A little investment can go a long way! This is true in the area of your smile. With so many ways to improve your smile, your dentist can give you an achievable roadmap to the smile you’ve always wanted! Veneers, bridges, crowns and tooth bonding are some of the things your dentist may recommend depending on what kind of improvements you are wanting to make.
Most people think of cavities when tooth fillings are mentioned, but the composite resin that is used in fillings can also be used to fix the appearance of a tooth. This is often referred to as tooth bonding. Tooth bonding is color-matched to your tooth and can give a brand new look by filling in cracked or chipped teeth.
If you have a missing tooth, a dental bridge may be recommended. A dental bridge anchors to the tooth on either side of the gap and creates a place in the gap for an artificial tooth to be placed. The artificial tooth is color-matched to your existing teeth and blends in naturally with your smile! A dental bridge is a permanent fix for a gap in between the teeth.
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that is placed over the tooth, helping in two ways. First, it can protect a tooth from further decay and keep it from damaging the surrounding teeth. Second, it covers the tooth to improve its appearance. Crowns are made to blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth. For stained or damaged teeth, a crown is a great way to save the existing tooth and also improve the appearance of your smile!
A veneer is similar to a dental crown; however, it is just an outer shell. It does not surround the entire tooth but covers the outside to improve the look of the tooth. Just like crowns, veneers are color-matched to your surrounding teeth and blend in well with your existing smile! Veneers are an affordable, effective way to improve your smile!
