We all need family dentistry and from time to time some of us need what is considered cosmetic dentistry.
Finding family and cosmetic dentistry Markham is not difficult; in many instances, they are in the same office.
Family Dentistry usually takes anyone from early ages to 100 for procedures such as;
- Checkups and cleanings
- Crowns and bridges
- Mouth guards
Those are just a few procedures which help to sustain oral health and good teeth listed under family dentistry.
The family dentist is the one who will help you develop good oral hygiene habits and keep check of your teeth for diseases, cavities and other issues that might need a cosmetic procedure.
He or she will be the one to notice serious issues that could be cancer before anyone else will find it.
Working with a family dentist to plan proper oral care will give you years of healthy teeth and mouth.
Cosmetic dentistry consists of procedures that help give you a beautiful smile.
For instance, dental implants to replace a missing tooth in the front or veneers to give you cleaner looking teeth or hide chips or cracks.
While these procedures have to do with looks they can also be preventative when it comes to teeth shifting and changing your bite or your teeth spreading out and forming gaps which could cause debris to be left behind during your normal oral brushings and flossing every day.
Another instance is changing the shape or size of the teeth with veneers or bonding. If you want your one front tooth to be slightly longer or slimmer to match the other tooth so that the difference is less noticeable, then it is a cosmetic dentistry procedure you will have performed.
