Smile imperfections can range from teeth discoloration, gaps, and misalignments to unevenly shaped teeth. Factors such as age, genetics, and lifestyle can all play a significant role in how your teeth look and change over time.
Cosmetic dental treatments such as the ones Dr. Oliveira offers at Alencar Family Dentistry in Chesapeake, Virginia, address aesthetic concerns and enhance your smile while also playing a crucial role in restoring your oral health.
Here is how an experienced cosmetic dentist can improve your smile:
Your teeth can be damaged by accidents, trauma to the mouth, chewing on hard foods, or clenching or grinding your teeth. Lifestyle habits like your diet and smoking can also weaken and erode the enamel. These issues can easily be fixed with veneers.
Crooked teeth are most often genetic. They can be addressed and fixed by a cosmetic dentist using procedures like veneers that can give you a natural and healthy smile while solving your dental problems.
Missing teeth not only affect your self-confidence but can also impact your bite. Gaps left by missing teeth can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift over time. Bridges can help restore your smile by filling the gap left by missing teeth. They are attached and supported by your natural teeth on either side of the gap.
A cosmetic dentist will determine if dental implants can rectify the aesthetics of your smile. They can decide your candidacy for implant restorations based on factors such as gum health and adequate jawbone density.
Dental implants are composed of three elements: a titanium screw, which is drilled into the jawbone, an abutment, which is a connector piece attached above the gum line, and a crown, which is attached to the abutment.
Teeth whitening helps improve the appearance of your smile. Many factors influence the color of our teeth, like smoking, improper oral hygiene, foods and drinks, and aging. Teeth whitening can brighten and whiten the color of your teeth. It is a non-invasive cosmetic dentistry treatment that will boost the appearance and shade of your teeth and help you show off your pearly white smile.
