Cosmetic Dentistry procedure does lay down some limitations on people who smoke or have been a chronic smoker. Smoking has been considered as one of the major cause for tooth loss. Also people who smoke are at a higher risk of gum diseases, Loss of bone structure, Swelling of salivary glands, and risks of inflicting oral cancer. One restriction for smokers planning to undergo cosmetic dentistry procedure is for dental implants. Dental implant restoration process is fusing an artificial root into your jaw bone so that it can support a replacement tooth. Smoking can make it difficult for the root to get fused into the bone. Also unhealthy gums may result in dental implant failure.
