Dental team in Arden, NC explains how to find the best cosmetic dentist to meet your needs

General dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral conditions that affect the health of the smile, whereas cosmetic dentistry places emphasis on the beauty of the smile. The Asheville Smile Center team works with patients to prevent oral health conditions and restore beauty to their smiles. We are happy to explain various cosmetic procedures to help patients in Arden, NC and beyond find the best cosmetic dentist to meet their needs.

Although cosmetic dentistry, sometimes called esthetic dentistry, focuses on how attractive the smile can be, it can also offer several benefits to patients' overall health and well-being. We notice confidence increases when patients have their teeth whitened or walk out of our office with beautiful porcelain veneers.

Men and women with attractive smiles reap several benefits. According to studies, the smile is one of the first features a person notices when meeting someone. Smiling releases endorphins, which boost the mood. A confident smile might help a person secure a job. By keeping the smile healthy, an individual can prevent oral conditions such as tooth decay, and gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults ages 65 and older.

Cosmetic procedures include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, crowns, dental implants, and bridges. We offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments that allow patients to attain the smiles of their dreams. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells placed on teeth that are discolored, misshapen, misaligned, or gapped. Crowns can be fabricated in a single appointment by utilizing CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) technology and are used to treat decayed or damaged teeth. Dental implants are titanium rods placed into the jawbone during surgery. They are completed with porcelain crowns to restore beauty to the smile. Bridges contain artificial teeth and crowns to replace missing teeth.

We recommend finding a cosmetic dentist who can offer restorative as well as orthodontic solutions. We understand it is important to entrust your smile to a highly qualified team. If you are looking for a terrific cosmetic dentist, schedule a consultation with one of ours. Contact us today by calling (828) 585-4049.
