Cosmetic Dentistry: 8 Best Ways To Get A Hollywood Smile
Chipped, crooked, worn down, discolored teeth can be transformed through various dental procedures that we offer at the Sacramento River Dental Group office in Sacramento, CA. You’ll no longer feel self-conscious about your smile but will instead look for any excuse to show off your brand-new smile!
Here are some of the dental treatments we offer that can transform the look of your smile:
1. Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells adhered over natural teeth for minor masking imperfections.
Veneers are custom-made and tooth-colored to ensure a perfect, undetectable fit. Worn enamel, unevenly shaped teeth, cracks, chips, and gaps can be easily concealed. Veneers also help cover up discolored teeth and ensure that you achieve a perfectly aligned smile.
Veneers might be a popular cosmetic procedure but can also strengthen weakened teeth. Still, they are incredibly durable and, as a result, can prevent the need for additional treatment. They usually last anywhere from 15 to 20 years.
2. Caps and Crowns
Caps and crowns are primarily used to reinforce existing teeth that have been damaged. A tooth that’s decayed, fractured, or broken is no longer strong enough on its own, which is why a cap or crown is needed. Porcelain crowns, in particular, are durable and can effectively restore the function of your mouth.
Dental crowns also offer aesthetic benefits. They can be used to hide a deformed or discolored tooth or even to correct a crooked smile. Porcelain crowns also offer a natural appearance to seamlessly blend in with the rest of the teeth.
3. Clear Aligners
Misaligned and crooked teeth can take a toll on your smile and confidence. Thankfully, there are several highly effective methods of straightening teeth. Invisalign® clear aligners are a popular device for straightening teeth since they are highly discreet.
Invisalign® aligners are made from clear plastic and are virtually undetectable. Nobody will know that you are in the process of correcting the misaligned teeth unless you tell them. Aligners will shift your teeth slowly into place using a series of custom teeth. You will be given a new aligner every two weeks or so that gradually straightens teeth.
4. Dental Bridges
You should consider a dental bridge if you have lost a tooth. Dental bridges bind the replacement tooth between 2 neighboring, existing teeth. It can be used for either one or several missing teeth as long as healthy teeth can be found on either side of the gap. Dental bridges are usually custom-designed to fit your mouth perfectly.
Dental bridges provide structural benefits and restore a full and healthy smile without missing teeth. A dental bridge can ensure that your facial features don’t change or sag due to the absence of teeth. It can also ensure that the remaining teeth don’t shift because of the gap in your mouth.
5. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a noninvasive procedure that’s usually completed in just one visit to the dentist. It quickly corrects fractures, chips, uneven teeth, and other minor damage. Your smile will be significantly more symmetrical and straighter after a short appointment.
A small amount of tooth-colored composite resin is added to the problem tooth during the procedure. It’s then contoured and sculpted to fit the tooth perfectly. The color is also adjusted to blend in with the rest of your smile.
6. Dental Implants
Implants are a modern alternative to bridges and dentures. In the unfortunate event that you lose a tooth, you should do something to prevent additional complications that may come about as a result. In this case, most dentists will recommend dental implants that will restore the appearance and function of the mouth.
Depending on the number of missing teeth, several different kinds of implants are available. For example, you may need just one crown to replace one missing tooth. Alternatively, a partial prosthesis replaces two or more teeth. An “All on 4” replaces a full set of upper and/or lower teeth.
Dental implants also provide the perfect combination of aesthetics and functionality. They blend with the remaining teeth to create a dazzling smile.
7. Tooth Recontouring
If you want to adjust the length of your teeth to create a level, symmetrical smile, tooth recontouring can be an excellent option. During the procedure, the teeth are reshaped lightly to become more level. Uneven edges are corrected, and corners that seem too square are rounded. Your smile will appear remarkably straighter once the sharp edges of your crooked teeth are smoothened.
8. Teeth Whitening
Correcting your damaged or crooked teeth is just half the battle. If you truly desire a Hollywood smile, you will need to address discoloration. Professional whitening treatments can achieve a bright, white, and sparkling smile.
Tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco products can stain teeth, which can have a devastating impact on the quality of your smile. Getting rid of these yellow stains can transform your smile instantly and boost your confidence.
You should, however, be cautious of over-the-counter whitening products. They are particularly bad for the natural enamel that coats and protects your teeth. Many also include hydrogen peroxide that pierces through enamel leading to tooth sensitivity.
