When people are embarrassed about their smile, they tend to hide it more – covering their teeth with their hands when they talk or smiling with their mouth closed for pictures.
A beautiful smile can encourage you to share it more, making you seem more warm and friendly.
If you’re embarrassed about your smile, you have a lot of cosmetic dentistry options! Learn if you’re a candidate for cosmetic dentistry below:
- You practice good dental hygiene – Teeth and gum issues should be dealt with first to avoid these problems interfering with cosmetic procedures.
- You don’t grind your teeth – Teeth grinding can damage veneers, leading to chips and fractures. If you do grind, we may be able to help correct this or propose different treatment options.
- Similarly, you don’t chew your nails, chew ice, or use your teeth as tools. If you do, you may not be a candidate for veneers specifically, since these habits are can cause veneers to break.
- You understand that restorative work may be necessary in order to perform certain cosmetic procedures, including filling cavities or removing decayed teeth.
- You know that most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic treatments. We offer payment plans and financing to help with this! We might also be able to spread your treatment out over time so you don’t have to pay all at once.
- You have sufficient tooth enamel – This is necessary if you want to get veneers because veneers adhere to your enamel. If you do not have enough enamel, the veneer will not have a sufficiently strong bonding surface.
Commonly Treated Cosmetic Problems
Having any of the issues below? We can help! These problems are all easily treated:
- Crooked teeth – Crookedness can lead to hygiene problems, decay, and periodontal disease. Orthodontics can be used to discreetly straighten teeth, while porcelain veneers can be used to mask mild crookedness.
- Misshapen teeth – Porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and dental crowns can all correct the shape of your teeth.
- Teeth gaps – A gap between teeth can be closed with orthodontics. Porcelain veneers and dental bonding may also be able to fix this.
- Chips and cracks – Even if a chip does not significantly weaken a tooth, it can still impact a smile. You can cover cracks with porcelain veneers or dental crowns, as well as fill them with dental bonding.
- Stains – Discoloration can be fixed a number of ways. Surface stains may be reduced or removed through teeth whitening, whereas deeper stains may need to be hidden by a veneer or dental bonding procedure.
