Are problem teeth ruining your life? Chipped, stained, gapped, or missing teeth may not cause pain or prevent you from eating, but they can decrease the quality of your life. If you are embarrassed to smile, talk, or eat in front of others, it might be time for a dental makeover. You know it is time to make a change, but when?
As the U.S. Marines say, “The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday.” In other words, it’s never going to feel like an easy decision. There will always be something that feels more important than your own smile. That’s actually an illusion. Today is the day that could change your life forever.
Cosmetic Dentistry Transforms Smiles and Changes Lives
Cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile from the inside out by whitening, straightening, or totally reshaping your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term that covers a variety of dental services, including:
- Dental implants
- Teeth whitening
- Tooth-colored fillings
Using these services, your cosmetic dentist can restore the functionality and appearance of your teeth to help provide the smile you deserve and boost your self-esteem.
Cosmetic Dentists Can Perform Miraculous Smile Makeovers
Your cosmetic dentist at Williams and Daily can perform a wide variety of advanced techniques to replace, reshape, whiten and straighten your teeth, producing life-altering results and an appealing smile.
Dental implants are permanent solutions to missing teeth. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is the closest thing dentistry has to starting over. Dental implants feature the implantation of a metal rod, known as an implant, into the jawbone. The implant eventually becomes part of the bone in a process known as osseointegration. With the help of a connector, known as an abutment, a tooth-like crown fits on top of the implant to make the implant look, feel, and function like a natural tooth.
Veneers are wafer-thin coverings that your cosmetic dentist permanently adheres to the front surface of your teeth to change their length, shape, size, or color. Made from porcelain or composite resin, veneers can solve a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues, such as:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Uneven or misaligned teeth
- Unsightly discolored teeth
- Gaps between your teeth
- Worn enamel
Teeth whitening brightens dull or yellow teeth by removing stubborn stains that over-the-counter tooth whiteners can’t touch. You can choose between a whitening procedure completed in our office or customized bleaching trays you can use at home. The in-office bleaching treatment uses advanced technology, such as a special LumaLight that activates strong whitening solutions, while at-home teeth whitening offers all the convenience of a home treatment.
Fillings can stop tooth decay in its tracks, but amalgam and gold fillings can cause filled teeth to look darker than they really are. Using tooth-colored materials to fill teeth helps the fillings blend in with the natural color of your teeth.
Dental bonding improves the appearance of chipped, broken, cracked, stained or gapped teeth. Your cosmetic dentists will apply tooth-colored composite resin to the affected tooth then sculpt the bonding material to match the size and shape of your other teeth.
Invisalign straightens teeth without the use of metal metal-and-wire braces. Invisalign uses a series of plastic trays that slowly push your teeth towards their desired position in your mouth. You will wear each tray for about two weeks, taking it out only to eat and drink or brush your teeth, before you throw the tray away. New aligner trays come in the mail.
Williams & Daily has you covered for the long-term
A dental makeover could change your life, even in your senior years. In fact, good dental health is the key to healthy aging. When left untreated, oral health problems can lead to diseases elsewhere in the body. Bacteria in your mouth can enter your bloodstream to infect the around your heart, for example, or travel to your lungs to cause certain respiratory diseases. Your dentist can also spot signs of some diseases, such as diabetes, before you realize you have the condition.
