Feeling self-conscious about your smile is not ideal. Refraining from smiling in photos or enjoying a bite to eat out with friends should not feel like a chore. With new technological advancements made in the dental world, there is a plethora of options to choose from to ensure your smile is something to be proud about.
One option is cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry comes with a lot of procedures attached to it, so there are many different choices to choose from. Part of cosmetic dental procedures include veneers, teeth whitening, and braces. Each of these options allow you to choose the smile of your dreams.
- Veneers is an option that provides a ‘jacket’ for your teeth. You and your dentist can choose what teeth you’d like to cover, and create custom veneers for your teeth. Veneers are specifically designed to fit your perfect size, shape and color tooth or teeth.
- Teeth whitening is exactly as it seems. Dentists do provide a professional option that perfectly whitens your teeth to your chosen shade. This is a great option if you are happy with your teeth, but would like them to be a bit brighter.
- Orthodontic procedures allow patients straight teeth. Many times, people fear smiling because they don’t have a photo ready grin. Braces can alter your teeth alignment into a perfectly straight smirk, and now there are many orthodontic routes.
Another option you can opt for is a smile reconstruction. Depending on how your teeth are faring, you may choose to go with dental implants or dentures. Each option corrects your smile with a new set of teeth. One of the main differences between the two is that dentures are typically not secured, while dental implants are. Dental implants and dentures are created specifically, like veneers, to exactly what you’d like your smile to be. This option is for those who do not have a great dental foundation and need the full reconstruction.
No matter the reason you do not like your smile, there are options available for you. Contact your dentist or schedule an appointment to achieve the smile of your dreams. You should not have to settle for anything less.
