While many people opt to get their teeth straightened through cosmetic surgery to improve their smile, some dentists are saying the procedure can help one's dental health as well.
Dr. Ron Smith, a member of the board of directors at the Canadian Dental Association, told Canada.com that cosmetic dentistry can improve more than one's teeth function.
"Some of it probably has to do with the baby-boomer crowd, who are now taking better care of themselves," Smith said. "It is also important to remember that these procedures can make a significant improvement, not only in teeth appearance, but also in teeth function."
Smith added that some people who have gotten cosmetic dentistry have experienced positive changes within their lives, according to the article.
One of those changes could be a person's ability to make a good first impression during a job interview, which could be a reason why more people are opting for teeth whitening or getting adult braces.
Correcting crooked teeth can also improve routine dental care, as they may be easier to clean.
