The Most Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

Few of us are truly pleased with the way our teeth look. Even if you have good oral health, you can still be unsatisfied with the appearance of your smile. 

"I wish my teeth were whiter." 

"I don't like the gap between my front teeth." 

"My teeth are too small and they make my gums seem so big. Is there anything I can do about it?" 

These are some of the most common questions we get here at Alliance Family Dentistry. And, in most cases, the answer is that you can fix these issues with cosmetic dentistry

So, here are some of the most common cosmetic dental problems that we can help you solve. 

Chipped Teeth 

Chipped teeth will not only alter the appearance of your smile, but they can affect your oral health too. Because your tooth lost enamel and is not as protected as before, you may start experiencing sensitivity to hot and cold. Moreover, because your tooth is more exposed, it's also more prone to decay. 

Luckily, the Colorado Springs dentists at Alliance Family Dentistry can fix chipped teeth with the help of bonding or veneers. 

Cracked Teeth 

A crack in one of your teeth may not be that visible, but it can be very painful. Not to mention, the crack can serve as an entry point for bacteria and increase your chances of decay. 

Depending on the severity of the crack and the position of your tooth, the dentist will use veneers or a dental crown to fix it and restore your smile. 

Stained or Discolored Teeth 

While regular brushing can help maintain your teeth clean and healthy, constant exposure to staining foods and beverages like red sauces, berries, coffee, red wine, and so on can stain your teeth. Not to mention that with age, our teeth tend to change their color and become yellower. Teeth whitening treatments can remove these annoying stains and make your smile a few shades whiter. 

Uneven Teeth 

Several factors can lead to uneven teeth: genetics, an asymmetrical jaw, teeth grinding, and others. A cosmetic dentist will likely be able to fix this problem and help you achieve a straight and even smile. 

Gapped Teeth 

While gapped teeth don't usually represent a medical concern, patients often come to us asking to close the gap in their smile. Bonding, veneers, and Invisalign are all great ways to cover the gaps and give your smile a more even look. 

Gummy Smile 

Do more gums than teeth show when you smile? A gummy smile can make your teeth look smaller than they actually are and create an odd look. With cosmetic dentistry, you can address this issue and get a smile you are actually happy with.
