Every smile makeover is customized to the patient. There is no one-size-fits-all – and that’s a good thing. It means that, no matter what, you get exactly what you want and what’s right for your oral health. In honor of this week’s inauguration, it’s time to find out whether your teeth and gums need a little change – or a big change.
Are You Embarrassed by Your Smile?
Are you self-conscious about your teeth? If you’ve reached the point where you don’t smile as often as you might want or avoid smiling for photos – or avoid taking photos altogether – it’s time to find out what a smile makeover can do for you.
- Your teeth are discolored: Tooth stains typically come from wear and tear. Your teeth work hard every day and, even with brushing and flossing, can become discolored, especially if you enjoy a lot of coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco products. A professional teeth-whitening treatment can blast away stains for a smile that is multiple shades whiter. If you have teeth that are stained because of antibiotics or have always had a yellow tint, whitening won’t work. You will need a way to conceal the discoloration and porcelain veneers are one of the best solutions.
- You get food stuck in the same pesky spots: Are you always getting food stuck in the same place(s) in your teeth? It’s annoying and, it can be unsightly if this happens between more visible teeth. No matter where this problem is occurring, talk to your Haymarket dentist about ways to correct this problem. Whether you’re aware food is stuck or not, when it sits and festers in one place, decay can develop over time. Cosmetic tooth bonding and tooth-colored fillings can fill in annoying spots, or if you have multiple problem areas, it may be time to consider Invisalign to straighten things out.
- You have missing teeth: Missing teeth are a problem both aesthetically and functionally. Having holes in your smile ruins the entire appearance of your smile. Plus, over time, missing teeth will allow neighboring teeth to shift out of place to fill in the holes, compromising your alignment. An unstimulated jawbone because of missing tooth roots can contribute to a changing face shape. Dental implants are a permanent way to replace missing teeth, but for patients who want to replace missing teeth without surgery, dental bridges and partial dentures are also viable options.
- Your teeth are crooked: Crooked or overlapping teeth interrupt the entire appearance of your smile. They can also cause oral health problems. When teeth aren’t straight, they are much harder to clean, which means you’re at risk of tooth decay and other complications. Invisalign is one of the best ways to align your teeth discreetly and quickly. The clear trays shift teeth a few at a time until your entire smile is straight.
