Do imperfections in your smile cause you to hide it at all costs? You are not alone! In fact, 48% of U.S. adults have untagged themselves from a picture on Facebook because they were unhappy with their teeth. Plus, a whopping 33% of Americans don’t like their smile and an additional 22% believe a better smile would improve their love life. If these statistics sound all too familiar, you’ll be happy to know a cosmetic dentist in South Burlington can help! Read on for the four most common cosmetic flaws and their treatments.
#1. Stained or Discolored Teeth
From a morning cup of coffee to an evening glass of wine, some of the finer things in life can cause your once pearly whites to look less than impressive. So, it’s not surprising that stubborn stains and unsightly discoloration are the two leading problems in the cosmetic dental industry. Fortunately, teeth whitening treatments and porcelain veneers are two effective solutions that can brighten your smile significantly!
#2. Cracked or Broken Teeth
Even if a cracked or chipped tooth doesn’t necessitate immediate treatment, it can hinder your smile and take a toll on your self-esteem the longer you wait to correct it. Fortunately, you can restore the function and look of your teeth with a number of treatments that are designed fix everything from a minor imperfection to a broken tooth that requires a replacement. For example, cosmetic bonding can effectively treat a small break, a tooth-colored dental crown can be used to secure a damaged tooth, and life-like dental implants can replace one or more extracted teeth.
#3. Irregularly Shaped or Uneven Teeth
Has chronic teeth grinding caused your teeth to look uneven? The constant wear and tear can lead to irregularly shaped teeth that change the entire look of your smile. Even genetics and TMJ disorder can lead to similar results. Luckily, that’s where cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers come in. Both cosmetic solutions are completely customized to your unique smile needs, although veneers are typically used for more severe cases.
#4. Crooked Teeth
A beautiful, straight smile is associated with positive attributes like confidence and success. So, it’s not surprising why so many people want to correct their crooked or misaligned teeth. Decades prior, metal brackets and pesky wires were the only effective solutions available. However, patients today can use Invisalign’s clear aligners to perfect their smile discreetly. If your teeth are slightly misaligned, then porcelain veneers are another teeth-straightening alternative.
Imperfections in your smile can hinder more than your physical appearance, they can negatively impact your mental and emotional state as well. Fortunately, a cosmetic dentist can help address your dental concerns and deliver a smile that restores your confidence!
