Why You Need a Smile Makeover
Posted on 11/22/2021 by Malmquist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
We should all look in our mirrors, smile, and like what we see. Unfortunately, due to forces beyond our control, this is not always the case. Some of us are born with teeth that are not straight or have uneven jaws. Such genetic factors may limit a perfect smile.
A century ago, people did not have an option but instead accepted what fate dealt them in terms of common dental problems. Luckily, times have changed, and it is now possible to fix dental issues that seemed impossible before the advancement of the dental industry. Thanks to new dental cosmetic techniques, we can now smile with confidence. The following are the most common dental procedures that help dentists give their patients a dental makeover.
Tooth reshaping is a minor procedure done to correct spacing issues and tooth chips. During this painless procedure, our dentists use grinding tools to file irregular parts of your teeth to make them look more attractive.
Even though do-it-yourself whitening kits are readily available in drug stores, our professionals recommend consulting one of our dentists before whitening your teeth. The reason for that is because our dentists think that thorough teeth examination is crucial before any tooth whitening procedure commences.
People with cracked or broken teeth can improve their smiles by going through a crown procedure. The simple process includes grinding broken teeth into small pegs before fitting and bonding them with resin, porcelain, or metal. Fitted crowns are then filled to match the remaining teeth.
Other ways to restore a smile include fitting dental implants to patients with missing teeth, applying veneers, and teeth alignment through standard orthodontics procedures. Smile makeover techniques are purely dependent on the needs of a patient. If you need a smile makeover, get in touch with our office to schedule an appointment with one of our professionals.
