Cosmetic dental treatment has seen a huge surge in popularity over the last few decades. Thanks to the advances in dental technology, there are so many different types of cosmetic dental treatments and procedures to improve the appearance of your smile that more adults than ever are speaking to their dentists about addressing dental aesthetic issues. You need to speak to your dentist and find out what treatments and procedures they offer. There are different types of treatments and procedures to meet individual dental requirements.
One of the most common aesthetic complaints is yellow teeth or teeth staining. If your teeth are yellow or stained, you are definitely not alone. Teeth become yellow or stained over time; therefore, you must always maintain good dental hygiene, which includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing twice a day and using a good fluoride mouthwash so that stain molecules do not get the chance to fix to the surface of your teeth and also less plaque and tartar form on your teeth which can affect the colour of your enamel as well as your dental health in general.
Teeth also become stained because of what we eat and drink. Food that is highly pigmented or drinks such as tea, coffee and cola can affect the colour of your teeth. Over time, these stains can become stubborn, and you will find that your teeth look yellow even after brushing them. You need to speak to your dentist and find out about teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is highly effective at removing superficial stains from the surface of your teeth, but stubborn stains and intrinsic stains that affect the dentin rather than the enamel of your teeth cannot be removed by teeth whitening. In this case, you will need to speak to your dentist and find out about veneers Gordon.
Veneers are a popular method of cosmetic dental treatment, especially for teeth that are stained and cannot be whitened by teeth whitening. Veneers can also be used for a range of other issues, such as improving the shape of your teeth, changing their size and even making minor adjustments to their alignment to create a neatly aligned smile where orthodontic treatment is not suitable or necessary. Veneers are used in smile makeovers and can be used in a combined treatment plan; for example, if you have crooked teeth that are heavily stained, you may wish to straighten them, to begin with, and transform them with veneers once they are aligned.
Veneers can be tailored-made so that they fit your mouth with accuracy and precision. The dentist may have to prepare your natural teeth by removing a very thin layer of enamel before placing the veneers onto the teeth; this can help the veneers sit in place correctly, preventing any damage or excessive wear and tear. It also means that they are comfortable in your mouth. Speak to your dentist today and learn more about veneers and how they can transform the appearance of your smile.
