Even with zero cavities, you still need routine dental care. However, today’s dentistry isn’t just about managing oral health problems. Through a qualified and experienced dental practice like Laughlin Dental, you can also benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dental care brightens and restores your smile while also correcting structural problems.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
While cosmetic dental care does improve your smile, it also fulfills other important oral health needs. Cosmetic dentists restore your oral structures, including gum issues and misaligned, missing, or chipped teeth. It’s also beneficial in helping people achieve a comfortable, fully functioning bite.
However, many patients seek cosmetic dentistry to achieve that brilliant white smile. While we offer teeth whitening services, Laughlin Dental goes beyond teeth whitening in providing a complete array of cosmetic services patients need, such as:
- Dental implants
- Smile makeovers
- Teeth straightening
If you experience embarrassment, discomfort, or problems with normal oral functioning, such as during eating, drinking or smiling, cosmetic dentistry may meet your needs. Modern options for dental correction provide many ways to give you the smile and bite you deserve.
General Dentistry vs. Cosmetic Dentistry
A general dentist simply manages, diagnoses, and treats your teeth and gums. A cosmetic dentist provides a broader array of services. The best thing about Laughlin Dental is that we focus on both areas. Instead of just managing your oral structures as they exist, your cosmetic dentist upgrades your smile and bite to their very best.
Your Laughlin Dental team performs cosmetic surgeries and uses therapies unique to cosmetic dentists. All of these services require special training and years of experience under a special license. Dr. Laughlin and his team of professionals use their expertise to give you the smile of your dreams.
As a cosmetic dental team, the oral healthcare providers of Laughlin Dental know that a bright white, straight smile is popular today. But the cosmetic dental field is not new. In fact, cosmetic dentistry has been a specialized field for over 20 years. This type of dentistry is becoming more known because a cosmetic dentist can improve your smile, self-confidence and lifestyle as a whole.
People with alignment or appearance problems find the help they need through a cosmetic dentist’s services. A cosmetic dentist can straighten misaligned teeth, correct your jaw line, fix crowded teeth or simply provide you with a youthful smile. Lumineers, Invisalign, and other dental solutions are available through your cosmetic dentist.
