Unless you’re a teeth model or working for a tooth paste commercial, you’re probably not 100% comfortable with your smile. Many Americans aren’t comfortable showing their teeth when they smile. Still others don’t pose for pictures, and wouldn’t dream of taking a selfie. It may be yellowed teeth, visible cavities, broken or damaged teeth, or even visible fillings that make you uncomfortable with your smile. Whatever the issue, it is possible to fix when you choose a dentist that specializes in cosmetic dentistry.
When You Don’t Have Perfect Teeth
A large percentage of Americans are addicted to sugary sweets and drinks that are damaging to the teeth as well as live sedentary lives with a host of health problems to boot. Those same Americans have neglected dental visits and preventative care over several years, only seeking dental care because of pain or sudden dental insurance coverage.
Are you one of them?
Perhaps you suddenly have dental insurance and would like to fix those things you have long-disliked about your smile. It doesn’t have to be your tooth health either. You can have perfectly healthy teeth, and you may not think they’re perfect.
You should have the smile of your dreams, proudly posing for family portraits and selfies alike.
Cosmetic Dentistry Explained
At Rivas Dental Care we take pride in our cosmetic dentistry services, offering the best in the Miami community for over 20 years.
Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges
When you choose porcelain crowns and bridges we can match the color of the new materials to your existing teeth, restoring your smile completely!
Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
These durable fillings are made of porcelain and are matched with the color of the existing teeth, allowing us to treat cavities while keeping your smile intact.
This ultra-thin porcelain shell covers the existing teeth, correcting gapped, discolored, stained, chipped, cracked, worn, or crooked teeth. They are stain-resistant and low maintenance. You care for them the same as natural teeth—brushing and flossing regularly.
In addition to porcelain, we can use composite fillings, a combination of plastic and glass, that is matched to the tooth and used to fill and correct damaged teeth. It is polished in order to prevent staining and wear.
Implants are a popular choice over dentures because they are permanent, comfortable, and sturdy, allowing easier speech and eating habits. Implants are difficult to stain and require little maintenance other than good oral hygiene habits.
Your health, habits, certain medications, even certain foods and drinks can discolor your teeth over time. You can reach for the latest popular teeth whitening kit from the drug store, but these items have risks often overlooked, including weakening the enamel. Instead, ask your dentist about in-office teeth whitening treatments.
Your best smile is possible when you choose cosmetic dentistry as part of your care plan. These aren’t costly elective procedures. Rivas Dental Care offers cosmetic procedures as restorative and preventative care, and once you have the smile of your dreams, we recommend continued care and maintenance for your best smile.
