Do you have a special occasion coming up? Is there a class reunion in your future? A wedding? Are you taking a family photo and want to look your best? Have you been looking in the mirror and feeling dissatisfied with what you see? Does your smile seem lackluster? Present your best self by beginning with an attractive smile.
Over time, your smile is aging. You may not realize it, but your teeth discolor over time. Drinking coffee, tea, or red wine can affect the brightness of your teeth. Smoking can leave telltale stains. Your dentist can work with you to provide the best, most modern ways of whitening your teeth and reversing discoloration, whether through an at-home or an in-office procedure.
Even our normal everyday use of our teeth can wear away the tooth enamel and leave teeth chipped and unattractive. If whitening doesn’t achieve all of your smile goals, you may consider composite bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns. These options can cover the gaps left by missing or misaligned teeth and can completely hide chipped teeth, restoring the smile you used to love.
Do you wear dentures? Older dentures can discolor faster than our natural teeth. If your dentures are more than six years old, you should talk to your dentist about revitalizing them, or about getting a new pair. Changes in your gums and jaw can cause dentures to fit poorly over time. Coupled with the expected discoloration, it can necessitate a new pair of dentures every 6-10 years.
Your dentist can help you determine the right course to rejuvenate your smile, and by extension, to rejuvenate YOU. You will look younger, you will feel better, and people will respond to you more positively. Many of the people you already know may not be able to pinpoint what you’ve done to change your appearance, but they do know that you look your best, and they will respond as such. It’s never too late to make immediate improvements to your smile that can enhance your life for years to come. Talk to your Morehead City cosmetic dentist today!
