What’s even better than buying a brand new car? For many people it is the joy of restoring a vintage classic. The same is true for houses, furniture, instruments and more. Few things are as beautiful or meaningful as something lovingly restored. And that is certainly the case for your smile, as well. After a cavity, crack or other dental problem, you probably don’t want a brand new, unnatural-looking smile. You want your old smile back again! And that is precisely why restorative dentistry exists. Not only can a dentist help improve your oral health after dental issues, or damage, but he or she can also help make it as beautiful as it was before the problems developed. That way you can get back to smiling confidently, and nothing feels better than that!
What Ways Can Your Smile Be Restored?
Most people know that dental fillings and dental crowns can be used to help protect fragile teeth, after a cavity, root canal therapy, or even trauma suffered during a car wreck, sports injury, or other accident. But many people don’t realize that modern dentistry means you don’t have to sacrifice your smile’s beauty in order to protect its health.
In fact, most dentists now frequently recommend more seamless alternatives to traditional metal dentistry, options which are still functional, but also far more natural-looking and, therefore, more esthetically pleasing.
So don’t put off restorative treatment for fear it will detract from your natural smile, when in many cases, it can actually help make it look new again!
