Unhappy with Your Smile? Consider These 3 Dental Procedures That Could Help

Many people are unhappy with the way their smile looks. Many of those people assume that their options are limited. The truth is that there are many cosmetic dentistry options that can help you feel more confident in your smile. Read on to learn about them, or if you want to get started, reach out to California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 and make an appointment.

Teeth whitening

Easily the most popular option, teeth whitening is a quick and simple process. While there are at-home options, getting your teeth whitened by your dentist is going to result in the best results. Another bonus to working with a dentist is that, unlike over the counter treatments, teeth whitening from your dentist leads to immediate results.

One thing to note about teeth whitening is that it isn’t permanent. Think of it similarly to getting your white clothing brighter by bleaching them. While it does temporarily work, eventually the results will fade. However, if you’re sure to brush twice a day and take care of your teeth, then the whitening treatment can last for a long time.

Fix gaps, cracks, and more with dental bonding

If you have gaps in your teeth, cracks in one or more tooth, spaces or chips in your teeth, then bonding may be the solution you’re looking for. While some people like having small gaps between their teeth, others don’t like – and gaps can make it easier for germs and bacteria to wreak havoc on your teeth. Bonding involves taking a material that’s colored like your teeth and applying it to your teeth. It can typically be done in a single visit and can last for years, depending on placement.

Braces can fix many issues

If you don’t like the way your smile looks then braces may be an option. This is often the choice for a person who has teeth that aren’t straight, has an overbite, or has an underbite. In sort, if you don’t like the way your teeth are laid out, then braces can make a huge difference. You could go the route of traditional wire braces or, for less severe dental issues, you could choose Invisalign. This newer technology involves removeable retainers that allow the user to take them out to eat. They’re also virtually invisible. No everyone – or every issue – is a good candidate for Invisalign so be sure to talk to your dentist.
