We’d all love to have a great smile that shines from across a room. Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky in that regard. There are many imperfections that can make one unwilling to smile and can create the wrong impression, especially if it’s the first one. This is where a cosmetic dentist can be a big help and create a smile you’re proud to show off.
1. Replace Missing Teeth
If you have a missing tooth, whether, from an accident or the result of something like gum disease, you may be very insecure about smiling naturally and letting people see this insecurity. We specialize in cosmetic dentistry and would be more than happy to discuss your options for filling that space through methods such as dental implants. Dental Implants look and act like natural teeth, plus you don’t have to take them out at night as you do with dentures. You can eat and talk like you did in the past, with very few exceptions, like hard candy.
2. Fix Crooked Teeth
When asked, this is listed as the second most common dental insecurity, according to the New York Post. Crooked teeth are extremely common and do not condemn you to a life of smiling with closed lips. Veneers can do the trick to give your teeth an appearance of straightness. Veneers can be done in the office in one appointment with composite or they can be sent to a dental lab to be made with porcelain. We can help you decide which option would be best for you. On occasion, it is beneficial for our patients to go through orthodontic treatment to align several teeth so that we can then proceed with veneers.
3. Whiten Your Teeth
Discolored teeth are another reason to become reluctant to smile. We find the best results come from custom-made whitening trays that you put bleaching material in and wear for a period of time. This combined with an electric toothbrush and thorough dental hygiene will help keep stains off of your teeth.
Fixing your dental issues is not a matter of vanity, because while having this done can improve your self-confidence by a great amount, it also has the potential to have oral health benefits as well. All of which can lead to improvements in your life, both professional and personal. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and get started on your journey to a brighter, straighter smile.
