Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Everyone deserves to have a beautiful, healthy smile that helps them feel great about the way they look.
If your smile isn’t living up to your expectations, there are options that can enhance your appearance and restore the health and vitality of your smile. There are several dental treatments that can be used alone or in combination to truly transform your smile.
Improve Your Appearance and Oral Health
A more attractive smile helps you feel good about yourself, but did you know that correcting certain flaws can actually enhance your oral health?
It’s a widely accepted fact that there is a direct relationship between oral health and that of the entire body. Seeking treatment for oral health issues not only improves your appearance, but can also help protect long-term oral and general health.
Missing Teeth and Dental Implants
Missing teeth certainly have a negative impact on one’s appearance, but they can also create serious oral health problems. A dental implant is an effective solution that is actually a complete tooth replacement, not just a cosmetic coverup. The result is a fully functional, natural-looking tooth.
More importantly, the implant acts as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. This prevents deterioration of the jaw bone and shifting of surrounding teeth, which can lead to overcrowding of teeth and alignment issues.
Porcelain veneers are a great choice for correcting a variety of cosmetic flaws such as chipped, broken, or cracked teeth. Veneers conceal the appearance of slightly misaligned and irregularly shaped teeth, which also makes them effective for correcting minor dental bite problems.
Veneers are thin wafers of porcelain bonded to the surface of the tooth. Porcelain is a naturally translucent material that closely resembles the appearance of natural teeth. Better yet, they can usually be placed in only two appointments.
Dental crowns are an essential part of restorative dentistry. They serve the important function of protecting and strengthening a tooth that has been compromised due to damage or decay. Since today’s dental crowns are often made of porcelain, they not only reinforce weakened teeth but also enhance the appearance of the individual’s natural smile.
There are many options that can help restore your smile and your dentist can help you decide which will be most effective for you.
