In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the most prominent signs that you or someone in your family may be in need of cosmetic dentistry. Whether we're talking about teeth whitening, fillings, crowns or any other form of cosmetic dentistry, there are a few situations where you may find yourself in need of such services.
At Trimble Dental, we're proud to offer the best cosmetic dentistry services in Wisconsin, including everything from fillings and crowns to veneers, whitening services and more. In today's part two of our series, we'll go over some additional signs that you or someone close to you might need or desire cosmetic dentistry solutions.
Whether they've been knocked out due to a specific impact or through a more general wear and tear, missing teeth can be a major detriment to your appearance. Not only does it make you look older than you are, but it also affects the way that your lips sit on your face, thus causing an unbalanced smile.
In addition, missing teeth can pose major oral health problems, especially if a specific tooth has been missing for a long time. It may be difficult to eat certain things and bacteria can develop in those hard-to-reach places. This can lead to even more dental problems down the road.
There are multiple cosmetic dental options to remedy this situation, including several kinds of implants.
In other cases, the desire to improve one's smile or change their general appearance stems from confidence issues. In these cases, a major renovation isn't necessary as much as it is simply wanting to feel better about your smile and face.
In cases like this, teeth whitening may be the best solution for you. Teeth whitening won't cost a lot of money relative to other cosmetic dentistry choices and, assuming that you have a healthy mouth, can be performed quickly and painlessly.
Certain areas of oral care can occasionally bleed into overall health concerns, and one such example is when misaligned teeth cause pain in both the jaw and head. An abnormal bite can cause a huge amount of pain and discomfort, both from the strain on the jaw itself as well as from issues discussed in previous sections.
You may also be dealing with digestive issues based on improper chewing, which often traces back to problems with misalignment. If this is the case, you should see your dentist immediately to correct the problem before it worsens -- there are multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures to help improve the bite.
