Is your smile haunting you? Does it pop out and frighten you when you least expect it? Maybe you realize your teeth are scaring off other people. If you think it’s time for a purification ritual, talk to your Red Bank dentist about cosmetic dentistry. Cast out the bad stuff, usher in the good, and get a smile that’s spookily, eerily sweet.
Your Enamel Color Is Creepy
Are your teeth stained and discolored? Some people have surface stains that have settled in the miniscule grooves and ridges of tooth enamel, leaving teeth looking brown or yellow. A love of dark sauces, wine, coffee, and other rich and heavily pigmented foods can steal the whiteness from your teeth. Other people have teeth that are naturally yellow because of thin enamel or simple genetics.
When you have surface stains, a solution like professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile quickly. A one-hour in-office bleaching gives you immediate results that are blindingly, beautifully white. Take-home kits from your dentist are far more powerful than any over-the-counter treatment you may attempt to use.
If your teeth don’t have the kind of stains that can be eliminated with bleaching, a treatment like porcelain veneers will be necessary to give you the white teeth you crave. The good news – veneers not only whiten teeth, they perfect them as a whole. Any smile imperfections that leave you feeling self-conscious are fully concealed with well-done veneers.
You Have Spooky Spaces or Crooked Crowns
If your teeth are crooked, crowded, gapped, or otherwise misaligned, Invisalign can put everything back in order. A treatment that takes an average of a year to complete, sometimes longer and sometimes shorter depending on where your teeth are now and where they must move to, Invisalign is discreet and effective.
No one needs to know that you’re straightening your smile, but you will know that nearly every minute of every day is dedicated to getting a better-looking set of teeth. Invisalign can correct nearly every misalignment problem that conventional metal braces can fix, and does so subtly, making Invisalign a popular choice among adults.
It’s never too late to get the kind of smile you want. If you didn’t have braces as a teen and you’ve always wanted a straight smile, Invisalign makes that possible, eliminating gaps and correcting crooked or crowded teeth in the process.
Your Teeth Are Like a Bag of Bones
Your teeth work hard every day. They chew, bite, help you speak, and sometimes they take the brunt of unconscious teeth grinding and clenching. Add decades of use to these realities and it’s no wonder that, eventually, your teeth can begin to break down. Even old dental work can deteriorate.
There are plenty of dental restorations that can repair a broken-down teeth, and beautify your smile at the same time. Porcelain crowns cover broken, misshapen, or odd-looking teeth so they blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Tooth-colored composite fillings do more than just repair cavities, they can correct minor imperfections and build teeth back up so they are whole, healthy, and strong.
