It’s only natural for teeth to become discolored, worn down, chipped, cracked, or misaligned over time due to aging and usage. When your teeth are damaged, it can affect your confidence and cause you to avoid smiling or talking openly in front of others. This can lead to more emotional stress than is necessary. At Collins Dental, to remedy this, we offer a variety of cosmetic dental procedures that can improve the color, shape, size, and overall appearance of your teeth. Some of these procedures can correct several problems all at once.
Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to replace missing or broken teeth. These replacement teeth look completely natural and function like natural teeth as well. The implant post is surgically implanted into the jaw bone to replace the natural root of a missing tooth. Once the surrounding tissue has healed over the implant post, an artificial dental crown is attached to the post to complete the natural-looking restoration.
Sometimes, excess gum tissue can make patients feel self-conscious about their smiles. In these cases, gum reshaping can often be done to reshape the gums for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This is typically done with a laser or scalpel to remove excess gum tissue and create a more even gum line around each tooth.
A smile makeover refers to a combination of different procedures used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues at the same time. This may involve several procedures to fix problems with a tooth’s shape, position, color, size, alignment, and spacing of the teeth.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery has many benefits, but the main ones are that it improves your self-confidence and helps you look as good as you feel! Patients who undergo cosmetic procedures generally report feeling happier and more satisfied with their lives. That boost in self-esteem can positively affect all aspects of your life.
Patients often come to us with concerns about how aging or an injury has changed how they feel about their looks, and with our help, they can regain their confidence and feel great about how they look. It’s a life-changing experience that our patients tell us they wouldn’t have wanted to miss!
Another common reason patients seek cosmetic dental procedures is to straighten their teeth and correct their smile after they’ve experienced tooth decay or damage to their front teeth. Whether you have a gap from a missing tooth or a chipped tooth from an accident, we can fix your smile and help it look new again.
Our cosmetic dentistry services can help patients achieve the smiles of their dreams and make them feel confident about their appearance again!
