Everyone has an imperfection. Nevertheless, is there that one dental feature that makes you feel more imperfect or less beautiful? That one dental problem that you want corrected? You are lucky because technological breakthroughs have been made and most, if not all the glitches can be fixed. Dental surgeons have come up with the following cosmetic and restorative procedures to help you:
- Gum contouring
Is your gum uneven or your smile gummy? Gum contouring is for you. This is an aesthetic dental treatment that will reshape your gum line giving you the opportunity to give off the biggest and the most beautiful smile.
A beautiful smile is not only bright and sparkly but is also an accessory for your face and your appearance. Through orthodontics, your crooked teeth will be straightened, cracked teeth fixed and misaligned teeth aligned. Orthodontics involves use of lingual braces, aligners, or the traditional braces. All these ensure that you have straightened teeth and reduce the chance of tooth decay, cracking teeth, or premature wear and tear.
- Porcelain veneers
Do you have chipped teeth or overlay gaps? The porcelain veneers are there for you. The ceramic shells applied to the front of the teeth are effective in concealing gaps and cracks resulting in a whiter appearance for teeth that make your smile bigger and brighter.
Technological advancements have made it possible for creation of stronger, beautiful, and porcelain veneers that resemble normal teeth.
- Dental crowns
Are your teeth damaged or decayed? Aesthetic and functional damage to teeth is resolved using dental crowns. The dental crown is made of a porcelain cap on metal that is placed on the damaged tooth. The porcelain cap looks like natural teeth blending and restoring your natural smile while the metal is there so as to withstand the pressure you exert when biting. Alternatively, you may get all-porcelain dental crowns.
- Teeth whitening
Are you struggling with your esteem because of discolored teeth? Is your confidence level low because of the browning of your teeth? If yes, then you are not alone and the struggles of many in the same predicament have led to the innovation of procedures to whiten and beautify your teeth, making you feel more beautiful and confident.
It is important to have whitening done by a licensed professional who will make it a point of inspecting your teeth to ensure that they are properly sealed before whitening. This step is crucial in preventing more damage to your teeth. Customized trays fitting your teeth perfectly will be used to prevent damaging leakages.
- Dental implants
Missing a tooth or more? Go to a dental clinic. The dentists will recommend a dental implant to replace the missing tooth. An implant is made of an artificial root that is embedded to the jaw. A prosthetic tooth forms the crown.
- Dental fillings
- Onlays or inlays
- Dental bridges
- Dental bonding
In conclusion, the procedures highlighted above are effective in fixing dental issues and enhancing your appearance through corrective cosmetic procedures. Even with these procedures, you will not look more beautiful if you don’t smile. So, always smile. This is the number one beauty accessory.
