Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

Miami and Coral Gables, Florida

While we have grown accustomed to seeing beautiful, near-perfect smiles, very few people are actually born with perfect teeth. Almost everyone has some kind of cosmetic dental flaw, and it is not unusual to have several. Miami cosmetic dentists Dr. Raul Garcia and Dr. Conchi Sanchez-Garcia offer their patients healthy solutions to these common cosmetic dental problems.

Discoloration

Discoloration can range from the mild yellowing and dullness that occurs naturally with age to deep, dark staining caused by tetracycline use in childhood. Today’s tooth whitening can eliminate almost any staining from mild to severe.

If you have stains that do no respond satisfactorily to tooth whitening, porcelain veneers can be used to cover your stained teeth, giving you a beautiful, white smile.

Crooked Teeth

Our Miami cosmetic dentists offer several solutions for crooked teeth:

  • Invisalign orthodontic treatment can be used to straighten adult teeth without the need for brackets and wires. Invisalign is a primary area of focus for Dr. Sanchez-Garcia.
  • Porcelain veneers can be used to correct the appearance of minor crookedness without having to go through the process of truly straightening your teeth. This is often referred to as “instant orthodontics.”
  • Dr. Sanchez-Garcia also offers children’s orthodontics to prevent the development of more serious problems as your child’s mouth develops.

Gaps between Your Teeth

Very small gaps can be covered with dental bonding. Larger gaps can be corrected by building up the adjacent teeth with porcelain veneers. A very large gap caused by a missing tooth can be corrected by replacing the tooth with a dental implant.

Chipped or Broken Teeth

Flawed teeth can be renewed with porcelain veneers or dental bonding. In some cases, the teeth are simply chipped or may have a large piece broken off of them. Our doctors will be able to recommend a custom restoration that is best for your teeth. For severely damaged teeth, dental crowns are a more appropriate solution.

Unevenly Sized or Shaped Teeth

Much like minor crookedness, the appearance of unevenly sized or shaped teeth can also corrected with porcelain veneers or dental bonding. An exceptionally short tooth may be better treated with a dental crown.

Unsightly Gums

The appearance of your gums can affect the beauty of your smile just as much as the look of your teeth. Gum recontouring can correct an uneven gum line, puffy gums, or a gummy smile.
