Facts and Myths About Cosmetic Dentistry

September 10, 2019
Woman with Beautiful Teeth Smiling

With numerous advancements in the dental health industry, cosmetic dentistry has become more popular than ever. What’s also become popular is the inaccurate myths around cosmetic dentistry. Many people who are unhappy with their smiles turn to cosmetic dentistry. Many of them, however, backout paying heed to all the unwanted myths. Having performed hundreds of cosmetic dentistries on happy patients, we decided to put together some myths about cosmetic dentistry and relevant facts about the same to back it up. Read this blog and never think twice about cosmetic dentistry if you want to get it done.

Myth #1 – Cosmetic dentistry is very painful 

Unless you cannot even stand a pinch of pain through injections, it is not painful. Well, it does not feel painful at the least. There are numerous ways through which the pain can be numbed down and managed. Additionally, the advances in cosmetic dentistry have made the process very simple and more comfortable. (you won’t cry in pain while undergoing cosmetic dentistry, we promise.)

Myth #2 – Cosmetic dentistry can damage your teeth (slow claps to the one who started this myth)

Dentists are people who are there to help make your teeth healthier. They will not perform any procedures which they think might damage your teeth. Cosmetic dentistries are safe and do not harm your teeth in any way (unless you choose a terrible dentist). On the flip side, specific procedures of cosmetic dentistry can promote the health of your natural teeth.

Myth #3 – Cosmetic dentistry is very expensive 

Check out the prices and procedures of cosmetic dentistry, and you’ll realize this is false. The processes of your cosmetic dentistry can be covered through your dental insurance. Besides, it not more expensive than poor dental health and a smile you don’t want to flaunt. Investing today in your oral health can help save money in the future, which you may occur due to inadequate oral hygiene, causing serious cavities and infections.

Myth #4 – Cosmetic dentistry steals away the natural look of your teeth 

Could you ever tell which of the celebrities has undergone cosmetic dentistry just by looking at their teeth? No right? Because you cannot. Cosmetic dentistry leave your teeth looking as natural as they used to be, only adding more shine and a good shape. Only a certified dentist can tell if someone’s gone through cosmetic dentistry after a close examination. So, rest assured about the natural appearance of your teeth after getting a cosmetic dentistry procedure done.

Myth #5 – Cosmetic dentistry is only for people who want to look nice 

Sure, cosmetic dentistry can help enhance your smile and brighten it, but that’s not the only goal or purpose. These procedures often correct the misalignment of teeth, which may cause pain while chewing and help put together an effective teeth system in place. It also treats broken teeth and malocclusion, which might lead to severe pain, tooth loss, or even dental diseases. So, no – not all people choosing cosmetic dentistry are doing so to have a charming, beautiful smile.

These are the most common myths about cosmetic dentistry that we get asked our opinions about a lot. Hope this blog helped bust these myths. Book an appointment with us today if you’re looking to get cosmetic dentistry done in Framingham MA. We’d be glad to serve you.
