7 Common Dental Problems & Their Cosmetic Solutions
A perfect set of healthy teeth can boost confidence yet dental imperfections continue to surface. Many people feel self-conscious and want to change just one or two things about their smiles to make it more attractive.
From cribbing ‘If only my teeth were longer’, ‘if my teeth were whiter’ to countless other Ifs and buts, people do not think twice considering cosmetic dentistry in Abu Dhabi to get that perfect smile!
Let’s take a look at the commonly treated dental issues and their cosmetic solutions:
Your teeth draw attention for not just the right reasons but some flaws too. A twisted or angled tooth can be a huge put off for people. Also, they hinder chewing or normal speaking ability.
What To Do? Generally, crooked teeth are treated with cosmetic dental bonding or porcelain veneers. They are made from tooth-colored material to cover the visible surface of teeth & provide a straight appearance.
Cracked or chipped teeth get damaged over time, become less useful and susceptible to decay.
If a chipped tooth is large enough to expose the nerves, you may notice a little pain and tooth sensitivity when exposed to hot or cold food and beverages.
What To Do?The missing enamel (the outer layer) can be reconstructed with dental crowns, fillings, bonding, and veneers.
People can become self-conscious if they have discolored teeth such as yellow or light brown. it could be due to various reasons such as smoking, drinking colored soda/coffee/tea, poor oral hygiene, genetics, and much more.
What To Do? Cosmetic treatment is simple and quick. There are various teeth whitening procedures such as Laser Teeth Whitening
- In-office Whitening
- Tray-based Tooth Whiteners
- Whitening Rinses
- Over-the-counter Gels & Whitening Strips
- Common Whitening Toothpaste
Having missing teeth kills a bright smile. Also, missing teeth cause neuromuscular problems, bone loss, shifting teeth, and other issues.
What To Do? Missing teeth are most commonly treated with a fixed bridge or dental implants. However, dental sittings are a necessity to determine a custom treatment plan.
Uneven Spacing Or Gaps Between Teeth
Gaps between teeth or uneven spacing can be embarrassing and ultimately becomes a reason to shy away from smiling. Even if the gap is small, it can become wider over a long period.
What To Do? Depending on the condition of the gapped teeth, several options are available such as
- Dental Bonding
- Porcelain veneers
Asymmetrical teeth look either too small or large. They look different and don’t seem to match with other teeth having a proper size, color, and shape.
These oddly-shaped teeth can make your smile uneven & affect the normal position of lower and upper teeth.
What To Do? Proper teeth alignment will not only restore your natural smile but boost confidence and dental health as well. Common solutions are:
- Composite Resin Bonding
- Tooth Contouring
- Professional-grade Teeth Bleaching
- Dental Crowns
- Porcelain Veneers
Gums are a crucial part of your dental structure but you don’t want to show them. Right? Usually, a gummy smile happens when the ratio of gums to teeth increases and the gums have grown down from the regular length (usually under the upper lip).
What To Do? If your smile is too gummy, ask your dentist for a soft tissue laser treatment. it is a quick and painless procedure to remove the excess gums.
