How to Correct Four Common Dental Ailments

Are you coping with tooth loss and decay? Dental ailments like these can be distressing, and their impact on your smile could affect your self-esteem. The good news is that, thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry techniques, dental problems that were once major cosmetic and health concerns can now be corrected so that your smile stays intact. Here are four common dental problems that cosmetic dentistry can now improve:

Smile

Complete Tooth Loss
When you’ve lost most or all of your natural teeth, dentures are a great solution. Gone are the days when dentures looked obvious and felt uncomfortable. Now, your cosmetic dentist can custom-fit an appliance that will look like your real teeth and let you speak and eat with confidence. For some patients, dental implants can be used in place of dentures. Implants are rooted into your jaw and are not removable, unlike dentures.

Partial Tooth Loss
If you lose one tooth or just a few teeth, dental implants and bridges can be good options. Dental implants are designed to mimic the look, function, and structure of the natural tooth that was lost. If you have a wide gap where you’ve lost multiple teeth, a bridge can be used to fill in that area. A bridge is essentially a crown or a series of crowns that are supported by the teeth on either side of the device. They can be matched to your natural teeth so they blend perfectly into your smile.

Cavities
Cavities can be repaired with amalgam fillings or with bonding. With dental bonding, your dentist can match the filling to your tooth color for a seamless look that is undetectable.

Tooth Discoloration
Tooth discoloration is usually just a cosmetic concern, but that doesn’t mean it should be neglected. Your dentist can use laser lightening techniques and whitening solutions to restore your bright smile. Veneers and laminates are also solutions for discolored teeth.
