A new smile – known as a smile makeover – can transform your appearance and improve your self-confidence. There are a variety of ways your dentist can give you a smile makeover to suit your needs and budget. Here are four of the most common ways that dentists can transform your smile:
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to create a smile transformation. There are multiple ways to achieve whiter teeth such as using professional systems like the Zoom WhiteSpeed. Zoom WhiteSpeed has been clinically proven to whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single treatment which takes just one hour at Gosford Family Dentists.
Veneers can transform the look of your teeth without the need for big surgery. Veneers are thin coverings made from porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They can restore chipped, broken or discoloured teeth in the more visible parts of your mouth.
Veneers can only be added to teeth that are still healthy, so talk to your dentist to learn if it’s the right solution for you.
A dental crown is a type of cap that is shaped like a tooth that covers an existing tooth that may be weak, broken, or severely discoloured. Modern dental technology allows Gosford Family Dentists to create crowns that mimic the colour and shape of existing teeth. This technology is a popular choice for patients who can’t get veneers due to the condition of their underlying teeth.
Dental bridges help restore smiles to patients with several missing or extracted teeth. There are four types of dental bridges.
- Traditional bridges. Traditional bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth bonded to dental crowns on both sides of the gap that they span.
- Cantilever bridges. Cantilever bridges are only supported on one side.
- Implant-supported bridges. Implant-supported bridges are supported by dental implants instead of dental crowns.
- Resin-bonded bridges. Resin-bonded bridges are held in place by a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the back of the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth.
A dental bridge can restore your normal biting and chewing actions, and close gaps in your teeth to provide you with a beautiful and healthy smile. Patients who have had this treatment also report higher levels of confidence.
