How are your teeth looking? While brushing and flossing your teeth is imperative to keeping them healthy and strong all days of the week, it can be frustrating dealing with stubborn plaque, yellowing and browning. Thankfully, a cosmetic dentist can cure what ails you and then some. Cosmetic dental veneers and teeth whitening are some of the most common procedures outside of teeth whitening and can all but transform your smile in one or two sessions.
Worried about a dental implant? Don’t be! Over 10% of all American dental offices offer dental implant services, with this percentage increasing rapidly year after year as demand does — three million Americans have implants and that number grows by an estimated 500,000 at a time. Dental implants are useful for those that have lost teeth, be it to lifestyle choices or age, and resemble real teeth almost flawlessly.
Struggling with some crooked teeth? You could have some wisdom teeth that need removing. Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to come out of the mouth (also known as ‘erupting’), with most people having four in the back of their mouth — two on the bottom and two on the top. Impacted wisdom teeth are the third molars in the back of the mouth that lack enough room to fully emerge or develop, creating side-effects ranging from mild discomfort to severe pain and jaw stiffness. Most adults have their wisdom teeth removed as a result, making their mouth healthier and their smile more attractive all in one go.
Tired of yellow or brown stains? Knock that out with a teeth whitening session. According to recent surveys, nearly 96% of adults believe an attractive smiles makes a person more appealing to potential dates — another survey even saw a healthy smile to be not just socially important, but one of the handful of physical factors that remains constant even as we age. Your average cosmetic dentist is well-versed in the art of teeth whitening and can reverse years of damage in a mere session.
Concerned about your tooth health overall? It’s time to get teeth cleaning done. Brushing twice per day, as well as flossing twice per day, goes a long way in keeping your gums strong and bacteria at bay. However, it can be easy to miss certain spots and develop cavities when you least expect them. A teeth cleaning session can be done in thirty minutes or less, removing harsh plaque and pinpointing potential cavities or root issues that could turn into bigger problems.
Obtaining A Healthier Smile
A brilliant smile isn’t a far-off dream. Dental implants can, quite literally, fill in the gaps and make up for any teeth you’ve lost over the years while teeth whitening can reverse years of visual damage. More than half of the adults in the American population over the age of 50 believe a smile is one of the most beautiful features a person can have. Even a trip to the cosmetic dentist can spot issues with cavities or wisdom teeth, making beauty and health factors that can easily go hand-in-hand.
