Most people want a perfect set of teeth and a winning smile. There can be a lot of roadblocks that prevent them from having the smile they want. That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in. There are many advanced techniques and procedures to help improve dental health and smiles. If you want a dazzling smile, Dr. Stephen Petinge and his dental team can help you achieve it.
How can cosmetic dentistry help your smile?
Cosmetic dentistry incorporates improving the appearance of your teeth and gums. There are various treatment options that your Saugus, MA dentist can use to reposition, reshape, align, or color teeth to improve their appearance and your smile. With all the advancements in modern dental technology, these procedures are faster, more effective, and pain-free. Here are some of the cosmetic procedures the Petinge Dental team may recommend for improving your smile.
One of the least expensive ways to get a dazzling smile is to have your teeth professionally whitened. The process removes stains and discolorations, so your teeth are left bright and white. You may try over-the-counter teeth whitening products, and they may help slightly. Having a Saugus, MA dental professional clean your teeth will mean a deeper, more thorough whitening.
The days of traditional braces are fading away. Invisalign is a clear aligner that can help straighten teeth without having a lot of metal in your mouth. The see-through aligners work to straighten your teeth and improve your smile. They are not attached to your teeth like braces are and can be removed for oral hygiene and eating.
Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed permanently over the fronts of teeth. They can dramatically improve your smile by covering small flaws. Veneers are natural-looking. Dr. Petinge customizes them so they look like your natural teeth. They can be used to correct many flaws like improper alignment, shape, color, size, and length of a tooth.
Crowns are a restorative treatment for teeth. Each crown is custom-designed to fit over a tooth. They will look and feel like natural teeth and are also used with implants. A crown does more than restore the shape of a tooth. It also restores the tooth’s strength and function. Crowns are durable and not subject to decay. They are able to withstand years of wear and tear.
Cosmetic dentistry helps create dazzling smiles with dental implants. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants are also a good option for teeth that have been severely damaged. The procedure will require more than one visit to the dentist’s office. But once the crown and surgically implanted artificial root are placed and have healed, they are permanent. They will feel almost like natural teeth. Dental implants remove the gaps and look and feel like natural teeth.
Beyond a Dazzling Smile
The wide range of procedures a cosmetic dentist can provide can give you a dazzling smile. But there is more! When your teeth are straightened using Invisalign, your bite will improve too. A properly aligned bite can prevent damage to the teeth over time. Cosmetic procedures can help you smile with new confidence. Feeling like you can smile confidently in front of others boosts your self-confidence and can help you nail that job interview. You are likely to see improvements in your overall health as well.
