To repair misshapen teeth, either due to wear or have been chipped or cracked, your dentist can bond a resin compound to them, which is then reshaped to return to your tooth its natural appearance. It's made to match the color of the rest of your teeth, making for a nearly undetectable result. Because of this, the same compound can be used instead of traditional amalgam fillings to avoid its very noticeable silver color.
Unlike a bridge, a dental implant completely replaces a missing tooth without the need to impact those adjacent to the gap. Nor does it depend on them for support. Instead, a titanium post is permanently bonded onto the bone beneath your gums which will serve as a sort of replacement root for your new tooth.
If your smile has several imperfections, such as misshapen teeth, misaligned, or problems with spacing, then dental veneers may be able to help. Veneers are thin but very strong caps that are attached to your teeth in a similar way to crowns. But due to their size, they do not require as much of your tooth to be reshaped to complete the procedure. The results are typically a full smile makeover.
If your main concern is the color of your teeth then professional teeth whitening is your best bet. It is a much safer and faster procedure than over the counter products, and one that produces much more noticeable results.
