Improve your smileDo you have imperfections in your smile that you would like to turn into strengths? Perhaps you have a gap between your teeth, cracked teeth, a chipped tooth or several discolored teeth. You should know these aesthetic flaws can be corrected to return your smile to glory.

Here is a look at the many ways in which a dentist can improve your smile.

Teeth Whitening

There is no need to live life with yellow, stained or discolored teeth. Such unsightly teeth damage pride, reduce confidence and make the person uncomfortable in social situations. We can whiten discolored and stained teeth in a single visit to the dentist, providing a lovely white smile without delay. We can whiten teeth with a bleaching material, a dental laser or other specialized solutions.

Improve Your Smile With Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can help reshape a smile for a patient to have the shape of smile that he or she desires. Dental veneers are the optimal oral health solution for misshapen, chipped and discolored teeth. Applying veneers is not invasive or complex. A dental veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that we place over teeth to boost appearance. The advantage of veneers over bonding is that veneers last longer.

Dental Implants

Those who are missing teeth will find dental implants quite helpful. We can put a dental implant in place of the missing root. The actual implant is a small post consisting of metal. The placement of dental implants requires a few steps. The dentist begins by analyzing the structure of the patient’s jaw. If healthy, the dentist inserts a metal post in the missing tooth’s gum.

We can shape the false tooth and put it into position along the metal post. Once in place, the dentist colors and shapes it to make it appear similar to the rest of the tooth. The end result is reliable, strong and visually appealing dental implants that look and function just like real teeth.

Crowns Will Help Improve Your Smile

Patients who have an eyesore in the form of a cracked or chipped tooth will benefit from a crown. The placement of a crown enhances the look and strength of the tooth. Once the crown is in place, there is less of a chance for a subsequent break. Furthermore, covering up the physical damage makes the smile look that much more appealing. By covering the enamel, we can also help prevent bacteria from moving into the teeth, ultimately decreasing the chances of a nerve infection.

Straighten and Beautify Your Teeth With Invisalign®

Invisalign® is the top alternative to traditional braces and other conventional orthodontic appliances. Invisalign® is a translucent tooth aligner that other people cannot easily see. This is the oral health solution you have been looking for to straighten out those crooked teeth. Give Invisalign® a try, have the aligners fit along your teeth and it will not be long until you have the lovely straight teeth you have always hoped for.
