Cosmetic Dental Procedures That Give You the “Picture-Perfect” Smile

Wednesday, September 04, 2019

      Do you ever get the feeling that someone isn’t looking you directly in your eyes? Well, if you’ve ever had that suspicion, you’re probably right. If their eyes are looking downward while you’re talking to them, they’re probably looking at your teeth. Maybe you had a piece of spinach stuck in your teeth, then again, maybe your teeth are simply distracting. Whether they’re discolored or crooked, if your teeth are making people lose eye contact with you during a conversation, it’s probably time for you to make some changes in your dental routine.

     In recent years, people have been taking a large interest in how their teeth look. So much so that it’s very rare that you see people flashing their natural pearly whites. So why the sudden interest in having gorgeous teeth? Maybe it’s the sparkling Hollywood smile of our favorite celebrities that have motivated people to focus on their chipped chompers and crooked smiles. Also, orthodontists have become savvier on how they promote their cosmetic services.

     According to the Dentist’s Money Digest, the need for licensed dentists is projected to grow up to 18% by the year 2024, with the potential of opening positions for over 26,000 jobs! So it’s pretty safe to say that job security in the world of dentistry is looking pretty good, not only because of consumers’ interest in having nice teeth but also because of the life-changing effects of cosmetic dental procedures. Orthodontists are no longer seen as just teeth doctors who have drills and fillings in their back pockets… they are now seen as dental miracle workers who can transform a person’s life with just the confirmation of an appointment.

Achieving That “Picture-Perfect” Smile

     Achieving that picture-perfect smile isn’t always that easy. Some people never had access to proper dental care and others suffer from dentophobia (extreme fear of the dentist) and that’s the reason they have unsightly smiles. For the most part, people know to brush their teeth and floss but there are other aspects of dental care that people don’t know about. Because people don’t about these other aspects, it leads to bad oral hygiene, which then leads to trips to the orthodontist for cosmetic procedures.

     That’s okay though… that’s what orthodontists are for… to help you achieve the perfect smile you’ve always wanted. If you have issues with your teeth or notice that people are focusing more on your teeth than your eye contact, here are some dental procedures worth your consideration.

Teeth Whitening

     Teeth whitening procedures is a technique that removes stains from teeth, making them whiter and brighter. The procedure is not painful at all and is the absolute way to transforming your smile into one that can light up a room. With this procedure, just be mindful of the things you consume. Coffee and dark sodas are major culprits of staining teeth.

Dental Veneers

     Dental veneers are the solution to teeth restoration. This is where composite or porcelain shells are placed over your teeth to change the tooth’s color and shape, almost like a crown. Some common teeth issues that dental veneers are known to fix include:
  • Discoloration
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped tooth
  • Gaps in between teeth

     With dental veneers, you have the option of porcelain or composite but both options will fix your teeth issues. Porcelain veneers are the most popular and the most expensive while composite is the least expensive of the two and has a shorter lifespan than the porcelain veneers BUT both options will transform your smile within one to two visits… the real decision to make is how much you’re willing to spend because both options are life-changing.

Dental Implants

     Dental implants are the solution for those who are missing teeth. The way this procedure works is by having a tooth implant attached to a metal screw. That metal screw is then placed in the jaw where the previous tooth was. Implants are easy to blend in with the rest of your teeth and once they settle in with your jaw and the rest of your teeth, they will permanently fuse into place. This is the only dental procedure that supports and aligns with your nature jaw bone structure preventing you from having to resort to dentures.
