As leaders in aesthetic dentistry in North Penn, Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry hears many different myths about cosmetic dental treatment.
Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile
Many cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Dental procedures such as tooth replacement prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.
Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth
Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many important advantages for patients. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Tooth implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.
Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution
We offer our dental patients teeth whitening treatments that are usually more effective than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide the best results and can often lead to uneven coloring.
Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.
Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth
Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our teen and adult patients. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a brilliant smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer quick results!
