cosmetic dentistry

At Heroes Dental & Orthodontics, we know that your smile is important. It’s one of the first things people will notice about you, so you’ll want to have the confidence to show off those dazzling pearly whites.

If you aren’t completely satisfied with your smile just yet, there’s no need to worry. Heroes Dental & Orthodontics offers cosmetic dentistry solutions for all your needs.

While many people are hesitant to pursue cosmetic dentistry because of outdated information they may have heard, the truth is that technology has vastly improved the delivery of cosmetic procedures.

Don’t believe the misconceptions; make an educated decision about your oral health and ability to finally get that perfect smile you deserve. So here is the truth on 8 myths about cosmetic dentistry you might’ve heard of.

“It’s very expensive.”

Dental insurance usually covers a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments like dental implants and crowns. Plus, with advances in science and technology, cosmetic dentistry has become even more affordable.

Also take into consideration that if you are getting a required procedure, you’ll be saving money in the long run by preventing more serious dental work. In fact, many dental offices, like Heroes Dental & Orthodontics, offer flexible financing and payment options.

“Cosmetic dentistry is going to be painful.”

Can we all just give technology a big round of applause? Once again, advancement in tech means that procedures are safer, easier to complete, and less invasive. Naturally, you’ll feel a little bit of discomfort for a day after the procedures, but painful operations are behind us.

“It really isn’t necessary.”

The truth is that some people decide to have a cosmetic dentistry procedure for aesthetic reasons. However, a lot of solutions actually help to fix dental problems while improving a smile. For instance, a broken tooth can result in pain, disease, and even tooth loss. Fixing it improves your oral health and makes your smile brighter.

“Cosmetic dentistry is just too time consuming.”

Heroes Dental & Orthodontics actually offers same day dentistry with ceramic reconstruction treatments (CEREC). We can perform certain treatments within a single visit, which means less time in our offices and more time showing off your dazzling teeth.

“Cosmetic dentistry just doesn’t give the natural results I’m looking for.”

Years ago, cosmetic dentistry did mean solutions that just didn’t look right. However, modern techniques and technology help dentists to perform cosmetic procedures that end up giving natural results. Our dentists at Heroes Dental & Orthodontics have the experience to save the natural structure of your teeth and actually extend its lifespan. So whether it’s canals, fillings, or bonds, they know how to blend them right in with your natural teeth.

“Any dentist can perform a cosmetic procedure.”

Unfortunately, not all dentists are created equally. When finding a dentist to perform advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures, you’ll want to make sure they are familiar with the latest techniques and have the experience needed to provide great results.

“Older people shouldn’t get cosmetic dentistry.”

Regardless of your age, cosmetic dentistry can meet your needs. By correcting discolored teeth, misalignments of the bite, which happens as you age, and repositioning teeth, you improve your oral health and your smile.

“At-home kits provide the same results.”

At-home kits are often hit-or-miss and cannot provide the same sort of benefit as an in-office treatment. Not only will in-office cosmetic dentistry deliver meaningful results, they’ll also last.
