Your smile is one of the most noticeable things about you. But what if you don’t feel confident when you smile? Luckily, there are several ways to improve your teeth for a healthy mouth and smile.
One of the best ways to improve your smile is to practice good oral hygiene and visit a dentist regularly. Good oral hygiene practices include:
Getting a whiter, brighter smile can boost your confidence quickly. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are a good option. However, it may be difficult to get a dramatically brighter shade when using these products.
Professional teeth whitening is the best option to quickly and safely get a drastically brighter smile. Additionally, the results of a professional whitening last much longer than do-it-yourself whitening products.
Chipped or broken teeth can detract from a perfect smile. Dental bonding repairs the chipped or broken tooth using a tooth-colored composite. Restoring a damaged tooth protects it from decay, supports your overall health, and improves your smile.
Patients with minor dental imperfections benefit greatly from porcelain veneers. After removing a small amount of tooth enamel, a dentist will attach a thin piece of ceramic to the front surface of the tooth using a strong adhesive. Veneers are color-matched to look like natural teeth, making them almost indistinguishable from surrounding teeth.
Not only do veneers look great, but they also protect your tooth from infection. Furthermore, with proper care, porcelain veneers can last for decades.
Dental crowns are oral prosthetic devices that are used to cover damaged teeth. Much like veneers, dental crowns are both a cosmetic and a protective implement that can last for decades with proper care.
Fixed bridges are recommended for patients with one or more missing teeth. Not only do bridges improve your smile, but they also prevent further tooth loss by bolstering the surrounding teeth.
Dentures restore the function that is lost from missing teeth. Patients with dentures can speak, chew, and smile with ease and confidence.
Missing teeth can cause patients to feel extremely self-conscious about their smiles. Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. The procedure involves surgically implanting a titanium screw into the jaw bone. After the implant is healed, a dentist will place a restorative, tooth-colored crown on the implant.
Dental implants restore function and improve the appearance of the teeth. They also prevent bone deterioration and distortion of the facial muscles.
Traditional braces or clear aligners are great ways to fix crooked or crowded teeth. They can also help with TMJ disorder symptoms and fix a misaligned bite.
