You can work with your dentist to achieve all kinds of goals for your smile. However, if improving the appearance of your smile is number cosmetic dentistryone on your list, you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Learn how cosmetic dentistry can overhaul your smile with Dr. Jay Shartzer at Implant Dentistry of Fort Myers in Fort Myers, FL.

First Things First: Replacing Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
Replacing your missing tooth is a logical first step to overhauling your smile. With dental implants, you can permanently replace both your tooth and its root. Thanks to their positioning inside of the jawbone beneath your missing tooth, dental implants help fight against bone atrophy, one of the side effects of missing teeth. They also give you a full and beautiful smile which you can be proud of for many years to come.

Renewing Your Smile With Bonding, Contouring, and Reshaping
With your teeth replaced, you may choose to move on to further improving your smile. Your teeth may benefit from dental bonding, contouring and reshaping. These procedures use a combination of molding tooth-colored composite resin directly onto the teeth to alter their shapes and a dental drill with various bits to smooth and shape the composite resin into a new look you will love. These procedures can take as few as one dental appointment to renew your smile and compliment your dental implants.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Fort Myers, FL 
Cosmetic dentistry can benefit most people who wish to improve the appearance of their smile. However, patients should be in good dental and general health and qualify for the procedure in question. For example, patients looking into dental implants need to have adequate bone volume within their mouth to give the implant a sturdy foundation on which to sit. Some patients may require other procedures, like bone grafts, prior to receiving their implants. Your dentist can help you determine if dental implants and other cosmetic dentistry procedures will benefit you and your smile.
