Common Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

Common Myths about Bloomington Family Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many different myths and stories about cosmetic dentistry. At Create a Smile, PC cosmetic dentistry in Bloomington, we’d like to dispel some of the mystery around aesthetic dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many  cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Dental procedures such as tooth replacement prevent potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

A  Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have many important advantages for patients. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Tooth implants can also anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Over-the-Counter Kits are as Effective for Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Create A Smile, PC – Dr. Ken Moore, we offer our dental patients teeth whitening treatments that are generally more effective than those sold at the grocery store. Dr. Moore of Create a Smile has been trained extensively to provide simple, beautiful teeth whitening treatments to his valued patients.

Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Dental veneers can change the color, shape, size, or length of your smile based on your exact specifications.

Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our Bloomington teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a remarkable smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer speedy results!
