Cosmetic Dentistry Port Saint Lucie, Florida

Port St Lucie Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry is one of the newer concepts in dentistry that builds on general dentistry. All the basic principles of high quality dentistry still apply. Improving the way you look is great, but not if it doesn't last. All the physical aspects, or the “engineering” of your dental work, such as the fit and the function, are fundamental. Here, at Advanced Smile Institute, we hold a practical view to cosmetic dentistry; Maximum aesthetics without compromising the core dental principles.

Many aspects of cosmetic dentistry, at first glance, may not seem to apply. For example, your gums play an important role in any cosmetic procedure. The shape, color, thickness (or “plumpness”), and height affect how the teeth have to look. If you have periodontal problems, you may not have your original amount of gums or you may have recession, then the teeth have to be longer to “make up the space”. It is important to have healthy gums when trying to achieve the cosmetic results you want.

The way your teeth are spaced also has an effect. Some people may need orthodontics to be part of their solution. Coloration is much more than just picking one simple shade. There are multiple shades within each tooth. Each type of tooth has its own characteristic variance in color. Your complexion also plays a part in how your teeth look; darker skin tones can make  teeth seem whiter.  Have you noticed in many teeth whitening ads, the “after” picture usually has someone wearing fairly dark or red lipstick? It makes the teeth look whiter.

Cosmetic dentistry takes into account many aspects of your mouth, face, skin, head, and anatomy, not just your teeth. No one, particular smile or type of teeth is appropriate for everyone, it must look like it “belongs there”. It is important to attend to all of these aspects and tailor them to each person, if you want the best possible results.
