It is an undeniable fact that has been proven by smile surveys conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and theCosmetic Dentist Consultation Harris Poll. The quality of your smile affects your self-confidence, attractiveness, and social habits. It may even affect how likely you are to keep up with good dental hygiene habits in the future. Some people are conditioned to make judgments about you just by looking at your teeth. Dr. Gary Machiko, a Pittsburgh, PA cosmetic dentist, can significantly improve your smile with a cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Your Cosmetic Dentistry Options
The great thing about modern cosmetic dentistry is that you will often have more than one treatment option for bettering your smile. These are some of the most common aesthetic dental treatments that may help your smile:

- Veneers and crowns
- Professional teeth whitening
- Dental bonding and contouring
- Braces and Invisalign
- Dental implants and implant supported devices

What Happens At a Cosmetic Consultation?
There is a good chance that you have more than one complaint about your smile's appearance. Your Pittsburgh cosmetic dentist will first consult you about what you want to change, then look at your teeth visually and with dental X-rays to decide on the best course of action. You may be presented with more than one option, such as teeth whitening and crowns or partial dentures and bonding. The cosmetic transformation might begin that day, or you can come in at a later date to start treatment.

Benefits of a Better Smile
When you're embarrassed about your teeth, it can affect how you navigate your day. With a changed smile you can finally face everyday social and professional situations knowing that your teeth aren't a potential distraction. You'll also want to see your dentist more often for checkups and cleanings to make sure that your smile continues to look radiant, bright, and perfectly aligned.
