A new year, a new beginning, a new chance to start over, and of course, new promises to make, keep and break. I bet many of you have made the promise to change absolutely everything about your life, and to start over with a healthier, more active, more successful lifestyle; more sports, less laziness, less partying, more time in the great outdoors, go on a diet, take up meditating, etc. These are important promises, as they are good for our health, but also for our appearance. This is also the case for well kept teeth. Perhaps this will be the year when you take that long belated trip to the dentist. Once you are done with the procedure, you will be glad you went; you will be healthier, pain free, and looking great. A nice smile can take 10 years off of your appearance, so here are 5 ways you can achieve this result.
Veneers can save pretty much any and all aesthetic issues that you may have developed; discoloring, unevenly shaped teeth, gaps, crowding, you name it. When speaking of veneers, we can differentiate between thin porcelain veneers, and composite resin veneers made from the same materials that regular veneers are made of. Composite veneers just take one trip ot the dentist as they can be made right there on the spot, but porcelain veneers are a little bit more expensive and take a little bit more time, they need to be made in a dental laboratory by a dental technician, after all. And with new generation veneers, there is no need to shape and scrape the teeth anymore either!
As we grow older, our teeth will become less bright and radiant. Drinking coffee, alcohol and tea, and smoking also does not help. Most people associate a white, radiant smile with youth and vigor, and this appearance can be easily obtained with a whitening session. There are many options for those who want to whiten their teeth; you can have a chairside one with or without optical beams (blue light shone into the mouth), you can have at home treatments, and you can use a variety of substances to whiten your teeth. There are natural options and very high tech ones, there is one that involves laser removal of plaque. You can see a complete guide of whitening treatment son our website.
You may find that you have a tooth that you do not want to keep, or one that is inadvisable to keep. Don’t worry, in this day and age, teeth can be replaced, with a dental implant. Dental implants produce fake teeth that are absolutely indistinguishable from real ones, and they can be obtained with relatively little work done. Any and all shapes, sized and colored teeth can be replaced, no exceptions. The dental technician can make an exact replica of your tooth, or can improve it for you as well.
You won’t believe what getting new crowns can accomplish! Take 10 years off of your smile with getting some pearly white crowns custom made for you! Often the crowns will not be the same color after a few years, and getting new ones will make you look younger and healthier. Gums can recede from crowns that have a metal internal structure, to avoid the grey line often associated with crowns, just get metal free, zirconium crowns, they cost only a little bit more and are the best solution for all of your dental prosthetic needs.
Many people are afraid to start thinking about getting braces, because they think that it will make their smile less attractive. Braces are more and more popular nowadays, and they are often associated with youth. Aside from this, you can get orthodontry that is metal free, tooth colored, transparent, or completely invisible because it is placed on the inside of your teeth. It is never too late to start orthodontic treatment, and anyone suffering from bleeding gums and periodontitis as well as anyone who is looking for a straighter, more orderly smile will also benefit from wearing orthodontry.
