Cosmetic Fillings: Healthy as Well as Beautiful

Apr 3, 2017

What is the relationship of the tooth to the jaw to confidence? Advanced evidence-based studies in orthodontics reveal that teeth are the reason some people feel more confident than others. Confidence is gauged on a desire to smile or show your teeth. Cosmetic fillings, a blend of art and science, can give you that radiant, sensational effect you’ve been looking for in your smile, as well as strengthen your teeth so their unevenness is not causing jaw issues.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers, also known as cosmetic fillings, are bonded to your teeth to smooth their surface by aligning crowded and broken teeth. Much like when you need a crown or restorative filling, porcelain veneers help stop further damage to your teeth. Chewing your food only on one side of your mouth to avoid a missing, chipped, or aching tooth is one of the many ways teeth are damaged. The imbalance causes a wearing down of the enamel and jaw aches.

Straightening your teeth is one way to solve this issue. Cosmetic fillings are much more preferable to braces. Young or old, not being able to show off your pearly whites for a few months is unpleasant. An alternative option is Lumineers, which are thinner porcelain veneers. These advancements in cosmetic dentistry are considered the best thing since teeth whitening; and as a bonus, veneers do that, too.


Although you can get in-office whitening or custom take-home trays, cosmetic fillings kill two birds with one stone. Three if your confidence is being gauged. While beauty may lie in the eye of the beholder, for most, a confident smile is a symbol of health, wealth, happiness, and success. Cosmetic fillings are not going to get you that promotion, but your confidence will help.

Whether you are looking to get an award-winning smile and boost your confidence or think your teeth might be contributing to jaw issues and headaches, cosmetic fillings are a solution for you. Cosmetic dentists take pride in their work, molding frowns into masterpieces as they smooth the ragged edges of time away. Years of acidic beverages, teeth grinding or not being born with that flawless smile can be gone with an appointment in a dentist chair for porcelain veneers. The power to do so is in your hands.
