There are very few people lucky enough to have a completely perfect smile, so most of us have one or two reasons why we might want to see a cosmetic dentist. Whether your teeth are discolored, uneven, or have gaps, there is a solution in dental care for you. Take a peek at this list of common cosmetic dental issues, and find the solution that will give you the perfect smile.

Tooth Discoloration

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, over half of adults aged 50 and over say that a person's smile is their most attractive feature as they age. Tooth color has a huge impact on the attractiveness of someone's teeth, but almost everyone faces some discoloration from everything we drink and by simple aging. Cosmetic dentists are experts in teeth whitening and in making your whitened teeth look natural with the tone of your face and hair. You can also look into veneers as an option for whiter teeth.

Missing Teeth

Not only can a missing tooth impact the appearance of your smile, but it will also affect your bite and can lead to an increase in risk for tooth decay. To replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, consider dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures. For a single missing tooth, dental implants are often the most effective as a titanium replacement tooth can be rooted into your healing jawbone.

Spacing And Alignment Of Teeth

Your smile's appearance may be affected by teeth that are crooked, overlapping, or have gaps between them. While this doesn't necessarily affect your ability to eat or drink, it may affect your self-confidence. You can straighten and align teeth with Invisalign or traditional orthodontics, or these slight issue can be improved with veneers.

Uneven Or Chipped Teeth

Maybe you got a small chip on your tooth during a minor biking accident or biting down too hard on something, and never found the time to get it fixed. You can get your teeth cosmetically bonded for a more harmonious and balanced smile. Bonding involves a dentist adhering a tooth-colored, putty-like resin to your tooth with an ultraviolet light. This procedure can also smooth out the appearance of uneven teeth or fill the gaps in cracked teeth.

Your smile is one of the first things about you that people will notice, so it is important for your teeth to look good. Find your perfect smile today with one of these procedures.
