Having healthy teeth and gums is essential for maintaining your oral health, but in today's world of photos and social media, having a beautiful smile is also the standard. Are there things you don't like about your teeth? Maybe you live with broken, chipped, or crooked teeth? If you don't feel confident about sharing your smile, it may keep you from interacting with other people and making the right impression.
The good news is that there are many ways your dentist in Yamhill County can help, and it may not be as expensive or time-consuming as you might think.
Fixing Broken or Chipped Teeth
Dental bonding is an excellent treatment for fixing teeth that are broken, fractured, or chipped. Composite resin, which is the same material used for dental fillings, is added to your tooth to repair small imperfections. It is custom shaded to match your tooth and then polished, so it blends seamlessly with your smile. Bonding is also an ideal treatment to restore teeth that are yellow or stained, oddly shaped, or excessively worn.
Choosing dental bonding is a quick and inexpensive way to enhance your smile since it tends to cost less than other cosmetic dental procedures.
Straightening Crooked Teeth
If you missed out on braces as an adolescent or didn't wear your retainers, you probably don't love the idea of wearing braces to move teeth that have shifted into place. Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth without the need for bulky or unsightly metal braces.
Clear plastic aligners by Invisalign are utilized to apply gentle pressure where it's needed to move your teeth into alignment for a straighter and more beautiful smile. Better yet, the aligners are removable, so you'll enjoy all of your favorite foods and brush and floss your teeth with ease throughout your treatment with Invisalign.
