The focus of cosmetic dentistry is to create a beautiful smile. The color, alignment, position, shape, and size of your teeth will look fantastic and fit in well with the shape of your mouth and face. Most people do not have “perfect teeth.” There are many factors that contribute to misaligned or crooked teeth. For example, did you suck your thumb as a child or breathe through your mouth due to allergies? Were your wisdom teeth extracted after growing in? Thumb sucking and mouth breathing can cause incorrect jaw and dental development (crooked teeth), even more so than genetics. Wisdom teeth can crowd your mouth, pushing the other teeth out of alignment.
There are many options available to give you that “Hollywood smile.” What you will need for a perfect smile will depend on how much work needs to be done. Choices include teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, Invisalign or orthodontics, dental implants, and more.
After a thorough dental evaluation, you and your dentist can decide on the best options available to fit your needs and budget to obtain the smile you’ve always wanted.
If you are in need of a crown or a bridge, there are numerous advantages today that preserve tooth structure while still being very esthetic and strong. New all-ceramic options offer you all the strength of the conventional structures while affording you an alternative to metals in your mouth if you are so inclined.
The ability to straighten your crooked smile with clear aligners is similar to retainers. Not having to wear those metal braces is where this new technology has benefitted many folks. You will smile beautifully while also creating a better condition for less food traps and healthier gums. Find out if you are a candidate now.
The replacement of one or all missing teeth has come a long way since its inception. This ever-emerging technology is creating avenues for the average person to replace their missing teeth without much fuss. A single tooth lost used to necessitate a bridge where the adjacent teeth had to be cut down in order to replace ONE tooth. This option is proven, and in certain cases, it is still the treatment of choice. But in many other circumstances, it may not be the best choice. Consider implant dentistry as an available option to replace your missing tooth or complete set of teeth. The options with implants are limitless.
