Cosmetic Dentistry Will Leave You Looking Your Best

If you have ever been insecure about your teeth or your smile, cosmetic dentistry could be the solution. That is the opinion of Pioneer Valley Dental’s Dr. Brent Baugh.

“Having a nice smile and beautiful teeth is so important. It is what often makes or breaks a great first impression,” says Dr. Baugh. “Fortunately, through cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at Pioneer Valley Dental, there are now a variety of methods that will suit your schedule and your budget and give you that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.”

According to Dr. Baugh, teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracking and discoloration over time. Pioneer Valley Dental addresses dental issues like these by offering veneers and full-coverage crowns. “A veneer is a thin ceramic shell that covers the existing tooth structure. Placing veneers on your teeth allows you to conceal stains, cracks, spaces, misalignments, chips and other imperfections,” says Baugh. “When a tooth is decaying or becoming weak, a crown is often the solution. Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or from gold. To maintain the look and feel of a natural tooth, a porcelain crown is often the best choice and can be customized to match the shade of your teeth.” Getting veneers or crowns put on takes between two to three visits.

Dental implants are also available for those who have missing teeth. “Attached to the jaw, a dental implant will hold a crown or bridge in place. That crown or bridge will function and look exactly like a natural tooth,” says Dr. Baugh. “The cosmetic side of this treatment involves matching the color of the implant and crown to the remaining teeth, leaving you with a complete, natural-looking smile.”

He added, “Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments available today. It can be the ideal solution to repairing the flaws, discolorations and stains on teeth caused by smoking or drinking tea and coffee. There is also the option to use professional in-office whitening as well, which will lighten your teeth in about an hour and a half and give you beautiful results.”

“Having a nice smile is aesthetically important, but having cosmetic dentistry procedures performed can also help you discover underlying problems like cavities and decay in your teeth. And of course, having healthy teeth is just as important, if not more important, than having beautiful teeth,” says Dr. Baugh. “The New Year is the perfect time to meet with your dentist to find out if cosmetic dentistry is right for you.”

After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University-Israel, Dr. Baugh earned his dental degree from Creighton University in 1995. He is a member of the Utah Dental Association and the American Dental Association.
