Four Ways How to Improve the Way Your Teeth Look

You find yourself avoiding mirrors lately. The problem is your teeth. They don’t look as nice as in the past. The good news is that there are all sorts of procedures that will improve their appearance. Here are some suggestions on how to make your teeth look better than they have in years.

Undergo Whitening Treatments

Perhaps the main problem is the color of your teeth. Instead of a healthy white, they have a definite yellow hue. Even using a whitening toothpaste doesn’t seem to make much difference.

Instead of resigning yourself to yellow teeth for the rest of your life, have whitening treatments under the care of a dental professional. There are options for laser treatments in the office as well as home kits that your dentist supplies. Before you know it, your teeth will be white again instead of yellow.

Have Crooked Teeth Straightened

A couple of teeth are out of line with the rest. While many people wouldn’t notice, you see those crooked teeth every time you brush. Since they do bother you, it’s time to do something about them.

A dentist can determine the best way to proceed. Perhaps wearing a retainer or some type of brace will correct the problem. Remember there are solutions that are virtually invisible. In the best-case scenario, the crooked teeth will be straight in no more than a year.

Fill in the Gaps

If you have lost a tooth or happen to have tiny gaps in between several teeth, there is a quick and easy solution. Choosing to employ a combination of crowns and bridges will close the gaps and restore your smile. The bridge fills in the space left vacant by the missing tooth. The crowns connect the false tooth to the real ones on each side. For tiny gaps between teeth, veneers will work close them and keep the teeth in proportion.

Take Care of Chips and Cracks

Wear and tear on the teeth do more than wreck your smile. They also increase the odds of developing a number of other dental ailments. If you have teeth that are cracked or chipped, veeners will protect the teeth and prevent more cracking. Crowns are a wonderful way to repair chipped teeth and prevent cavities and other problems in the years to come.

Crowns are also helpful for teeth that are worn down due to grinding. Once the crowns are in place, your dentist will likely provide a mouth guard that you can wear at night. The guard will ensure that you do not grind your teeth while asleep.

No matter what sort of problem is present, you can trust the team at Smile-by-design.ca in North York to come up with viable solutions. Call today and schedule an appointment. After a professional examines your teeth, it will be easy to settle on the right type of restorative procedures and ensure you have teeth that look their best.

We Believe in Your Smile!

Dear Smile Centre Family,

The recent Ontario government announcement declaring a state of emergency and issuing of a new stay-at-home order has caused some uncertainty. We wanted to let you know that all of our Smile Centre locations are still OPEN.

As dental professionals we have been classified as an essential part of healthcare and will continue to provide both preventive, restorative, and emergency treatment. We will not be providing some elective services such as teeth whitening at this time.

We are grateful to remain open as we know how important it is to stay on top of dental issues before they become major problems. Good oral health is directly related to good overall health. Please know that we are doing everything we can to ensure that we go above and beyond all of the recommended safety protocols to keep you, your loved ones, and our team healthy and safe. That is, and always will be our highest priority. Our strict protocols include: Advanced pre screening, using Hepa air filters, wearing advanced PPE, and limiting the number of people in the office by making virtual consultations available. Our offices have always prided ourselves on being experts when it comes to asepsis and sterilizations protocols and it should be noted that there has been no evidence of COVID spread related to dental offices at this time.

Should you have any questions, or wish to postpone or delay any upcoming appointments, please feel free to reach out. We completely understand that not everyone is comfortable receiving dental treatment at this time and we will do our best to accommodate all of your needs while making sure that you feel safe.

Continuing to follow our enhanced safety guidelines, that we have had in place since June, will help to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for everyone.  Underneath these layers of extra protection, rest assured that we are still the same, caring, attentive providers we have always been!

Thank You for your trust during these uncertain times,

Your Smile Centre
