Unexpected benefits of cosmetic dentistry treatment in Glen Allen, VA

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment, Richmond Family Dentistry

“Cosmetic dentistry” describes any treatment performed specifically to improve the appearance of the smile. In Glen Allen, VA, it means a bit more. Dr. Olivia Hart and her team at Richmond Family Dentistry have been enhancing smiles for many years. They find that patients experience some surprising benefits.

Improved oral health

A cosmetic dental treatment, whether teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or a complex smile makeover, is a conscious investment of time and financial resources. Most patients take extra steps to protect that investment. They may:

  • Brush and floss more diligently.
  • Wear a mouth guard.
  • Be sure to keep regular checkup appointments.

They tend to get fewer cavities, and have reduced risk of gum disease.

Overall wellness

Some individuals take preservation of their gorgeous new smiles a step further. They quit smoking or chewing tobacco to keep teeth sparkling. They reduce consumption of staining coffee, tea, and red wine, as well as sweets. These tooth-healthy habits are good for whole body wellness, too.


The appearance of your smile has tremendous impact on how others see you and how you view yourself. The boost in self-confidence triggered by cosmetic dentistry can inspire patients to take renewed pride in their appearance. It is not unusual to see that a patient has a new hairstyle, a fresh approach to fashion, or has lost weight at the next regular exam appointment.

We can’t promise all of this from a brighter smile, uniform size and spacing of teeth, or replacement of a missing tooth. However, we can assure you that Dr. Hart will take as much time as necessary to understand your appearance concerns. She will help you design a cosmetic dentistry treatment strategy that fits your needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Your new smile starts with a call to Richmond Family Dentistry in Glen Allen, VA at (804) 381-6238.

We love Dr. Hart and her staff. Not only is Dr. Hart knowledgeable and exceptionally thoughtful in her care, but she also has a supportive staff (special shout-out to Sandy!) that makes our visits pleasant and easy. I love knowing that I can trust all of them with my family’s dental needs.
