Ways to Correct Your Teeth with a Dental Makeover
Hollywood Dentist, Dr. Goodrick and the staff at A Unique Dental Experience® provide smile makeovers for a number of different problems that you may have with your teeth. No matter what your problem may be, there is a cosmetic, general, or restorative dentistry solution.
Gaps in Smile – Having gaps in your smile can cause a number of different problems. You might be concerned with your appearance, but gaps can also cause bite problems, leading to painful teeth or jaw muscles. Hollywood dentist Dr. Goodrick can correct gaps in your smile with treatments like Invisalign or smile makeover solutions like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
Gummy Smile – If your gums are red an inflamed it could be a sign of periodontal disease. Also, having a gummy smile might be a source of self-consciousness or embarrassment. Dr. Goodrick can correct your smile if you are unhappy about the amount of gum tissue that shows, or if your gums are suffering from periodontal disease with laser gum therapy.
Teeth Whitening – Whitening the color of your smile can give you a huge boost in self-confidence because you can be proud of the shade of your teeth. Teeth can become darker or stained over time from foods, drinks, tobacco products, or other staining agents. Dr. Goodrick can whiten your smile with BriteSmile, or, if the stains cannot be lightened, with porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
Broken Teeth – Teeth can be chipped, cracked, or broken off from any number of elements. Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth can alter your bite and prevent you from chewing properly. If you have a broken tooth, Hollywood dentist Dr. Goodrick can restore your smile so that it looks and functions properly with dental bonding, dental crowns, or porcelain veneers.
Crooked Teeth – Having crooked teeth can be a huge burden. Not only will crooked teeth affect your bite and, but they can also make you feel ashamed of your smile. Dr. Goodrick can use Invisalign, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding to correct your crooked teeth so that you can be proud of your smile.
Misshapen Teeth – Misshaped teeth can cause you to be self-conscious about your smile, as well as disrupt your bite. If you have misshapen teeth, contact Dr. Goodrick to have them fixed. Dr. Goodrick can use dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding to correct your tooth problems.
Decay in Teeth – If your teeth hurt when you eat or drink, it may be sign that you have decaying teeth. Having decayed teeth is dangerous because it can lead to tooth loss and periodontal disease. If you are suffering from decaying teeth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Goodrick; you can have your teeth repaired with dental crowns, white fillings, dental bonding, dental implants, or oral surgery.
Headaches/Migraines – Headaches and migraines are often dismissed as not having any type of physical cause. However, new evidence is now showing that a misalignment of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) (the joint that connects your lower jaw to your head) can cause serious problems including tension and vascular headaches. A misaligned TMJ can cause tooth grinding, jaw pain, and headaches. Dr. Goodrick can correct these problems with neuromuscular dentistry and realigning your TMJ.
