When it comes time to think of all your goals for the new year, “great dental health” may not make the list. But how about finally taking care of stained and discolored teeth? Or doing something about crooked teeth or a painful jaw? Whether you see the dentist for health or cosmetic reasons, there are many ways he or she can help you to have the best year ever!
A beautiful smile
What bothers you most about your teeth? Over time, teeth become stained because of smoking, medications, eating habits, and aging. Teeth whitening can help with these stains, which are often set within the deeper layers of the tooth. If the stains are so bad that tooth whitening won’t do the trick, veneers placed over the teeth can give them a whole new look. Veneers can also help to correct gaps in between teeth or teeth that are misshapen. Crowns, caps that fit over teeth, can also help to cover discolored or damaged teeth. Or maybe you have always felt like you have too much gum tissue, which gives you a “gummy” smile. A laser gum lift can reshape the gum tissue so that you can show off your teeth. Another option is a nonsurgical facelift, in which your dentist develops a way to rejuvenate your facial features with a combination of dental techniques that address any issues you have.
A healthy smile and a healthy you
It is hard to feel like smiling if you are in constant pain. TMJ is a condition that can cause headaches, jaw aches, and pain while chewing or even talking. Your dentist can help you find relief, by correcting crooked teeth, realigning your bite, and correcting an overbite or underbite with Invisalign, orthodontics, or by replacing missing teeth with an implant or a dental bridge.
