Get A Smile You Love
Studies have shown that our smile is one of the first things that people notice (and judge) when they meet us for the first time. Whether in a job interview, on a date, or an outing with new friends, stained or damaged teeth can have an impact on our professional and personal lives. But people with damaged teeth also tend to judge themselves and can suffer from lack of confidence and self-esteem problems because of dental issues. When it comes to cosmetic improvements, the teeth tend to be the most common feature that people wish to fix. If you are suffering from dental imperfections that have made you unhappy with your smile, the good news is that it is still possible to get a smile you love. Dr. Jon LaFlamme, a dentist in Thorp, WI, offers a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments to address everything from stained to broken or missing teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments in Thorp, WI
The first step to getting a healthy, beautiful smile is by practicing good oral hygiene at home, and going to the dentist at least twice a year for a check-up and professional dental cleaning. Maintaining good oral health is essential for preventing gum disease and tooth loss.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments are designed to restore the appearance and function of damaged teeth. A cosmetic dentist can change the size, color and shape of a tooth, and fix minor spacing issues.
The most common cosmetic dentistry treatments are:
- Porcelain crowns/caps and bridges
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental Implants
Dental crowns are among the most versatile cosmetic treatments and are also used for restorative treatments such as when a cavity is too large to be treated with a standard filling or to seal a tooth after root canal treatment. Dental implants replace missing teeth. These artificial roots bond with the jawbone and offer a secure and durable tooth replacement option. Once a dental implant is placed, there is typically a waiting period as the dental implant bonds with the jawbone. This process can take several months. Afterward, a dental crown is placed to restore the visible portion of the tooth. They can even be used to replace multiple teeth as they can support a dental bridge or denture.
