3 Common Issues Addressed Through Cosmetic Dentistry

People who start looking into cosmetic dentistry can be motivated by different concerns. For some, a procedure can potentially address naturally occurring smile flaws that have always made them feel less than confident in the way they look. Others will identify how gradual changes have hurt the way their teeth look, or seek treatment in response to an injury that negatively affects their appearance. Sunny Smiles provides several services that target esthetic problems for patients wishing to improve the way they look. You may be surprised to learn that all of your current anxieties about the look of your teeth can be addressed with just one procedure!

1. Problems With Dental Discoloration

Dental discoloration can affect many people, but it might surprise you to learn that discoloration is not always linked to teeth stains. Stains do affect many people, but so do problems with enamel erosion, as well as problems with changing tooth color after physical trauma or the consumption of certain medications. For those who are bothered by accumulated stains, we can recommend a professional whitening procedure. If you have other problems with the color of your teeth because of intrinsic discoloration, we can review other options for smile improvement.

2. Trouble With The Spacing Or Alignment Of Teeth

Spacing and alignment problems are often dealt with during a person’s tween or teen years. However, not everyone undergoes orthodontic work during these years, and some who do will have problems later in life because their teeth shift. Some issues with alignment and spacing can actually be treated without braces. With porcelain veneers, we can cover gaps or hide overlaps so that your smile appears symmetrical and free of awkward alignment problems!

3. “Minor” Dental Damage That Affects Your Smile

Even if problems with dental trauma or wear and tear do not call for restorative dental work, they can make you unhappy with the way you look. If these “minor” problems feel like a major source of embarrassment, you can make time to talk about cosmetic dentistry at our practice. Porcelain veneers are often used to restore chipped or cracked teeth, as they provide lasting support while requiring less preparatory work and changes to your smile than dental crowns. We can also target specific flaws during a bonding and contouring treatment. With this option, we can restore a tooth’s shape, size, and color with minimal preparatory work and no need for permanent restorations!
