Its thought that approximately 4 in 10 people are unhappy with their teeth. We all want to have the perfect smile but not all of us are fortunate enough to have the smile we long for. The good news is that with a bit of work, you can make your teeth look better, which will, in turn, boost your self-confidence. Here’s what you can do:
Opt for Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a great way of improving your teeth. They can fill in the gaps between your teeth or even cover up stained teeth. A veneer is a very strong cover that’s quite thin and can fit over the top of teeth. This is usually a good procedure to consider if you want minimal fuss with some good results. Veneers are also very long-lasting so once they’ve been fitted you should expect to have great-looking teeth for many years.
Opt for Braces
If your teeth need pushing back, pushing forward or straightening, you might want to consider getting dental braces. Braces will slowly but surely push your teeth into the correct position. However, they are highly visible and could make you feel even more conscious. An alternative is invisalign which works in the same way as braces but they’re much harder to see.
Please note, these procedures do not produce instant results but they can help you feel better about your teeth.
Opt for Teeth Whitening
These days, many people are opting for teeth whitening procedures. With a bit of treatment, your dentist can make your teeth look naturally whiter, or as white as you wish. Some people choose this option rather than using whitening toothpaste as the effect tends to be more obvious.
If you do wish to use whitening toothpaste, you will need to make sure that you continue to use the toothpaste every day, at least twice a day.
Opt for Crowns
Crowns are typically made from porcelain and are usually attached to teeth after a root canal. The crown is added to protect the tooth but they can also be used to stabilize teeth should they need it. Crowns can last for many years but you need to be careful when you’re biting down on really hard foods as they could damage the crown. Crowns don’t always make your teeth look better but they can help to protect them. When you take more care of your teeth you’ll start to feel better about them.
It is possible for you to become happier with your teeth, you just need to be prepared to do a bit of work. Opt for dental veneers if your teeth are stained, using different types of braces to push teeth into place or whiten them for a cleaner look. Finally, you might want to opt for crowns that can protect your teeth. Do what you can to look after your teeth so you start to feel happier with the way they look.
