The appearance of our teeth can have a big impact on our self-esteem, our self-confidence, and even the frequency of our smiles.
And you want to smile often … because it will have a positive effect on you and everyone around you. When you show off those pearly whites, it sends out positive vibes and immediately increases your level of happiness. In turn, the more you smile, the more everyone wants to be around you.
At Park Ridge Dental Associates, we realize that not all smiles are naturally perfect. Plus, a lot can happen to our teeth over time. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get the smile you had when you were younger, or always wanted.
In this blog, we’ll tell you how we can greatly enhance the appearance of your teeth with a variety of cosmetic options … Our dentists, Dr. Gaile Cerniauskas and Dr. Brett Anderson, are well-known for incredible smile makeover results!
Together, with their team, they can improve …
- Discolored teeth – Your teeth can lose their bright white look due to food or tobacco stains, or they can darken with age. Other causes include poor hygiene habits, disease, and medications (especially antibiotics given to kids while teeth are developing). We offer teeth whitening – both in-office and at-home treatments. Teeth can become eight shades whiter!
- Cracked, chipped, worn down, or widely spaced teeth – If left untreated, you are less likely to show off your smile in front of others because these smile concerns are very visible. With bonding, we apply a tooth-colored plastic – which matches your current smile – to your teeth. It looks and feels just like a real tooth. More severely stained or chipped teeth may require veneers, which are very thin strong shells that are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth.
- Crooked teeth or an uneven bite – If you have crooked teeth or an uneven bite, you may appear older than you are. As a result, this can chip away are your self-confidence and wear down your smile. A bad bite can make it hard to chew foods or even cause jaw tension. Orthodontic treatment can fix these concerns. Braces or Invisalign® (clear aligners) will straighten out your smile – no matter how old you are.
