Cosmetic dentistry has evolved to the point where many different types of products can be used to improve the function and look of the mouth. One of the most common and effective types of treatments is a can fillers. There are many advantages to using these products, and some of them are explained below. To begin with, these products can be used on both adults and children who have lost their teeth. If you just need a quick fix, then this might be a good choice for you.
Caring for these fillers is relatively easy. Just brush your teeth with regular toothpaste after cleaning your mouth with a fluoride mouthwash. Be careful about not applying too much toothpaste as you do not want to make matters worse by gagging. Also you should rinse your mouth with water after brushing to wash away any leftover debris that you might have missed with the toothbrush. Make sure to use a separate soft toothbrush for this purpose as soft bristles can cause more irritation to your gums.
Unlike veneers, these types of can fillers are permanent. In fact, the treatment usually lasts a lifetime, although in most cases only several months. However, the main disadvantage is the cost. They are significantly more expensive than their less expensive alternative, titanium crowns. It is best to see an orthodontist to get an accurate estimate before proceeding.
Veneers can also be used to correct conditions like spaced teeth or an unevenly spaced mandible. If you have lost a tooth in your upper jaw and wish to use a veneer then you should know that there are actually two types of can fillers – those that you can use on the upper jaw and those that you can use on the lower jaw. These types of products differ primarily based upon the area of the jaw that needs to be corrected. The common practice is to correct both the height and the width of the upper jaw.
To correct an unevenly spaced mandible, you can go for the veneers that come in different shapes and sizes. Usually the distance between the gaps is adjusted by cutting out a portion of the tooth. Another procedure to be followed is the filing of the surface of the tooth. This is where the crown is shaped and fixed on to the tooth. A dental hygienist is also needed who will make the final adjustments. However, since this is only required for patients with severely damaged or misshapen jaws, most often this is not necessary.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures like these can be quite costly. However, they are well worth the money spent. Although many of us tend to think of plastic when we hear the word ‘plastic’, it is true that there are many other kinds of fillers. These can fill in minor mouth defects as well as help correct minor facial abnormalities. So, if you are having trouble tightening your facial muscles, try using one of these can fillers.
