Damaged Teeth: Are My Teeth Too Far Gone to Benefit From Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many different things can affect the appearance and/or health of your teeth. Injury caused by trauma and tooth decay, for instance, are two of the most common causes of damaged teeth. Blunt force trauma to your mouth can weaken your teeth and make them more susceptible to chips, cracks, and other damage. Decay, on the other hand, eats into your teeth, which can cause similar problems.


Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Your teeth are an important part of your mouth. They allow for proper talking, chewing, and are responsible for the appearance of your smile. You may feel uncomfortable smiling and/or talking if your teeth are crooked. Misaligned teeth can lead to low self-esteem, which is why it is important to find the best solution for this problem. A dental professional can straighten your teeth in several ways. Two of the most popular ways are traditional braces and Invisalign®. Both of these treatments have their pros and cons. Choosing the right treatment, therefore, can be a bit tricky. No matter which teeth-straightening treatment you choose, the most important thing you need to do is to choose the right orthodontist. An experienced dental professional will carefully handle your treatment to ensure a long-lasting and beautiful smile. Both Invisalign and traditional braces are beneficial when it comes to straightening teeth.
