We all spent a year with our faces covered by masks and staying home mostly. Now that COVID restrictions are lifting, that means venturing out in public more and probably socializing with friends. Whether you avoided the dentist last year or you have damaged, misaligned, or missing teeth, you might not be jumping at the idea of showing off your smile in public. If you feel self-conscious about the way your teeth look, check out three post-pandemic smile makeover ideas that will have you smiling confidently in no time. Today on the blog, our Albertville cosmetic dentists share popular treatments to restore your teeth and gums.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
For some people, they just have one or two problem teeth like a twisted or uneven tooth or gapped teeth. Cosmetic dental bonding can be a simple solution to this common dental problem. This in-office treatment can be completed in one visit to our Albertville dentist’s office near you. The procedure uses a composite material that adheres directly to the surface of your tooth and looks like real dental enamel once cured. It’s ideal for repairing chipped teeth, elongate a tooth that appears too short, or cover an uneven or twisted tooth to make it appear straighter. Some patients may only need one or two teeth treated, while others may prefer to have all of their visible teeth treated to create the perfect smile.
A longer-lasting option is porcelain veneers. This procedure does require two visits to our cosmetic dental office in Albertville, but the results are incredibly natural and worth the wait. Porcelain veneers can cover imperfect teeth to create a perfect smile. Veneers are ideal for covering chipped, stained, misshapen, uneven, or otherwise imperfect teeth. Getting veneers is the best way to achieve a confident smile. Results are natural because dental porcelain is crafted to look just like real teeth. With good oral hygiene and routine dental care, veneers can last years.
Missing teeth can result from an accident, gum disease, or be congenital, meaning specific permanent teeth never emerged or developed. Dental implants are ideal for replacing one or more missing teeth, although they are also used to replace entire dental arches of missing teeth. Dental implants are secured into the jawbone, and custom implant crowns are crafted to look just like a real tooth. Once completed, you’d never be able to tell that your dental implant isn’t a real tooth. You might be a good candidate for dental implants if you have overall good health, are a non-smoker and have one or more missing teeth. It takes about six months to complete the entire procedure, but the results are worth the wait!
