If you have broken, stained, or crooked teeth, you may find yourself hiding your teeth, and your smile. This can affect how people see you, as well as your own self-confidence. For healthier teeth and a beautiful smile, consider one or more of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at the Konig Center for Cosmetic and Comprehensive Dentistry.
Having an over- or underbite can not only affect the aesthetics of your face; it can also contribute to painful conditions such as TMJ. Many doctors might suggest surgery to correct this problem, but there are other, nonsurgical options that work just as well. For instance, Invisalign, controlled arch orthodontics, and even crowns and porcelain veneers can work wonders for patients, without surgery.
A crown is a cap that fits over your tooth. It may be needed if a tooth has a very large cavity, if a tooth is cracked, or if a tooth is very discolored or is shaped badly. Such problems can lead to even worse problems such as an absess, and eventually the tooth may have to be pulled. Crowns can help to keep the tooth strong, even if it has sustained damage; they are also made to blend right in with the rest of the teeth and look quite natural.
Veneers are simply thin covers that adhere to the teeth. They can help a patient with a gap between teeth, a chipped tooth, teeth that are misshapen, or teeth that are so stained that bleaching does not help. They can give your teeth the classic shape you want, and they are a quick, easy way to improve your smile. They look natural, don’t stain easily, and are very strong.
As you can see, some of these procedures are not only for cosmetic purposes. They can also help you to live a life without tooth or jaw pain – the smile you’ve always wanted is just a side benefit! There are many other cosmetic procedures available, as well, and the staff at the Konig Center for Cosmetic and Comprehensive Dentistry in Houston, Texas, can help you find one or more that will give you the results you want.
