|Restoring your teeth once something goes wrong gives you the ability to have a confident smile. There are many procedural possibilities you have access to, depending on what the issues are with your smile. Here are some of the top procedures to restore your teeth. Which would benefit you most?
As you age, your teeth begin to darken naturally. Besides aging, tooth stains can be caused by day to day habits such as drinking coffee, tea or prolonged smoking. Teeth whitening is performed by bleaching the teeth to make them whiter.
Implants and Bridges
Implants and bridges are made to replace the teeth that are missing. Implants are artificial roots that are used to hold together the replaced teeth. Bridges, on the other hand, are false teeth that are contained in position by the neighboring teeth.
A root canal procedure is done to treat abscessed teeth. The process involves cleaning the insides of a decayed or cracked tooth to remove all infection, filling the spaces and lastly sealing the tooth.
This is a corrective procedure that is done to correct all bite-related imperfections and the alignment of teeth. Dental braces are installed on the teeth to apply steady pressure that will put the teeth into a more favorable position.
Veneers are made of thin shell-like porcelain, crafted and customized to your perfect fit. A cosmetic dentist determines the size, shape, and color of your teeth to make the veneers appear more natural. Once prepared, the dentist carefully sticks them to the surface of your teeth.
Gum disease (periodontitis) is a bacterial infection that affects both the gums and teeth. Gum disease starts as gingivitis, which is more reversible. When it proceeds to periodontitis, you risk losing both your gums and teeth. At that advanced stage, a dentist will schedule a gum surgery altogether to restore your oral health.
Sealants are barriers that are applied on the ridged surface of molars and pre-molars to prevent tooth decay. They protect the teeth by keeping away the disease-causing bacteria.
Bonding is a dental restorative procedure undertaken to restore decayed, chipped, discolored and fractured teeth. This procedure uses a composite resin that resembles the tooth enamel in color. Bonding can also close the gaps in the teeth. This corrective procedure can be done in the dentist's office because it does not require complex lab work.
