Not all people are satisfied with their smiles, and some are embarrassed by them. 

If you feel your teeth are impacting your social or professional life, you should realize that there are some very viable options available to you.

Cosmetic dental procedures 

Whitening

Teeth can stain easily from foods (blueberries), beverages (coffee), and tobacco. 

Over-the-counter products are not particularly effective. If you are concerned about your appearance, schedule an appointment to have your teeth professionally whitened. Not all teeth deal well with the whitening agents, so it is important that a dentist evaluates you before starting this process. When approved, you will immediately notice the difference in the colour of your teeth.

Veneers

Veneers are small shells that the dentist will adhere to your teeth. These are customized for your mouth and teeth and will not move after they are cemented in place. You treat them like natural teeth for cleaning.

Veneers are great when whitening is not as effective as you would like. They can also correct structural issues like gaps and can repair cracks. It also answers the question about how celebrities seem to have near-perfect teeth.

Caps

Veneers only work with front teeth. If you have issues with other teeth in your mouth, the dentist will recommend caps or crowns. These are similar to veneers, except the cap will surround the entire tooth to cover large spaces, decaying teeth, and irregular shapes.

To work, the dentist will file down the natural tooth before they attach the porcelain or acrylic caps, which are also glued in, so you won’t need to worry about movement.

Shaping

Sometimes a crooked or irregular-looking tooth can spoil your entire smile. Also called enamel shaping, this is a process where the dentist files some of the enamel to create a more appropriate and uniform shape. The dentist assures that this is a painless procedure, and you get to see the results immediately.

Invisalign

Not only do children and teenagers benefit from braces, but adults also may need their teeth straightened. In that case, many opt for the Invisalign product. Instead of metal wires and brackets, these are almost unnoticeable. They are also designed so that you don’t need to visit the dentist’s office to have the metal tightened and adjusted. They also generally correct the bite problem in less time than traditional braces.
