Do people often tell you that you have a beautiful smile? Or do you rarely smile because of the condition of your teeth? According to a study conducted by Wakefield Research and commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO), over one-third of all Americans are unhappy with their smile. Many believe that they would have a better social life if they had better teeth, and a small percentage are convinced they would even have a better job if their smile was nicer.

Fortunately for this unhappy group of Americans, there is hope for a better life with cosmetic dentistry. Drs. Coleman A. Dow and VeneersDouglas N. Dow of Dow Dental in Springfield, OR would be delighted to help you solve your dental conundrum!

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Unlike traditional dentistry, which deals with concerns such as oral hygiene, cavities, and gum disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetic improvement of a person's teeth and mouth. Cosmetic dentistry is an optional service that can provide great benefits. Some of these are restorative, such as the replacement of bad teeth with implants made of composite materials or porcelain. Other treatments, such as Invisalign, can improve the smile by correcting the positioning of the teeth.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry a Worthwhile Investment?

Cosmetic dentistry not only improves the smile, but can be very cost-effective. Advancements in dentistry allow for the use of materials that are strong and durable, lasting longer than treatments in the past. A smile makeover is comfortable and convenient and can be performed right in the dental office. If you are a part of the percentage that believe your smile is the problem with your social life, then you owe it to yourself to give cosmetic dentistry a try.

Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of solutions for people unhappy with their smile. Dow Dental in Springfield, OR can make it happen for you as they have for many others. Call to schedule a consultation today!
