It’s not uncommon for adults to have cosmetic issues with their teeth. If your jaw is misaligned, your teeth might move or become chipped or worn down. If you had braces previously, your teeth can shift for a variety of reasons, causing gaps between teeth, overlapped teeth, and crooked teeth. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry in Durham, NC can help you feel good about your smile again!
Here are a few common dental problems and how cosmetic dentists fix them:
Chipped, gapped, or irregularly shaped teeth. Composite buildups (or bonding) are a versatile way to fix teeth that are not uniform or teeth that are damaged. Porcelain veneers - thin shell-like covers for teeth - are another option for a flawless-looking smile.
Discolored or stained teeth. Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to brighten your smile. If your teeth are too deeply stained to benefit from teeth whitening, porcelain veneers or dental crowns can help.
Damaged or treated teeth. If a tooth is damaged or needs a root canal, a dental crown can restore the tooth to function and look normal. This “cap” encases the tooth and closely matches other teeth in appearance.
Misaligned teeth. If you dream of having your teeth straightened, “invisible” braces and clear aligners such as Invisalign work well for busy adults.
