How Cosmetic Dental Treatment Can Improve Your Overall Health

Cosmetic dental treatment including whitening, veneers, and gum recontouring is designed to improve the look and feel of your smile. But these treatments can also improve your oral health – and even your overall health! – in a few surprising ways.

Beyond cavity prevention, a beautifully white and even smile allows for more comprehensive dental care. That’s because cosmetic dentistry involves a personalized treatment plan you can refer back to both at home and in your dentist’s office. As with any aspiration, setting a goal helps you stay on track, so if your goal is to create and maintain an ideal smile, you can take regular, small steps to achieve it.

At Russo Dentistry, we practice general, cosmetic, and specialized dentistry to provide full-service, customized treatment. Our experience treating the full range of dental concerns has taught us that cosmetic dentistry is excellent for motivating people to stay on top of their oral health. Put simply: looking the way you want helps you feel the way you want—and the state of your smile has a huge impact on both!

Read on to learn how a professional cosmetic dentist plus high-tech cosmetic dental treatments can achieve your smile and health goals all at once.


  • Dentists experienced in cosmetic treatment understand all factors related to healthy teeth. If you’re seeking cosmetic improvement, make sure you choose a trained general and cosmetic dentist like Dr. Justin Russo. As a cosmetic dentist in Raleigh, he knows what to look for before, during, and after your treatment to ensure the teeth and gums are healthy as well as beautiful.


  • Cosmetic teeth whitening and other treatments can be done quickly at a modern dental office. In as little as one session, Philips Zoom® whitening can brighten your entire smile. Porcelain veneers, gum recontouring and other cosmetic treatments are a bit more involved, but still fit easily into your busy daily life.


  • As with all investments, you’ll want to protect your new smile. Though more affordable now than ever before, cosmetic dental treatments are still an investment. Once you’ve put additional time and money into your new smile, regular care – both professional and at-home – becomes second-nature to you. This maintains the results of your treatment and helps you continually reap their benefits.


  • Your teeth will not only look and feel better, but also function properly! While many dental issues like a gummy smile or shifting teeth are primarily cosmetic concerns, they also negatively effect your teeth’s ability to do their most important jobs—speaking and eating! Straight, white, ideally sized teeth are also highly functional teeth able to eat the healthiest foods of all textures. They’re also easier to brush properly, so you whole body stays healthy—not to mention your confidence level!


At Russo Dentistry in Durham, NC, we offer a range of cosmetic treatment options performed exclusively by experienced professionals, start-of-the-art technology, and a fully customized approach.
