When was the last time you felt confident showing off your smile? Has it been weeks, months, or even years? Do you already know why that is? There a number of dental issues, both functional and cosmetic, that can cause insecurity. Fortunately, that is why dental treatment exists, to help restore a smile, and improve a patient’s confidence as well. Whether you are in need of cosmetic treatment to hide esthetic imperfections, or modern dental restorations to repair tooth damage, why not speak to your dentist about how your smile can be updated, even improved, so you can smile confidently once again?
Are You Embarrassed by Imperfections?
If your only concerns are based on visible imperfections, there are a number of cosmetic treatment options that can help to improve the appearance of one’s smile. Whitening treatment is one of the most popular, because staining is a common complaint. Professional whitening works to help erase years’ worth of staining, leading to dramatically whiter teeth. Cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers are even more comprehensive smile enhancement options, though, which can help to improve the symmetry of the smile by correcting the size and shape of disproportionate teeth, as well as hiding minor gaps between teeth, or even permanent staining.
Could Your Smile Be Restored More Beautifully?
Of course, if your smile is in need of more substantial treatment, such as for a cavity, chip, crack, or other dental damage, then restorative action may be necessary. Fortunately, modern restorative dentistry allows for more seamless restorations than the metal restorations that were once common. Tooth-colored fillings, for instance, are a natural-looking way to treat most cavities, while porcelain crowns can create nearly seamless restorations over teeth that have become damaged due to trauma or even severe decay.
