If you find yourself unhappy with the condition of your teeth, they can be restored with new smile treatments. There have been many dental innovations over the past few decades, and a single visit to the dentist is often all it takes to improve the appearance of a person's teeth drastically.

Here are a few simple treatments that can be performed by oral professionals to restore the condition of a patient's teeth:

1. New Smile Teeth Whitening

There are many teeth whitening products at local supermarkets, but nothing compares to the solutions dentists have access to be able to use on their patients. These bleaching agents are significantly stronger than anything that is purchased over-the-counter, and they will not damage teeth enamel like the low-quality products found at grocery stores will.

Dentists also use customized mouth guards to administer these solutions, and that reduces the odds of any of it seeping into the patient's gums and irritating them.

With a professional teeth whitening session, patients often end up with teeth that are eight shades whiter than they previously were after a single meeting.

2. Veneers

Veneers are typically reserved for patients with significantly discolored teeth that cannot be whitened with solutions or teeth that are severely disfigured. Each veneer is a thin shell that acts like a protective cover for the front of a person's teeth. The veneers cover up any imperfections on the teeth, instantly giving the patient a perfect set of chompers.

During the installation of veneers, dentists typically remove a tiny portion of tooth enamel to make room for the prosthetic. This is done to prevent the person's teeth from appearing too bulky.

Veneers are a permanent solution, and they can last up to 15 years with proper oral hygiene.

3. Crowns

Also known as dental caps, a crown is used to restore the look and function of a badly-damaged tooth. This deterioration can be the result of tooth decay or trauma to the tooth. Regardless of the reason for the damage, the crown will restore the look of the tooth and allow the patient to regain its function.

4. Implants

Implants are the most effective way to replace a missing tooth. This is due to the fact implants mimic the look and functionality of natural teeth and their roots. When a tooth is missing, jawbone tissue deterioration occurs since the jawbone is no longer being adequately stimulated.  An implant helps to prevent this.

During the treatment, the dentist will surgically install a screw to the patient's jawbone. The screw is typically made from titanium, but other materials like zirconium are also used. Once the screw has firmly fused with the jawbone, a crown is attached to the external-facing end.

5. Dental Bonding

Composite resins can also be used to improve the appearance of a tooth. It is an inexpensive but effective treatment. Once the tooth is prepared for the bond, the dentist applies it directly. It is then shaped into the desired shape and hardened with ultraviolet light.
