An insecurity to many patients with a unique smile is the size and shape of their teeth. Whether it's because their teeth are too short, crooked, or gapped, patients prefer to have a smile that they're comfortable with, but believe that there's no way to change their dental situation. Thankfully, your San Ramon dentists provide procedures in order to enhance a patient's smile to be the best it can!
A popular procedure is dental veneers, custom-made thin shells created to be the same shade color of your natural teeth. This shell is bonded to the surface of your teeth in order to improve the appearance of your smile, whether you're covering up the discoloration, shape, size, or alignment of your teeth. If they're properly taken care of, veneers can last for several years. Keeping up with your daily dental routine like brushing and flossing your teeth is important. Although the veneers aren't able to retain immediate stains, if they're not cleaned on a daily basis by brushing, they'll begin to stain and it'll be difficult to remove.
If you're concerned with the look of a tooth that's particularly damaged, either due to an injury or decay, another option is dental porcelain crowns. This procedure encases the entire tooth and protects it from further damage or decay while also protecting the other teeth around it. This also increases its appearance. This restores your tooth to look natural, much like the rest of your teeth, if your smile has suffered because of this dental situation.
