SCOTTS VALLEY, SANTA CRUZ, CA
Your smiles can dramatically impact how you feel and how you look. For some, their smile radiates self-confidence, but a smile can be an element of embarrassment. Since your smile is one of the first things others notice, it can destroy self-confidence when it’s less than perfect and make social situations difficult to navigate. Therefore, our Scotts Valley cosmetic dentists at Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry share on the blog today ways to improve your self-image with cosmetic dentistry so that you can feel confident when you smile.
Crooked or Gapped Teeth
Anxiety is a familiar feeling among those who have crooked or gapped teeth. Social situations can exasperate feelings of fear and embarrassment. Our Los Gatos cosmetic dentists can correct or hide common dental aesthetic issues using veneers. As a result, you may feel a confidence surge and be more comfortable when taking pictures, at job interviews, meeting new people, or on a first date.
Dental veneers are porcelain coverings designed to fit directly over the front surface of each tooth. The porcelain color is chosen in a shade that blends with your surrounding natural teeth or can be chosen in a bright white color if you want a permanently white smile. Veneers are crafted to look incredibly natural but perfect.
Brightening Discolored Teeth
Diligent oral hygiene promotes healthy teeth and gums while removing most surface stains. However, everyday food and beverage consumption can cause tooth discoloration due to dark pigments and food dyes. Our Santa Cruz teeth whitening dentists explain that a dramatic improvement in your tooth discoloration can occur during a single appointment with our professional teeth whitening options. Go ahead and forgo the store-bought whitening strips and treatments. Most users won’t experience dramatic results, and those products are more likely to cause tooth sensitivity.
Chipped, Cracked, or Broken Teeth
Tooth enamel is the strongest element in the human body. However, it is not indestructible. Therefore, an accident or injury can cause aesthetic deficiencies that could potentially lead to an oral health hazard. Our Scotts Valley dentists who repair chipped teeth explain that there are multiple methods for restoring your tooth’s integrity. For example, we can fully restore functionality and your smile aesthetics using dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or a dental crown, depending on the severity of the break and your long-term smile goals.
Replace Missing Teeth
Concealing a missing tooth in the front of your smile can be impossible. Not only can it be embarrassing to have a noticeable gap in your smile, but it could cause complications when chewing or speaking. Fortunately, our Santa Cruz dentists who offer dental implants can restore your smile using dental implants. Even though several tooth replacement options exist, dental implants are the most secure and permanent solution.
Reverse Aging Signs
They say that age is “just a number,” but your outward appearance might convey that you’re older than your actual age. Most people think of sagging skin, wrinkles, and gray hair as signs of getting older, but your smile could make you look older even if the rest of your body says that you’re not. For example, when your teeth suffer from discoloration, damage, or are missing, it can translate into an older appearance. Our cosmetic dentists in Los Gatos can use state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry to remove years from your smile. The best way to know which cosmetic dental treatments are right for you is to schedule a consultation to explore your options.
