Your smile is so much more than just teeth

Aristotle once famously said, “The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” Comprised of your gums, lips, teeth and surrounding bone structure, your smile is significantly more than just another part of your body.

Facial expressions are an essential means of communication. Your smile can welcome people, put them at ease and display your confidence. It is capable of bridging cultures, language barriers, and generation gaps.

What Constitutes a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a general term for various cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve one’s smile. Some examples of cosmetic procedures are:

  • Teeth Whitening is one of the most common ways to quickly, comfortably and safely enhance your smile.
  • Dental Veneers can greatly improve a smile. Made from porcelain, they are very thin facings that are fastened to your teeth. They can be used to whiten teeth, fix chips, close gaps and cover any breaks in an easy and affordable manner.
  • Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth or tooth roots. They help in the preservation and restoration of bone in the jaw, which also helps to preserve and restore the shape of your face.
  • Dental Crowns offer health, strength and beauty to teeth that have been broken, stained or decayed.
  • Dental Bridges assist in filling the gaps that have been left by one or more missing teeth.
  • Orthotics are used for the purpose of straightening crooked teeth, providing a straight, gorgeous smile.

To understand which cosmetic procedure will be effective for you, an inspection from Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA will be needed. He will thoroughly inspect your jaws, teeth and facial structure, and from there can recommend the treatments best suited for giving you the smile that you have always desired.

Why a better smile can have a positive effect in your life

A straight, pearly smile helps convey health, youth and intelligence. In today’s world, despite what some may choose to believe, appearances really do matter. Whatever you’re doing, be it assisting a customer, going out for a job interview, going on a date, meeting with a client or setting an example for your children, your confidence will help you get through any challenge. It’s often said that a smile is a window to the soul, and when your smile is at its best, you’ll be able to show off a beautiful, confident soul.

Often, an unsightly smile can be a side effect of poor oral health. More than just a cosmetic issue, poor oral health can lead to a host of adverse effects. Infections, abscesses and various levels of pain can all be associated with subpar oral health. Luckily, many of these issues can be rectified or prevented with proper dental work from Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA.

Have a Perfect Smile with Braces

Perfect smiles are often a source of envy for those of us who didn’t receive braces at a young age. We often believe that braces are no longer an option and that they might have too big of an impact on our current daily lives. In actuality, more and more adults are opting for perfect teeth and adult braces.

Why braces?

Various things can cause your teeth to become crooked or your jaws to be misaligned, including: crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints. If left untreated these problems can become more serious, resulting in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches, earaches, and speaking, biting or chewing problems. Orthodontic techniques and technology have advanced significantly within the last decade. It not only takes less time until you can show off that perfect smile, but it’s a much less noticeable process.

Procedures

Orthodontic procedures are complex processes which is why it’s important to see a dentist such as Dr. Benjamin Polan. In most cases, the dentist will need to make a plaster cast of the individual’s teeth and perform full X-rays of the head and mouth. After orthodontic appliances are placed, they need to be adjusted from time to time to ensure that they continue to move the teeth into their correct position. Retainers are used following the braces to ensure that the teeth remain in position.

Aesthetic and Comfort Issues

Advances in technology have vastly improved appearance issues with braces. Today they are made from extremely lightweight and natural-colored materials. The braces are attached to the teeth via a bonding agent, which is completely removable after the process. Since orthodontic appliances need to be regularly adjusted they can create pressure on the teeth and jaws. This mild discomfort will quickly subside following each adjustment.

Hygiene issues around kid and adult braces in Beverly, MA

People who wear braces must be diligent in ensuring that food particles and other debris do not get trapped in the network of brackets and wires. Daily oral hygiene such as brushing, flossing and rinsing are a necessity. Some people with orthodontic appliances can benefit from using water picks, which emit small pressurized bursts of water that can effectively rinse away such debris.

Questions?

You and your child are probably going to have all sorts of questions on when to best obtain the braces, how long the process will take, and of course if they’ll affect school pictures. If you need more information about kid or adult braces, Beverly MA dentist Dr. Ben Polan has the answers. His primary goal is to make sure that nobody is left in the dark and that everyone is at ease during all stages of the process.
