At our family dental practice in Bloomer, we frequently get questions regarding the appearance of our patients’ smiles. Whether it’s someone who wants to get teeth that are a bit straighter, or someone who wants to go a few shades lighter in color, cosmetic issues with teeth drive a significant number of our patients’ questions.
If you are not too happy with the way your smile looks, the good news is that there are plenty of options for you. Any dentist in Bloomer can educate you on this matter, but we would like to give you the information you need right here and now. If, after reading this blog, you have more questions as to what you can to do straighten or whiten your teeth, please feel free to contact us via telephone, email, or even in person. We’re here to help you!
Options for Correcting Tooth Alignment and Spacing
Practicing dentistry in Bloomer means we have seen smiles of all shapes and sizes. Whether your issue is a tooth that came in slightly crooked, a gap between two teeth that seems just a little bit too big, or something else entirely, we can help you.
If you want your teeth to appear straighter, you may want to consider braces or retainers. The different types of braces and other straightening orthodontic devices available is a whole other blog post in and of itself; for our purposes, we will just say that you have a number of options, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
Another option to straightening your teeth would be the use of veneers. Although veneers are traditionally thought of in terms of what they can do for the color of your teeth, they can also be fashioned so as to correct slight gaps or other imperfections in the alignment of your teeth. While they are not the best choice to correct major issues, they can work nicely with minor ones.
Options for Adjusting Tooth Color
Many of our patients come in to see us and ask what they can do in order to lighten their teeth by a few shades. Whether the color of your teeth is naturally a few shades darker than you’d like, or your teeth have been discolored over time, we can help get your smile looking whiter and brighter without too much time and trouble.
If your smile has become discolored through the use of tobacco or due to drinking foods or drinks with dark colors—traditional culprits are coffee, wine, and tea—lightening the stains is a relatively straightforward matter. We can perform lightening treatments in our office, and we can also provide you with a take-home kit to use in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Getting a whiter and brighter smile can be accomplished in as little as a few treatments. This means you could see a difference inside of a week. If you have questions about whitening treatments, by all means ask us.
We are here to help you, and we look forward to helping you get the smile you’ve always wanted!
