Common Smile Flaws

Posted on: April 16, 2018

It is widely agreed that a beautiful smile makes a person attractive.  Many argue a lovely smile is the most endearing trait of those they are drawn to.  Unfortunately, it is quite easy for a gorgeous smile to transform into an unimpressive smile or even an ugly smile.  Here is a look at some of the top smile flaws and how they can be corrected by an experienced dentist.

Common Smile Flaws

An oral health issue, trip and fall, physical contact during sports and other issues can lead to a flawed smile.  Dentists agree the top smile flaws are:

  • Discolored teeth

  • Stained teeth

  • Crowded teeth

  • Crooked teeth

  • Gaps between teeth

At one point or another, just about everyone will have to deal with one of these aesthetic issues.  Thankfully, each of these smile flaws can be corrected by your dentist. So do not assume your stained, crooked or otherwise flawed teeth are a permanent problem.  These issues are only temporary if you are willing to meet with your dentist for a treatment or procedure.

Correct Misshapen or Stained Teeth With Dental Veneers

Dental veneers remedy cosmetic dental issues.  Plenty of patients choose veneers instead of bonding as veneers stand the test of time.  Veneers are also less likely to change as time progresses. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that dentists apply to the front of compromised teeth.  Have the dentist add porcelain veneers to your flawed teeth and it will beautify them in several ways.

If you are self-conscious about the look of your discolored, stained or misshapen teeth, veneers will beautify them.  This is the perfect solution for crooked, chipped, improperly spaced or oddly shaped teeth.

Dental Bonding for Smile Flaws

As noted above, dental bonding is one of several options to improve the look of flawed teeth.  Bonding improves the aesthetic of cracked, broken, stained or chipped teeth. Bonding can also fill cavities.

Restore the Normal Shape and Look of Your Teeth With Crowns

Dental crowns have the potential to save your smile. Dentists place crowns over the entire tooth. They restore the tooth's regular shape and aesthetic. Once your crowns are in place, you will no longer be hesitant to smile, eat or laugh in public. Your teeth will look completely normal. After applying the crowns, no one will have any idea about any flaws in your smile.

Fix Your Crooked and/or Crowded Teeth With Invisalign®

If you have crooked or crowded teeth, there is no reason to feel bad. Crooked teeth is a common smile flaw that plagues millions of people. Invisalign® corrects such teeth without forcing you to wear those unsightly traditional metal braces. This dental technique makes use of multiple customized aligners that shift misaligned teeth into the proper position to create a stunning smile.

This approach to improving poorly-spaced teeth and crooked teeth is revered by dentists and patients.  Give Invisalign® a try and you will find your flawed smile returns to normal within about a year's time or less.  The best part is Invisalign is translucent so no one will be able to tell you are using aligners.
