A smile is one of the most important tools that help you pave the way to lasting relationships. However, oral concerns like cavities, discoloration, infections, and damage to the teeth can sometimes make you hide your smile.
Fortunately, smile restoration procedures can offer significant improvements in such cases. On top of improving your appearance, they can also help you shed your inhibitions and make you more confident.
In this blog, we will be getting into the 4 most popular options to consider for smile restoration.
People with a “gummy smile” are often embarrassed that their teeth appear too short or their gum line is too obvious. This problem can be fixed by removing or contouring the excess gum tissue or the bone tissue, if necessary, to expose more of the teeth.
This procedure can be done to a single tooth or multiple teeth to even out the gum line and give you a fuller smile.
According to the American Institute of Prosthodontics, an estimated 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and approximately 40 million of them are missing all their teeth.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots made of titanium that can form a solid foundation for the installation of one or more permanent or temporary teeth or the placement of dentures.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged or weak tooth to improve its size, shape, strength, or appearance. Most crowns are known to last anywhere between 5 years to 15 years and can be made of a variety of materials such as porcelain, metal, ceramic, or resin.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are used for covering the front surface of your teeth. When bonded to the teeth, they can change the tooth’s color, shape, size, and length.
Veneers are a well-known alternative to crowns, the only difference being that the process cannot be reversed once completed.
A smile restoration procedure can offer aesthetic improvements to your existing smile and fill you with renewed confidence to take on the world.
