Don’t let the myths about cosmetic dentistry keep you from getting the dental work you need!

There are so many myths and misconceptions about cosmetic dentistry. Unfortunately, many people don’t get the cosmetic dental work they need because they believe those myths! At James Otten Dentistry, we want to help you feel as informed and comfortable as possible when you visit us, and that’s why our dentist in Lawrence has set out to reveal the truth behind common cosmetic dentistry myths. Check out our last blog to learn about the myths we’ve already gone over, and keep reading to learn more:

Myth #3. It doesn’t give you results that last. 

While it may be true that professional teeth whitening won’t last forever, the results that you get will last much longer than the results you get from at-home whitening options. Other cosmetic procedures can give you results that can last much longer. Veneers, dental bonding and dental implants can all last for many years if they are well planned, done with great technique and precision and taken care of very well after they’ve been placed.

Myth #4. It damages your natural teeth. 

Cosmetic dentistry is not designed to damage your teeth, and when you choose an experienced and knowledgeable dentist, he or she will help you decide on a procedure that protects the health and structural integrity of your teeth. In most circumstances, cosmetic dentistry is actually used to strengthen the structure of the tooth and extend its life.

If you would like to enhance your smile with cosmetic dentistry, don’t let the myths and misconceptions hold you back! Contact us at James Otten Dentistry today to find out which procedure is right for you!
