Cosmetic Concerns About Your Smile

Dr. Patel will thoroughly evaluate all aspects of your smile to determine if there are any underlying problems that could impact the integrity of your results. Recommended treatment will be designed to not only meet your aesthetic goals but to support your long-term dental health.

With his dental team, Dr. Patel can provide the experienced care you and your family need to address dental concerns with long-lasting results. Dr. Patel always takes the key components of a healthy smile into consideration, including lifestyle habits that can affect the appearance and function of your bite. The goal of any dentistry we recommend is to stabilize your oral health, address any cosmetic goals you have, and provide the foundation for a lifetime of smiles.

Dental Concerns: When To See A Dentist

Contact our Westborough dental office if you are experiencing tooth pain, swelling, sudden tenderness or tooth sensitivity, tooth discoloration, and tooth damage. We treat all types of concerns and will work with you in the event of a dental emergency. Other concerns that should be addressed can include:

  • Bleeding Gums: Bleeding gums are caused by harmful bacteria that inflame and irritate both teeth and gums. Antibacterial rinses can treat mild gum irritation, while oral surgery is recommended for patients with severe cases of gum disease.
  • Crooked Teeth: Straighten tooth misalignment with bonding, crowns, veneers, and Invisalign.
  • Discolored Teeth: Tobacco products, medications, and certain foods and beverages discolor the tooth enamel. Professional whitening and cosmetic care can brighten your smile.
  • Fear of the Dentist: Patients with dental fear and anxiety benefit from dental sedation and our comfortable office environment.
  • Frequent Headaches: Sometimes, headaches can be a sign of TMJ disorders, which can be treated with physical therapy and nightguards.
  • Missing Teeth: Whether you have single or multiple missing teeth, Dr. Patel and his team can find the right restoration for you.
  • Sleep Apnea: Mild to moderate forms of obstructive sleep apnea can be addressed with comfortable and portable oral appliances.
  • Teeth Grinding: Bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, is a symptom of a bite problem. We can treat bruxism with orthodontics, nightguards, or restorative care.
