Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, and that’s why so many people are self-conscious about the way their teeth look. If you are living with issues like crooked teeth, gaps, yellowing, or missing teeth, there are some steps you can take to get the smile you have always wanted. The first step is speaking to a cosmetic dentist like the ones at American Dental. We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures at our 8 Chicago area locations; here are our top 5 ways to get the smile you have always dreamt about:
Yellow teeth can be caused by both genetic and environmental factors, and over-the-counter solutions don’t always do an effective job. Tooth stains can be even harder to get rid of, but don’t lose hope. Whether your teeth discoloration is genetic or it was caused by smoking or consuming staining beverages, our team can help you achieve a whiter smile. You could be just a few visits away from the sparkling white teeth you have always wanted!
Braces and Invisalign
Not only can crooked teeth make you feel self-conscious about your smile, but they can also cause issues with eating or speech, and increase your likelihood of developing tooth decay. Orthodontic treatments like braces and Invisalign are proven to straighten teeth, resolving issues like crowding, gaps, over/underbite, and more. At American Dental, we offer affordable metal braces as well as Invisalign and a range of other orthodontic treatments.
Crowns and Bridges
Damaged or missing teeth can cause difficulty with eating and speaking, and they can ruin an otherwise perfect smile. Crowns can be used to cap a damaged tooth, improving its appearance and preventing tooth decay. When you have a missing tooth, a bridge can be attached to the neighboring teeth to fill in that gap so nobody will be able to tell the difference.
While a bridge can cover a missing tooth, it can’t always be used in situations where multiple teeth are missing. They can also potentially fall out. For the strongest and longest-lasting fix for missing teeth, dental implants are the gold standard. Our team can create a strong anchor point in your jawbone and attach a durable artificial tooth that looks and feels just like the real thing. With proper care, your dental implant crown can last 10-15 years, at which point it can be replaced if necessary.
Dental veneers are made from durable resin or porcelain and are bonded to the front of your teeth. They can be used to treat a range of conditions from stained or yellowed teeth to misshapen teeth, gaps, and more. They can be used on one tooth, multiple teeth, or your entire smile to correct anything that makes you feel self-conscious.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you don’t have to live with it. Cosmetic dentistry can correct your issues so you can have more confidence in your daily life.
