    Are your teeth cracked, chipped, or discolored? Do you have an overbite, an underbite, or are your teeth crooked? Are you missing any of your teeth? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, chances are that you’ve been hiding your smile.

    Your smile says a lot about you, and it makes a huge difference in your confidence and your overall happiness. Considering the fact that the average adult smiles up to 50 times a day, if you aren’t happy with your teeth, showing them off with a smile can have a huge impact on your self-esteem. Not only does the appearance of your teeth affect how you feel about yourself, but it can also affect the way others view you. Stop hiding your smile! With cosmetic dentistry, you can completely transform the look of your teeth and have a smile that you will be proud to show off. No matter what condition your teeth are in, there is a cosmetic treatment that can correct them. What types of treatment options are available? Here’s a look at some of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments.

    Teeth Whitening

    If your teeth are yellowed, brownish, or just dull, teeth whitening can dramatically improve their appearance.

    Tooth enamel is prone to staining, and overtime, the teeth teeth naturally become discolored. The foods that you drink and the beverages that you drink can alter their color, as can certain medications. Regular brushing and flossing can help, but they can only do so much. Commercial teeth whitening products can make some improvement, but it’s usually slight. If you really want to get a gleaming white smile, then you should consider having professional teeth whitening done by a cosmetic dentist. There are several teeth whitening options available. A reputable cosmetic dentist will assess your teeth and recommend the most effective treatment for you so that you can restore the color of your teeth.

    Veneers and Crowns

    If your teeth are cracked or chipped, or if you have large gaps between them, veneers and crowns can help to improve the appearance of your smile.

    Dental veneers are made of a thin porcelain material and are applied over the front of your teeth, creating a shell that improves their look without completely changing them. This treatment is a simple and effective way to improve the appearance of discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of broken, chipped, or cracked, teeth. They can also be used to fill in spaces. Dental crowns are also made of porcelain, but they are placed over the entire tooth and can improve the appearance of dull, discolored, cracked, and chipped teeth; however, they can also be used as a solution for broken teeth and decay. In other words, crowns can be used to improve some functional issues, as well as the look of the teeth.

    Teeth Straightening with Invisalign

    If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, you may have thought about braces, but the idea of having your teeth covered in metal might not be appealing. For adults, a better solution to teeth straightening is Invisalign. Like braces, Invisalign shifts the teeth overtime, straightening them to improve crooked teeth or correct the bite, thereby improving the smile; however, unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t involve wires, brackets, or any other metal. Instead, your teeth are straightened with a series of clear, plastic aligners. The aligners are customized to your specific needs, can be taken out, allowing for better dental hygiene; and, because they’re clear, they’re virtually unnoticeable.

    Dental Implants

    If you are missing teeth, you might want to consider having dental implants installed. Implants are replacement roots that are permanently affixed to the jawbone. Once the implants are installed, an artificial tooth is attached to them. Because the implants are permanently affixed, the artificial tooth is much sturdier and functions more like a natural tooth. They’re also easier to clean (just brush and floss like you would your real teeth), they’re a lot more comfortable, and you don’t have to worry about shifting or food getting trapped under them; plus, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants are the ideal solution to tooth loss.
