Smiling with your lips pursed together tightly or hiding your smile behind your hand can be a long time habit that you don’t have to continue to live with … a consultation with your cosmetic dentist can offer a solution to many conditions. Cosmetic dentistry today has a response to fit every time line and budgetary requirement.
Stained or discolored teeth – Many extrinsic stains respond beautifully to teeth whitening. Extrinsic stains are those that come from external factors such as diet, beverage consumption, smoking, and ineffective hygiene habits. Teeth can be whitened by up to eight shades in one easy visit with in-office whitening. Take home kits are also available.
Intrinsic stains can result in spots on teeth from medication or over-fluoridation. Although some of these tougher stains don’t respond as well to whitening, don’t despair. Veneers are very thin, tooth colored shells that are fabricated to fit over the front of teeth requiring repair.
Chipped or misshapen teeth – Veneers can resolve a multitude of issues. In addition to covering stubborn teeth stains, veneers can cover up chipped teeth; unsightly gaps between teeth; crooked or misshapen teeth. Made to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, veneers are considered to be the least invasive cosmetic corrective measure available as only a very small amount of enamel must be removed to permanently cement the veneers in place. One or many teeth may be corrected at the same time.
Malocclusion – This condition occurs when the upper teeth do not align properly with the bottom teeth. To correct the bite, teeth must be shifted to their proper location. People of all ages are turning to Invisalign clear, soft plastic aligners to resolve an over bite, under bite or cross bite.
Numerous advantages to Invisalign over traditional braces include the ability to be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Of course, the fact they are virtually invisible makes treatment more easily acceptable.
Missing teeth – To replace teeth and return to the lifestyle once enjoyed before tooth loss occurred, dental implants allows the patient to resume eating, speaking and smiling following treatment that rivals any other type of dental appliance available today.
