Cosmetic dentistry can enhance one’s appearance by correcting dental stain, chipped enamel, uneven dentition, and unwanted gaps between teeth. But your dentist can help improve your overall dental health by assisting you in replacing missing teeth that will ultimately provide the beautiful smile you want while helping you chew correctly and speak effortlessly, as well.
Dental Stain Corrections
Visiting your dentist for teeth cleaning every six months does wonders for keeping plaque build-up controlled; and this visit can help remove topical stain. But for many, deeper dental stain and teeth discoloration still detracts from their smile. For these patients, several options are available:
A brighter smile through teeth whitening can provide a subtle, but noticeable change in your appearance. Teeth whitening acquired through your dentist promises many advantages over other outlets. Since your dentist is licensed to provide teeth whitening, you are assured that products are safe and effective. Additionally, you have a dental professional that can address any questions or concerns you may have.
Deeper dental stain may require something more to correct. Porcelain veneers are very thin, tooth-colored shells that correct many dental problems. In addition to deep dental stain, veneers are appropriate to manage the appearance of chipped enamel, uneven teeth, and gaps between teeth. Veneers are affixed to the front of teeth concealing many cosmetic concerns.
Missing or Damaged Teeth
The availability of composite resin makes correcting dental decay or chipped teeth an easy fix. This tooth-colored material can be fashioned by your dentist to make virtually undetectable repairs. Old silver fillings can be replaced to provide a safe and aesthetically pleasing improvement.
When one or more teeth are lost or never properly erupted, having some kind of dental appliance like a bridge, partial, or denture can allow the patient to chew their favorite foods; speak clearly; and smile broadly without embarrassment. A visit with your dentist will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
A very popular tooth replacement option is with dental implants. A small titanium post is embedded in gum tissue that will eventually become a permanent part of your dental anatomy. A cosmetic restoration will be attached that will provide the closest thing to having biological teeth in place.
