Is cosmetic surgery for you? There are several things to think about before having cosmetic surgery or undergoing any type of surgical procedure. Some people have the misconception that cosmetic surgery can make them better looking than they are right now. This is not true.
Cosmetic surgery is a cosmetic specialty involving the improvement, restoration, or revision of a person’s physical or aesthetic body part or area of their body. It can also be classified as reconstructive cosmetic surgery relating to the treatment or prevention of disfigurement. Reconstructive cosmetic surgery refers to the restoration of an entire area such as a face, neck, or chest after an accident. Reconstructive cosmetic surgery involves the use of plastic surgery techniques and equipment to reshape a portion of a person’s body. Reconstructive cosmetic surgery does not change the overall look of the patient. It only improves or enhances an area of that person’s body that is considered aesthetically unacceptable.
Cosmetic surgery can also be referred to as cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry refers to the treatment and prevention of tooth loss by improving or restoring one or more teeth. This can include tooth extraction, filling of tooth missing areas, filling of decayed or broken teeth, filling of cavities, filling of root canals, repairing crowns, etc. Cosmetic dentistry can involve everything from tooth whitening to gum lift and it can even include veneers, caps, bonding, and porcelain crowns.
Cosmetic dentists are trained and licensed to perform the procedures they do. The most common cosmetic dentistry procedure is dental implants. Implants can help restore missing teeth, fill cavities, correct damaged teeth, provide permanent smiles, and improve oral hygiene. Implants can be placed in the jaw, on the back, on the tongue, on the gums, and on the bone and muscle of the jaw.
Another popular procedure that is commonly done for cosmetic purposes is cosmetic dentistry. A crown is a removable artificial structure that is placed over a tooth. Crowns can be used to cover any portion of a tooth that is visible to the untrained eye. A crown is used to hide or conceal defects in the tooth or to increase a person’s confidence, prevent or decrease the appearance of gaps in a person’s smile, to improve the visual appeal of a person’s teeth, or smile, or to enhance a person’s smile. Implants, like a dental crown, are not removable, but they can be placed over and on top of an existing tooth in order to give a completely new look.
Cosmetic dentists can also perform dental surgeries. Dental implants, or dental crowns, will reshape or re-align an existing tooth that has become misshaped or misaligned. A tooth can also be pulled and reshaped in order to correct any teeth misalignment or other problems that may have occurred. A crown can also be used to cover gaps, create a gap between teeth, to cover damage to the crown, to correct chipped teeth, to fill cavities, to improve aesthetics, to cover gaps in an existing tooth, to correct an uneven bite, and to provide comfort. A cosmetic dentist can also repair crowns that have become loose, worn down or decayed.
