We are so excited summer is finally here! This time of year brings so many opportunities to gather with family and friends, whether it’s a cookout, a long-awaited beach vacation, or even a special event like a class reunion or a wedding. Summer invites all these chances to have fun and be social.
But if you have embarrassing dental problems, none of these will sound like fun to you! Instead of looking forward to social outings with excitement, you’re probably dreading all the ways you’ll be forced to hide your smile so people don’t notice all the flaws and imperfections.
If this sounds like you, then it’s time to schedule a consultation with us at Duffield Dentistry. We have so many cosmetic and restorative treatments and procedures that can transform your smile in time for fun in the sun. Why wait one more day with a smile that keeps you out of life’s special moments?
To help you imagine how we can help improve your smile, today’s blog will highlight just a few of the problems that might be plaguing your smile and match them with possible solutions for those problems you’ll find in our Royal Oak dental office!
Problem: Chipped, Cracked, Stained, Or Misshapen Teeth
Solution: Dental Veneers
With minor damage to your teeth like chips, cracks, or stains, dental veneers can be the perfect solution!
Dental veneers are one of the most versatile dental solutions available in modern dentistry. Veneers are incredibly thin porcelain shells that are bonded and shaped to fit perfectly over your teeth.
One of the reasons they’re so versatile is because they not only look beautiful and natural, but they also cover damaged teeth and protect them because of their strength and durability. They’re also shaped after being bonded to your teeth, so they can help make your smile look uniformed, as well.
Problem: Missing Teeth
Solution: Dental Implants
Of all the dental problems a person might have, none will impact your life in a negative way quite like missing teeth. The effects it would have on your level of self-confidence is probably the most obvious way, but it also affects your ability to enjoy all of your favorite foods. So not only would you likely go out of your way to avoid being in social situations, you would probably also avoid nutritionally dense food because you wouldn’t be able to chew them as easily as you once did.
So this particular problem is just as much about your physical health as it is your emotional and psychological health. Dental implants would be a great solution for missing teeth.
In fact, dental implants have been shown to be the most permanent and effective method in recent history of tooth replacement. They not only look amazing, but they actually are quite successful in their ability to restore your teeth’s function.
The reason is because an implant acts as an artificial tooth root, and it’s then covered by a natural-looking dental crown. The implant will fuse to your jawbone and promote healthy growth of that bone the longer you have it. When it comes to a solution that provides the kind of strength and durability your natural teeth provide, dental implants are the way to go.
But keep in mind, dental implants aren’t for everyone. The best way to know if they’re the right solution for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Duffield!
Problem: Stained Or Discolored Teeth
Solution: Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment
You’ve probably seen all the teeth whitening kits lining store shelves and have wondered if they deliver on their promises. But the truth is, they contain whitening agents that are so diluted, it’s impossible to get the kind of results like you’ll find from the professional teeth whitening treatments at our Royal Oak dental office.
Professional teeth whitening is a simple, cost effective way to enhance your smile quickly and effectively, especially with Dr. Duffield and our team at Duffield Dentistry!
