How Dentistry can change your Smile and Life


Healthy teeth do not only allow you to chew food well and enjoy your meal, but it can also turn out to be one of your greatest assets. A striking tempting smile, keeping teeth related disease at bay. Plus, that greater boost of confidence knowing you got those pearl of white teeth framing your mouth.

A smile no doubt has a great impact on our social lives, relationships, and success at the workplace.  Your smile matters and it should be taken seriously. This means when you gaze at yourself in the mirror and you don’t like what is smiling back at you, or you still feel unattractive and always being laughed at for your teeth. You might want to give your oral health the best possible attention.

This is where dentistry comes in. “If your teeth are stained, chipped, broken, misaligned,  discolored, worn, having gaps, misshapen, modern dentistry can give you a better smile. This allows you to be happier and more confident, potentially creating a new path and different opportunities for the rest of your life,” says Dr. Zhang Minguan. A certified dental surgeon with more than 20 years of experience in the field. “The fact is that not having an attractive smile can alter your confidence and the ability to present your best selves which can lead to higher levels of stress, anxiety, and negativity,” he adds. Read on as Dr. Zhang Minguan walks you through how dentistry can change your smile and ultimately your life.

Breathe life to your teeth with a dental crown

If you have baldly damaged teeth or teeth lost due to gum disease, dental crowns are required to restore strength and beauty to your teeth. These are caps that are placed over worn-out, damaged teeth, and are made of metals, porcelain, resin and ceramics that matches perfectly with the rest of the teeth for a polished finish. Crowns can be used together with bridges where there are teeth gaps with crowns to hold it in place. Crowns promise long-lasting results for upto 15 years if well taken care of. 

Get a long-term solution with Dental implants

Having gap teeth can be embarrassing when you smile and can even impede your ability to eat or speak well. Whether you lost tooth/teeth through injury from a fall or accident, tooth decay, or gum disease, a dental implant is a huge one as it totally replaces the missing teeth. Implants entail surgically screwing titanium into the jawbone which acts as a tooth root providing strong support for crowns. Dental implants are of a very good aesthetic quality and look more natural than regular dentures. If well taken care of with regular checks, the implant screw can last a lifetime. 

Enhance your smile with Gum contouring

Do you have a gummy smile in which a lot of gum tissue can be seen when you laugh or grin and the teeth appear smaller? Gum contouring is the way out. This is a cosmetic procedure that can be a game-changer to your gums. Excessive gum tissue is cut away to re-contour the gum line and give that perfect smile.
