Cosmetic dentistry has been gaining popularity over the years as more options for natural-looking and affordable treatments have become available. Each year, around $2.75 billion is spent in the United States on cosmetic dental procedures. Cosmetic dentistry refers to individual or combined procedures that enhance the appearance of the teeth or smile; however, many cosmetic treatments may also improve functionality, as in cases of tooth replacement, elevate a patient's self-esteem, and allow for better oral hygiene, as with teeth straightening.
Studies have shown that a beautiful smile ranks higher than the face, body, or hair related to a person's overall attractiveness. People respond to a confident and friendly smile, making an investment in cosmetic dentistry is a wise choice that yields significant return in business and personal environments.
