It’s always a good idea to speak with your dentist about receiving a comprehensive oral examination to determine which tooth restorations will be most effective for your oral health. Although some products are better than others for restoring the look of your teeth, any dental damage that you may have suffered will require additional repairs to ensure your smile will function as intended. Here are some options to consider:
Dental crown – The best choice for restoring a smile by capping and concealing teeth is via a dental crown. Dental crowns are equipped to fully conceal teeth on all sides down to the gum line. They can be used to not only shield the tooth but to enhance its look, as they are fully customizable and can be styled, shaped, and colored as your tooth requires.
Dental veneers – Dental veneers are tooth restorations designed to only cover the fronts of teeth. Dental veneers are very thin and very durable and can be shaped and modified as needed. They can even be used to repair spacing issues such as minor malocclusions with teeth.
Composite dental filling – If you are under the effects of a cavity and tooth decay, a dental filling will be required. Tooth-colored fillings such as composite fillings are often your best choice, as they are very durable and can easily be used on even the tiniest of cavities and can be blended and shaded to mimic the natural color of a tooth.
Tooth whitening system – If you seek to remove deep stains and discolorations, teeth whiteners are your best choice. Despite several varieties and types of teeth whitening products on the market, your best option is a professional tooth whitening treatment applied directly at a dentist office by a dentist. These forms of tooth whitening treatments are customized to your individual profile and can dramatically enhance the color of your smile.
