The problem is, sometimes feeling subconscious about our smiles leads us not to smile at all. Perhaps your teeth are stained, misaligned, or just not in great condition. Whatever the reason, if you don’t want other people to see them, that can affect your life in a myriad of ways.
Fortunately, we have the best cosmetic dentist in Falmouth on hand to help you out. Let us help you find a reason to smile!
Orthodontists are specialists in the treatment of misaligned teeth and jaws, but they also do a fair amount of cosmetic dentistry too. This includes things such as stain removal, chip repair, veneers, and implants.
A number of different things can lead to the need for these types of services—and most of them don’t come down to poor dental hygiene. For example, teeth staining can be a result of the consumption of numerous everyday foods including coffee, red wine, and more. Our teeth also naturally wear down and weaken with age amplifying yellowing. The combined effect is a smile that may no longer look it’s best.
If you actually have missing teeth or teeth that aren’t suitable for veneers, implants might be the way to go.
Implants are realistic false teeth implanted directly into your jaw for a permanent, no-fuss solution. As they prevent your remaining teeth from shifting, dental implants can also help prevent further dental injuries, jaw misalignment, and weakening.
Braces are often not the most popular option for patients, but there’s no denying that they are highly effective at correcting teeth misalignment. On the upside, dental technology has come a long way from the ‘metal-mouth’ solutions of the past. We’re confident we can find a suitable solution for you.
Enamel shaping is a procedure that entails contouring the enamel of your teeth themselves to improve their appearance. Our dentist may also use bonding during this procedure when the tooth needs to be built up or lengthened. Your teeth need to be in fairly good shape for this procedure to work.
Crowns can help to reshape a tooth that has been broken serving both a practical function by protecting the dentine within a broken tooth, and a cosmetic one by correcting a misshapen tooth. They cover the tooth entirely and will look indistinguishable from your normal tooth. A properly done crown can last for many years, and you take care of them in the same way you would for any other tooth.
There is only so much that standard bleaching and bonding can accomplish. If your teeth are very stained, or multiple teeth are chipped or broken, veneers offer a more complete solution. Veneers are bonded to the surface of your teeth and look as though they are real.
They are more expensive than bonding but offer superior and longer-lasting results. The end result is a brighter smile that looks perfectly natural, and because they’re bonded to the natural enamel, taking care of that new smile is a breeze.
If you’re concerned about the way your smile looks, come in to see us. We’ll assess the condition of your smile and help formulate a path to better dental health whether that may take us to whitening, bonding, implants, or other methods along the way.
