Four Reasons to Get a Smile Makeover
It is not uncommon for adults to seek cosmetic dental procedures in Encinitas, CA. As we age, our teeth chip, discolor, and crack because of one reason or another. Furthermore, some people lose their teeth because of accident or decay, creating the need for a smile makeover near you
There are several reasons why a smile makeover is great, here are four of them:
- No More Teeth Discoloration
Despite what the mainstream media would have you believe, our teeth are not naturally white. A majority of us have off-white color and others a little bit darker. The dentine (the second layer) gives the teeth their shade and it is usually yellow or brown. The color of the teeth will continue to darken as we age because of changes in the dentine.
Furthermore, the overconsumption of coffee, tea, wine, and smoking can worsen the situation. However, with professional teeth whitening, you not only remove the stains but also get a bright white color.
At Sinclair Smiles, we have the Zoom teeth whitening system that is effective in delivering a bright smile. This system has both the in-office and take-home whitening kits that help to maintain the whitening results at home.
- Have Teeth Harmony and Balance
Our teeth develop differently depending on your genetics and childhood dental practice. At times, the gum may overgrow causing the teeth to appear smaller than the actual size. Furthermore, you may have minor teeth imperfections such as chips and cracks that affect the size and shape of your teeth.
We offer both teeth and gum contouring and reshaping to help correct the problem. Teeth contouring and reshaping involve removing small amounts of the enamel to create an even look. The procedure can help correct chipped, uneven, flattened, and pointy teeth.
Gum reshaping, on the other hand, involves removing the over-sized gum tissues to create a symmetrical look.
When your teeth are decayed because of poor hygiene and neglect, it affects your dental health and appearance. For minor, to moderate decay, we offer teeth cavity treatment such as a root canal. However, at times an extraction is an inevitable solution for tooth decay. The problem with removing your teeth is the unsightly gaps.
Missing teeth, left unfilled, can lead to jaw deterioration and further weakens your other teeth. Fortunately, we have different dental solutions such as dental bridges that can help replace the teeth.
Dental bridges involve cementing dental crowns to cover the spaces. The bridges require two or three dental visits to have them fixed. Dental bridges can last for 15 years.
For a more permanent dental solution, dental implants work perfectly. These are metal posts surgically fixed on the jawbone to anchor the artificial teeth in place. Dental implants are great, but you need to have sufficient bone. Insufficient bone support requires a bone graft to stimulate growth.
Dental dentures are also a solution if you have multiple missing teeth. Visit a dentist near you
for information on which dental solution is ideal.
For misaligned and crowded teeth, dental orthodontics offers the perfect solution. Several orthodontic treatments are available such as metal and lingual braces. We offer Invisalign braces for straightening your teeth. Invisalign is invisible and removable making it a convenient solution for adults looking for a less conspicuous orthodontic treatment.
Our cosmetic dentist in Encinitas will give you a set of Invisalign braces. Each set is to be worn for 14 days, 22 hours a day. The benefit of using these invisible braces is that you don’t need multiple dental visits. However, maintaining impeccable dental hygiene is required to protect the braces and keep the bacteria away.
Invisalign can correct moderate orthodontic dental problems. For severe malocclusion
, our dentist may recommend other treatments such as the metal braces.
