When it comes to having a smile you can be proud of, many people put off seeking the dental help and advice they need to make the changes that could impact their lives in a positive way. Your smile is one of the first things people see when they meet you, and it can be overwhelming to think about having your teeth fixed if you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile, or you don’t know your options about making your teeth brighter, whiter, straighter, and stronger. There are a number of ways to redefine your smile through cosmetic dentistry. Let’s review your options, so you aren’t left wondering what’s out there for you.
Dental veneers are a semi-permanent solution to cracked or chipped teeth. They provide you with brighter and white teeth, and you can opt to have one tooth or all of your teeth veneered. Veneers work by covering your existing tooth or teeth to create a new tooth. Veneers can change the way your teeth and mouth look quickly and easily. If you are looking for a fast solution that can have dramatic impact on your teeth, you might want to consider dental veneers.
If you have one or two teeth that are less than perfect, you might consider having a crown placed over the existing tooth or teeth. Crowns are made from porcelain and can provide much- needed stability, safety, and structure to a tooth if it is damaged, or isn’t looking as great as you might have hoped. Crowns are often used as part of cosmetic surgery and treatments related to root canals. But if you want to improve your smile, crowns are a great option.
Whiten Your Teeth
If you are in the market for a brighter and whiter smile, but you aren’t interested in undergoing any lengthy processes or procedures, you might start by having your teeth whitened. Tooth whitening is safe for your teeth, and if done correctly, by a trained professional in a dental office, you can enjoy whiter teeth for a long time. At-home kits that you buy at a pharmacy or department store don’t work as well as professional whitening kits and treatments you can get from your dentist’s office. Be sure to have the pros whiten your teeth to avoid pain or sensitivity from developing in the long run.
Whether you want to replace all of your teeth, or you just need to fix the way one tooth looks, cosmetic dentistry can change your life and your smile for the better. Not only can you improve your smile, but you can also improve your overall health, tooth function, and more. When your teeth don’t function they way they were meant to, it can lead to long-term problems such as grinding of teeth or chipped or cracked teeth. Getting crowns, veneers, or any number of other dental treatments for cosmetic purposes do more than just make teeth look great; they make them last for a long time too.
