Dentist visits can be some of the most dreaded medical appointments for certain people. However, if you have an experienced dentist, they will find ways to make your visit easy and relaxing. They can do this by setting up the office in a way that helps you feel at home. But it will mostly be their experience that will make or break your visit.
If you are missing one or more teeth and looking to restore your smile, you may need dental implants. They give your smile a seamless, natural look and uphold the integrity of your teeth, jaw, and gums. That way, excess pressure from biting or chewing does not strain your surrounding teeth and jaw.
A dental bridge is a permanent type of restoration that replaces missing teeth, whether just one or more. Dental bridges are designed to look and function like regular teeth and are custom-made for each patient. The problem being fixed will determine the type of dental bridge you receive.
Invisalign are clear orthodontic aligners for your teeth. They are custom-made trays that cover your teeth, gently pulling them into their proper position. With time, your teeth change position, and the dentists make another tray to continue shaping your teeth.
Most people have heard of dental fillings, one of the most common types of restorative dental treatment in the world. It involves drilling out any decayed material to create a clean, bacteria-free cavity that is then filled. There are several different types of filling, from metal amalgam that is dark silver-grey in color and that most people are familiar with, to fillings made from tooth-colored composite.
Do you like the color of your smile? Studies have shown that the vast majority of people would prefer their teeth to be whiter, lighter, and brighter than they are currently. Even if your teeth aren’t significantly discolored, they do get darker as we age, and many people feel that their teeth make them look older than they really are. The media has taught us that people with white, bright smiles are happier, healthier, more attractive, and more successful, so perhaps it’s no wonder that we want to own these attributes for ourselves.
