There are cosmetic procedures, besides implants, that can make your teeth look better. I like to do veneers—porcelain veneers because it's an instant change to your smile. Of course, we do all kinds of dentistry here, including the bread and butter fillings. We do composite fillings here that are white that mimic tooth structure. We try to pay particular attention to making your filled tooth look like the rest of your teeth: matching the shade, duplicating the anatomy on top of the tooth, the kind of things that a patient doesn't even know that you're doing. Luckily though, with intraoral cameras, you can show someone exactly what you've done and show the shape of the tooth and show them how lifelike it is. We don't place silver amalgam fillings here anymore, even though it's still commonly done. I feel like that a silver filling is gonna cause problems down the road. We end up replacing a lot of silver fillings here with composites.
Keeping your smile healthy is important because your oral health is closely linked to your overall physical health. Keeping your smile beautiful is important too because a great-looking grin can boost your emotional health. If you hide your smile due to cosmetic flaws, it affects how you relate to others and how you see yourself.
