The New Year is here, and you shouldn’t live one more day with a smile that is not beautiful and healthy. While most people think that cosmetic procedures are extra procedures that are only done to improve the superficial look of your smile. “That in fact, is not the truth,“ says Dr. Judy Strutz. “Several cosmetic procedures can actually improve gum and jaw health as well as improve opportunities.”
When you have been missing teeth, your other teeth can shift into the position of the missing teeth, causing your bite to be off. When your bite is off, it can cause jaw pain, a cracked tooth, and long-term damage. Fixing missing teeth, improves the overall look of your smile and the alignment, allowing you to look years younger.
Black or discolored teeth are many times caused from decay that may be running rampant through your mouth. While we all have bacteria in our mouth, when the teeth turn color, they are no longer healthy. Decay that is not taken care of can turn into problems with lost teeth, and extreme pain.
