When you first look in the mirror in the morning while brushing those gleaming babies, you remember; “Oh yeah, I fixed my teeth and they look extraordinary!”
When you smile at old friends or make new ones, you are happy to show off your new celebrity-caliber grin. When you are in a professional setting speaking with colleagues or clients, you feel poised and self-confident.
We have talked about different cosmetic and restorative dental procedures available in previous blog articles, but let’s review the most common.
Veneers are glass-like, wafer-thin covers that adhere to teeth. Porcelain veneers are strong and have the translucency of natural teeth. They correct chips, stains and misaligned teeth that do not require orthodontia. There are several companies that fabricate veneers. One of the high-profile brand names is Lumineers.
Crowns correct more extensive tooth problems. They are used in a variety of situations such as the final restoration following a root canal or to restore teeth damaged by decay, injury, or periodontal disease.
A dental implant is often the best replacement for a missing tooth. They are becoming a popular alternative to a dental bridge or partial dentures, especially among middle-aged professionals and people in the public eye.
Bridges are another strong, natural-looking replacement for one or more missing teeth. They have been used with success for many years.
Professional tooth whitening in your dentist’s office is the least invasive and fastest way to brighten your smile several shades. One of the most popular systems is called Zoom!.
