Improving Your Smile

Smile Checklist

Look in the mirror.

  • Do you like the way your teeth look?
  • Do you dislike the color of any of your teeth?
  • Are there spaces between your teeth?
  • Do you have any chips or cracks on your teeth?
  • Are you missing any teeth?
  • Do you have any crooked teeth?
  • Do you feel your teeth are too long or too short?
  • Are you pleased with the shapes and position of your teeth?

If your answers show that you might want a change in your smile, talk to your dentist about Improving Your Smile.

A great smile can be the most attractive feature of your face. A smile helps you express health, success, youth and sincerity. It is a great asset in your personal, business and social contacts. So it’s important that you are happy with how your smile looks. But if you are like many people, you may not be.

Your dentist has many different techniques to shape, sculpt, and make your smile more beautiful. With a few simple steps, you can have a smile you feel great about. And treatment may be more affordable than you think.

Here are some popular treatment options:

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Your dentist can use natural-colored materials to restore teeth that have cavities. Options include composite materials, such as resin, as well as lab-made porcelain inlays, onlays and crowns.

Tooth Whitening

Teeth become stained for many reasons – drinking coffee, tea or wine; smoking; and even aging can discolor teeth. Tooth whitening is a process that makes discolored teeth whiter. The bleach used for in-office (chairside) whitening is stronger than the bleach found in at-home whitening kits. Keep in mind that not everyone’s teeth can become movie-star white. Your dentist can recommend the whitening treatment that is right for you.

Veneers

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded, or cemented, to the front of your teeth. They are custom-made of ceramic or composite resin, and look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to fill spaces between teeth and to cover teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or a bit crooked.

Braces

Braces can help correct crowded or crooked teeth or an uneven bite. Braces have become much smaller and less noticeable over the years. Brackets, the part of the braces that attach to each tooth, can sometimes be attached to the back of the tooth to make them less noticeable. Some brackets are clear or tooth colored—which help braces blend in.
In some cases, treatment may be done without using braces at all. A series of clear, removable aligners are used to move your teeth over time. These aligners are more discreet than traditional braces.

Enamel Shaping

Your dentist can “reshape” your teeth by contouring tooth enamel, the outer layer of the tooth. When teeth are a little crowded or uneven, or when teeth appear too long, your dentist can use enamel shaping to improve how the teeth look.

Crowns

If a tooth needs more a dramatic change than veneers or enamel shaping can provide, crowns are an option. The outer part of the tooth is removed and a crown is placed over it. The crown can be made to fit in with your other teeth. It’s like a fresh start for your tooth.

A crown is a cover or “cap” your dentist can put over a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.  

Reasons you may need a crown:

• You have a cavity that is too large for a filling

• You have a tooth that is cracked, worn down, or otherwise weakened

• You have had root canal treatment — the crown will protect the restored tooth

• You want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile

 

What is your crown made from?

Crowns are made from several types of materials. Metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin may be used. When a crown is made, the material often is colored to blend in with your natural teeth.

Your dentist wants your crown to look natural and fit comfortably in your mouth. To decide which material to use for your crown, your dentist will consider many factors, such as:

  • the tooth’s location and function
  • the position of the gum tissue
  • your preference
  • the amount of tooth that shows when you smile
  • the color or shade of the tooth

Here are guidelines on how to handle common oral discomforts and injuries, and when these require emergency dental care or services:

  • Toothache: See your emergency dentist as soon as you feel discomfort or pain.
  • Broken, chipped or cracked tooth: Rinse your mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to your face. Go to the dentist right away. If the tooth was broken or chipped, bring the tooth fragment wrapped in wet gauze or a wet towel.
  • Loosened or knocked-out tooth: If your tooth becomes loose due to trauma, call your dentist. For a knocked out tooth, gently insert the lost tooth back in its socket if possible, holding the tooth by the crown using a clean washcloth. If the tooth is dirty, first rinse the root, but do not scrub it or remove any attached tissues. If reinsertion is not possible, hold the tooth under the tongue and go to the dentist immediately.
  • Broken Jaw: Apply ice or a cold compress to the face. Go to your dentist or an emergency center immediately.
  • Bitten Tongue or Lip: Clean the area with a wet cloth and place a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. If the bleeding persists or if it is excessive, go to your dentist or an emergency center.

Most people need at least one tooth filling in their lifetime. Dental filling procedures are most commonly used to treat cavities, but they’re also used to repair cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that have been worn down over time.

Most dental filling procedures feature the following: 

  • Topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment
  • Decay removal from the affected teeth
  • Tooth restoration using a composite or amalgam filling
  • Bite check to make sure your teeth align comfortably

The team at your Aspen Dental practice will ensure you are comfortable before, during, and after your procedure, and will happily to answer any questions you may have. In addition, here are useful tips for overcoming dental anxiety

Some dental procedures require a very specific set of dental skills and fall into a branch of dentistry called oral surgery. Oral surgery treats a wide range of diseases and conditions, including:


Your comfort comes first
Your Aspen Dental practice will work to ensure your comfort during your oral surgery procedure, including the use of numbing agents. Sedation may also be available.

Talk with your oral surgeon about pain management options for your upcoming oral surgery. As with any dental procedure, tell your dentist or oral surgeon if you are feeling any pain during your procedure so it can be relieved.

Your gum disease treatment will depend on several factors, including your personal health history and the stage of your gum disease. This page covers:

  • Professional Cleaning
  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Periodontal Surgery
  • Keeping your teeth and gums healthy after treatment

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Years ago, diseased or injured teeth were usually pulled. But today, a tooth can often be saved through root canal therapy.

Endodontics (en-do-DON-tics) is the branch of dentistry that specializes in treating diseases or injuries to the dental pulp. Endodontists are dentists that specialize in treating diseases of, or injuries to, dental pulp. Your dentist may refer you to an endodontist to perform your root canal procedure.

Treatment is needed for infected or inflamed pulp

The pulp is soft tissue inside the tooth that contains blood vessels and nerves. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, treatment is needed.

Pulp infection and inflammation most often occur if you have:

  • a cracked or chipped tooth
  • a deep cavity or filling
  • other serious injury to the tooth

All of these can allow bacteria to enter the pulp and cause infection and/or inflammation.

Problems from infected or inflamed pulp

Natural teeth are ideal for biting, chewing and maintaining mouth and jawbone structure, which is why a dentist’s first priority is to help restore, save and repair your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth extraction is unavoidable.

The dentist at your Aspen Dental practice will make sure you’re comfortable before, during, and after your extraction procedure. This includes walking you through every step of the tooth extraction, as well as the use of local anesthetics.

Feeling uneasy about your tooth extraction? Be sure to talk to your dentist about how you’re feeling so that they can help. In addition, here are helpful tips on overcoming dental anxiety.
