Being self-conscious about your teeth can keep you away from the social and professional opportunities you deserve. You don’t have to accept a smile you’re not happy with. Complete dental restoration can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Your dentist’s prices can be surprisingly affordable, and many procedures are minimally invasive. Here are just a few of the concerns you can address with your cosmetic dentist.

Yellow teeth are one of the most common complaints people have about their smile. There are a number of possible causes.

Dentists have a number of ways to address yellowing teeth. A thorough cleaning will buff out surface stains and remove light plaque. For dense plaque and tartar buildup, a deep clean called periodontal scaling needs to be done.

If your teeth are stained, whitening can brighten up your teeth. Whitening can be done in-office for faster results or with take-home trays for convenience. If your enamel has been thinned by acid wear, veneers are a better choice.

General Cosmetics and Thinned Enamel

If your teeth are healthy but have cosmetic issues, veneers are a “one-stop shop” option for addressing multiple concerns at once. By covering your existing teeth with a flawless cap, veneers give you a natural-looking result without long waits or surgery.

Veneers can address:

Veneers can be applied in as few as two visits and can last over ten years. They’re an excellent investment that can be affordable on a monthly payment plan. Discuss your dentist’s prices and financing options and find out just how easy getting your dream smile can be.

Crooked Teeth and Bite Issues

Braces aren’t just for kids. If you have crooked teeth or a problem with your bite, getting braces can transform your smile and give you permanent results. There are two options for adult braces.

• Metal: These classic braces are the most affordable and can address more complex problems with the teeth and bite. Thanks to bold celebrities, they’ve become a fashion statement and an acceptable look even for adults.
• Invisalign: The preferred choice for adults, Invisalign braces are excellent for working professionals and let you eat and drink whatever you want.

When choosing an orthodontist, consider a practice that’s incorporated into a full service family dentistry. A full service dentist’s prices for braces are typically lower than stand-alone practices, and you can get other concerns addressed at the same location.

Missing Teeth

Whether they were knocked out, lost to disease or never grew in correctly, missing teeth put a hole right in your confidence. Depending on your preferences and how many teeth are missing, there are multiple restoration options to complete your smile.

• Implants: Implants are the most “complete” way to restore a missing tooth. They use a titanium post with a full tooth prosthetic on top to give you the most natural look and feel possible.
• Bridges: Also called partial dentures, bridges “bridge the gap” when multiple teeth are missing from one area. They can be noninvasive and put in place with cement or permanently anchored to your jaw with implants.
• Dentures: If you have extensive damage to your mouth or have numerous missing teeth, dentures can be the most affordable and practical choice for restoration. You can go as basic as classic dentures or go high-tech with comfortable, non-slip, implant-supported types.

If you have multiple missing teeth, your dentist can combine options for a custom restoration plan that suits your needs.

Your Consultation

No matter what your concern, the first step is to schedule a consultation. Your dentist will go over your concerns, set reasonable expectations and discuss a timeline if you want multiple treatments. You’ll also have the chance to review your dentist’s prices for different options and ask any questions you may have.
