How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Promote Oral Health

By: Patricia Woloch

Caring for your oral health is one of the first steps to improving you overall health and general well-being. Your mouth is the gateway to your body, and if you have an unhealthy mouth toxins and infectious material can enter your bloodstream through your gums. Poor dental health is associated with lung or heart diseases as well as kidney damage.
Although cosmetic dentistry may seem superficial, most cosmetic procedures are linked to general dentistry and general dental health.
A Fix for Functional and Aesthetic Problems
Everyone can benefit from cosmetic dentistry and improvement not only for your aesthetic dental issues, but your functional problems as well.


For example, spaces between your teeth can create a speech impediment. If you are missing a tooth, you may have problems chewing, or you teeth may begin to shift to close that hole. Several missing teeth can result in changes to your bite, risk of TMJ disorders and a greater chance of tooth decay and gum disease.
Cosmetic dentists, like Dr. Alhadef, can also address gum-related problems through procedures like laser dentistry, or replace your old amalgam fillings with metal-free fillings that prevent teeth from cracking and provide structural support.
Smile with Confidence
There are also psychological problems you may face from an unattractive smile, like embarrassment or harassment from your peers. If you would like to smile, speak and eat with comfort, while increasing your confidence, cosmetic dentistry can be the answer you've been looking for.
