A beautiful smile is an attainable goal with the help of cosmetic dentistry. Many people have elements of their smile that they would like to change or fix. If you are unhappy with how your smile looks then it is time to consider cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry can help you get a whiter brighter smile, address damage, and even replace teeth that are missing. If you are looking for ways to improve your smile, keep reading for an outline of some cosmetic dentistry options.
Remove or cover tooth discoloration
Discolored teeth can cause you to feel bad about your smile. If the discoloration of your teeth is impacting how you feel about your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. For surface stains, consider in-office teeth whitening. This process can whiten your teeth up to ten shades in just one hour. If surface stains are the problem, you can get significant results in just one day. Sometimes, however, tooth discoloration goes below the surface. Certain medications and injury can lead to discoloration that will not respond to surface whitening efforts. In situations where the discoloration is deeper than the surface, options such as porcelain veneers or crowns are necessary. Veneers and crowns can cover deep discoloration and provide you with a white smile that will not be impacted by the factors that cause the discoloration in the first place. If you have discolored teeth, cosmetic dentistry has treatment options that can help.
Cosmetic dentistry can help you get a beautiful smile by addressing damage. Cracks and chips are common types of tooth damage that can be fixed with cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers and esthetic bonding are both options for fixing chipped teeth. Teeth that are cracked can be covered using veneers or porcelain crowns. You can also use these cosmetic procedures to fill in gaps and reshape teeth. Cosmetic dentistry has options to treat many different types of tooth damage.
Replace missing teeth
Living with one or more missing teeth can make it difficult to function normally. It can impact your ability to eat the foods you want and may even lead you to avoid interacting with others. Tooth loss can occur because of injury, decay, gum disease, and other environmental factors. No matter what caused your tooth loss, cosmetic dentistry can help with tooth replacement. One option for tooth replacement that cosmetic dentistry offers is the dental implants. Dental implants can be put into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they impact the look of your smile. They can also be considered part of restorative dentistry because they can restore function. If your gums and jawbone are in good condition then dental implants are a tooth replacement option.
Cosmetic dentistry can help you get the beautiful smile that you want. It can restore your confidence so you can smile and interact with others without feeling self-conscious. And, in some situations, cosmetic dentistry can help restore function. If you want to learn more about your options for cosmetic dentistry, schedule a consultation at Coral West Dental.
