When most people hear the term cosmetic dentistry, they may think it’s all about teeth whitening. Although teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic procedure, there are so many other aspects of cosmetic dentistry that are offered to help a patient truly attain that picture perfect smile of their dreams. Here are some common complaints that patients have about their teeth and how we work hard to fix them and help them reach their goals:
Having a straight smile is so important to many patients. Whether their family couldn’t afford braces as children or their teeth became more crooked as they aged, many adults are leery that the only solution for them is adult metal braces. However, thanks to advances in dental technology, clear removable tray aligners like Invisalign are used to help get teeth straight with maximum comfort and a very subtle appearance.
Sometimes there’s no avoiding having a tooth pulled. Traumatic accidents, decay, and genetics often play a role in missing teeth. In fact, some people are even born missing a tooth in certain areas, this is called Hypodontia. It’s actually more common than people think with about 20% of adults missing at least one tooth simply because it never came in. Whatever the cause, replacing a missing tooth can be a simple process, and there are many treatment options. Implants are the best permanent solution as they provide not only a replacement for the missing tooth, but also for the root to keep the bone stimulated and prevent facial changes that can occur as a result of jaw bone loss.
Even with a perfect set of teeth, some patients find they are still unhappy with their smile due to the wrinkles and fine lines that are a natural part of the aging process. Botox and Juvederm can be used to smooth out and fill these wrinkles so that your perfect smile doesn’t end with just your teeth.
