SIGNS YOU MAY NEED COSMETIC DENTISTRY
A good first impression is everything these days. A smile is one of the first things a person sees when they meet someone. A good smile can act as your introduction. Have confidence in your smile! A bright, white smile can really boost a person’s self-esteem. If you are not 100-percent confident in your smile you might want to consider cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentists focus on improving the gums, teeth, and bite. Not only are they focused on the appearance of your smile, but also the overall health and functionality of your teeth. Here is a list of the most common signs that you might need to consider cosmetic dentistry.
Missing teeth – No one wants a crooked smile. Implants, crowns, dentures or bridges might be used, depending on the circumstance.
Discolored or stained teeth – Store-bought teeth whiteners not getting the job done? A professional cleaning will have you looking years younger.
Chipped or cracked teeth – When a tooth is chipped, it becomes exposed to bacteria that could lead to infection. If your tooth is damaged in any way, it needs dental attention.
Embarrassed to smile– If your teeth are discolored or misshapen, you may feel embarrassed or ashamed and feel like they are worth hiding. This could lead to social isolation and anxiety or depression. A cosmetic dentist will give you a smile you are confident about.
The shape of your face has changed– A missing or chipped tooth can lead to your jaw changing shape. If you notice any changes, it is important to act soon as they will only get worse with age.
Digestion issues – A missing tooth can cause food to be improperly chewed and poorly digested. This can lead to issues like acid reflux, heartburn, and ulcers. Cosmetic dentists combat this issue with tooth aligners, implants and more.
