One of the first things that most people notice about others when they first meet is their smile. If yours has flaws like crooked, missing, or stained teeth, then you may not smile as often, or when you do, you might feel embarrassed. However, that can change with a smile makeover using these dental procedures.
One of the easiest ways to make your smile appear brighter is teeth whitening. While you could use whitening toothpaste, mouthwashes, or whitening strips, they don’t last as long or do as good of a job as a whitening procedure done by our dentist. The results from your professional teeth whitening procedure can last up to three years.
If you have cracked or chipped teeth from an accident or decay, our dentist at Peabody Dental Group can apply veneers to cover them up. Veneers look natural, so even when someone is close to you, they won’t know that you have veneers. Veneers can quickly restore your teeth so that you will want to show your smile again.
This procedure is more invasive than teeth whitening or veneers. Putting crowns over damaged teeth can restore both the look of your smile and the function of your teeth. A severely cracked or broken tooth could sustain further damage by continued use, but capping it with a crown protects it, and you’ll be able to eat normally. However, crowns can also cap healthy teeth to improve their appearance.
The most invasive procedure to improve your smile is inserting dental implants. To put in implants, the dentist will remove damaged teeth and replace them with artificial roots and crowns. Teeth implants are sturdy, so you can eat almost anything you did before your teeth sustained damage.
Many other dental procedures, such as braces, dental bonding, and clear aligners, can help restore your smile. Our dentist in Peabody, MA, can examine your teeth and recommend the best procedures for you.
