A bright, straight smile is a sign of attractiveness and often gains the attention and adoration of many in both professional and personal settings. Essentially, your perfect smile is not only an investment in your oral health and hygiene, but it can also help build your confidence and boost your self-esteem. If you suffer from cracked, missing, or otherwise imperfect teeth, you may be wondering what treatments are available to help you achieve that perfect smile you desire.
Perhaps braces or Invisalign are not enough to fix your dental issues. If that is the case, there are definitely other options out there worth looking into. Dentures, crowns, bridges, and veneers are all treatments that can help correct your smile and improve your look. Read below to discover more ways that you can get a dazzling smile using these popular methods.
Fixed Cracked Teeth
Cracked or chipped teeth can be unsightly and unattractive. They can easily put a damper on an otherwise beautiful smile. With the use of veneers or crowns and bridges (which can cap the chipped teeth), you can restore your chipped teeth to their former glory without compromising the integrity of your natural teeth.
Build a Strong Foundation
Dental implants are secured into your jaw to hold crowns and bridges in place so that you build a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Once you heal from the procedure, your quality of life will improve, as you will be able to chew, speak, and smile without worry. Your artificial teeth will seem just as natural to you as your original teeth with the added benefit that they will be much more effective, strong, and better looking.
Fill in Gaps and Missing Teeth
If you are looking to fill in gaps where there are missing teeth, then dentures, crowns/bridges, and veneers are all possible and effective options. These procedures are not only completely safe, but they are also well-suited for many. Dentists can match your existing tooth shade and colour so that your new artificial teeth blend in seamlessly with the rest of your mouth.
Contour Your Gum Line
Gum contouring can be done for those who are self-conscious of their smiles due to excess gums showing. The dentist will safely remove small parts of the gums in order to achieve a less “gummy” smile.
Full Mouth Reconstructions
If you need a complete smile makeover, then crowns/bridges, veneers, dentures, or a combination of these treatments can definitely help you achieve your goals. Your dentist will work with you to come up with a unique and effective treatment plan utilizing these procedures. There is no issue too complex when it comes to these treatments. If you are struggling with decay, discolouration, and cracked or crooked teeth, then you may require a full mouth reconstruction.
Use Braces or Invisalign
Of course, traditional braces and invisible braces (such as Invisalign) are great methods to align your teeth and fix your bite (if you suffer from an overbite or underbite). Braces generally take one to three years to complete treatment, and you will have to wear a retainer after being treated to maintain your smile. If you think this is a good option for you, speak with your dentist who can schedule a consultation to get started with treatment.
Get Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening done in a clinical setting is a great way to whiten your teeth without damaging the enamel. It can brighten your teeth noticeably in just one visit! As well, professional teeth whitening gives you better, quicker results than at-home whitening kits.
Your dentist will assess your teeth to make sure you are a good candidate and then walk you through the process so that you are comfortable and aware of all the steps. Professional teeth whitening is a great choice if you are bothered by tooth discolouration or if you would like to achieve a brighter smile overall.
Continue Oral Hygiene
Of course, keeping your mouth clean and fresh is essential to achieving a great, healthy smile. After your treatment or full mouth reconstruction, you will want to ensure you keep up with aftercare and oral hygiene to maintain a beautiful smile. Nothing ruins a good smile more than unsightly plaque and hardened tartar. Continue to brush and floss daily after your treatment, and speak to your dentist should any problems arise after completing treatment.
Dentures, veneers, crowns, and bridges help fix a multitude of issues including (but not limited to) broken or damaged teeth, decay, missing teeth, and discolouration. Why not achieve your perfect smile with these effective treatments?
