Many of us suffer through our lives with teeth which do not look so great. We cover our mouths and hideaway which can impact on our relationships and careers both. It is great then that we have specialists who can correct most, if not all, these faults without too much difficulty. To find out what these experts can do, look for ‘orthodontics’ or ‘Braces’ online and see if there are experts in the immediate vicinity.
We are all familiar with the wire and cement contraptions that the poor kids were saddled with in times gone by, all in the name of having straighter teeth with no overbite of course. However, these days life is so much simpler since the removable set up was invented. Invisalign is a removable plate that pushes teeth gently into line but with the added advantage that the wearer can slip it out if they do not want anyone to see it. The plate is actually see through as well so it is practically invisible anyway.
If crooked teeth or an overbite is not the problem, these experts have a lot of treatments available which can help to shape the teeth into something that looks good. Yellow teeth, or those that are stained, are often hidden from view. In fact, some people will clean their teeth to the point that the enamel is removed and this then will tend to make the teeth look discolored. It is in fact the shadow from the inside of the mouth which is making the teeth look dirty or stained and the teeth take on a translucent quality.
The easy way to fix this is to place veneers over them. Veneers have been with us for some time now and are merely slivers of porcelain which are matched to the existing teeth and stuck on to the offending molars. This is pretty permanent and the veneers can last up for fifteen years or more. They not only give the person a wonderful new smile, but the bottoms of the veneers also allow the teeth to have a straighter look than the original teeth. The only thing which feels a little odd is that the teeth feel a little thicker than before. Also available now is the replacement of teeth by a more permanent method. Titanium posts are sunk surgically into the jaw bone and a new tooth clipped on top. This is still quite expensive but considering that the tooth will usually last forever, this is a great way to keep a full set of teeth for life.
Lastly, although a lot of people feel rather nervous when it comes to getting their teeth sorted out, it is the thought of pain and needles which usually puts them off. These days though, the experts have many ways to relax the person and use their skills to bring out the best in the patient. It must be worthwhile then to pay an expert a visit to see what they can do whether the patient is frightened or not.
