Your smile is the essence of you. It’s what you show new friends, what boosts your confidence around strangers, and what helps you speak and chew properly. When teeth are discolored, broken, or crooked, we often feel as though we aren’t good enough because of our damaged smile.
It’s never too late to make your smile the most stunning thing about you. Your teeth are there for life—shouldn’t your smile be just as dazzling as you are? Here’s how you can improve your smile’s appearance to make you glow again!
Many people don’t realize that our tooth enamel is actually porous. This means that over time, teeth will discolor and stain based on what we eat. For instance, if you enjoy red wine, coffee, or tea frequently, your teeth are likely to look dull or have a slight brown or yellow tinge to them. Teeth whitening is a simple procedure that takes only an hour. You can customize your shade of white, from subtly luminous to a dramatic difference based on your preference. You’ll be amazed at how much white teeth increase your confidence!
There are several types of cosmetic dentistry besides teeth whitening that can improve your smile. If you have gapped teeth, consider dental bonding. Dental bonding lasts several years and is an excellent choice for gaps, chips, and and even decay. Dental crowns are another great choice for improving your smile—these are best for broken teeth or teeth that have unusually large cavities.
Dental veneers can effectively change the color and shape of your entire smile. From uneven teeth to chipped and crooked teeth, veneers can totally transform your current smile to the smile of your dreams. Talk with your dentist about which cosmetic dentistry options are right for you!
It’s never too late to correct problems with your smile. Misaligned bites can not only create crooked teeth, but can even lead to bigger problems such as teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Correcting your smile with braces is becoming a more accepted options for adults—in fact, nearly 50% of all people that have braces are over the age of 18! If you’re self-conscious about having braces, talk to your dentist about Invisalign to correct your smile.
Replacing missing teeth is crucial. Even one missing tooth can affect the appearance and function of your entire smile. The longer you wait to replace your missing tooth, the more the surrounding teeth will shift to compensate for the loss. Dental implants are often your best choice when it comes to replacing missing teeth. This is because they stimulate your jaw bone to hold your teeth in place, minimizing any change you experience in your smile.
Remove Amalgam Fillings
Get those silver fillings out and white fillings in! If you’re tired of seeing your silver fillings and wondering what others think, you can talk to your dentist about removing them. Today, there are many options for dental fillings that don’t involve silver amalgams. Creating a more cohesive white smile can help you feel stunning again!
When you’re ready to stop compromising on your smile, schedule an appointment with your dentist. Talk to him or her about your fears and concerns. Together, you can have a private consultation about what your best options are for creating your perfect smile. You’ll never look back!
