A beautiful smile can be quite contagious. It would be a great feeling when people come up to you and compliment your smile, which would, in turn, drive up your spirits and make you feel more confident of yourself. Individuals who have an aesthetically pleasing smile usually have a better time handling conversations, posing for pictures, going out on dates, giving presentations, and other social activities.
But, not everyone is lucky enough to have the smile of their dreams. Oral issues such as cavities, discoloration, malocclusion, gum diseases, missing teeth, an uneven smile, etc. can ruin the appearance of the smile. Cosmetic dentistry can be your best friend here, helping you get to the smile you’ve always wanted.
An uneven smile, or an asymmetric smile, is one that isn’t properly balanced. Teeth that are misaligned, varying in size and contour, grown disproportionately, overlapping, spaced too far apart or too close to each other, uneven gum line, etc. are some of the conditions that constitute an uneven smile. Some individuals suffer from more than one type of such issues, making their smile all the more displeasing.
What’s the solution?
Dentistry has advanced enormously over the past few years, allowing dentists to give their patients a smile that they’ve always dreamt of. The cosmetic dental solutions that we offer can restore your smile so well that anyone who takes a closer look at your teeth wouldn’t have the faintest idea about it. Here is how we do it:
Misalignment: Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that’s entirely dedicated to changing the alignment of crooked teeth. This helps us give you an even smile by rectifying the issues with the bite. Some of the popular orthodontic aligners are Invisalign, conventional metal braces, Damon braces, etc.
Misshapen teeth: Some teeth emerge naturally out of shape, and some go out of shape due to chipping (either external damage or weak tooth structure). They can lead to a lot of embarrassment when you smile and someone notices them. Such teeth are best restored using dental crowns or through a composite bonding technique.
Unevenly spaced teeth: Some teeth may appear too crowded, which is mostly due to a smaller dental arch or inadequate space for the teeth to emerge. On the contrary, the teeth may be spaced too far apart from each other, which is often due to a wider dental arch. Orthodontic solutions, crowns, veneers, and composite bonding can be used to rectify these issues.
Uneven gum line: Periodontitis and gingivitis are two of the most prominent gum diseases that massively upset the oral health of a person. They can result in receding gum line, decaying tissues, and the gums looking too red, swollen, and inflamed. Receding gums can be treated by extracting healthy tissues from a different part of the mouth and grafting them to the infected region. The decaying tissues can be gotten rid of using laser therapy, thereby giving you a better smile.
