How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Confidence

DF2General Dentistry

When it comes to dentistry, having a healthy smile is only part of the story. It’s important to make sure your teeth are strong and healthy, but let’s face it - there’s something about feeling confident about your teeth that can really add a pep in your step.

Cosmetic dentistry consists of several different methods that you can choose on your own or combine depending on your preferences. How can cosmetic dentistry boost your confidence? Let’s find out.


Nothing boosts confidence like a bright, white smile! Our team at Ascent Dental Care offers either In-Office or At-Home bleaching options to meet your needs. The In-Office treatment is done in one visit, so you can get results quickly. If you prefer the at-home option, you will hold a customized mouth guard against your teeth for a specified amount of time given by our office. Whichever option you choose, you can have bright, white teeth in no time.


To improve confidence in your smile, veneers are a great option for several conditions, including stained, chipped, gapped and even slightly misaligned teeth. Veneers are coverings that go across the visible front and sides of the tooth, resulting in an even, bright smile. The average veneer lasts around 5 years.


If you have missing teeth, dental implants offer a solution to give you a confident smile. Implants work as a replacement root for teeth that are damaged beyond repair. These implants are very stable and not likely to affect any neighboring teeth, making them the best option to replace a damaged or missing tooth. Implants can include both fixed, permanent options for a single tooth or removable dentures, depending on your need and preference.


Nothing inspires confidence quite like a smile with bright, white, beautifully straight teeth.  Crowded and misaligned teeth are uncomfortable, and if you want a more visually appealing smile, consider looking into orthodontics. Our team at Ascent Dental Care offers comprehensive orthodontic approaches, including Minor Tooth Movement treatments, which align and straighten only the six upper and lower front teeth without the need for a full mouth of braces. Alternatively, our Invisalign services provide a way for you to straighten your teeth without wires. A beautiful smile is as simple as wearing a custom made aligner tray that is so discreet, no one will know you’re wearing them! Invisalign is a modern take on traditional orthodontic treatments with no metal, wires, or tightening required.
