Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? You are not alone. We know that a lot of people feel this way. After all, a smile tends to be one of the first things we notice about another person. If you have a missing tooth or your teeth are discolored, it is easy to see why you may be lacking in self-esteem. However, this is not something that you simply have to accept. There are a lot of great cosmetic dentistry procedures that really will change your life for the better. With that being said, below, we are going to take a look at six of the best to help you get a better understanding.
The first cosmetic dentistry procedure that we recommend is teeth whitening. As the name indicates, this is a procedure that is designed to make your teeth brighter and lighter. There are various approaches to this, from laser whitening to teeth bleaching. However, one thing that we certainly do not recommend is using the DIY teeth whitening kits that can be purchased today.
You may have noticed these whitening kits online and in beauty stores. While they may seem like a cheap and cost-effective solution, they are not very powerful and so they are largely ineffective. Any results that you do notice will fade very quickly, and so it really is not worth wasting your money on something like this. Instead, the best thing to do is get in touch with the team here at Rinaldi Dental Arts and we can ensure you have a pearly, white smile.
Invisalign is a cosmetic procedure that will enable you to transform your smile in a comfortable and discreet manner without the use of braces. Instead, removable aligners are used that are virtually invisible.
A lot of people do not want braces because they hate their bold, metal appearance. This may have been the only option in the past, but dental technology has progressed considerably since then. Today, Invisalign means you can get the benefits of braces without the braces. No metal wires or brackets. It is a win-win!
The aligners look like flexible, clear retainers, and they can be removed whenever you are brushing your teeth or eating.
We have also provided dental veneers for a wide range of clients, and it is no exaggeration to say that dental veneers treatment has changed their lives.
Dental veneers are custom-made, wafer-thin shells, which are in tooth-colored materials. Designed to cover the surface of your teeth, they enhance the appearance of your smile.
Dental veneers can be used to treat a wide range of oral health problems. This includes teeth with gaps between them, teeth that are irregularly shaped, uneven, or misaligned, and teeth that are broken or chipped. Dental veneers can also assist when teeth are worn down or discolored for any reason, from large resin fillings to root canal treatment.
Gum Depigmentation (Gum Bleaching)
Another cosmetic dentistry treatment that is worth considering is gum depigmentation, otherwise known as gum bleaching. If you have darker pigments in your gums, this treatment can help you to achieve the perfect smile.
There are a number of different causes of darker pigments in the gums. For a lot of people, this is simply part of their genetics. For others, it is caused due to smoking or because of some medications. Irrespective of the cause, gum bleaching can help your gums to look pink instead of being brown or black.
Dental implants are an amazing cosmetic dentistry procedure that provides a long-term solution to missing teeth or a missing tooth. There are a number of reasons for tooth loss, ranging from trauma to gum disease. No matter what has happened, there is no denying that missing teeth can be a great source of self-consciousness.
Missing teeth can cause dental problems as well and is not just a cosmetic issue. This is why it is important to do something about it. We have written more about the benefits of dental implants in an earlier post. If you want to learn more about dental implants, read that post.
Dental implants provide you with an artificial implant for your missing tooth or teeth. They are designed to fit in with the rest of your smile naturally so that no one will be able to notice the difference. You will feel like a new person!
Full Mouth Restoration
Last but not least, we have full-mouth restoration. When you have numerous missing, worn, and/or broken teeth, a full-mouth restoration may be needed. This will typically require every tooth to be restored with a combination of treatments. Some of the procedures that may be used include dental bridgework, implants, inlays, onlays, crowns, and veneers.
The key to this procedure is that it involves a number of different cosmetic dentistry treatments and other necessary procedures. Every treatment is tailored to suit your needs and your goals. The consultation is important here. Your dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your hopes for the treatment. He or she will then put a plan together to help you achieve your goals.
There is never a one-size-fits-all approach to full mouth restoration. It is all about figuring out what procedures are going to be right for you. It’s not just about making sure your smile looks amazing either but ensuring it functions correctly and is healthy for many years to come.
