Everyone would like to have an irresistible smile, but not everyone does. Cosmetic dentistry can address a variety of issues that could affect the appearance of your smile. Missing teeth leave large gaps that can ruin your smile. Discoloration is not only unappealing; it also adds years to your appearance, causing you to look older than your age. Misshapen teeth, slightly crooked teeth and small gaps between teeth are all dental issues that can make your smile less than perfect. Cosmetic dentistry may be the solution to all these, and more.
Globally, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic services offered by dentists. This procedure is one of the best ways to improve a smile quickly and easily. Teeth get discolored over time because of the foods we eat. Dark berries, wine and juices and even some seasonings when consumed on a regular basis can stain teeth, causing them to darken. Professional whitening can remove those stains and make teeth whiter and brighter in one visit to the dental clinic.
Whitening your teeth is also an easy way to erase years from your appearance. Dull, dingy teeth make you look older; whitening them gives you a fresher, more youthful look. But what if your teeth do not respond to whitening? This can be the case for some whose teeth have a mottled look caused by medication or illness. There is a solution.
You can have a smile makeover resulting in a perfect Hollywood smile with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are used to mask a host of dental flaws like discoloration, small gaps between teeth and misshapen teeth. They can also be used to lengthen teeth that seem too small for facial proportions. While this cosmetic service may not be for everyone, if your smile leaves much to be desired, a consultation with the dentist about dental veneers is worth pursuing.
Some procedures are both restorative and cosmetic. Missing teeth can affect your appearance, but they can also affect your overall health. In fact, people who are missing all their teeth have a higher risk of chronic kidney disease. Missing a few teeth, particularly back teeth used for grinding and pulverizing food, can affect your digestive system and prevent your body from absorbing needed nutrients.
Dentures replace those missing teeth. These removable devices restore your smile and your ability to chew your favorite foods efficiently. A full denture replaces all the teeth on the upper or lower arch. When some teeth are intact and some are missing, a partial denture is the proper solution.
