Cosmetic Q & A

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialty that’s geared towards improving the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Whereas general dentistry aims to make your smile as healthy as possible, cosmetic dentistry works towards making your smile as beautiful as possible. 

Why should I get cosmetic treatments?

Your mouth is more than just a functional tool for eating and speaking; it’s also a reflection of who you are and your personal calling card for interacting with the world.

Cosmetic imperfections can make you feel embarrassed about your smile, holding you back from sharing it with others and eroding your self-esteem. 

Cosmetic dentistry restores your confidence in your smile, turning it from a source of shame to a source of pride. With cosmetic dentistry, you’ll be excited to share your smile with the world, improving your mood and the mood of everybody around you.

What are veneers?

Veneers are one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry, and an incredibly easy and effective way to improve the look of your smile. They’re thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently affixed to the front-facing portion of your visible teeth. 

Veneers effectively mask any cosmetic imperfections on your teeth, giving you a beautifully uniform and flawless smile. 

Because veneers are made from porcelain, which has a similar color and translucency as natural tooth enamel, your veneers will blend in seamlessly with your smile and look as natural as they do beautiful.

What other cosmetic services are there?

Gentle Breeze Family Dentistry offers a wide range of other services that can help improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem, such as Botox® and Juvéderm®.

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable that’s used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face, specifically frown lines, crow’s-feet, and forehead wrinkles. It works by blocking the transmission of chemical signals between your nerves and muscles, effectively limiting your muscles’ ability to move and create folds in the skin that cause wrinkles.

Juvederm is an FDA-approved filler that’s used to enhance contours, fill in wrinkles, plump up your lips, and much more. It’s a serum made out of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that stimulates your body’s production of collagen. Collagen keeps your skin plump and volumized, giving you a fuller and more youthful appearance. 

Both Botox and Juvederm are administered in a quick and easy office visit that has minimal downtime. Many people actually schedule their appointments on their lunch breaks and go back to work afterward.

Your dentist simply marks off the areas to be treated and uses a syringe to deliver a few injections of the serum. The whole process takes less than an hour.
