What is cosmetic dentistry?

When choosing a cosmetic dentistry treatment in Panama, it is best to choose professionals with proven experience and a history of good results.

Cosmetic dentistry is also known as esthetic dentistry. It can be defined as a specialty of dentistry that focuses on providing solutions to oral and dental problems that impair the appearance and oral health of people.

Dentists themselves define it as the method of dentistry that improves the smile and dental image of patients. Having a beautiful smile and healthy teeth is essential for many reasons, as oral health has an aesthetic impact and is related to overall good health.

An attractive smile, or lack thereof, affects your oral health. It also affects your self-esteem and the way the world perceives you. This is because a person’s smile is usually the first characteristic that others notice, that is, the smile is our letter of introduction.

Common cosmetic procedures include veneers and teeth whitening. On the other hand, there are dental crowns, bridges, bonding, implants, inlays, onlays, dentures, among other restorative dental treatments.

It is also estimated that more than 75% of cosmetic dentistry patients are women.

Why should you choose to have a cosmetic dentistry procedure?

Cosmetic dentistry procedures can correct misshapen, chipped, discolored, missing teeth, and crowding or spacing. On the other hand, it is also an option to correct various gum problems.

Within cosmetic dentistry there are from simple solutions to sophisticated procedures to fix a smile, depending on the patient's desired outcome and the severity of the case. According to experts, there are many reasons why an individual may not be happy with his or her smile. For example, the most common causes are tooth discoloration, dental overcrowding and gaps between teeth.

Dental veneers are the most requested treatment, as they can correct all the cosmetic problems mentioned above. Again, it should be emphasized that it is important to look for dentists who are qualified in the specific area of treatment you are seeking.

You should keep in mind that all dentists learn cosmetic techniques in dental schools. But some of them invest more time and money in continuing education for cosmetic dentistry, making them better equipped practitioners than a dentist who has not made the same investment. Therefore, finding a dentist who focuses on cosmetic procedures ensures that you will receive the highest quality treatment.

Types of cosmetic dentistry procedures

Cosmetic dental treatments are commonly referred to as “smile design procedures”. In particular, there are some cosmetic procedures to choose from depending on individual needs:

Tooth whitening

Whitening treatments include over-the-counter treatments, in-office whitening treatments and intensive treatments with customized impressions. In-office whitening is the most effective treatment for correcting teeth with discoloration problems, according to dental experts. In short, it is a multi-step whitening treatment that requires a minimum of two weeks to see results.

Dental veneers and their role in cosmetic dentistry

Veneers improve the appearance of chipped, discolored, misshapen or crooked teeth. There are also a few different types of veneers to choose from. For example, porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth using a special cement and require polishing the contour for a natural result. Veneers provide excellent esthetic results, which is why many patients prefer them over teeth whitening products and orthodontic treatments.

Orthodontic appliances (braces) and clear retainers are treatments that are also considered cosmetic in nature. This is because most people who invest in these treatments, such as invisalign, do so to improve their appearance. In some cases, orthodontic appliances or aligners may be medically necessary.

Both devices work by pressing on the teeth, which moves them into the correct positions over time. Children and adolescents often get traditional metal braces, while adults often get braces and retainers that are less noticeable.

Gum contouring treatment

Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that changes the shape of the gums. During the procedure, a dentist cuts away any excessive gum tissue that is causing a “gummy” smile. A gummy smile is when a person has too much gum tissue above their upper teeth.

Contouring can also be used to restore exposed teeth caused by receding gum tissue.

With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from basic color correction to replacing missing teeth, and everything in between. There are a wide variety of options available to improve your dental function and the appearance of your smile.

Ideally, you should take your case to a professional and start the appropriate treatment according to your problem. We remind you to choose the best cosmetic dentistry in Panama. This way, you can be sure that your oral problem will be solved with an adequate treatment and in a reasonable period of time. Investing in your oral health and appearance is not a superficial way out; on the contrary, it is a solution that can open many doors and help you feel better about yourself.
