3 Options For A More Attractive Smile

Posted on: November 10, 2018

Nowadays, everyone wants an appealing, white smile. However, this sparked interest is not from self-gratification alone. Most people are aware of the correlation between a charming smile and the chance to show off their confidence.

If you are searching for a date, seeking a job or craving a youthful look, then cosmetic dentistry has the best options to alter your appearance and change your life. Before considering cosmetic dentistry, you should consider your teeth alignment. The position and alignment of your bite affect the function and appearance of your teeth. It needs cares before anything else.

Check your teeth movement. If malocclusion is present, the dentist or orthodontist will suggest making the necessary correction before going through any other cosmetic procedure. In most situations, you will have to choose from two options – traditional metal braces, consisting of wires and brackets, and clear aligners, which come as removable trays.

Below are three cosmetic dental options that can give you a more attractive smile:

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes called bleaching, teeth whitening entails eliminating discolorations from the teeth. You can whiten the teeth with some methods. External tooth whitening can occur through bleaching the front row teeth by exposing them to a safe and familiar whitening agent.

Going through in-office teeth whitening performed by a professional produces the best results. The dental expert will make custom-built whitening trays to ensure that you receive a safe, effective treatment.

Fillings

Gone are the days when the only option you had for filling a tooth cavity were unappealing metal fillings. Nowadays, there are advanced composite resins and porcelain materials. These materials have a similar feel, function and appearance of the healthy tooth to an extent.

Additionally, composite fillings have the advantage of keeping the natural tooth intact to reduce the level of restoration needed immediately and in the future. Plastic and porcelain materials look so natural that it would be hard to differentiate them from the natural tooth.

Dental Implants

If you lose a tooth due to injury, tooth decay or periodontitis, dental implants are a great option to restore your smile. They are remarkably stronger and durable than bridges or dentures and make a lasting and attractive substitute for a lost tooth. Dentures used to be the best alternative for missing teeth, but they have many issues. Since they lie on the gum for support, they can promote bone loss, periodontal disease and sometimes, tooth decay.

Dental implants are tiny screws inserted into the jawbone to replace the tooth root and support a crown. Therefore, they are permanent and can last for more than 15 years with adequate care. Tooth restorations with dental implants look similar to the natural tooth.

Ready for a new smile?

When you book an appointment with the dentist, they will enlighten you on the best and most suitable restoration option based on the severity of the condition. When the process is complete, you will need to adopt a dental health regimen to keep your smile beautiful and attractive.
