One of the first features that people notice when they meet you is your smile. Are you proud to share your smile with the world, or are there aspects about it that you’d like to change or improve? Modern dentistry offers a lot of great cosmetic options for improving the appearance of your smile, and a bonus is that many of these treatments also improve function. Your Albuquerque dentist discusses different options for improving your smile.
This is a great option for busy adults or teens who are interested in discreetly straightening their teeth. Instead of using traditional metal brackets, Invisalign straightens your teeth using clear plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. Your aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day and changed every two weeks. Your dental provider can determine if you’re a candidate for Invisalign with a thorough examination and x-rays. Most cases take 12-18 months to complete and the result is a beautiful, straight smile that will restore your confidence!
Porcelain Crowns and Veneers
If you have teeth that are fractured, chipped or in need of repair porcelain crowns or veneers may be a great solution for you. Veneers are a thin shell of porcelain designed to fit over your natural tooth structure that can repair small chips, wear, staining and discoloration. Veneers are custom blended to match your teeth and they can be used to repair one or two teeth, or enhance an entire smile.
Porcelain crowns are used to repair teeth that have been damaged beyond what a filling or veneer can repair. A crown is designed to fit over your tooth like a cap, which protects the integrity of your natural tooth structure and root. Crowns are also blended to match your existing teeth so that your smile looks natural.
