Many people find themselves flustered with imperfections in their teeth, and some of them can be so distressed by them that they don’t smile as much as they should. Fortunately, modern dental science has developed a variety of ways to address these issues so patients can feel confident about their smiles again. Here are a few of the most common cosmetic dental issues along with what your cosmetic dentist can do to help.

Stains and Discoloration

Stains and discoloration are common problems for dentists to treat. Everything a person eats and drinks goes through the teeth, so the teeth get exposed to many things over years of use. Unfortunately, many popular foods and beverages like coffee, tea, berries, sports drinks, colas, wine, and the like are heavy in pigments and dyes that can become bonded to the enamel layer of the teeth, causing them to become yellowish or purplish.

Thankfully, professional teeth whitening treatments can deliver results far superior to those of any purported whitening product sold in stores. It comes in the form of a take-home kit or an in-office procedure and can leave a smile up to ten shades whiter.

Irregular or Uneven Teeth

A person may have teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped due to reasons such as genetics or teeth grinding. This can lead to problems such as headaches, wrinkles, and difficulty speaking and chewing.

Fortunately, porcelain veneers can transform a smile into a beautiful new shape. Veneers are porcelain or ceramic shells designed to be cemented over teeth to change their shape and cover up flaws. This treatment is the open secret behind many of the flawless smiles of Hollywood stars.

Chipped, Cracked, or Broken Teeth

Dental injuries can detract from the beauty of a person’s smile, and it’s especially important to protect your teeth from accidents if you play contact sports like football, basketball, soccer, or hockey. While no one wants chips, cracks, or fractures to happen, your cosmetic dentist is well-prepared to deal with these problems. Porcelain veneers or metal-free restorations can recreate a smile so that it is as good as new.

Don’t let flaws in your teeth keep you from smiling. Consulting with your cosmetic dentist can determine if any of these treatments are right for you.
