Dr. John Cross, lead dentist at OC Lifesmiles, discusses the various cosmetic treatments and procedures — including porcelain veneers, Invisalign®, and a full Smile Makeover — that can improve not only patients’ smiles, but also their entire appearance.
Newport Beach, CA — Dr. John Cross of leading Newport Beach-based practice OC Lifesmiles recently detailed how certain cosmetic dentistry services can refine the shape, color, and proportions of the teeth to help patients enjoy a healthier and more youthful smile. Through advancements in dental techniques and technology, Dr. Cross reveals that the capabilities of dentistry as a whole have expanded immensely, thereby increasing the overall impact dentists can make on their patients’ lives. Cosmetic dentistry is a broad category that generally includes treatments like porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, Invisalign®, tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic bonding, and a Smile Makeover. According to Dr. Cross, many of these treatments can enhance the balance and structure of a patient’s smile, improve oral hygiene, and even make people appear younger.
Over time, your features begin to change and the teeth are no exception. The lips often thin with age, fine lines commonly develop around the mouth, and the teeth may appear short or worn due to wear and tear. High-quality dental work can help improve these effects and, in turn, achieve a healthier, more vibrant, and younger-looking appearance. Conditions that can be greatly improved with cosmetic dentistry include severe staining, cracks and chips in the teeth, crookedness, misalignments, and gaps, among other aesthetic concerns.
While any of the aforementioned services can help improve self-confidence on their own, combining a few treatments together can achieve even greater results. A Smile Makeover can provide many benefits to your smile, as treatment incorporates multiple services into one dental plan. For those who want to know more about how cosmetic dentistry can help patients achieve their goals, Dr. Cross encourages scheduling a one-on-one consultation with a qualified cosmetic dentist.
