How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Boost Your Self-Confidence

January 8, 2024
How Cosmetic Dentistry

If you have problems with your teeth, you may feel anxious or ashamed. Chipped, broken, discolored, or missing teeth may affect your confidence. You may not want to show your teeth when you smile.

Fortunately, cosmetic dentists can transform a troubled smile using simple, affordable techniques. This blog will describe how cosmetic dentistry can boost your self-confidence and improve how you look and feel.

Correct Discolored Teeth

Teeth naturally become yellow as part of the aging process. Many people also enjoy foods and beverages like coffee and tea that can leave stains behind. Teeth whitening can safely remove years of stains and restore your smile's youthful appearance.

In-office whitening provides gorgeous results in just one visit. After protecting your gums, the provider applies a bleaching gel and uses a special light to activate it.

You can also opt for at-home whitening trays to touch up your smile. At-home whitening is more gradual but equally effective.

Repair Damaged Teeth

Cosmetic dentists have multiple methods for repairing damaged teeth. Crowns protect broken, decayed, or discolored natural teeth, preserving their root system and saving them from extraction.

Composite bonding can repair small chips and cracks. Composite fillings repair decay without the appearance of metal.

Straighten Crooked Teeth

Invisalign is one of the best ways to straighten gapped or misaligned teeth. Discreet, comfortable, and flexible, Invisalign helps people with crooked teeth feel better about their smiles without intrusive brackets and wires that may attract unwanted attention.

Porcelain or composite veneers can also make teeth appear straighter and cover gaps. Veneers are a fast, affordable alternative to other procedures.

Replace Missing Teeth

Dental implants and bridges can complete your healthy smile. Both options provide an excellent appearance. Implants replace one tooth or multiple teeth, up to a full arch at a time. They are special because the implant post bonds with the jawbone, creating a permanent installation and a natural look and feel.

Bridges can replace a single tooth or a handful of teeth at a time. They are a more affordable alternative to implants in certain situations.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Are porcelain veneers permanent?

The doctor cements porcelain veneers to your teeth. They need replacement every ten to 15 years. Since the dentist needs to remove a thin layer of enamel to place the veneers, you will need to have another set placed periodically for the life of your teeth.

Can Invisalign correct gapped teeth?

Invisalign is an excellent option for correcting gaps between teeth. Invisalign generally takes about 12 to 18 months to work, but you may see faster results.
