Stop Hiding Smile
Are you insecure to share your smile with the world? Have you been hiding your smile so long that you forgot you could smile with your teeth showing? Whether you are missing teeth, have chipped or broken teeth, discolored teeth or any other cosmetic imperfections, you can talk to the dentist about options to help you feel more self-confident.
How to Brighten Your Smile
Years of coffee, tea, smoking or red wine can lead to the enamel darkening over time and leaving your teeth yellow or brown. When you want to change your teeth back to their whiter version, the dentist can help you whiten your teeth while protecting your enamel. The at home treatment options can also be safe if the instructions are carefully followed, but you may feel more comfortable working with your dentist to brighten your smile.
You may just want to hide your smile to cover your missing teeth, but there are other important reasons to address the gap in your smile. A missing tooth affects the surrounding teeth; the teeth on either side can shift from their original position. If you are missing more than one tooth, the holes in your smile can change the shape of your face as well.
Dental Implants Can Replace Your Missing Teeth
One of the many ways to address missing teeth is with a dental implant. The dentist secures a titanium rod below the gum line and attaches an artificial tooth to it just above the gum. A dental implant looks like a natural tooth, protects the surrounding teeth and helps keep the jawbone strong. Unlike dentures, dental implants allow you to eat and talk without worrying about slipping or moving. Dental implants can last longer than dentures and bridges, but you need to make sure you are maintaining your healthy dental habits at home. Not everyone is healthy enough for a dental implant, so it is important to talk to the dentist about all your treatment options.
Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix My Teeth?
Not everyone is born with straight, symmetrical, white teeth but with help from the dentist, no one has to know you weren’t one of those people. Cosmetic dentistry can help change the way your smile looks, but it can also change the way you carry yourself and the way that you feel about yourself.
With the right training, skills, and experience, the dentist can help change and improve many imperfections that include:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Broken or damaged teeth
- Yellowed or discolored teeth
- Worn down enamel
- Small teeth
- Large gums
- Uneven or unsymmetrical smile
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded smiles
- Gaps between teeth
- Decayed or worn teeth
Depending on the changes you are looking to make in your smile, the dentist can help you choose the best option for the results you are looking to achieve. You may need to have more than one procedure to prepare your mouth for the dental implant or the gummy smile. But you will be sharing your bright, complete smile with the world before you know it.
