Dolton patients ask, “How can I find a cosmetic dentist near me?”
A healthy mouth is important for your overall health and wellness to be sure. It’s also important for your self-confidence. Most patients claim that their smile is their best feature, which is why it’s important to find a dentist who can not only treat the gums and teeth for dental wellness, but who also understands the difference that a great smile can make on a person’s overall self-esteem.
Dr. Dean Dietrich of Pleasant Dental® in Dolton, IL, understands that his patients want to look great and feel great. That’s why in addition to preventative dentistry services designed to keep problems at bay and restorative dentistry to fix any issues that may come up, Dr. Dietrich also offers several cosmetic dentistry services. It’s important to note that while some patients may seek dental treatment because they want to improve the appearance of their smiles; these services offer the added benefit of improving the health of the mouth as well.
One service that is both cosmetic and restorative is dental crowns. This treatment not only improves the appearance of a broken or damaged tooth, it also provides valuable support to the tooth and the mouth. A dental crown is simply a procedure that rebuilds the outside of the tooth. It can be used to fix a tooth that is broken or damaged due to trauma or one that is badly decayed, past the point where a simple dental filling would work.
A dental crown uses a composite filling that is white or tooth colored so that it blends in with the rest of your teeth. When you smile, people will notice the way your lips curl and your eyes sparkle, not a tooth that is unappealing.
Dental crowns can also be used to help replace a missing tooth as part of a crown and bridge appliance. In this case, the two teeth next to the space are fit with a crown and then the replacement tooth snaps in between them, thus, bridging the gap and improving the smile. Not only will the smile look better, the teeth that surround the area will remain securely in place.
