But some people are not so fortunate to show their lovely smiles. It could be because of teeth damage, unsightly gums or misalignment in their mouth. Whatever problem you have that is forbidding you from having a great smile can now be fixed. Welcome to the miracle of cosmetic dentistry!
Let’s check some procedures in cosmetic surgery that can give you that perfect smile:
Porcelain veneers have been around since 1928 and they were used by dentist Charles Pincus to modify the appearance of teeth in a film production. Porcelain veneers are thin colored shelled ceramics. They are used to cover the front side of the teeth. It can be designed to make sure of an exact fit on the tooth once it is cemented. This ceramic looks natural and can even be tinted to match the patient’s natural teeth color. This procedure is preferred by those who want to enhance the looks of their teeth and also make it stronger. This ceramic can fix the gaps, breaks, cracks in between the teeth.
Brushing alone sometimes doesn’t give you the white teeth that you are looking for. Toothpaste may not be strong enough to remove the stains on your teeth that you got from coffee, tea, cola or smoking cigarettes.
One common teeth whitening method is applying a whitening gel to your teeth and the dentist will then use a special light to fire up the chemical and hasten the whitening process. Also there is an option now for bleaching your teeth at home. Dentists will create a customized mouth guard for you with whitening chemical in it. All you have to do is to wear the mouth guard and it will whiten your teeth. It can even whiten areas that usual whitening products will miss.
If you don’t want to use traditional braces, then there is a modern alternative for you – and that is invisalign. Wearing metal braces for aligning the teeth can be embarrassing for some people and that’s why more people are trying out Invisalign which is easier to wear and maintain. Invisalign is a series of teeth aligners that looks almost invisible and it doesn’t affect the look of your smile. It is scientifically designed to push your teeth into the correct position. Compared to traditional metal braces wherein you have to do frequent visits to the dentist, Invisalign requires little maintenance and dental checkups.
Even if you are very busy, you can have the option to change the adjustment of your teeth yourself. Dentists will give you a series of aligners and you can easily remove them yourself if you need to eat, brush or floss.
Getting the perfect smile should be easy now with these technologies. Ask your dentist about their professional services and see for yourself what a perfect smile can do for you!
