Everyone deserves to have a beautiful, healthy smile that makes them feel great about the way they look and helps gives their self-confidence a boost.
If your smile isn’t quite living up to your expectations, you do have options that can enhance your appearance and restore the health and vitality of your smile. Several dental treatments can be used alone or in combination to truly transform your smile.
Improve Your Appearance and Oral Health
An attractive smile helps you feel good about yourself, but did you know that correcting certain flaws can actually enhance your oral health?
It’s a widely accepted fact that there is a direct relationship between the health of your mouth and your overall health and well-being. Seeking treatment for these problems not only improves your appearance but also protects your long-term oral and general health.
Missing Teeth and Dental Implants
Missing teeth certainly have a negative impact on your appearance, but they can also create serious oral health problems. A dental implant is an effective solution that is actually a complete tooth replacement, not just a cosmetic cover-up. The result is a fully functional, natural-looking tooth.
More importantly, the implant acts as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. This prevents deterioration of the jaw bone and shifting of surrounding teeth, which can lead to overcrowding of teeth and alignment issues.
Porcelain veneers are a great choice for correcting a wide variety of cosmetic flaws like chipped, broken, or cracked teeth. Veneers conceal the appearance of slightly misaligned and irregularly shaped teeth, which also makes them effective for correcting minor dental bite problems.
Veneers are made of thin wafers of either porcelain or ceramic bonded to the surface of your tooth. There are naturally translucent materials that closely resemble the appearance of your natural teeth. Better yet, they can usually be placed in only two appointments.
Dental crowns are an essential part of restorative dentistry. They serve the important function of protecting and strengthening a tooth that has been compromised due to damage or decay. Since today’s dental crowns are made of ceramic, they not only reinforce weakened teeth but also enhance the appearance of your natural smile.
There are many options that can help restore your smile to its full beauty and function, but only your dentist can help you decide which will be most effective for you.
