Unhappy with Your Teeth? Cosmetic Dentistry May Be the Answer You’ve Been Waiting For

cosmetic dentistAre you happy with your teeth? Although the vast majority of Americans think highly of a beautiful smile, only 32% of them are actually concerned with the look of their own teeth. Many people see their crooked smiles, discolored enamel, or missing teeth and think that there’s not much that they can do about it. If you’re one of those people, however, you may be wrong. Thanks to advances in cosmetic dental treatments, there are a number of procedures that can actually correct these imperfections and give you a boost of confidence, too.

What can cosmetic dentistry do for you? Check out these three dental procedures that will give you a brand new look:

  1. Teeth Whitening: Sure, there are plenty of strips, gels, and toothpastes on the market, but these often produce minimal results. Getting a professional tooth whitening in-office may be the way to go, especially if your teeth have been stained by coffee, tea, wine, and other foods and beverages. Of those who received these professional whitening treatments, 82% surveyed said that they saw a noticeable difference after the procedure.
  2. Invisalign: Are your teeth crooked? Do you have imperfections in your bite that cause pain or discomfort? If so, then you may need orthodontic work done. Adults with busy schedules, though, seldom want to see an orthodontist or cosmetic dentist and get traditional metal braces. Other treatments like Invisalign are often preferred because they’re not as obvious to the naked eye. These clear trays can discreetly straighten your teeth, so you can improve your smile without everyone knowing it — until they see the results, that is.
  3. Dental Implants: Although many people turn to dentures and bridges to replace missing teeth, there are other cosmetic dentistry treatments available today. Dental implants are one such procedure, and they’re becoming well-known for mimicking the look and feel of natural teeth. Around three million people across the U.S. now have dental implants, and that number increases by another half a million each year.
