A radiant smile does wonders in your social engagements. The confidence to broadly smile can quickly dwindle when imperfections set in, which can also come with discomforts like pain and increased sensitivity. In such instances, you should consider a Sugar Land smile makeover to rejuvenate your appearance and dental function. Among the top smile makeover treatments include dental contouring, implants, veneers, bonding, cleaning, and whitening. Here are some instances that could prompt you to seek smile makeover treatment.
Brownish or yellow teeth
Aging is the main culprit behind teeth appearing yellow or brownish. This results from enamel wear, exposing the yellow dentin. The dentin also grows with age, decreasing pulp, hence the prominence. As your enamel wears off, teeth become more translucent and look darker. Even after thorough brushing and flossing, your teeth appear dirty, affecting your smile. Besides the wear, you could also accumulate stains causing teeth discoloration. Dental cleaning eliminates the stain. The smile makeover can include whitening or bonding for a lasting bright smile.
You probably vividly remember someone you met years ago with a missing front tooth. Missing teeth, especially the front, are arguably the most notable and memorable smile imperfection. The missing tooth/teeth also affect your speech, significantly affecting your social confidence. Dental implants provide an excellent solution with an artificial tooth that resembles your natural teeth. The implants double as a cosmetic and restorative solution since your speech, chew, and bite improve, and you spot a fantastic smile.
A cracked, chipped, or broken tooth appearance is a huge smile imperfection. The damage also causes concerns like increased tooth sensitivity. Besides difficulties eating or drinking hot and cold, opening your mouth can cause unpleasant experiences, impeding your smile joys. Moreover, the damage makes your tooth vulnerable, accelerating the wear. While cosmetic reasons could be the main reason, covering the tooth does more than restore your smile. It reinforces your teeth to eliminate the pain and sensitivity and to slow further damage.
A gummy smile is when your teeth appear smaller. This means the gum is the prominent feature of your smile. A gummy smile is due to excess gum tissue covering too much of your teeth. This mainly develops from an early age during permanent teeth eruption. Despite your teeth growing further, the gum remains your smile’s dominant feature. Gum contouring deals with the excess tissue and revitalizes your smile.
Spaces between your teeth are not just unsightly. They affect oral hygiene since debris can easily accumulate in the gaps. The gaps could be due to dental injuries, childhood habits, periodontitis, and other oral issues that result in lost or loose teeth. The gaps could also be genetic, where the teeth are smaller for your jawbone, causing them to be spread further apart. A smile makeover can fill the gaps, allowing you to spot a better smile and improve oral hygiene and health.
A smile makeover doesn’t just improve your appearance and confidence. The treatments can significantly supercharge your oral and overall wellness. Contact Advanced Dentistry today for more on smile makeovers.
