Few people are entirely happy with their teeth, but many spend months or years deliberating about whether or not they should do anything about it. Feeling nervous about getting treatment, worrying about the potential cost and believing that there is not a lot that can be done often stops people from visiting their dentist. At Smilecraft in Stevenage, we understand these concerns all too well and we’re here to put you at ease.
Regardless of the issue that is making you feel less confident about your smile, we can help. There are solutions for every possible area of concern that you can think of: including misshapen or misaligned teeth, teeth that appear very yellow or stained, and missing teeth to name just a few. Here, we explore the most common issues with the smile, and explore what can be done to fix them.
The teeth can become misshapen for a variety of reasons. Trauma to the tooth or teeth can cause chips that make them less aesthetically appealing than they should be. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is also a common condition that can cause the teeth to become worn down and misshapen.
Fortunately, as your dentist in Stevenage we can offer a range of options to correct the issue. Firstly, if bruxism is the cause, you may be recommended to wear a mouthguard during sleep to prevent further damage. When it comes to fixing the teeth, you could opt for veneers or dental implants. The treatment that we recommend will be tailored to you as an individual, so it’s best to make an appointment to chat about the options available.
Do you have teeth that are protruding or overcrowded? Orthodontic treatment could be the answer. Here, at Smilecraft, there is even the option of the 6 month smile. Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, you could have the straight teeth you’ve always wanted in a matter of months. This is an especially appealing treatment for adult patients who may feel a little apprehensive about getting their teeth straightened later in life.
Stained or discoloured teeth
Many people find that their teeth become more yellow over time, and staining is very common too. This is a particular issue with people who have a history of smoking and consuming things like coffee and red wine on a regular basis. The tooth whitening industry is growing by the day, and there is now a huge choice of products available. However, the only proven, effective and safe way to whiten the teeth and remove stains is by getting treatment from the dentist in Stevenage.
