Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

Serving St. Joseph, Niles, South Bend, Kalamazoo and all of Southwest Michigan

Look around you. How many people do you encounter on a daily basis who have a perfect smile? It is rare to find someone with perfectly-aligned teeth that are also bright white and naturally shaped. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can help correct many of the common dental problems which may mar an otherwise beautiful smile.
Smile Appearance Issues

A beautiful smile is a healthy smile, and a tooth that is misaligned, discolored, or broken is often a sign that something can be done to improve both form and function. One of the most common cosmetic dental issues is crooked teeth. Even if you wore braces as a teenager, you may still experience some degree of misalignment as an adult. Crooked teeth not only reduce the attractiveness of your smile, they usually cause upper and lower teeth to fit together improperly, a condition referred to as a “bad bite” or malocclusion.

Other common cosmetic dental problems include:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn biting surfaces
  • Missing teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Overgrown gum tissue
  • Gaps between teeth
