Although a nice smile is a small part of your overall physical appearance, it can make a big impact on how others see you. A smile survey conducted by the American Dental Association found that Americans rate an attractive smile over all other physical assets—even the eyes and hair! If you feel that your smile may be a bit lackluster, rest assured that any dental imperfection you’re concerned about can be resolved with one or more of the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at Central Kentucky Dental in Winchester, KY. Attend a quick consultation to learn the various options for rejuvenating your smile.

Benefits of a Smile Makeover
Unfortunately, many patients choose to live year after year feeling unsatisfied with the way their teeth look. The results of a study published in Dentistry Today estimates that a quarter of people are so unhappy with their teeth that they don’t like smiling. Making a one-time investment to rejuvenate your smile can do wonders for your self-esteem and self-confidence in the long-run. Also, rejuvenating your smile has more than just social benefits: it can make you look younger, healthier, and more vibrant as well.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
If you know the various types of cosmetic procedures available when you visit your Winchester, KY dentist, you will feel more confident discussing your options at the initial consultation. These are some of the most common procedures:

  • Dental veneers (attractive porcelain coverings for the teeth)
  • Crowns to protect and beautify individual teeth
  • Dental implants and implant supported dentures to replace missing teeth
  • Professional teeth bleaching to scrub away stains
  • Dental bonding and contouring (a temporary, but reliable cosmetic solution)

Your Cosmetic Consultation
There is nothing to fear when you visit the dentist for a cosmetic consultation—it’s just a chance to discuss your options candidly. The appointment will last about 15 to 30 minutes. Your dentist will take X-rays and do a visual examination of your teeth to get a full view of your dental challenges. After the initial consultation, you will schedule a follow-up appointment to begin treatment, or in some cases, the treatment can even begin on the same day.
