If you are not lucky enough to have perfectly straight, white, natural teeth, then you may feel as though you cannot be as confident as you should be. You may even feel jealous of those who have perfect teeth when you see these people laughing, joking, eating and drinking with complete confidence.
If you have ever felt like your teeth are letting you down, then you may be interested in getting in contact with a professional cosmetic dentist, such as Dr. Shojania, who runs his own highly reputable cosmetic dentist in San Diego. As well as being a skilled San Diego cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ali Shojania is also highly competent in the field of general dentistry.
If you choose to visit a cosmetic dentist, then they will first carry out an initial consultation, where you will be able to discuss all of your dental wants and needs. At the initial consultation, your dentist will also be able to assess the current state of your oral health and make notes on any areas of your mouth which could be changed or improved using modern cosmetic dentistry techniques. A good dentist will also be able to offer you completely impartial advice, which will allow you to make a fully informed decision about any treatments that you are considering.
The scope of cosmetic dentistry has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, as new and improved techniques have emerged, and these procedures have become more accessible to ordinary people. Many of the costs which are associated with some of the now-standard cosmetic dental procedures have fallen, so more and more people are able to take advantages of what is available to them. However, if you are still worried about costs, your cosmetic dentist will be able to offer you a comprehensive quote and advice on financing when you attend your initial consultation session.
Many different procedures fall under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry, including the option to have full mouth reconstruction surgery. Although this can take more than one session, and may last for a few months in total, many of those who opt for the procedure are astounded by the positive effect that it can have on their lives. As well as helping to make you look great, a full mouth reconstruction can also make it a lot easier for you to eat and drink comfortably. If you only need a few of your natural teeth replacing, then you could plump for the latest forms of the dental implant instead.
However, procedures do not have to be as extensive or invasive as a full mouth reconstruction or dental implants. Smaller, non-invasive procedures, such as Invisalign invisible braces are also a hugely popular form of cosmetic dentistry. These amazing braces are almost impossible to see, but they will help to realign your natural teeth in the same way that traditional braces do. These braces are the perfect choice for both adults and teenagers who are suffering from crooked or misaligned teeth.
