Common Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

Common Myths about Richardson Family Cosmetic Dentistry

At The Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX, we improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry every day. From the questions that some patients ask, though, it seems there are some common misconceptions about what cosmetic dentistry can and cannot do. So we’re using this blog post to clear up a few of them.

Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many “cosmetic” dental procedures are not solely cosmetic.  Procedures such as tooth replacement prevent potential issues like tooth movement, bone loss, and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: 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 advantages. They feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Teeth Whitening is as Effective as Professional Whitening

Commercially purchased whitening systems cannot compare to professional-strength teeth whitening treatments. They may remove surface stains, but do not provide the best results.

Myth #4: 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.

Myth #5: Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces can transform a smile, even in adults. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, porcelain veneers can reshape your teeth and help you get a beautiful smile.
