My family's dental health is important to me. Unfortunately for me, it is not as important to my little ones. Getting my kids to brush and floss on a daily basis is almost like taking on an obstacle course. I talked to my family's dentist about different methods I could try to encourage them to brush and floss on a regular basis. Some of the tricks worked, some did not. After some experimentation and talking to other parents, I was able to come up with a lot of great tips for helping kids care for their teeth. I started this blog to help other parents get creative when it comes to their kids and dental care.
Cosmetic dentists go beyond the functionality of your teeth, giving you a smile that you can be proud of. With new technology, the ability to replace missing teeth and reshape teeth continues to improve. Whether you have discolored teeth that you want to whiten or you are tired of teeth that are too short for your mouth, it's time to see how a cosmetic dentist can provide you with the changes you want.
When Teeth Are Missing
Missing teeth can make you feel uncomfortable when you smile. If you are looking for natural-appearing tooth restoration, it's time to see what your options are. Dental implants, crowns or dental bridges can be used to replace missing teeth and give you a natural-looking smile.
If Teeth Are Poorly Shaped
You can't help how your teeth are shaped, but you might be embarrassed by it anyway. If you have one or several teeth that are oddly shaped and don't seem to fit into the rest of your smile, a cosmetic dentist can change this for you. With bonding strategies and porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dentist can make your poorly shaped teeth fit in with the rest of your smile. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are made to attach to your existing tooth and are a permanent way to change the shape of a tooth.
When Teeth Are Cracked or Chipped
Cracked, chipped or badly discolored teeth are damaged and can be repaired by your cosmetic dentist. Your dentist may use crowns or veneers to give you a tooth that feels and looks natural. If you have a chipped tooth, bonding will repair the tooth and make it look new again.
Shortened Teeth and Your Smile
You may have some teeth in your mouth that are just too short for your smile. If this is the case, talk to your cosmetic dentist about lengthening the short teeth you have. Even the tiniest amount of lengthening can have a big impact on your overall look. Talk with your cosmetic dentist about the changes you want to see what your options are.
A cosmetic dentist can change your life. If you have a smile that makes you hide your teeth from others, it's time to see how a cosmetic dentist can help you. With so many ways to restore your teeth so that they look and feel natural, there is no reason to have a smile you are not proud of.
