Maintaining a healthy smile can ensure overall health while enhancing a person’s confidence. If you are unhappy with your smile, it may be a good idea to visit a cosmetic dentist for advice.

Here are some ways a dentist can help to improve your smile and confidence:

Advice on the best ways to brush and floss teeth – Dentists can advise patients on how to much and floss their teeth without causing damage. Every time a person brushes and flosses their teeth, it reduces the levels of bacteria in their mouth which helps maintain healthy teeth and gums. However, over-brushing or brushing too hard can cause harm to teeth and gums causing enamel damage and gum recession. Dentists advise brushing teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush in a circular motion to effectively remove stains and plaque.

Dental bonding – If the appearance of your teeth is a concern, dental bonding may be a treatment to consider. Dental bonding can hide broken, chipped, and misshapen teeth and help achieve a natural smile.

Porcelain veneers – Veneers are thin shells that go over the front of a tooth. Veneers offer the most natural-looking solution for misshapen teeth.

Dental crowns – Crowns can strengthen a damaged tooth while improving its appearance. Dental crowns can also be attached to bridges to protect a weak tooth.

Dental implants – If patients have a missing tooth, a dental implant may be suggested. The root is attached to the jaw bone and the implant is placed on top of it. Implants are easier than dentures as they function just like a normal tooth.
