Are you making New Year’s resolutions? Even if you aren’t, the new year is a great opportunity to do something for yourself — something that could make a difference for many years to come.
This could be the year you finally give yourself a smile makeover.
If you are tired of the condition of your teeth, then our team at Dr. Hugh B. Rosenblatt’s office in Boynton Beach, FL is ready to turn your dream smile into reality.
There are lots of ways you can change your smile, and we’ll discuss eight of those changes below. Choose one or combine two or more.
▷ 1. Get Rid Of The Stains
There’s a reason you see some many “teeth whitening” products when you stroll down the toothpaste aisle. Most people would agree that a whiter, brighter smile makes a difference in your overall appearance.
The more we eat and drink, the deeper those stains become. As you get older, it’s natural for your teeth to lose some of their pearly white shine. Professional teeth whitening can lift those deep stains, to give you a more attractive and more youthful looking smile.
▷ 2. Close The Gap In Your Smile
Many people don’t like having extra space between their teeth. From a health standpoint, this could affect your risk for gum disease as well.
We want you to be happy with your smile, and we want your mouth to be as healthy as possible. Services including Invisalign® and dental veneers could help you close any gaps between your teeth. Which one is right for you could depend on the size and location of the gap as well as what other changes you may want to make.
▷ 3. Straighten Your Teeth
Orthodontic care isn’t just for teens anymore. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to gently push your teeth into better positions to give you a straighter, more beautiful smile.
Invisalign is much more discreet than braces, too, which is why many of our adult patients prefer it as a way to correct crooked and crowded teeth.
▷ 4. Fix a Broken Or Chipped Tooth
Life happens, and when it does, it can leave you with teeth that aren’t quite as whole as they used to be. Broken and chipped teeth are more common than many people realize. They can affect both the appearance of your smile as well as your ability to bite and chew.
Fortunately, we have multiple ways of repairing your damaged teeth. Dental crowns, tooth bonding, and veneers could help you restore your smile.
▷ 5. Replace Your Old Metal Fillings
If you are like more than 90 percent of adults in the United States, you will have a cavity at one time or another. If you had one years ago, you may have received a gold or amalgam filling. Your metal filling restored the function of your tooth, but it also may detract from your smile.
If you would like a more natural-looking smile, our tooth-colored bonding material can protect your tooth while saving your smile, too.
▷ 6. Restore Your Cracked Tooth
Teeth crack for a number of reasons. Clenching and grinding can weaken the structure of your teeth. Biting into the wrong thing, such as an unpopped kernel of popcorn, an olive pit, or a piece of ice, could cause a crack to form.
To prevent this from getting worse, you can get a dental crown so your tooth can look and function as good as new.
▷ 7. Replace Your Missing Teeth
Believe it or not, the average American will lose one or more teeth during his or her lifetime. If this has happened to you, it can affect your smile and your self-confidence.
Whether you need to replace one tooth, a few teeth, or every one of your teeth, we have solutions that could help you. Don’t forget to ask about dental implants if you do need teeth replaced.
▷ 8. Get Rid of Gum Disease
Gum disease can take a toll on your smile as well. Gum infections can cause your gums to appear red or swollen, and they can cause bleeding. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss as well. By removing the infection, you may be improving and saving your smile.
