Are you not happy with how your smile looks? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Roughly 70% of Americans share the same feeling about how their teeth look when they smile, according to the New York Post. Fortunately, you can do something about this by seeing the cosmetic dental professional at Phillips & Schmitt. Here are some ways you can improve the appearance of your smile.
Want to have the appearance of a great smile? The veneer process is a little different than a full coverage crown in that less of your tooth structure is taken away versus a crown. Depending on the location of your mouth and your history of clenching or grinding your teeth, a veneer can be a great option for you! The better you take care of the veneers, and allow us to regularly do an oral exam, the longer they will last.
Get Dental Crowns
If you have a cracked tooth, a cosmetic dentist will be able to fit a dental crown on top of it to protect it. The dental crown looks and acts just like a regular tooth but made out of either a tooth-colored high-strength metal ceramic or gold depending on the location or course. Also, if you get a dental implant, the dental crown will act like your regular tooth. You’ll be able to eat and drink much like you did before but try to avoid certain hard foods like ice cubes to avoid the risk of fracturing your new dental work.
Get Dental Implants
If you struggle with gaps in your smile from missing teeth, you have options! Many people who have sporting accidents, tooth decay, and a variety of other issues, end up needing full dental implants to make their smiles whole again. These implants will work themselves in seamlessly with the rest of your natural smile, anywhere in the mouth, so you can work on gaining your confidence back!
There are a lot of other options, like getting braces or clear aligners or having dental bonding done. Our team at Phillips & Schmitt will be able to examine your mouth and come up with a great plan to get your smile looking its best. Are you looking for a cosmetic dentist? Contact us today!
