How Can I Fix My Teeth and Smile?


Do you not like your smile?

Sound impossible, right?

How about a smile makeover?

Thanks to modern dentistry, you can easily achieve this!

Did you know that a smile makes you more confident? In fact, an inviting one changes the way others treat you.

Let’s dig deeper into the tips for fixing it:

Yearly Dental Checkups

A visit to the dentist twice yearly is the only thing that will save you from cavities. Remember, these black holes are the ones damaging your teeth.

Regular checkups help detect issues early on. These include:

  • Tooth decay
  • Excess plaque buildup
  • Gum disease
  • Oral cancer

Teeth Whitening

Here, you have two options:

  1. Over-the-counter options like whitening strips and gels.
  2. In-office treatments offer clear and quick results.

Do limit coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco intake to prevent discoloration.

Orthodontic Treatments

Traditional braces help correct alignment issues over time.

  • Invisalign® and other brands offer a more discreet option for straightening teeth.
  • After orthodontic treatment, retainers help maintain the new position of your teeth.

Dental Veneers

These improve the function and aesthetics of your smile. Dental veneers include three options:

Porcelain Veneers

Thin shells bonded to the front of teeth. These improve shape, color, and alignment.

Composite Veneers

A more affordable option made from resin, applied directly to teeth.

  • Longevity: Veneers can last between 10 to 15 years with proper care.

Crowns and Bridges

Are your teeth about to fall off? Then crowns are the best option. They restore the shape and function of teeth.

As for bridges, they replace one or more missing teeth. They are anchored by crowns on adjacent teeth.

Dental Implants

  • Replace missing teeth with a titanium post and a crown.
  • Function like natural teeth.
  • Last a lifetime with proper care.
  • Help prevent jawbone loss associated with missing teeth.


Composite resin is a cost-effective option for repairing:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps

The treatment can be completed in one visit. It is less expensive than veneers. Lastly, bonding stays for several years but may require touch-ups.

Consult a dentist in Castle Rock to find out which option suits you best.
