Solutions for Dental Imperfections
If you try to avoid smiling, dial your laugh down to a close-mouthed chuckle, or try to duck your head down when speaking out of fear that people will notice that your smile is less than perfect, then you are definitely a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. The treatment that is best for you will depend on the nature of your dental issue.
Serious issues like broken teeth are best treated using dental crowns. Missing teeth can be replaced by means of dental implants, dentures or bridge work. You could have metal fillings taken out and replaced with tooth-colored fillings. Porcelain veneers are a great means of fixing all sorts of dental imperfections, like gaps, and small chips or cracks. They can even alter the shape and size of your teeth.
Braces can also be considered a cosmetic treatment. Of course most people think of them in terms of correcting a bad bite, but they can also pull crooked teeth into alignment so that they look better. Consider Invisalign for teeth straightening. There no better treatment than that for adults.
There is no such thing as a dental imperfection that has no solution. As a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, you may even be considering a complete smile makeover, which is a selection of treatments that give you the smile you have always dreamed of.
You Do Not Have to Settle
If your appearance displeases you, you could be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry procedures. Sometimes, just a teeth whitening treatment is enough to give a patient the look they want. That much can usually be accomplished in a single office visit. If you are considering something more, though, your cosmetic dentist has a wide range of treatments available.
