Here is a famous saying. If you’ve regularly got your nose in a good book or a fan of the movies, you might remember this hideously, haunting line. ‘Vanity is my favorite sin’. But here is the thing, when it comes to cosmetic dentist corona consultations, the devil is in the detail. And the ruthless creature that had this to say about so-called vanity? Well, it’s probably bitten him in the you know where. Let’s clear up this misconception about cosmetic dentistry right away.
Perhaps there is still a lot of people out there who seem to think that cosmetic dentistry is nothing more than a vanity case. Any old excuse to get out of going to the dentist perhaps? And another old saying, although much further to the truth; he who hesitates? Anyway, nothing could be further from the truth. In actual fact, cosmetic dentistry work comes highly recommended. And it is actually quite healthy too.
Does this not make sense then? Surely a person who has shining white teeth must have healthy teeth? That may be from regular brushing and flossing. A person who smokes like a chimney, on the other hand, is going to have yellowing teeth, and foul smelling breath to boot. Not only does that look awful it’s actually quite dangerous. Never mind what damage smoking is already doing to the lungs.
Yellowing teeth and that foul-smelling breath is a breeding ground for bacteria and serious diseases, anything from diabetes to heart disease and you get the picture. What happens in the teeth and gums can have a direct impact on other areas of the body. Teeth whitening may be cosmetic on the surface but more importantly, it is actually teeth cleaning. There is a big difference. Cosmetic dentistry is a healthy form of preventive medicine.
