Written by Dr. McConnell on Apr 2, 2013

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile it can make you feel self-conscious and awkward in social situations. But you may be surprised to learn that certain dental issues that seem to be cosmetic in nature can also impact your overall health and well being.

Teeth that are cracked, decayed, missing, or incorrectly aligned not only mar your appearance and make you self-conscious, but they can also lead to a variety of other problems including periodontal disease, jaw pain, and difficulty with chewing. Cosmetic dentistry performed at the Novato, CA Dentist office can correct these issues, restoring your oral health and beautiful smile.

Cosmetic dentistry offers several solutions for perfecting your smile:

  • Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth but also offer additional support against shifting teeth and jaw collapse.
  • Porcelain Crowns offer a strong, aesthetically pleasing solution for patients with cracked or chipped teeth.
  • Tooth-colored fillings prevent further decay while appearing natural, unlike amalgam fillings.
  • Invisalign clear aligners correct misaligned teeth that can lead to other serious concerns like periodontal disease.
