Dental Options To Improve Your Smile

Posted on: May 21, 2018

SmileMany people are always looking for new ways to improve their smile. The smile is one of the first things others notice about you. Poorly-conditioned teeth can leave people feeling conscious about the way they look when you are interacting with people. It can also lead to a poor first impression since people make assumptions about you based on the condition of your teeth.

Healthy teeth are viewed as signs of youth and success, while stained or discolored teeth are views as signs of poor hygiene and age. That is why most people feel more confident when they have a great smile. Thanks to breakthroughs in dental technology, anyone can now have the perfect smile they have always dreamed of.

Here is a look at some dental options that can improve a smile.

1. Composite bonding

Composite bonding can change the shape or color of your teeth. It is a great solution for broken, poorly-shaped, or badly-stained teeth. The bond is soft while applying it to the teeth and then hardens into a specific shape.

2. Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening products can whiten teeth at various shades of whiteness. Some whitening products are available at your local supermarket but are not as strong as the type of whitening agents a dentist can use. You will get faster results when you go for in-office whitening procedures or get a customized whitening tray and solution instead of anything from the store.

3. Veneers

Veneers are a great way to address discolored and stained teeth that whitening products are not able to restore. Each veneer is a thin shell that acts as a cover for the front of a tooth, hiding any stains or other imperfections behind it. Veneers typically consist of porcelain and ceramics to look just like natural teeth. Veneers are a great way to quickly get the perfect smile you want. The materials that make them are resistant to staining, so it is easier to keep veneers white compared to your natural teeth.

4. Dental crowns

A dental crown can restore a badly-damaged or discolored tooth. Crowns serve as a protective cover that keeps the damaged tooth safe from acids and other irritants in the mouth. Crowns can consist of porcelain, ceramics, and metals.

5. Braces

Braces are an effective way to address alignment issues. There are many different types of braces, but they all work by applying constant pressure on your teeth, forcing them into the proper position over time. Traditional metal braces were the norm a few decades ago, but there are less visible options available nowadays. Clear braces like Invisalign allow you to properly align your teeth without having to deal with all the hassle that comes with traditional braces.
