It can be exciting to consider the possibilities that cosmetic dentistry offers to improve your smile. You probably can’t wait to get started but to be a good candidate for a smile makeover, your smile must be healthy.
Your cosmetic dentist in Chesterfield, MO, is an expert at creating beautiful smiles. Every smile makeover journey begins with a thorough oral health evaluation to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy.
Why a Healthy Smile Is Important for Cosmetic Dentistry
Why is a healthy smile important for cosmetic dentistry? Think of improving your smile like you would painting your house. Before you begin, you would prepare the walls to ensure they’re solid, in good shape, and free of issues that would affect the results of your hard work.
It’s the same with your smile.
During your initial dental evaluation, your cosmetic dentist in Chesterfield, MO, looks for underlying conditions or issues that would cause undue complications in your cosmetic dental treatments.
One good example is dental veneers. The process of placing veneers requires removing a thin layer of tooth enamel so that they fit properly. For your safety, we first need to ensure there is no underlying infection that could create problems during or after the procedure.
Another common issue that could potentially delay cosmetic dental treatment is cavities. It wouldn’t make sense to work around a cavity and risk later damaging the new dental work to fill the tooth.
It makes much more sense to fill the tooth, then move on to cosmetic dentistry for beautiful, long-lasting results.
