Have you ever considered a smile makeover to improve your smile confidence?
Maybe you’re looking for straighter and more balanced teeth. This is where Dr. John Cranham and advanced cosmetic dentistry options come in. Cosmetic dentistry is the easiest way to improve the appearance of your teeth for a brighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile that is designed to complement your appearance.
Common Reasons to Choose Cosmetic Dentistry
What are the most common cosmetic problems that patients have with their teeth?
Discolored or Stained Teeth
There are multiple causes of discolored or stained teeth. Coffee, tea, soda, and other drinks and foods may stain teeth over time. Smoking and tobacco products are also major causes of staining. Less apparent causes can also be a problem, as some medicines discolor teeth and aging wears down enamel to show the darker under-layer of dentin.
Crooked and Misaligned Teeth
Another common reason to choose cosmetic dentistry is crooked or misaligned teeth. Patients who want straighter and more balanced teeth often look for options that will give them a smile that is more aligned and aesthetically pleasing.
Decayed or Missing Teeth
If you have decayed or missing teeth, it is nothing to be ashamed of. Missing and decaying teeth is a problem that is more common than you think. According to the American Dental Association, “the average adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has three or more decayed or missing teeth.”
Cosmetic Treatment Options
Dr. John C. Cranham & Associates at the Chesapeake Center use the latest technology and dental treatments. Get the basics below and learn more about your cosmetic treatment options.
Patients are welcome to in-office or take-home teeth whitening treatments for stained and discolored teeth. One specific treatment that Dr. John C. Cranham uses is Zoom Whitening, which can lighten teeth by 8 shades in just one hour.
Invisalign uses custom-fit thin clear plastic aligners to keep teeth in place. This is the best option for patients who have used orthodontic treatment.
Durable porcelain veneers are the best option for patients who want a permanent solution to stained teeth. Veneers restore stained or discolored teeth for a whiter smile.
Dental implants are titanium posts that act like tooth roots. Implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gum line to create a sturdy foundation for missing teeth.
Take control of your cosmetic health. Cosmetic treatment can give you more confidence in the appearance of your teeth. Whether your teeth are stained, crooked, or missing, you have options to improve them cosmetically.
