for everything. Now, as a cosmetic dentists, we look for ways to improve the patient experience and leverage technology in order to do so. By identifying ways to improve the experience of every patient, the team at Family Dental Care of Rocky Hill continue to make visiting the dentist easier and more enjoyable. From painless teeth cleanings to performing major dental work in comfort, we make the patients our top priority.
The second most common disease in the United States is cavities. The first is the common cold. Ask us about esthetic filling options.
Our team understands that when patients have healthy teeth, their teeth will be less likely to sustain damage or fall out. With over 70 percent of U.S. adults experiencing some form of tooth loss, preventative care is crucial to overall oral health. We recommend that patients schedule an appointment with our local Rocky Hill office for a teeth cleaning at least twice a year. During these regular appointments, we can remove surface stains, bacteria, and plaque that like to hide in hard to reach places. We can also look for signs of gum disease and cavities to treat the signs right away. Keeping teeth healthy is important because healthy teeth are strong teeth, and strong teeth are at less of a risk for falling out.
While we are passionate about using cosmetic dentistry as a way to create a beautiful and perfect smile, taking the time to focus on preventative care is something that we are equally passionate about. The entire staff at Family Dental Care of Rocky Hill takes the time to educate patients about what they can do at home to stay in good oral health. As a result, we are able to help reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease in patients. Sometimes, taking these few extra minutes can make a positive impact on our patients' oral health.
