It's easy to confuse the terms “aesthetic” and “cosmetic” when it comes to dentistry, but there are important distinctions between the two. Cosmetic dentistry is focused on improving the appearance of teeth, while aesthetic dentistry goes beyond visual appeal to create harmony and balance between teeth, gums, and other facial features. Cosmetic dentistry is all about making your teeth look better than perfect. It includes treatments such as teeth whitening, braces, veneers, and a variety of other techniques.
The goal is to give you a bright, white, straight smile that looks like it came straight out of a magazine. Aesthetic dentistry, on the other hand, is more than just making your teeth look good. It requires a combination of visual appeal and comfort, health, and durability. Aesthetic dentists strive to create harmony and balance between opposing teeth (or restorations), jaw muscles, and jaw joints (TMJ).
They also ensure that the periodontium (supporting gingiva and bone tissues) is healthy. At Dental Implants & Aesthetics, we believe that achieving harmony and balance both visually and functionally should be a fundamental objective of any aesthetic treatment. We also believe that cosmetic treatments should only be performed if they can be sustained by the patient's oral health. If you're looking for a dentist who can provide both cosmetic and aesthetic treatments, Urzula Barrios is an excellent choice.
