Hate Your Teeth? Here’s What You Should Do

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, whether they’re meeting you for the first time or you are greeting a friend or loved one. This means that if you don’t like the way your smile looks or you hate your teeth, you’re always aware of your teeth when you smile, talk, or laugh. This can take a serious toll on your confidence, leaving you less likely to take part in social activities, and it can even affect your job performance. The good news is that you don’t have to live with a smile you hate! Our cosmetic dentist in Cary has a wide variety of solutions aimed to improve or restore the health and appearance of your teeth so you can smile with confidence in every situation!

Teeth Whitening for Stained Teeth

If your teeth are generally healthy but instead of being a bright white, they’re more of a dingy yellow, teeth whitening from our Cary cosmetic dentist may be the solution to restore their appearance! Teeth can get a stained or yellow appearance from a variety of factors, including:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Smoking
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Medications

However, years of staining can be erased after just one simple whitening treatment. We take impressions of your teeth to make custom trays, provide you with a special bleaching agent and instructions, then you can apply it in your own home safely and comfortably. Best of all, as long as you maintain good dental hygiene, brush twice a day and rinse your mouth with water after having coffee or other staining foods and drinks, your teeth can look brilliantly white for years!

Dental Veneers for Chipped or Stained Teeth

If you hate how your chipped, crooked, or mis-shapen teeth make your smile look, dental veneers are a popular option. These are thin, porcelain or resin shells that are applied to the front and sides of your teeth, masking or covering up issues like stains, gaps, or chips. For years, veneers were a complicated procedure because dentists would have to take impressions or molds of your teeth, send them to a lab to have the veneers made, then wait for them to be shipped back. Today, using in-house CEREC Digital Imaging, we are able to create your veneers in just a few hours using computer aided design (CAD) and 3D imaging. This means you won’t have to wait for a lab, and the final result is much more accurate. Veneers are a non-invasive option that is ideal for obtaining that gleaming, picture-perfect smile because they resist staining and are easy to care for and can last up to 10 years. This is especially true if you practice good dental hygiene, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your Cary dentist for professional teeth cleanings.

Dental Implants for Missing and Broken Teeth

If you suffer from broken or missing teeth or severe tooth decay, it’s normal to feel self-conscious or hate the way your teeth look. Fortunately, even severe issues can be repaired and restored with dental implants. This is a permanent solution used to replace teeth that have been removed and offers a more stable, comfortable experience than wearing dentures. Dental implants work by fusing metal posts directly into the jaw bone, then natural-looking teeth are applied to the post by a cosmetic dentist. The result is a smile that is attractive and natural, while offering a full range of functionality, including eating, talking, and biting. Plus, with proper care, including brushing, flossing, and dental care, they can last around 25 years and have a very high success rate.

A Cosmetic Dentist Can Give You a Custom Smile

If you have several concerns about your teeth, or you simply aren’t sure what your best option is, we offer Smile Design – this is a personalized consultation where our cosmetic dentist will sit down with you, discuss your concerns and goals for your dental health, and provide you with options. We offer a lab-created wax modeling of your teeth which lets you preview how each option will make your smile look, allowing you to make a fully informed decision. Smile Design can consist of many different procedures as you and your dentist have a plan in place to restore your teeth to the bright, healthy smile you deserve. Best of all, by having a dental strategy, you can have the work done in an orderly, consistent way that makes sense, rather than relying on a variety of procedures at different times from different dentists.
