New Albany, IN (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
New Albany cosmetic dental work expert Dr. Ronald Receveur knows how important an attractive smile can be to someone’s self-esteem.
Dr. Receveur was born with a missing front tooth. The challenges he faced growing up due to the missing tooth and subsequent dental “solutions” inspired him to go into the profession and seek better solutions for his patients.
“I know what it is like to be embarrassed to smile or show your teeth,” Dr. Receveur said. “Few dentists can empathize with patients who feel that way as I can.”
For those who have unattractive teeth, or at least teeth they are unhappy with, here are six tips from Dr. Receveur about cosmetic dentistry:
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure. Patients with moderate to severe discoloration should use professional teeth whitening to assure an even white tone without over-bleaching. This typically takes no more than an hour per visit. The cost of professional teeth whitening usually ranges from $200 to $700.
The second-most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is dental veneers. These thin layers, frequently made of porcelain, are placed over teeth to correct problems such as discoloration and gaps all at one time. Veneers can last seven to 20 years with proper care.
Dental implants are not only cosmetic, but functional. To replace missing or badly damaged teeth, a titanium screw (implant) is inserted into the jawbone, and a false tooth (crown) is put on top. This false tooth looks and feels just like a real tooth.
Teeth make a difference in first impressions. A USA Today study showed that the more than 5,000 single men and women surveyed said they judge a potential partner on their teeth most upon first meeting them. Teeth were higher than clothing and hair and all other factors.
Most cosmetic dentistry patients (51 percent) are 40-60 years old.
Cosmetic dentistry patients will spend between $5,000 and $6,000 on average on cosmetic dental work to improve their smile.
