Why Imperfection Is The Latest Trend In Dentistry
Natural teeth are rarely perfect and perfect teeth are rarely natural. Dentists now vouch for a healthy, natural smile. The aim is to keep your teeth healthy and opt for cosmetic procedures, which enhance your current set of teeth.
Getting unrealistic treatments done may not always be the right choice and could also deteriorate your oral health. We believe that we must bring out a natural healthy smile, which matches your present appearance. Your personality and uniqueness lie in your unique set of teeth, and you should be able to adorn it with pride.
Perfection is not always about symmetry and uniformity but is instead about keeping your teeth healthy and opting for treatments that look natural.
Oral health is the most important factor. A good dental routine keeps your teeth strong and healthy. The actual color of our enamel is light grey or yellow, and in some cases whitening your teeth beyond a certain point is unappealing, as it looks unrealistic.
Another factor we dentists focus on is facial harmony. Any procedure done should complement the rest of your face. Teeth whitening procedures should firstly focus on the skin tone before carrying out the treatment; not all shades of white suit all skin tones.
Cosmetic or orthodontic procedures are not necessarily done according to popular demand, as some procedures can cause more harm than good. Firstly, we will have to inspect teeth color, alignment and shape of teeth. Altering the teeth structure can also change the shape of your face; hence this decision has to be made by carefully considering all factors.
The primary concern is oral health, getting a pleasant smile is easy as long as you follow a rigid oral hygiene routine.
Some of the tips to get a healthy smile are:
Oral hygiene: Having a good oral hygiene routine will prevent your teeth from several dental diseases like, tooth decay, cavities and gum diseases. The expert opinion is to brush, floss and use mouthwash twice a day. While brushing your teeth, time yourself just to make sure that you are brushing for two whole minutes.
Dental check-ups: Regular visits to a dental clinic will ensure that your dental diseases are prevented or otherwise treated immediately. Prophylactic cleanings and check-ups will help maintain your teeth and eliminate pain and bad breath.
Teeth whitening: Your teeth are likely to stain with age. Constant exposure to different food and beverages can cause your teeth to stain and become dark yellow. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure through which we can remove all the stubborn stains on your teeth. It is not advisable to opt for at-home teeth whitening as this can impact your oral health negatively. Specialists are aware of what chemicals will do harm and what chemicals will not harm your teeth, thereby, they will provide the best treatment without causing any harm.
Prophylactic cleanings and check-ups will help maintain your teeth and eliminate pain and bad breath.
Correcting misalignment: An orthodontic specialist is best equipped to correct crooked, misaligned teeth. Some of the common braces that are used to correct misalignments include metal, ceramic and invisible braces. Others suffering from mild misalignments can also opt for restorative procedures, such as veneers and composite bonding.
We are always concerned about what is the best option for your dental health. The aim is to embrace your natural teeth, by correcting and beautifying just enough to complement your distinctive appearance.
