What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do for You?

Posted on: March 22, 2018

Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic dentistry has helped many people restore their smiles. Having badly stained, broken, or missing teeth can lead to people making negative assumptions about you and your hygiene habits. It makes you appear unclean.

Having a great set of teeth has the opposite effect on people. People tend to assume you are younger, richer, and more successful. Having teeth you can be proud of also affects the way you carry yourself. When you feel good about the way your teeth look, you are more confident when you interact with others.

The main cause of discoloration and damage to your teeth is from tooth decay. When you eat and drink, food particles that are stuck on your teeth are converted into acids that damage the enamel of your teeth. Accidents, as you move about or while playing sports, can also lead to damage or the loss of a tooth. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry can correct a vast majority of teeth-related issues. Here are some issues that are regularly addressed by cosmetic dentists:

Look: cosmetic dentistry solutions

1. Chipped teeth

Your dentist has a few options when it comes to restoring a chipped tooth/teeth. Depending on the size of the chip, your oral professional might decide to file down the area around the chip to make it look natural, fill the chip with dental bonding or cover it up with a veneer.

2. Broken teeth

Broken teeth can lead to more serious issues if left unaddressed. The root of the tooth can become infected, which would require a root canal procedure. Regardless of if a root canal is needed to address an infection in your broken tooth or not, your dentist will cover it up with a crown to protect the nerves inside the tooth. The crown will look just like your natural teeth, so your smile is restored.

3. Poorly aligned teeth

There are a handful of options when it comes to fixing improperly aligned teeth, and they all involve a prosthetic that gradually pushes your teeth into the proper position over a period of time. Traditional braces used to be the norm a few decades ago, but less visible options are now available. Clear braces like Invisalign® are becoming increasingly popular since they address alignment issues and are barely visible.

4. Missing teeth

Your cosmetic dentist probably spends a lot of time dealing with missing teeth. There are a handful of options for this issue like implants, dentures, and bridges. Implants are considered to be the most effective solution since taking care of them is not much different from taking care of your natural teeth.

5. Stained and discolored teeth

Stains and discoloration on the teeth are common problems dentists often find themselves dealing with. A professional cleaning will remove tartar (which gives your teeth a yellow tint) and stains with a metal scraper and vibrating tool that knocks tartar off your teeth. Your oral practitioner can also perform a teeth whitening procedure for even whiter teeth.
