Almost nothing is as powerful as a great smile: it can charm, disarm, arrest, and suggest. But if you are living with a damaged or less than perfect smile, it can also be a point of insecurity and even shame. But whether you were born with a less than perfect smile, or the flaws came as the result of age or accident, cosmetic dentistry offers the promise of lasting change.

If your smile is suffering, it can be discouraging. It might be a chipped tooth or deep stains, but whatever the problem might be, you can trust Dr. Mary Lewis and the entire team at Virginia Beach Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to help repair your smile and restore your confidence.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry tackles mainly aesthetic issues, which means basically anything that can help improve your smile and restore confidence. Focus on both aesthetic problems and also impacts the function of your teeth.

Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services include:

  • Invisalign
  • Composite bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Tooth replacement

Cosmetic Dentistry Facts

  • Almost three-fourths of adults, or 74% to be precise, feel an unattractive smile can hurt their career
  • About 32% of people are concerned with how their teeth look
  • Unlike over the counter teeth whitening products, your cosmetic dentist will tailor services for you and your teeth. As a result, professional teeth whitening usually lasts longer and is more effective than over the counter products.
  • Cosmetic dentists can help prevent accidental gum bleaching
  • At least 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth

More than Just Aesthetics

While it is true that cosmetic dentistry is about cosmetics, people often underestimate the effect it can have on your level of confidence and overall well being. You would be amazed what you can accomplish when you aren’t worried about what other people might be thinking about your teeth (or lack thereof).
