Everyone should feel proud of their smile and thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, it’s easier than ever. Whether you have receding gums, discolored teeth, or a misaligned smile, the cosmetic dentists at Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry can prescribe a treatment plan that will produce a healthy and dramatic smile makeover. If you are currently struggling with any of the following conditions, cosmetic dentistry can help!
Treating Four Common Dental Issues
1. Receding Gums
Gum recession is a condition where the gum tissue is pushed back exposing more of the tooth or the tooth’s root, causing tooth sensitivity and pain. Gum recession becomes a health concern when the roots are exposed as it leaves teeth at risk for infection or tooth loss. A dentist will diagnose gum recession and can recommend treatment to slow its progression. Smileboston is one of the only practices in Greater Boston to offer the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a groundbreaking treatment for gum recession. Unlike traditional gum grafting, the Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive procedure with no cutting and little recovery time.
2. Yellow or Discolored Teeth
A whiter smile is one of the simplest ways to refresh your look. Professional in office or at home teeth whitening can remove surface stains to reveal a brighter smile. If the discoloration is not superficial and has developed because of age, certain diseases, various medications, or trauma, veneers can help to restore the shape and color of your teeth.
3. A Crooked or Misaligned Smile
There are a number of ways to repair crooked or misaligned teeth. Smileboston offers Invisalign which can straighten teeth without the use of traditional “wire and bracket” braces. Invisalign works through a series of invisible, removable and comfortable clear aligners that transform your teeth and smile. Depending upon severity, porcelain veneers may also be an option. Veneers are often an ideal solution for problems such as spaces between teeth, and chipped or broken teeth.
4. Missing or Damaged Teeth
The best way to replace missing or damaged teeth depend on a variety of factors, including their location and the health of any surrounding teeth. Possible options include dental implants, bridges and crowns, and dentures. Dental implants with a restoration (crown, bridge or denture) are the closest thing to your natural teeth and are designed to last a lifetime with proper and conscientious care. Dr. Spitz, the founder of Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, is one of a limited number of prosthodontists in the Boston area who have the necessary education and training to surgically place an implant and create a crown, bridge, or denture. Your entire treatment is completed in one office, with one doctor, start to finish.
