Are you embarrassed about your smile? If you are, you might find it hard to talk or smile normally, which can impact your life. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry services offered by Millennium Family Dentistry in Meridian, ID can help you to feel better about your look—and protect your overall dental health.
The Powerful Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Although many people assume that cosmetic dentistry is all about looks, the fact of the matter is that it can actually help you to keep your smile clean and healthy, too. When teeth are crooked or the gum tissue is overgrown, the teeth can be difficult to brush and floss properly, which can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease. Other cosmetic issues, such as dental stains or inflamed gum tissue, can actually be indicative of other dental problems. Because cosmetic dentistry goes hand in hand with restorative dentistry, early care can prevent long term problems or even tooth loss.
Cosmetic Dental Procedures Offered in Meridian
To help your smile to be as beautiful and healthy as possible, Dr. Smith, Dr. Gerard, and Dr. Pieper offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, customized acrylic trays to move your teeth into place. In addition to taking less time than traditional braces, Invisalign retainers are completely removable and only need to be worn 22 out of 24 hours a day, which means you will be able to remove your retainers before you eat, give that important speech, or go on a quick date.
Dental enamel is porous, which is why the teeth tend to accumulate stains over time. If your teeth are dingy or yellow, consider teeth whitening in Meridian to make them look clean and healthy again.
Dental veneers are tooth-colored and tooth-shaped wafers that are cemented to the fronts of your teeth. Veneers can be used to correct the surface texture, shape, length, or color of your teeth.
If teeth are severely damaged, covering the entire visible exterior of the tooth might be the best option. If this is the case for you, dental crowns can be used to correct the look of your teeth. Dental crowns also restore structural integrity to the tooth and take advantage of your natural dental root.
