Symmetrical Teeth

One of the most important aspects of your teeth is if they are straight or symmetrical. Many people think that your teeth have to be completely straight in order to look your best, but that is not the case.

As you meet with your orthodontist discuss different options and he or she will be able to give you very sound advice on what your teeth should look like. 

White Teeth

Over time and especially when a person gets older, the nice white color of teeth starts to turn more of a yellowish color. This can be extremely hard to stop, and can make a person feel insecure about their teeth. The yellow tint can come from what you eat, drink, or simply using tobacco. There is no doubt that white teeth look nicer and younger than yellow teeth. The good news is that dentists can use bleaches, lasers, light, and mild abrasion to significantly whiten your teeth. You may need to make some adjustments to you diet, and stop smoking or chewing tobacco to maintain white teeth, but you will most definitely love your white teeth.

Structural Support

Many people do not realize that a major part of the supportive tissue in your face is in the mouth. As people age the supportive tissue starts to deteriorate and you can have your skin start to droop. The most common way to combat this is with a facelift, but this procedure can look very unnatural. An oral surgeon can go into your mouth and repair the tissue that is deteriorating, and add more structural support. This usually gives individuals with a much more natural looking alternative to other procedures.
