Your smile is an integral part of your appearance, but sometimes it doesn’t look or function the way you’d like it to. If you have multiple issues, such as teeth that are stained and gapped, or one or more missing teeth, it might be especially discouraging.
With a visit to your cosmetic dentist in Charlotte, Dr. Justin Harlow, you can find out about procedures that can give you a smile that looks and functions optimally.
Here are just a few of the ways a smile makeover can improve the form and function of your smile—and restore your self-confidence.
It Can Eliminate Gaps Between Your Teeth
Many people have gaps between their front teeth, but gaps can occur anywhere in the mouth. One way to eliminate gaps is with orthodontics. But if you are an adult, you might not be thrilled with the idea of undergoing such treatment. Gaps can also be fixed with dental bonding or veneers. Both of these can be completed in just one or two visits to the dentist.
It Can Fix Broken, Chipped, or Missing Teeth
If you accidentally chip your tooth, you are well aware that it will not grow back. The good news is that you can replace or fix a broken or chipped tooth with dental bonding, a porcelain veneer, or a dental crown.
If you have one or more missing teeth, you can talk to Dr. Harlow to find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Not only will replacing your missing tooth give you back the ability to chew comfortably, but it will also protect your oral health because it will keep your healthy teeth from shifting.
You don’t have to live with a smile you don’t love to show the world. Call Harlow Dental in Charlotte to find out more about what cosmetic dentist Dr. Harlow can do to improve your smile.
