Simpler Smile Makeovers with Bronx Cosmetic Dentist
The latest statistics from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) show a growing trend in smile makeover procedures, with teeth whitening having increased by 300% in the past five years and porcelain veneers by 250%. However, Dr. Victor Oelbaum, a dentist in Bronx, NY, says patient confidence and smile satisfaction do not always have to come at the cost of redoing one’s entire mouth. Dr. Oelbaum discusses the benefits of smile makeovers through making minor adjustments to oral composition, maintaining good oral habits, and being proactive with preventative treatments.
At his center for cosmetic dentistry in Bronx, NY, Dr. Victor Oelbaum says smile makeovers can give patients a stronger sense of confidence in their appearance and a healthier outlook on life. With an increase of 300% in teeth whitening procedures and 250% in porcelain veneers according to the most recent study from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the popularity of aesthetic dental treatments is only expected to rise. Dr. Oelbaum, however, stresses that a complete makeover is not always necessary to make patients feel better about the appearance of their smile. With minor cosmetic alterations and good, simple oral habits, he adds that patients can see a noticeable difference in their teeth. “One tooth can affect the whole smile. Cleaning, bleaching, or correcting other imperfections in that one tooth can rejuvenate a patient’s smile and improve their overall confidence.”
Through routine cleanings and consistent oral health, Dr. Oelbaum says patients can also help prevent the harmful oral complications that lead to discomfort, infection, and an overall unattractive mouth. He says keeping teeth clean and healthy will minimize the risk of further disease and infection that might necessitate procedures such as periodontal gum treatment for gum disease. Dr. Oelbaum stresses the importance of keeping gums healthy in order to preserve a natural and beautiful smile, but also to improve their overall health. “Taking care of your mouth with routine cleanings can improve periodontal and oral health, which can have a tremendous impact on our patients’ general health and well-being.”
Dr. Oelbaum says patients should consider both the cosmetic and health-related benefits of smile makeovers to increase confidence and maintain good personal hygiene. He recommends scheduling routine appointments with an experienced and qualified dental practice so as to achieve the best results in a smile makeover and the highest level of patient satisfaction. At his practice, Dr. Oelbaum says he is committed to providing patients with the resources and expertise to keep a healthy and aesthetically-pleasing mouth. “We strive for excellence in dentistry and remain dedicated to whole mouth care.”
