A damaged, unsightly or unhealthy smile can affect nearly every aspect of your life. Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA, cosmetic dentistrydentist Dr. Timothy Bui explains how you can benefit from cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Treatments improve your ability to bite and chew

When teeth are damaged or missing, it can be very difficult to tear, bite, chew and grind foods. If you can't take a bite of a carrot or chew a piece of chicken, you may decide that a softer diet is a better choice. Although a soft diet may prevent you from feeling hungry, it might not offer the vitamins and minerals you need for good health. Luckily, damaged teeth can be restored with bonding or crowns, while dentures, bridges and dental implants offer effective solutions if you've lost teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments improve your appearance

No matter how carefully you try to hide dental issues, sooner or later you have to open your mouth. Cosmetic treatments can help you feel more confident if chips, cracks, obvious decay, crooked teeth or other issues affect your smile. Veneers, bonding, crowns and tooth-colored fillings correct the dental problems that can contribute to lower self-esteem.

Although stains may not affect the function or health of your teeth, discolored teeth can make you feel very self-conscious. Whether you choose professional teeth whitening in our Newport Beach or Garden Grove office or veneers, thin porcelain shells applied to the fronts of teeth, cosmetic treatments can whiten and transform your smile.

Treatments offer long-lasting benefits

Removing decayed portions of teeth and replacing them with tooth-colored fillings, inlays or onlays restores the function and appearance of your teeth. Prompt treatment of cavities also helps you avoid extensive dental treatments or root canals in the future.

Removable full dentures, a popular restoration option, can reduce facial sagging common after tooth loss and improve your ability to chew. Dental implants and implant-supported dentures offer a long-term solution to tooth loss. Implants replace missing roots and bond to your jawbone. Thanks to their superior strength, they provide a very stable foundation for the dental crowns you'll use to chew.
