Are you looking for easy ways to improve your smile? One-third of American adults are unhappy with how their smile is currently. If you fall within this category, you may be on the lookout for ways to put your best face forward. The good news is that there are plenty of options, and chances are that you will find the perfect fit for you and your smile wants and needs. Let’s take a look at some easy ways to improve your smile, and how Castle Valley Dental can help! 

Teeth Whitening

One of the most common complaints people have about their teeth is that they are not as white as they would like them to be. Luckily, this is an extremely easy fix! While we do not typically recommend at-home whitening treatments (they can be harsh and abrasive and end up damaging your teeth!), there are in-office options that can help you achieve the outcome you desire. If you are not wanting to do an in-office treatment, we still recommend chatting with your dentist (us!) to ensure that you are getting the right products to get your teeth where you would like them to be! 

Crowns & Veneers

If you have teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or otherwise disfigured, and you do not want or need to get them taken out, a good option to cover them could be crowns or veneers. While these options essentially accomplish the same outcome, they go about it in different ways. Crowns serve as covers for existing teeth, improving the appearance and strengthening what is already there. Veneers serve as shells that cover the front side of your teeth, requiring a small amount of enamel to be removed so they sit flush with the rest of your teeth and look as natural as possible. If you are not sure which option would be best for you, we encourage you to set up a consultation today! 

Braces

If your teeth are not sitting quite as straight as you would like them to, braces are always an option. Depending on what your wants and needs are, you can go with typical wireframe braces or you can go with removable aligners that have been all the craze in the past decade. When used improperly, these aligners can lead to further damage of the teeth, so regardless of which option you want to move forward with, we recommend consulting with a dentist first. 

Implants & Dentures

If you have missing teeth, you may recognize that your confidence in your smile has diminished. If this is the case, there are plenty of options that you can pursue to replace those teeth that are missing! Implants are a permanent solution that are surgically screwed into the jaw, filling in the gap. If a permanent implant doesn’t sound like what you are looking for, there are also many options for removable or temporary dentures, such as partial or full sets. Set up a consultation with your dentist if you are interested in pursuing any of these options, so you can move forward with the best fit for you.
