Cosmetic dentistry is quickly gaining popularity and is becoming one of the most prominent ways people use to enhance their appearance. If you’re looking to reshape the gum line to fill in the places between your teeth or have your teeth whitened, cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of options to choose from.

Maybe you are wondering if the time is right for you to seek out cosmetic dentistry. Here are a few ways you can tell if now is the right time for you.

Many adults over 30 are missing some of their teeth. People in this situation find themselves typically getting dental implants to replace their missing teeth. Because dental implants look, act, and feel much like regular teeth, they are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to replace lost teeth. Dentures lack the comfort of dental implants and also have a shorter lifespan.

If in the past ten years you’ve had a cavity that has been filled in with an ugly black or gray filling, your tooth can stand out when you smile. Thankfully, ugly little black or gray fillings are things of the past. Dental technology has progressed past that and now your dentist can offer you tooth colored fillings to help your discolored tooth match the rest of your teeth so it won’t stand out when you smile.
