Can Dental Issues Affect Your Smile?

Posted on 1/9/2023 by OM
Can Dental Issues Affect Your Smile?Your smile is vital in building your confidence. If you have a gap between your teeth, it can create a wide-open space, making the rest of your teeth shift around. When this happens, you will likely have a misaligned or crooked smile. Besides, tooth loss can affect your facial structures. Your chin may start to recede, and the cheeks may sag. The good thing is that you can change your smile through dental restorative treatments such as:

Dental Implants

The dental implant is an effective solution to replace a missing tooth. It features a titanium post placed in the jaws. This acts as artificial tooth roots, thus, ensuring jawbone stimulation. In this case, you'll preserve your jawbone.

It is good to understand that not everyone is an ideal candidate for dental implants. For instance, if you have oral issues such as gum disease, a dental implant may not be a perfect solution. Also, if you smoke, you may experience complications during recovery. In this case, it is best to consult the dentist before considering dental implants.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is another way to improve your smile. It helps to repair a damaged and discolored tooth. Dental crowns are usually made from ceramic or porcelain, materials that match a natural-looking finish. Hence, no one will notice that you have them. The dentist fits the dental crowns over the damaged tooth to restore the tooth's natural functioning and appearance.

Teeth Whitening

Discolored teeth can impact your smile. Imagine having yellow or brown teeth. Most probably, you will hide your smile in public. Thanks to the teeth whitening options that can make your smile brighter. Teeth whitening involves bleaching products that help to remove discoloration from the teeth. You can get teeth whitening treatment in a dentist's office, or the dentist can prepare teeth whitening home kits.
