If there is a problem with the appearance of your teeth and you want to have a beautiful smile, you should see a skilled dentist to consider a specific method to fix it according to the problem of your teeth. In this article, we will explain the method of beautifying teeth by a dentist.

 Tooth bonding

In this method, a gum of the same color as the tooth is used and with a special light, this gum hardens and finally sticks to the tooth.

This method can repair broken teeth and deformed teeth.

In this method, the teeth can also be filled with silver amalgam (tooth filling material).

Tooth veneer

Veneers are thin and tooth-colored that cover the front surface of the teeth.

Veneers can cause discoloration or deformation of teeth, but this process is irreversible and cannot be removed.

Porcelain veneers are better than resin veneers and are resistant to stains, and the reflection of light in porcelain veneers is similar to the reflection of light in natural teeth.

Resin veneers are thinner and a small amount of toothpaste must be removed before placing it on the tooth.

It is better to ask your dentist about the type of veneer.

 Putting a crown on a tooth

The crown is like a tooth cap.

When the tooth is weak or severely damaged, a crown is used to improve the shape, size and appearance of the tooth.

Most crowns last 5 to 15 years.

Crowns are made of metal, porcelain attached to metal, gum or ceramic.

Before placing the crown, the tooth is slightly shaved and then the crown is attached to the tooth and completely covers the tooth.

 Dental enamel

Enameling is a quick and painless method.

This method is used to correct small defects such as rough teeth or overlapping teeth.

The result is obtained immediately and there is no need for anesthesia.

It is often done with enameling, bleaching, veneering and bonding.

 Dental orthodontics

Crooked teeth are corrected by orthodontics.

Orthodontic wires apply constant pressure to the teeth, gently aligning the teeth.

As the tooth moves with the pressure, so does the bone cavity of the tooth.

Types of braces (dental wire)

Metal braces are still available, but some people prefer the invisible type.

Bracket brackets (the part that attaches to the tooth) can be transparent, tooth-colored or colored. They can also be attached to the back of the tooth so that they are not visible.

Invisible braces are made of a series of clear plastic molds that gradually align the teeth.

Teeth whitening

Different types of teeth whitening include toothpastes, gels, adhesives, and whitening materials that the dentist applies to the teeth.

But bleach is not good for everyone. These bleaches can be good for healthy people with healthy teeth and gums.

 Composite filling

Dental fillings sometimes need to be replaced due to crushing. Many people replace silver amalgam with a tooth-colored composite.

Instead of silver amalgam, people use tooth-colored composite to beautify their teeth.

Some people are also concerned that silver amalgam contains mercury and is dangerous to health, so they use a tooth-colored composite.

In large composite fillings, filled teeth wear out sooner than silver amalgam. But in small fillings, the composite works well.

Gingival remodeling

This method is useful in cases where the teeth are very small or the gum line is uneven.

A small amount of gum tissue and, if necessary, extra bone tissue is removed to make the teeth more visible.

This procedure can be done for one or more teeth.

Gum transplant

The root of the tooth may be sensitive to cold or hot foods or liquids due to gum damage, and the teeth may have a long appearance.

Damage to the gums can cause tooth decay, tooth bone loss, and eventually tooth loss.

Soft tissue transplants, which move healthy gum tissue from one area of ​​the mouth to another, can stop gum destruction and tooth bone destruction.
