Creating A Perfect Smile

Hi there, I'm Caylee Curtis. After going through orthodontic therapy during childhood, I started paying close attention how a nice smile can increase beauty. With appearance improvements, comes a huge confidence boost that can also bolster your looks. Upon making that discovery, I started researching all of the different ways people can create a gorgeous smile. As it turns out, dentists play a huge role creating a gorgeous smile by fixing tooth and jaw alignment issues. Dentists may recommend that their patients obtain braces, retainers or veneers that improve tooth placement or color. I will use this site to share information about these procedures and more. I hope to help you decide if these procedures are worth your time and money or if you should find a different option for your situation. Please visit often and check out my content to learn more information.

3 Tips for Improving a Crooked Smile

Many people have crooked or oddly-shaped teeth, which can make them uncomfortable about their smile. There are several cosmetic procedures available to improve your smile and make your oral care easier.

Extractions

In some cases, your dentist might recommend extractions purely for cosmetic reasons. Your teeth might be crooked because your mouth becomes overcrowded. A good indication your mouth is overcrowded is if you had problems with your wisdom teeth, such as ones that never came in at all or only partially erupted from the gums. Your dentist may want to remove your wisdom teeth first since this will create space in your mouth. Some wisdom teeth will require oral surgery if they have not fully erupted or are still below the gum line. Removing your wisdom teeth can also help avoid problems later. When your mouth is crowded, your wisdom teeth are more likely to develop cavities since they are difficult to clean.

Braces

Braces are frequently used as a cosmetic procedure to straighten crooked teeth and to help add more space between teeth. Fortunately, clear aligners are widely used and can make adults more comfortable having their teeth straightened later in life. Every plan for straightening will be different. Some adults might need their braces for several years to achieve the desired result, especially if there are many teeth that need significant straightening. As an adult, you can also expect you will need to use a retainer for several years or indefinitely after your braces are removed. Since the bone in the jaw becomes harder as we grow older, it takes longer to straighten teeth, and the teeth will want to return to their original position sooner. An added benefit of achieving more spacing between your teeth is that flossing and oral care are easier to accomplish when your teeth are no longer crowded.

Reshaping

Once your teeth have been straightened and repositioned as much as possible, reshaping might be necessary to achieve the final result. Procedures to reshape the teeth are frequently done on the front teeth, since these are the most visible when you smile. Your dentist may want to change the length of your teeth to make them more even and so your bite is more comfortable. Reshaping can also be used to reduce sharp or uneven edges of your teeth. Other procedures can be used to change the shape of your teeth, such as bonding, which might be used to make a tooth appear taller and become flush with the others around it. For some people, more extensive dental procedures, such as implants, veneers, and crowns, might yield better results.

Having crooked teeth is a common reason for people to be uncomfortable with their smile. There are many dental procedures that can be used to make your teeth less crowded and straighten your smile. Seek a dentist to help you with your cosmetic dentistry needs today.
