When one thinks of cosmetic surgeries, dental procedures rarely come to mind. This is, however, a growing segment of the cosmetic surgery industry.

Cosmetic Surgeries - Dental

Cosmetic surgery is one of the fastest growing fields in medicine today. Throughout the United States (as well as in parts of the rest of the world), many people are electing to have plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures performed on their bodies in order to improve the way that they look. While many people only think about cosmetic surgery as being good for things such as breast implants and liposuction – there are other parts of the human body that can be changed via surgery. Some cosmetic surgeries – dental, for example, work differently.

Dental work doesn't just involve non-invasive procedures like tooth whitening and braces (invisible or traditional). Sometimes, surgery needs to be performed in order to make your teeth and mouth look their best. There are many different reasons that people need cosmetic surgeries – dental, with some of them being structural and others being because of external problems such as broken teeth and crooked teeth that are unable to be fixed by braces or other methods.

One of the most common dental surgeries are porcelain veneers. This process involves putting thin sheets of porcelain over existing teeth, in order to make your teeth look whiter, less crooked and more evenly shaped. In order to perform the process of putting on veneers, however, your existing teeth must be ground down to a specific shape so that the veneers will fit. This process is considered to be one of the cosmetic surgeries – dental, because you need to actually modify your teeth before the veneers can be applied.

Another surgery that can be performed on your mouth in order to make your teeth look better is gum surgery. Some people feel that their gums are too large, too uneven, or hang down on their teeth too greatly. Other people may feel their gums have receded, and that they have “long teeth”. Cosmetic dental surgery can help to correct these gum problems, by either removing some of the gum tissue or rearranging the current tissue.

When you feel that your smile isn't at its best, you're less likely to use it. This can mean that you are seen as not being friendly or as good looking as you'd like. Cosmetic dental surgery can help to correct some of these issues so that you enjoy your smile again.
