If you are looking for a new dental home, you have a lot of choices in Irvine and Orange County. But when you’re making a decision about which one is the right one, seriously consider that a

cosmetic dentist might be the best choice for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry Is Dentistry Done Right

Cosmetic dentists, Drs. Scott and Taylor RiceOne of the most important things to understand about cosmetic dentistry is that it isn’t just a group of procedures that dentists perform, it’s a philosophical approach to dentistry that recognizes the close interrelationship between the appearance of your teeth and their health.

Attractive dental restorations like tooth-colored fillings and ceramic crowns don’t just have the benefit of looking more attractive, they have real benefits in terms of the health of your teeth. Tooth-colored materials often insulate your teeth better than metals, and have a more similar thermal expansion rate to your natural tooth material.

And this doesn’t just go for your teeth–attractive gums are healthy gums, too, free of gum disease.

Don’t Just Fix Problems: Prevent Them

Another important distinction that sets most cosmetic dentists apart: they’re interested in preventing problems that can endanger your teeth, your health, and even your life. Although many dentists just wait for problems to crop up and then fix them, a cosmetic dentist–at least those trained in the Kois Center philosophy–identify problems that are developing and head them offer before they become a problem.

Cosmetic Dentists Treat You Like a Person

Successful cosmetic dentistry depends on getting to know you as an individual. How else could a cosmetic dentist deliver a smile with individuality and personality? This makes treating each person as a unique individual an inherent part of cosmetic dentistry, and it means that you’re likely to get more personalized care and attention from a cosmetic dentist than other dentists.

Many non-cosmetic dentists have to work hard to handle many patients a day, which means that every person receives less in the way of personal attention.
