Have you ever been to a dentist at some point in your life? In all likelihood your answer to that question was probably a ‘yes’. However, cosmetic dentistry is significantly different than your generic dentist. Because of this, there are several misconceptions about cosmetic dentistry. We’ve listed three of the most common misconceptions about cosmetic dentistry.
1. It Must Be Too Expensive
Any services or procedures related to the aesthetics of my teeth must be expensive, right? Wrong. This misconception stems from the fact that, at one time in the past, cosmetic dentistry was a luxury that only the extremely wealthy could afford. However, due to technological advances over the years, that is no longer the case. With our advances in technology and our attractive finance plans here at Uptown Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is no longer a luxury for the rich.
2. Cosmetic Dentistry Only Deals With Aesthetics
While cosmetic dentistry does involve many aesthetic services and procedures, it also includes improving the functionality of your teeth. At Uptown Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry our primary goal is to provide our patients with a beautiful new smile and teeth that function properly. The bottom line is that most aesthetic procedures or services also improve the overall oral health of a patient. So, don’t buy into the myth that cosmetic dentistry doesn’t improve the health of your smile.
3. Cosmetic Dentistry is Limited to Dental Implants
Yes, cosmetic dentistry includes dental implants. In fact, dental implants are a major part of cosmetic dentistry. However, there is much more to cosmetic dentistry than dental implants. At Uptown Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry we offer services and procedures such as teeth whitening, treating TMD, veneers, crowns, full mouth reconstruction, All-on-Four procedures and much more. No matter your cosmetic dentistry needs, we have a procedure or a service that will leave you with a healthier and more beautiful smile.
