Loving your smile doesn’t have to stop as you age or experience dental health issues. You may even love your smile more! Here’s how to love your smile no matter what challenges you face.

Dental Challenges are Normal

Many people feel self-conscious when they experience dental health issues or challenges, but that’s often because they don’t know how common they are, especially when they are age-related. Recognizing that you’re not the only one suffering from challenges can help you to love your smile with confidence and feel less alone as you seek ways to resolve those challenges.

How Your Dentist Can Help

Thanks to modern dental technology, dentists can do amazing things to help maintain and restore your beautiful smile. There are so many options now, you might find it hard to choose! From dentures and bridges to implants and crowns, you’re sure to find a solution that works for you! Let’s examine some of the pros and cons of each option.

The Best Solution for You

Dentures can be a great cost-effective solution for people who want a simple and affordable solution, but it also has some downsides. Dentures aren’t as strong as some of the other options available, might become loose at inopportune times, require dietary restrictions, and need to be removed for soaking overnight.

Bridges and implants with crowns, on the other hand, can provide a more permanent solution because they are fixed in place like your natural teeth and made of stronger material. Because of this, they also function more like your natural teeth, reducing or eliminating the need for dietary restrictions. They can also be cleaned by brushing and flossing, just like you’re used to!

Schedule a Consultation

The best solution for someone else might not be the best solution for you, so it’s important to talk with a dentist you trust about which options are available to fit your specific dental needs, budget, and lifestyle. Our goal is for each of our patients to truly love their smile, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have!
