Genuine smiles have been linked to positive moods and better sleeping patterns, yet the average person only smiles seven times a day. Cheery people may smile about 11 times a day. Those are relatively small numbers, especially since smiling is quite helpful for your overall health. The sad truth is that some people do not smile often because they are suffering from a dental issue.
Dental Issues That may Prevent Smiling
The cosmetic dentistry experts at Dr Dan Casel’s office know some of the most common oral problems affecting people like the following:
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
There are many reasons why these issues come about. Cracked or chipped teeth might be caused by tooth-grinding or an accident.
Crooked or misaligned teeth might have occurred through a genetic predisposition or simply because you sucked your thumb when you were a kid.
Some of these issues can prevent people from smiling, which is a shame and something that Dr. Casel’s Premier Dentistry of Jupiter can help you with.
How Jupiter Cosmetic Dentistry can Help
There is a lot a Jupiter cosmetic dentist can do to rectify the problem you are having. For example, those who have structural damage such as a crack or other types of damage (that can diminish your chewing ability) may be able to fix their issue with an onlay or an inlay solution.
There was a time when the only option one had was metal amalgam. This metal material is very visible, which makes some people a little self-conscious about their smile. This might force an inhibited smile, which is not as genuine. Well, you do not have to worry about that with inlays or onlays as they are made from porcelain or composite resin. Both materials look like the natural color of your teeth.
Those who have a serious crack that causes pain when chewing or drinking may need to consider dental crowns at our Jupiter office.
Veneers in Jupiter
Hairline cracks, on the other hand, may not require something as time consuming as a crown. These smaller issues could be taken care of by veneers in Jupiter FL. Veneers are wafer-thin coverings of super-strong porcelain that convincingly substitutes for natural tooth enamel. When bonded to your teeth, veneers can create a natural-looking, beautiful new surface.. These coverings can help hide hairline cracks, extreme discoloration, and even some cases of malformed teeth. The procedure is minimally invasive and is usually taken care of with a few visits.
People who do not smile due to a missing tooth have other solutions, too. You do not have to hide your smile any longer because Dr. Casel’s team offers dentures or dental implants. Dentures are relatively non-invasive as they are usually attached to healthy teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, are fixed solutions that require the surgical implantation of a titanium post into the jawbone to secure the implant in place.
Remember that Premier Dentistry of Jupiter believes that nothing should stop you from reaping the benefits of smiling, even if you choose to smile only seven times a day.
