It can be very disappointing to have dental work and have it turn out differently than you expected. If you’ve had dental work that has left your teeth looking uneven, discolored, or just not the way you want them to look, a cosmetic dentist can help correct the issues so you can be proud of your smile again.
Problems with Your Dental Work
In most cases, dental work helps successfully restore or repair damaged or decayed teeth. Usually, the results do not detract from the look of your smile. Fillings or dental crowns in the back teeth are not readily visible, and work done on front teeth is placed in such a way that it is invisible, or is performed with tooth-colored materials.
Sometimes, however, dental work can result in problems like cracked teeth, discoloration, misalignment, or dark-colored fillings that are easily visible. In these cases, you can work with a cosmetic dentist to determine the best approach to restoring your smile to normal.
Options for Restoring Your Smile
The first step for repairing your teeth is to consult with a cosmetic dentist. You’ll discuss what it is about your teeth you don’t like and what the best options are to repair them. For example, if past dental work has led your teeth to crack or chip, your teeth can be restored with tooth-colored dental crowns or with veneers, depending upon the type of damage.
Some cosmetic dentistry options that can help fix dental work you’re not pleased with include:
- Replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings
- Tooth-colored dental crowns
- Porcelain veneers
- Inlays and onlays
These procedures, or a combination of procedures, can correct the problems that exist with your smile. You and your dentist will decide together on what the right approach is to give you the results you want.
