Stop Hiding Smile

Everyone enjoys smiling, even tiny babies. Based on research, smiling can lead to increased levels of hormones which improve your happiness and confidence. The release of dopamine and endorphins in the brain naturally occurs when people smile. When your body is flooded with hormones, it improves your overall health. Other benefits include a reduction in blood pressure, and an increased ability to relax. Being insecure and avoiding a smile can lower your confidence and take a toll on your health. Depending on the issues, there are various solutions which can help improve the appearance of your smile and give you the confidence to show it off.

Teeth Whitening

It is common for patients to be concerned with the shade of their teeth. Fortunately, there are different methods available to treat and prevent future staining of the teeth. As with any oral issue, it is important to first have good oral hygiene which includes twice daily brushing and regular flossing. This can help prevent sugars and teeth staining foods from building up and also helps keep your teeth clean. Through daily flossing, plaque and tartar can be removed which are a primary cause of cavities.

When teeth whitening procedures are performed correctly, the color of your teeth can be improved without causing harm to the enamel. Remedies which are completed at home can also be a good option, however, it is important to read and carefully follow the instructions. Some of the common whitening solutions which are offer include in-office whitening, trays, gels, whitening strips and toothpaste. Your dentist can help determine which whitening treatment is optimal for you based on your teeth and the desired outcome.

Dental Implants

When a patient is missing a tooth, it can result in more issues than most people realize. The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth can also be impacted. When a tooth is missing, it can cause the other teeth to shift out of position or rotate inside the mouth. Patients also commonly experience bone loss in the area where the tooth is missing as the root does not maintain the bone structure. When a patient has several missing teeth, it can change the overall appearance of your face and give it an asymmetrical or sunken look.

Fortunately, dental implants offer patients a healthy, natural solution which also functions just like the original teeth. Dental implants are also very secure and do not require additional maintenance or cleaning. The implant can be cared for in the same way the natural teeth are taken care of with brushing, flossing and regular visits to the dentist.

In addition to repairing or correcting the outwards appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can improve the overall function and the health of your mouth.
