Red wine and smiles don't have to be mutually exclusive. Healthy smiles are
sometimes altered by the appearance of crooked, missing, or stained teeth-
thanks to our friend Mr. Wine. Not a good first impression and it doesn’t help
your self esteem either. In recent years cosmetic dentistry has become
extremely popular as it rectifies deformities, whitens our teeth and allows us
to smile with confidence.

Smoking, drinking tea and coffee, and even the natural aging process can
contribute to our teeth becoming borne with stains. Teeth whitening
techniques can bring the white glow back to your teeth, and give you the
confidence to smile again. Many different procedures are now available to
cover cracked or chipped teeth, and teeth that have moved slightly to one
side. These can be covered with porcelain veneers that are very strong and
will remain luminescent.

Metal braces are normally associated with straightening existing teeth, but
Invisalign has become a more popular method of aligning teeth in adults,
as they’re completely transparent and as a result not easily seen. They tend
to be more comfortable than metal braces and cause less stress in the
mouth and on the gums. Another advantage is that they can be removed for
teeth cleaning and while eating.

Dental braces are also used to align and straighten teeth, and perform the
task of correcting over and under bites as well as crooked teeth or any other
faults. Mainly used on children, the braces move the teeth by means of
pressure on the teeth. They have a constant pressure which over time
moves the teeth into the desired position. Adjustments are made every three
to four weeks, and as the teeth move new bone grows to support them in
their new position.

Dental implants are performed by cosmetic dentists to replace lost teeth.
This procedure consists of placing a titanium bar into the jawbone upon
which replacement teeth can be attached. This bar takes the place of the
tooth’s original root, and once inserted will eventually fuse with the tissue
and become a permanent fixture. This does of course mean undergoing
minor surgery, and you will either be given a local or general anesthetic
depending upon the amount of surgery to be undertaken.

The cost of cosmetic dentistry can be pricy, so it’s worth shopping around to
compare prices. Insurance may cover the procedure, and some cosmetic dentists can
recommend a payment plan to help. Don’t let your teeth let you down because a
beautiful smile is always within reach.

 Toluca Lake dentist Arthur W. Weiss is a general, cosmetic, and implants dentist and fellow
