People who are embarrassed about their smile tend to hide it. They cover their teeth with their hands while talking or smiling or with their mouth closed when being photographed.

People with beautiful smiles share their smiles more, which makes them come across as warmer and friendlier when meeting new people or speaking with friends, family, and coworkers.

Improving your smile has never been easier than it is today, with many effective cosmetic dentistry options available to help you get the smile you deserve!

If these six characteristics describe you, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry at Aglow Dental Studio in Reston, VA:

1. You Have Good Overall Dental Hygiene

For the best results, cosmetic procedures need to be performed on mouths without significant teeth or gum issues. If you have issues with your teeth or gums, they need to be addressed first. Maintaining regular dental check-ups and cleanings ensures your mouth is in the best condition for cosmetic enhancements.

2. You Don’t Grind Your Teeth

Grinding your teeth can cause chips or fractures to certain cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as veneers. Thus, your options may be limited if you grind your teeth. If you do grind your teeth, let us know so we can help you address your teeth grinding first or propose treatments that can better withstand grinding. Options like night guards or stress management techniques can help mitigate this issue.

3. You Don’t Chew Your Nails or Ice or Use Your Teeth as Tools

Similar to grinding, chewing your nails or ice, or using your teeth as tools to open bottles or bite off clothes tags can damage certain cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as veneers. Adopting better habits will help preserve the longevity of your cosmetic dental work.

4. You Are Comfortable with Restorative Work Being Performed

Restorative work may be necessary to prepare your teeth for certain cosmetic procedures. Examples of restorative work include filling cavities or removing rotted teeth. Being open to these preparatory steps will ensure that your cosmetic dentistry results are optimal.

5. You Understand Most Dental Insurance Plans Will Not Cover Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Affording cosmetic dentistry has never been easier; however, most dental insurance plans will not help. Options to help fit a beautiful smile into your budget include convenient payment and financing plans and spreading treatments out over time. Discussing financial plans with Aglow Dental Studio can make these procedures more accessible.

6. Your Teeth Have Sufficient Enamel

Certain cosmetic procedures, such as veneers, adhere to your enamel. Without enough enamel, a veneer will not have a sufficiently strong bonding surface to adhere to. Ensuring that your teeth are suitable for these procedures is crucial for long-lasting results.
