If you are unhappy with your smile, you may be considering a cosmetic dentist to correct your oral aesthetics. What you might not realize is that cosmetic dentistry offers benefits that go well beyond enhancing your appearance to increasing your oral health.

Oral health benefits of cosmetic dentistry

The goal of your cosmetic dentist is to improve your appearance and increase your confidence in your smile. When you smile more frequently, your health improves not only psychologically but with physical benefits from increases in dopamine, serotonin, and feel-good endorphins released with every smile. Cosmetic dentistry enhances your overall health and your specific oral health in the following ways.

Benefits of dental implants

A cosmetic dentist uses dental implants to replace missing teeth. While they are considered a cosmetic procedure that improves your overall appearance, they also provide significant benefits to your oral health. Teeth serve to stimulate and stabilize the jaw; when they are missing, the jaw and related bones can deteriorate. This can cause facial pain, headaches, loose teeth, a distorted facial profile, wrinkled skin, lack of support around the lips, jaw pain, and problems with speaking and eating. Dental implants involve the surgical implantation of titanium posts that serve as prosthetic roots to stabilize and stimulate the jaw in place of actual teeth.

Benefits of teeth straightening

A dental malocclusion or crowded teeth cause difficulty in maintaining proper oral care. Cavities and gum disease can result from the inability to reach all of the teeth for proper brushing and flossing. Crooked teeth can also lead to TMJ, which often results from the stress of uneven bite force. When a cosmetic dentist uses procedures to straighten your teeth, you will be able to brush and floss more effectively, and your bite will be evened out to prevent additional oral health issues.

Benefits of crowns

Your cosmetic dentist can use a crown, also known as a cap, to fit over an existing damaged or decayed tooth. Crowns can save a breaking or cracked tooth by holding it together and can restore the appearance, size, shape, and strength of a damaged tooth. This can help to prevent a host of oral health issues, including the following:

  • Tooth loss and decay from chipped or cracked teeth
  • Bone loss, disease, and decay caused by damaged or missing teeth
  • Toothaches and problematic infections due to decay entering the inner layers of the tooth
  • Chronic bad breath, gum recession, swollen gums, and tooth sensitivity resulting from gum disease

Benefits of tooth whitening

Bad habits such as a high-sugar diet and smoking are common causes of tooth discoloration. When a cosmetic dentist whitens your teeth, you will tend to spend more time on good oral hygiene and reduce the bad habits that lead to tooth yellowing in order to maintain those pearly whites.


A beautiful smile is the most apparent benefit of cosmetic dentistry, but the advantages go well beyond the surface. Improvements to oral hygiene and overall health are additional improvements that accompany cosmetic dentistry procedures.
