3 Ways in Which a Competent Cosmetic Dentist Can Help Improve Your Smile

Duane Kelly

Everyone winces at the mention of the name dentist. Perhaps this is because a lot of people have come to associate visits to the dentist with pain. A lot of people also only visit the dentist when their teeth are decayed or aching and they have no other option than to have them extracted or treated in some other way. This means that many people neglect the health of their teeth till they have stained, chipped, and misaligned teeth to deal with.

If you have reached a place where your natural teeth do not look as healthy and as beautiful as they are supposed to, it is time to think about getting the help of a cosmetic dentist in fixing them. Here are three ways in which a competent cosmetic dentist can help you get a better smile.

They Will Whiten Your Stained Teeth

Teeth get stained because of poor diet, smoking and excessive coffee intake. When the teeth change colour and get a yellow or brown hue, you might become self-conscious, and start hiding when talking and laughing. Stained teeth also take away your self-confidence because there is a stigma attached to them.

It is advisable to have a competent cosmetic dentist take you through the journey of teeth whitening. They will know the right products to use, the correct procedures to follow and the duration of the procedure so they can make the necessary changes. They even have the technology, such as laser teeth whitening, to get you excellent results with minimum effort.

They Will Cover Your Chipped Teeth

Teeth can chip because of trauma to the face, tooth decay and other forms of damage. When your teeth are chipped, dentine and pulp cavity are exposed, which increases the possibility of ending up with tooth decay and gum disease. To prevent this from happening, the cosmetic dentist will use techniques such as fillers and veneers. 

Veneers cover the surface of your tooth and hide the chipped tooth while fillers complete the gaps left behind when a tooth chips. They can also get you cosmetic dental crowns if the damage is too deep.

They Will Reshape Your Teeth

Certain people develop oddly shaped teeth while for others, the unusual shapes result from injuries, in-growing of the teeth and other complications. A cosmetic dentist will file teeth and level them, and also reshape them into the ideal appearance.

Take time and visit a cosmetic dentistry clinic close to you. They will restore your smile and protect your teeth from an early loss.
