WHAT YOU MIGHT GET FIXED WITH COSMETIC DENTISTRY
Cosmetic can be used to improve the majority of aesthetic concerns that men and women in Macedonia, OH have about the appearance of their gums and teeth. Some of the most frequent issues people have are:
- GAPS BETWEEN TEETH
Certain people like the quirkiness of a gap between their teeth, but if you are not a fan of yours, there are many cosmetic dentistry procedures that may help. Depending on the size of the gap is, you may consider custom porcelain veneers to cover the gap. A slender shell made of porcelain, veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth. A good cosmetic dentist will ensure that your veneers are natural-looking and fit comfortably. If you have gaps between a couple teeth, you may want an Invisalign treatment to correct the spacing. A series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign gently moves your teeth into the right position to eliminate gaps.
- CHIPPED TEETH
The smallest chip in your tooth can make your smile look uneven and jagged. One great option to restore your smile is veneers. A thin porcelain shell will be applied over the chipped tooth to make your smile appear better. Cosmetic veneers are customized to cover your visible top teeth, bottom teeth, or both depending on your goals. Small chips may also be improved using bonding and contouring, a procedure that uses composite resin (the same material used in fillings) to replace the chipped enamel. While bonding and contouring is a quicker procedure, the results of veneers generally last longer.
- MISSING TEETH
If you've lost a tooth or teeth, it's impacting the look of your smile. No matter how you lost the tooth, your cosmetic makeover plan can help restore your smile. A single lost tooth can be concealed with veneers or replaced with a custom restoration. An implant-supported restoration can replace one tooth or a few in your smile for a natural-looking restoration. Another option is a customized bridge that will be colored to match your natural teeth for a seamless result.
- STAINS AND DISCOLORATION
Every glass of red wine, sip of coffee, and yummy berry you enjoy can leave an impression on your smile. If you're not brushing your teeth right after every time you eat and drink (who has time for that?), then your enamel is developing stains. Over time, this can make your smile look yellow or dull. You may have tried or looked into over-the-counter teeth whitening products, but these deliver limited results. For fast, safe, and effective results, add professional teeth whitening to your smile makeover. Most dentists in Macedonia, OH offer both in-office and home teeth whitening options.
- A "GUMMY" SMILE
When the gum tissue is overgrown, it can lead to an uneven ratio of gum to teeth. This leads to what is commonly known as a "gummy" smile. While it is typically not a serious problem, it can make your teeth appear short and affect the appearance of your smile. Laser gum sculpting (also known as crown lengthening or gum contouring) removes the excess soft tissue to reveal a higher gumline. A skilled dentist in Macedonia, OH will sculpt your best gumline for a beautiful smile.
- CROOKED TEETH
Crooked and misaligned teeth have a huge effect on the look of your smile. If your teeth are crooked or misaligned you might be a great candidate for an orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign. Ideal for older teens and adults who want straighter teeth without the drawbacks of traditional metal braces, Invisalign is practically invisible and removable so it is easy to brush and floss your teeth. Straight teeth in correct alignment not only make your smile look better, but it will improve your overall oral health.
- MISSHAPEN OR SMALL TEETH
Misshapen or small teeth may benefit from porcelain veneers. Underdeveloped teeth (microdontia) may impact your smile. While this typically does not affect your dental health, it does make your smile seem immature and less attractive. A set of high-quality veneers can improve the look of your smile by covering small and/or misshapen teeth.
KEEPING YOUR SMILE GREAT
Once your smile makeover is done, it's important to keep your smile looking good. This starts with a good home oral hygiene routine (brushing, flossing, and mouthwash) that you adhere to every day. To help keep your enamel sparkling, ask your dentist for a home teeth whitening kit. With professional whitening gel and comfortable custom whitening trays, you can use your kit as needed to boost the brightness of your enamel. Besides home oral care, you must continue to go to your dentist in Macedonia, OH at least twice a year for an annual oral health examination and professional cleaning. During these visits, your dental team will look for any developing problems (like cavities and gum disease) and treat them so your smile stays beautiful and healthy.
