The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
More Than Just Aesthetics
The most obvious benefit of cosmetic dentistry is enhanced confidence. If you have cosmetic issues with your smile, you may feel self-conscious when speaking, eating, or smiling around others. Our treatments will enhance your self-esteem and give you a smile you’ll be proud to take care of. Cosmetic dentistry has benefits that reach beyond aesthetics. If you love your smile, you’ll be more likely to take care of it with proper oral health and hygiene. Straight, even teeth are also easier to brush and floss.
Reverse Stains & Yellowing
Teeth Whitening in South Philadelphia
We offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening. Our in-office whitening is performed by one of our dentists in just a 1 hour appointment, and provides the fastest results. Teeth whitening in South Philadelphia is a great option if you want to remove stains for an upcoming special occasion or event. We also offer custom-built take-home whitening kits that allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. This treatment provides more subtle, gradual results.
Enhance Shape & Color
Bonding, Shaping & Contouring
Dental bonding uses tooth-colored dental resin (similar to the resin used for tooth-colored fillings) to reshape and restore the appearance of your smile. The resin is applied directly to your tooth’s surface, then sculpted and trimmed until it looks just like a part of your natural smile. Shaping & contouring (also called enameloplasty) is often used alongside dental bonding. This treatment involves removing a very thin layer of enamel from your surrounding teeth to correct issues and improve your smile’s overall appearance.
Cover Up Imperfections
Veneers are designed to fit over your existing teeth after they have been trimmed and cover up the front chewing surfaces with a bright, tooth-like porcelain material. Since these thin prostheses cover up the front surfaces of your teeth, they can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic issues, including small gaps, severe stains, misshapen and chipped teeth. They are also very durable and stain-resistant, and have a lifespan of 15+ years. In just two quick appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks, you can completely restore your smile with veneers.
What Are The Benefits
Of Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry has a number of great benefits. First and foremost, it improves the appearance of your teeth dramatically. With cosmetic dentistry, you can cover up a wide variety of imperfections like stained teeth, chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, uneven and misshapen teeth, and so much more.
Your smile will look and feel natural, and provide you with more confidence when you smile, speak, laugh, and even eat among others. You won’t have to hide your teeth anymore, and you’ll enjoy enhanced self-esteem.
Not only that, but cosmetic dentistry can actually help enhance your oral health. Some treatments, like veneers, can strengthen your teeth and create a more even, properly aligned smile that’s easier to brush and floss properly.
In addition, you’re much more likely to brush and floss regularly and take proper care of your teeth when you’ve invested in cosmetic dentistry, since you’ll want to protect your investment and make sure your smile always stays looking its best!
How Many Office Visits
Will It Take To Improve My Smile?
This depends entirely on the types of treatments that are required to restore your smile, and how many different types of cosmetic dentistry treatments are needed to complete your treatment.
Teeth whitening, for example, only requires a single office visit to restore your smile, but patients with severe staining or sensitive teeth may need to schedule multiple whitening sessions. Dental bonding is typically done in one appointment, while porcelain veneers require at least 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks.
To find out how long your cosmetic makeover will take, contact Mestichelli Barnes Dental Associates for an appointment with Dr. Bill Mestichelli or Dr. Michael Barnes. After discussing your options for cosmetic dentistry, they can provide you with an accurate treatment timeline.
Why Investing In Your Smile
Is Worth It
Investing in your smile with cosmetic dentistry is worth every penny, and there are a few reasons why. First, you will be able to feel proud of your smile, and your new teeth will keep you feeling confident for years and decades to come. Most cosmetic treatments like veneers and bonding can last up to 10-15 years or longer, so your investment will pay off in the long-term.
A beautiful, brilliant smile is also completely indispensable when it comes to making first impressions in both your personal and professional life. Feeling confident and happy with your appearance can lead to a lot of new opportunities that you may miss out on if you don't like how your teeth look.
Finally, investing in your smile at Mestichelli Barnes Dental Associates is worth it because we’re dedicated to providing customized care that fits your budget and meets your expectations.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Barnes or Dr. Mestichelli will take the time to listen to your concerns, talk about your budget, and discuss your personal preferences for cosmetic treatment. This ensures that you get the perfect smile improvement plan that’s right for your own unique situation.
