9 Signs You Can Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry
Feeling apprehensive about your teeth? You're not alone. Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular dentistry services because everyone wants to have beautiful, pearly white teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that encompasses many services including tooth whitening, veneers, implants, crowns and more. If you're unhappy with your teeth and simply want to love your own smile, then services from an experienced and caring dentist in Raleigh can help. Below are nine signs that you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry.
1. Misaligned Teeth
Misaligned teeth are a common problem. Many people have this problem corrected in childhood, but if you're an adult, it's not too late. Many adults are hesitant to get braces because they don't like the look of braces for their teeth.
If that describes you, there's good news! Invisalign aligners are made from clear resin. When the aligners are placed on your teeth, they can't be seen. Invisalign aligners can correct your dental problems without drawing attention to the problem.
2. Teeth are Stained or Discolored
All that coffee and wine tastes great going down, but now your smile is paying the price! Teeth whitening can solve the problem. Tooth whitening is a relatively low-cost way to make your teeth look whiter and brighter. Tooth whitening from the dentist can last for a long time before another treatment is needed.
For a more permanent solution, look at porcelain veneers. Veneers are a white cover placed on the front of your teeth. Veneers do not stain and make your teeth look uniformly beautiful.
3. Teeth are Different Shapes and Sizes
Teeth clustered together that are a variety of shapes and sizes can be unattractive. Porcelain veneers and/or dental bonding can reshape and resize your teeth to make them look symmetrical. Work with your dental professional to decide whether veneers or dental bonding are best for your needs.
4. Missing Teeth
Missing teeth are a cosmetic problem, but they can present other challenges as well. When you have a missing tooth, your other teeth may start to shift to fill the gap in your mouth. This can lead to misalignment that can cause wear and tear on your teeth, poor digestion, poor oral hygiene and more.
Dental implants are the best option for missing teeth. These prosthetic teeth are implanted into your mouth just like your natural teeth. They never come out and are designed to be maintained much like your other teeth - with brushing and flossing. If you're missing teeth, talk to your dental professional about implants.
5. Gummy Smile
When you smile do you see a lot of gum tissue? That’s called a gummy smile. Williams, Daily and Frazier Dental can contour your gum line to reduce the gum tissue and expose more teeth, exposing more of your beautiful white smile.
6. Gaps Between Teeth
Gaps in your teeth can make your smile look strange. Gapped teeth can be solved with bonding or veneers, and even Invisalign, depending on the nature of the problem. Your dentist can help you decide which service is best.
7. Chipped, Broken, or Worn Teeth
Chipped, broken or worn teeth can be a disheartening problem. At Williams, Daily and Frazier, we use crowns, veneers, and bonding to help fully restore your teeth to full health, function, and strength.
8. Previous Dental Work Looks Unnatural
Dental work should look natural, but if your dental work is very old or if you were seeing a dentist with less experience, you may not be happy with your previous cosmetic dentistry results. If your old dental work needs a fresh set of eyes, we can touch it up by removing the old restorations, and replacing them with new ones.
9. Your Embarrassed to Smile
If you feel embarrassed to smile, you need to come see us. No matter what the problem, we'll have suggestions to help you feel confident in your smile again!
