Veneers can help your teeth by protecting them from stains and damage. A veneer is a thin shell that is bonded over the surface of teeth. They look like your natural teeth, and function like real teeth as well. Veneers are an option for individuals with stained, broken, chipped, or crooked teeth. Your dentist can evaluate your teeth and determine if veneers are a good option for your teeth.
Dental implants work by replacing teeth in the mouth. A post is inserted into the jaw to act as the root of the tooth. After the jaw has healed, a connector is attached to the post. A crown is then placed on the connector. The crown should be treated as if it is a real tooth, and this includes brushing and flossing. Due to the post being secured into place by the jaw, there is no chance of the crown slipping out of place or getting lost.
If your teeth can benefit from orthodontic care, your dentist will discuss the best course of treatment. Patients can choose to be fitted with traditional braces that use metal wires and brackets to put firm pressure on teeth and push them into alignment. You can also opt for Invisalign, a removable and clear solution to traditional metal braces. Another option is Six Month Smiles, which results in straighter teeth in only 6 months.
