Whilst there are lots of reasons why anyone might visit their dentist, if you have an issue that in particular is affecting your smile, then that is certainly the medical professional you want to go and see. Long gone are the days where dentists were seen as the person who drilled your teeth and made you sloosh your mouth out with that pink liquid.
Today, dentists still drill teeth (Sorry, that is not likely to change), but they can also offer a range of services that go beyond just filling in cavities. They can literally change the architecture of someone’s mouth by repairing, reshaping, and replacing damaged, stained, or missing teeth.
So if your smile is not what it once was, or you have never been happy with your smile and want to upgrade it, then here are 4 ways your dentist can help you to achieve the smile you want.
One of the biggest reasons that someone’s smile is not what it was is due to the discolouration of their teeth. Discolouration can be caused by many things, but the main ones tend to be ageing, smoking and poor oral hygiene in terms of not brushing teeth often enough.
The point is that often someone might have perfectly healthy teeth and gums, but no matter how healthy teeth are, they can still discolour. The answer, apart from obviously brushing them more often, is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can be done at home using customised kits, which are created from moulds of your teeth.
