Enhanced Chewing and Biting
If you have ever had a toothache, you know how much it changes how you chew your food. You are not helping yourself by altering your chewing pattern. Instead, by preferring one side of your mouth, you are causing more significant stress and strain on those teeth.
Treatments such as placing esthetic veneers strengthen your existing teeth, allowing you to chew or bite food more efficiently. What is even better, veneers are a quick and long-term solution. In just a few visits, you could have an entirely new smile with a lower chance of dental decay.
A crooked smile could be corrected with braces. However, braces could be an issue since many people are intimidated by the appearance of gleaming metal brackets. Besides, visiting the orthodontist to adjust your braces is also an unpleasant, if not a painful, experience.
Luckily, cumbersome metal brackets are no longer your sole alternative for teeth straightening. Emerson Dental Arts provides Invisalign transparent braces, which are not detectable compared to conventional braces and do not require uncomfortable tightening procedures.
Healthier Gums and Teeth
Whenever some people hear the word ‘cosmetic dentistry,’ they conjure up images of procedures that are not essential but enhance the appearance of a person’s smile. Nevertheless, this is not the reality.
Cosmetic treatments could solve various concerns, ranging from jaw alignment concerns to the inability to enunciate clearly. Cosmetic procedures such as bonding can help preserve healthy teeth, whereas gum contouring could fix an irregular gum line.
Every sip of red wine, coffee, tea, or any other staining drink discolors your teeth; thus, causing them to become less white with time. To whiten your teeth again, you can go to the store and buy an over-the-counter bleaching product. Nevertheless, expert whitening sessions are far more powerful than over-the-counter bleaching products.
Above all, there are situations when a tooth is so discolored that even whitening will not help much. In these circumstances, a veneer, which includes placing a thin porcelain coating above your tooth to give it a completely white and clean look, is more efficient. It is like going back in time and getting a completely new tooth!
Whether you have cracked teeth, crowded teeth, discolored teeth, or missing teeth altogether, there are numerous cosmetic dentistry options available. These procedures can help restore the vibrancy of your smile; thus, enhancing your self-esteem.
