Dentistry has come a long way in just the past 50 years. Not that long ago, the most common approach to solving a serious dental issue was extraction. Today, many problem teeth can not only be saved but made to look better than ever.
It’s fair to say that thanks to modern dental technology there isn’t any dental issue that can’t be repaired, resolved, or made to look better. This includes things like misshapen or malformed teeth, crooked or bent teeth, chipped or cracked teeth, or stains or other cosmetic issues caused by prior poor dental health.
Today, everything old can be made to look new again.
Food for Thought
Obviously, the best way to ensure healthy teeth and gums is through a lifetime of good oral health. Daily brushing and flossing, avoiding food and drinks that stain, and seeing your dentists for regular checkups can help give you a bright, gorgeous smile your whole life.
But what about people who weren’t fortunate enough to be born with good dental genes? Or those raised in an environment where top quality dental care wasn’t always available? Or people who have had an accident or injury to their teeth? Can they be helped?
The answer is an unequivocal “Yes!” Today, just about any dental issue can be fixed and made to look better than brand new. Even if you have terrible teeth, they can be fixed so you have the 10,000-megawatt smile of a movie star. All it takes is the will to do it.
The Biggest Hurdle
But there’s the biggest obstacle: People’s unwillingness to address the issues they have with their teeth. Many believe that dental fixes take a long time, are too expensive, or are going to be extraordinarily painful.
All three assumptions are usually false. Today’s dental care is nearly painless, surprisingly affordable, and often can be completed in a single visit.
So stop making excuses and finally do something about your teeth. If there’s a will, there’s a way to give you the bright, perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
