Making first impressions are important in any setting, from a first date to a job interview and everything in between. A great smile helps you have the confidence you need. The experienced dentists at Creekside Dental can recommend treatment options that help improve your smile. Here are five treatment options your Buffalo Grove orthodontist offers to help you have the smile you want.
Improve Tooth Color with Professional Teeth Whitening
Your teeth can become stained over time. Drinking dark beverages and eating some foods stain your teeth. Smoking and even some medications can cause the teeth to darken. A professional whitening treatment at Creekside Dental in Buffalo Grove can improve your smile and give your confidence a huge boost. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to get the results you desire. Whitening your teeth get rid of discolorations and stains that may have occurred.
Veneers are very thin porcelain or ceramic shells placed over the front of the teeth. They are often used to cover many different imperfections. They can close gaps, cover stains, reshape misshapen or short teeth, cover chips or cracks, and brighten your smile. Veneers are often recommended when you have a gummy smile too. They are used to create a balanced smile so more teeth and less gums are seen. This minimally invasive technique can give your smile a complete makeover. Because they reshape your teeth, they can make your teeth look straighter without having to wear braces.
The dentists at Creekside Dental often use dental implants to replace missing teeth. They restore your mouth’s full function and give you a natural-looking smile again. Implants look and feel natural. They can be used for either upper or lower missing teeth and they are hardly even noticeable. Implants are a comfortable treatment for missing teeth. This helps restore not only your smile but also your confidence.
Straighten Teeth with Invisalign
Invisalign is a set of clear, non-invasive aligners that gently straighten your teeth over time. They are more comfortable than traditional braces and just as effective for most people. They are custom-made, so they offer a secure fit that makes them almost unseen by others. Another advantage over traditional braces is that they are removable. You can take the aligner off to eat, for oral hygiene (which is important to your smile), and for important events. Once you transition through all the aligners, your straightened teeth will make you want to smile even more.
Filling Gaps with Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are often used to restore missing teeth. The prosthetic device fills in gaps between two natural teeth and restores your smile. By bridging the gap left by a missing tooth, your remaining teeth are held securely so they cannot move. This protects your bite and your jawbone. A bridge can totally transform your smile by replacing teeth. Dental bridges are custom made, so they fit well and look like your natural teeth.
