Many people struggle with insecurities related to their smile, but with modern cosmetic dentistry techniques, it is no longer necessary to go on living life unsatisfied with the appearance of your teeth. If you lack confidence because of distracting fillings or crooked, missing, or discolored teeth, the cosmetic dentistry team at Hawkins Family Dental in Gainesville, GA can help.
Cosmetic dentistry is both an art and a science, so it’s important to find the right dentist for you that will help you find confidence in your smile. Take your time deciding on a dentist and consider the procedures available to you:
Tooth Colored (Porcelain) Fillings
Amalgam and gold fillings can make you feel like you have a mouth full of metal. These days, porcelain, tooth colored fillings have become the norm, but many people still have amalgam or gold fillings from older dentistry work. Fortunately, those can be replaced with porcelain fillings to restore confidence in your smile.
Insecurities stemming from discolored teeth are very common. Fortunately, modern techniques for teeth whitening have become quick and painless. If you’ve tried OTC teeth whitening products with no success, your dentist can use stronger solutions for better, faster results and a glowing smile.
Crowns, also called caps, are often used in general dentistry to protect fragile teeth, but cosmetically they can also be used to cover individual misshapen or severely discolored teeth. Crowns can be color matched to your other teeth and placed over the entire tooth/teeth that you find distracting to your smile.
Veneers differ from crowns in that they only cover the front, visible side of your teeth instead of covering the entire tooth. Porcelain veneers are an immediate and easy way to improve the overall appearance of all of your teeth, fixing alignment issues and giving you a whiter, brighter smile.
In the case of missing teeth, a porcelain bridge can be used to replace the missing tooth/teeth while using the surrounding teeth as a foundation. Porcelain bridges are a viable option if you have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth and want a permanent solution for a beautiful smile.
