Cosmetic Dentistry Atlanta: What You Need to Know

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, Atlanta dentists warn against some incorrect online information.

This misinformation may discourage people from turning to cosmetic dentistry. Unfortunately, this means they won't be able to get the superstar smile they've been dreaming of!

We want to dispel any fiction about these procedures. So we've decided to tackle some of the most common myths in the following article.

Cosmetic Dentistry Is Expensive

Short answer: it isn't. The law of supply and demand tells us products and services high in demand will drop in price.

It certainly applies for cosmetic dentistry; Atlanta dentists are much sought after.

People will always be looking into new ways to get whiter teeth or fix their smile with veneers. The good news is the technology has advanced enough for faster and safer procedures.

Besides, you can always discuss customized options with your dentist and find something suited for your budget.

After all, not everyone's situation is the same. And neither should the price tag.

Cosmetic Dentistry Is Painful

Another lie spread by the uninformed or those scared of a simple dental cleaning.

Of course, there will be people with extreme anxieties about the procedure. It's only natural.

What isn't a healthy practice is to avoid procedures you'll benefit from just because there might be some pain involved.

As we've mentioned, the techniques and technology have advanced. There are different types and levels of sedation available today.

If you want to turn to cosmetic dentistry, Atlanta dentists Drescher & Cohen will make sure to minimize all discomfort.

The Outcome Doesn't Look Natural

Veneers may not have looked very natural ten years ago. Now, however, dentists can literally create teeth that look 100% real. 

Dental fillings, veneers, and others are modeled to fit the overall aesthetic of your mouth.

Recent whitening techniques also manage to give people's teeth a beautiful white sheen. You'll look good enough to star in a Colgate commercial!

As such, you shouldn't worry about one of your teeth looking out of place to onlookers.

Only the Vain Choose Cosmetic Dentistry - Atlanta Dentists Say Otherwise

You can somewhat understand the logic behind this myth. Why would anyone pay for a cosmetic dentistry procedure if it doesn't serve a health-related purpose?

To some, it feels like a vain thing to do. Whitening your teeth just to show off to your friends?

But those who spread this misinformation fail to look at the bigger picture. Here's why cosmetic dentistry can be good for your health:

  • Whiter teeth boost your confidence. To some people, the small boost is enough to get them through a stressful day.
  •  It's especially useful for people with social anxiety. One less thing to be anxious about!
  • If your teeth are misaligned, orthodontics can fix that. It ensures your teeth don't suffer wear damage.
  • Implants can be used to preserve the facial bone structure and make you look young.

With all those medical benefits, how can anyone say cosmetic dentistry isn't useful?

Would you like to have a whiter, healthier smile? Want to receive an immediate boost of confidence?

Give us a call today and we can schedule an appointment. We'll have a look at your situation and recommend the best course of action.
