If you’ve felt embarrassed by your smile, a makeover just before the holidays could be the perfect way to regain some confidence. Often some of the most common New Year’s resolutions are to be surer of one’s self. So why not start now? We guarantee the lines will be longer in January.
Discolored teeth is often the first place many wish to start, and are there are several procedures available. Yellow or stained teeth is caused by two different types of stains known as intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic are the most common, and are essentially staining agents that have become trapped in the natural ridges of your enamel. These stains can be treated by professional whitening, which uses various chemicals to dissolve these staining agents, but if the discoloration stems from intrinsic stains--stains inside the teeth--porcelain veneers are a better option.
If missing teeth have been on your mind, a procedure like dental implants work best. Dental implants are two essential components, the titanium implant, and the crown. After the titanium implant has been inserted into the jaw, your muscle tissue and bone will begin bonding with the titanium in a process known as osseointegration. This will create an incredibly strong connection that mimics that of a natural tooth root, and requires no special cleaning beyond your regular oral hygiene.
If you’re finally ready to take the next step in being able to show off your fancy new smile during the holidays, then scheduling a consultation with a cosmetic dentist would be a great first step. During that appointment, you and your dentist can work through your specific smile pain-points, and come up with an action plan to give you the smile of your dreams.
