7 Ways to Love Your Smile
February 12, 2019
When it comes to DNA, you work with what you’ve got. But there are always ways to improve your appearance, especially when it comes to your teeth. If you want to love yourself, learn how to love your smile, whether you’re choosing cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, or general dentistry in Johns Creek.
Make any of these moves and you’ll realize quickly how easy it is to love your smile:
1. Get a dental cleaning.
You’d be surprised how much better you feel about yourself when you get a dental cleaning. Knowing that your teeth are smooth and shining will inspire you to smile more and attract good things to your life.
2. Say yes to porcelain veneers.
Sometimes patients don’t hit the green light for a smile makeover because they feel like they have just too many dental problems to fix. If your complaints are mostly on the surface, porcelain veneers will upgrade your smile – and all the chips, stains, oddly shaped teeth, gaps, and more – in one cosmetic dentistry procedure.
3. Fill in the gaps.
If you’re missing teeth, the foundation of your smile is threatened. Teeth that have been extracted or that fell out because of gum disease can cause neighboring teeth to shift and eventually lead to a changing face shape. Tooth loss is one of the fastest routes to looking older than you are, but dental implants take the place of the natural tooth root to stimulate the jawbone and keep your mouth healthy and strong.
4. Get rid of the discomfort.
There are many reasons for mouth pain, from a TMJ that is out of whack to misaligned teeth to clenching and grinding. These problems can all lead to bigger oral health issues like enamel erosion, cracked teeth, tooth decay, and gum recession. Invisalign braces can align your smile and make it work better while making it look better.
5. Correct that ugly tooth.
When you have one prominent tooth that is discolored, stained, or oddly shaped, it can make you self-conscious and mar your entire smile. A porcelain crown is customized to cover the imperfections so you feel like your smile is complete.
6. Eliminate tooth pain.
Tooth pain is one of the most intense chronic pains a person can experience. And once you have tooth pain, it is not going away until the underlying issue is addressed. Leave a dental problem unattended and it could lead to infection, root canal, abscess, or extraction. See your Johns Creek dentist at the onset of pain so you aren’t rushing in for an emergency appointment when it’s too late to save the tooth.
7. Get a smile makeover.
There is a dental solution for everyone. Cosmetic upgrades can be as simple as teeth whitening or as complex as veneers. Dental restorations include everything from tooth-colored fillings to all-on-four implants. Every smile makeover is unique and customized to the patient so you leave our Johns Creek dental office with a smile you love.
