Creating an Ideal Smile

 In Cosmetic Dentistry

Worried about your less-than-perfect smile?

It’s a valid and urgent concern – bad teeth can negatively affect not just how you look, but also how you feel. It can damage your self-esteem, limit your social, career and business opportunities, or undermine your best efforts to achieve your goals.  

Creating an ideal smile is now easier than ever

Trusted Sioux City dentist Dr. Burhoop gives the following rundown of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you get the best smile of your life:

1) Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the fastest way to give your smile a dramatic makeover. Patients often sign up for this procedure to remove surface tooth stains, discoloration and pigmentation caused by certain medicines, food and drinks, as well as lifestyle habits (e.g., poor oral hygiene or smoking). Others request it just to give their teeth a lighter, brighter appearance. The treatment can be done in-clinic, or through the use of at-home whitening kits.  

2) Invisalign

Invisalign are clear aligners used for straightening crooked, misaligned or overlapping teeth. Virtually invisible, easily removable and made of clear and flexible material. Additionally, Invisalign is considered the more comfortable and more convenient alternative to traditional metal braces. Moreover, it can deliver significant results 50 percent faster than the average treatment time for metal braces.

3) Veneers

Porcelain veneers function like a thin mask or a shield for the teeth. They are used to cover up various imperfections. This includes chipped teeth, crooked teeth, cracked tooth, gaps in between teeth, worn down teeth, and discoloration that whitening treatment can’t fix, among others. Therefore, the super-thin veneer is designed to mimic the look, texture and coloring of your natural teeth. Preferred for their fast results, veneers are glued to the surface of your existing teeth, making them instantly flawless.      

4) Dental implants

Implants serve as a replacement for missing teeth. As the name suggests, dental implants are implanted or screwed on the spot on the gum where the original tooth used to stand. While the procedure is complex and labor- and time-intensive, implants are long-lasting, with some remaining in good condition after more than 10 years of use and proper maintenance.  

The first step to achieving your ideal smile is to seek the advice of a highly competent and experienced dentist. Set up an appointment for a checkup and assessment, so you and Dr. Burhoop can then work out a treatment plan to address the specific issues you may have.
