Enhance Your Self-Esteem with Cosmetic Dentistry

Maintaining a beautiful smile and strong teeth are important, more than just their aesthetic benefits. Your oral health is affected by the attractiveness of your smile. Additionally, your self-esteem and how the rest of the world perceives you will also be influenced. It’s because a person’s smile is often the first thing that others notice about them.

In this article, we are going to discuss the different dental procedures to help you enhance your self-esteem through your smile.

1. Crown

This is the most frequently used dental procedure. It is placed over the top of a tooth to restore its original strength and appearance.

The crown of the tooth is designed and built by your dentist. Then, a mold is taken from the tooth. It is carefully dipped out, and then the tooth is sculpted for a perfect fit. The dentist will bond the crown to the healthy tooth to strengthen it and make it function as it should. 

Additionally, the crown of your tooth is designed to match the color of your teeth and its shape exactly. When you smile with a crown, the first thing that others notice is a beautiful, new smile.

2. Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin laminates bonded to the front of a tooth to give you a smile worthy of the envy of your friends and co-workers. They are a cosmetic procedure and are very popular among patients that don’t like the color of their own teeth. Veneers are also a good solution for patients that want to repair their teeth close to perfection.

Also, veneers are either made of dental porcelain or zirconium oxide. Veneers are made with a mold taken from your tooth and then ground down to the desired shape. They are then cemented to the front of your tooth so that your teeth will be the right color, size, and shape.

3. Bonding

Bonding is a procedure in which a resin and filler are applied to your teeth to make them appear smaller, whiter, or to fix chips. Your dentist will take a mold of the tooth and then shape the resin to match the original tooth. Then, it is cured with a special light for the final touches.

In addition, bonding can also be used to change the shape of your teeth or to fix the enamel layer of your teeth. The bonding procedure is permanent, so be sure that you like the regeneration results.

4. Teeth Whitening

This cosmetic dental procedure will give you a beautiful, bright smile. It is quickly performed in your dentist’s office, so it doesn’t take several visits. During your session, your dentist will clean your teeth and then apply a special gel. This gel contains a product that will gently bleach your teeth, making them look whiter.

Furthermore, teeth whitening gels and treatments come in various strengths so that your teeth can look just the way you want them to.

5. Dentures

Dentures are becoming more popular as people age. They can be made from different materials. Your dentist can create a denture that is custom-made for your mouth.

Moreover, the process of making a denture is lengthy, and the denture itself can be uncomfortable for some during the first few days. If you are missing several teeth and have the money to spend, dentures are a good alternative to implants.


A beautiful smile can have a substantial positive impact on your life. It can lead to more job opportunities, better social interactions, and higher self-esteem. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy to enhance your smile takes a little effort and commitment.
