Have you ever felt the need to hide your teeth? Or even keep yourself from laughing too hard or from smiling too big? Those self-conscious feelings you feel about your teeth could have an easier fix than you expect. Don’t allow the imperfections of your teeth keep you from expressing true happiness. Cosmetic dentistry opens up a whole new world of solutions to problems you may have had for years. There are many ways to fix one problem and there are also many problems that can be fixed in one way! Read below to find out if any of the cosmetic dentistry solutions could benefit you.
Have you always felt like your teeth were just a few shades too yellow compared to what you’d like them to be? If you’ve tried the at-home white strips and haven’t been satisfied with your desire for whiter teeth than perhaps you should look into cosmetic teeth whitening as a solution. This procedure is easy, painless and typically very affordable. The whitening is usually done by activating whitening gels by powerful lasers.
Veneers are a wildly popular choice for a solution in the cosmetic dentist industry. Veneers (either composite resin or porcelain) can be used to hide various different amounts of imperfections. It’s highly common for people with badly yellowed or rotted teeth to get veneers placed. Some other problems that can be solved with veneers are cracked or chipped teeth, separated or widely spaced teeth, rotted teeth uneven or oddly shaped teeth and much more. Veneers are typically shells that are placed on the outer side of the tooth and can last for 1-2 decades depending on the material and how well they are taken care of.
This procedure allows people with missing teeth to have implants set in and crowned to look and feel like real teeth. This is not a one-day procedure, as it may take a few days for the full process to finish, and allow plenty of time for the healing process. Dental implants are metal posts that are screwed into the jaw bone and fixings are added on the sides and top to mimic the exact look of a real tooth. These are perfect for people who have brittle cavities or decaying and rotting teeth.
If you have gaps in your teeth or wide separations between all of your teeth, bonding might be your perfect solution. Bonding is a procedure in which a resin material (usually tooth-colored) is adhered to your tooth using a high-intensity curing light. The materials are added to even out or diminish the separation between teeth. This procedure is also perfect for those with chipped or cracked teeth as it is the quickest way to fix these imperfections.
Dental bridges are commonly mistaken for dentures, although they are shockingly similar! Bridges are perfect for those who are missing two or more teeth (likely in a row). Two anchors are implanted in the jaw bone to create the outer bridge area and then connected by implants placed in your mouth. The most popular kinds of dental bridges are the traditional bridges which consist of multiple (fake) teeth help together by dental crowns (also called abutments).
