Benefits of Dental Veneers

Contributed by DentalROI

VeneersDental veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can help to perfect your smile. Made from very thin shells of porcelain that fit precisely over the front surface of teeth, dental veneers can hide small imperfections, improving their overall appearance. The chances are that if you have ever admired the smile of someone in the public eye, they either have veneers or dental crowns covering and protecting their teeth. Someone is rarely lucky enough to have a perfect smile as it’s more often due to excellent cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Whitening

Are you happy with the appearance of your teeth, or do they look stained, dingy and discolored? It is rare to have gleaming white teeth and sometimes the color is down to genetics, but more often than not it owes a lot to lifestyle choices or is simply down to aging. Whatever the reason for tooth discoloration, teeth whitening is an easy and affordable way to get the whiter smile of your dreams. A quick search online or in your local drugstore will reveal a plethora of teeth whitening products, but if you truly care about your smile and want to ensure it remains strong and healthy, it is best to see a dentist and to have your teeth professionally whitened.

Benefits of Dentures

Contributed by DentalROI

Restore Your Smile With Dentures.Teeth are essential because they allow us to eat in comfort and to smile, laugh and talk with others without feeling embarrassed. Even losing a single tooth can be upsetting and can affect the function of the remaining teeth. Ideally, natural teeth will last for life, but the reality is that many of us will lose one or more teeth to trauma or disease and will need to consider ways to replace them. Dentures are a tried and tested method of restoring missing teeth and have been used for centuries. They offer an affordable and non-invasive solution for tooth loss and can replace multiple missing teeth or even an entire arch. Modern dentures look fantastic and are very different from dentures worn by your parents or grandparents!

Sometimes these teeth will push through without causing any problems and are correctly aligned and perfectly healthy.

Contributed by DentalROI

InvisalignTraditional braces consist of heavy and highly visible metal brackets and wires. These braces may be fine when you are a kid, but treatment isn’t ideal for adults and especially for people who need to meet clients or customers frequently. This is where Invisalign can help because it’s an adult-oriented orthodontic system that discreetly straightens teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Dentists far and wide agree time is of the essence when it comes to wisdom teeth. If your dentist, orthodontist, or oral surgeon indicates you likely need your wisdom teeth removed, do not file it away in the back of your mind for future reference. A number of problems can arise if your wisdom teeth are left in place too long. Though the removal of wisdom teeth will be a bit uncomfortable, failing to remove these teeth will cause even worse pain and problems in due time.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Contributed by DentalROI

Teeth WhiteningA bright white smile is frequently seen as a sign of youthfulness and good health, but very few of us are naturally blessed with beautiful gleaming white teeth. The shade of your teeth is influenced by your lifestyle choices, as for example, a liking for highly colored foods, red wine, tea or coffee can eventually stain your teeth. A diet that is high in acidic foods will have the same effect because it erodes and weakens your tooth enamel, increasing susceptibility to staining. Smoking is well-known for staining teeth, not to mention being terrible for your dental and general health! Sometimes the color of your teeth is simply due to genetics, so if your parents or siblings have darker-colored teeth naturally, it’s highly likely you will too.
