Procedures that can give you a new look
- Posted on: Jan 29 2018
When it comes to our bodies, there are certain things that can feel hard to control. Weight gain can be frustrating, broken bones and sprains can happen at the most unexpected moments, and colds and flus can strike at any time. Fortunately, the same is not necessarily true when it comes to our teeth. Even when decay and accidents occur, there are easy solutions to get your smile back to the way you know and love it. In fact, even a small procedure can make a significant difference in the appearance of your mouth. Below are a few examples.
Having a bright, white smile can make you feel more confident and appear more appealing to those you meet. Unfortunately, everyday activities like failing to regularly brush and floss, eating staining food and drinks, or smoking and chewing tobacco can make your teeth appear dull and dark as time passes. Thankfully, there are whitening solutions for these situations and more. When you make an appointment and our New York clinic, we will sit down together and discuss what you can expect from a whitening treatment. With our professional chemicals, which work faster and stronger than many over-the-counter options, you can take your teeth several shades lighter in just one or two treatments. If an in-office session is not possible for you, at-home options are also available. The goal is to get you a brighter grin that you are excited to share with those around you.
Many Americans have misaligned teeth, but several feel that after middle or high school passes, they are too old to have them straightened. While it is true that orthodontics are a common part of adolescent years, modern technology and dental improvements have made it so that a straight smile is no longer limited to those under 30. One of the most popular options for straightening out teeth is Invisalign. The treatment process is similar to wearing a retainer, although the device is made with clear plastic that is not visible in your mouth. You can remove Invisalign devices anytime you need, so you don’t have to worry about them being in your way during important life events. Over the course of several months, the plastic pieces will shift your teeth from off kilter to seamlessly straight.
Chips and cracks in teeth are also a common problem that we see in the clinic. These blemishes can occur as your teeth wear down over time, or they can be a result of a hit to the mouth. No matter how you got yours, these marks can be painful or embarrassing. In these situations, damage might be extensive enough that removing the tooth and replacing with an implant is necessary. In other cases, veneers might be a viable solution. With veneers, we place a thin piece of porcelain over your existing tooth to hide any imperfections. Once the veneer is set, you can continue to live your life as usual with a smile that you love. Veneers are realistic and long-lasting, so you can feel confident for years to come.
