Aesthetic Options for Your Teeth
When it comes to human interaction the attractiveness of our teeth – our smile – is a crucial part of the first impression. White healthy teeth means a healthy person who takes good care of him or herself and cracked, crooked, or missing teeth can be perceived as the opposite! This, of course, isn’t always true – a person with missing teeth could simply have been the victim of a bad accident or other misfortune but that won’t always come across to the person they are speaking to. Thankfully, there are methods offered that can help you obtain or restore a gorgeous gleam for your smile.
For fixing crooked teeth in either children or adults braces remain a terrific option. Braces are long-term dental work that are affixed to the teeth in multiple ways. Over time the pressure applied by braces will coax the teeth into better alignment giving a gorgeous symmetrical look.
For people with small chips, cracks, or stained teeth veneers are a great option. Thin porcelain shells that are custom-fitted and attached to the front of your teeth they can immediately whiten and brighten your smile and give it a long-lasting and healthy look. If you just want to brighten your smile veneers are the way to go.
If you have more serious issues with major cracks, extremely large fillings, or root canals then crowns are right for you. Crowns, also called dental caps, are tooth shaped caps that cover the teeth all the way to the gum line. Unlike veneers crowns also have the ability to strengthen the teeth but in order to be fitted properly a portion of the tooth needs to be removed. They’re always the correct choice for teeth with structural issues.
If you lose your teeth and want to fill that gap the only way that used to be available was through dentures. Dentures still remain a viable choice for those with multiple teeth needing to be replaced but for those with only one or two missing who want a more permanent solution dental implants are now available. These implants will look and work like your natural teeth and with advances in dental technology are easier than ever to place.
