How a Dentist Can Fix Your Teeth

Posted on: February 15, 2018

TeethIf you are self-conscious about your smile due to broken, cracked, chipped, discolored, stained or otherwise flawed chompers or gums, it is time to fix your teeth.  A cosmetic dentist can fix your teeth so you look young, vibrant and healthy.

Here is a look at the many options available to remedy your smile.

Cosmetic Bonding

If you have a chipped tooth or a cracked tooth on one of the chompers visible when your lips part to smile, talk or eat, you are likely quite self-conscious. Rely on your dentist to fix your teeth with cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding involves the use of a resin material with a hue similar to natural teeth.

A special light is used to bond the material directly to the tooth in question.  This is an affordable, painless and fast means of rectifying a flawed tooth in one visit to the dentist.

Fix Your Teeth With Teeth Whitening

If you brush and floss your teeth each day only to still have stubborn stains or discoloration, reach out to a  dentist for a professional teeth whitening.  Your dentist has access to powerful teeth whitening agents that you can’t find at the store.

It is even possible for the dentist to lighten your teeth by several shades in an hour or less.  Once your teeth are whitened, you will jump at the opportunity to laugh, smile, talk and eat in the presence of friends, coworkers, family and others.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ideal for those who desire a full smile makeover.  Once your new porcelain veneers are in place, you will be proud to bare your teeth in front of others.  Veneers are incredibly thin pieces of porcelain that stick to the front of the teeth.

Your dentist will invest the time and effort necessary to guarantee your veneers are the perfect fit, shape and texture.  This procedure requires a slight shaving of the tooth enamel so you should know it is irreversible.  However, once you see the results, you will have no regrets.

Dental Crowns

Patients who have significant damage to their front teeth or are completely missing teeth will find dental crowns are the perfect option.  Dental crowns are nearly always added to dental implants that replace missing or heavily damaged teeth.

Today’s porcelain crowns are remarkably stain resistant, especially compared to other options like cosmetic bonding.  You will not hesitate to smile, talk and eat while seated near others once your dental crowns are in place.

Fix Your Smile with Enamel Contouring and Shaping

The dentist can remove or contour your dental enamel to enhance the look of your chompers.  Dentists sometimes combine contouring and shaping with bonding.  This is the perfect means of altering the shape, length and position of teeth.  Whether you have overlapping, chipped or crooked teeth, you should discuss enamel contouring and shaping with your dentist.
