Are you dissatisfied with your smile’s appearance? You can achieve the smile of your dreams by working with a cosmetic dentist who can correct any number of issues that detract from your smile. Furthermore, these cosmetic dentistry treatments have results with a lifelike appearance, making your smile look as natural as possible.
Aesthetic Concerns That Affect Patients’ Smiles
A beautiful smile is bright and white with properly positioned teeth that are in good condition. Anything that deviates from those criteria can make your smile look unattractive. In particular, issues like chipped, cracked or stained teeth affect your smile’s appearance. A smile is also less appealing if teeth are undersized, crooked or missing. Fortunately, a cosmetic dentist can address any of these issues and work with you to give you the smile of your dreams!
Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Depending on your needs and smile goals, different cosmetic procedures may be recommended in your case. These treatments can be administered individually or in combination as part of a smile makeover. Your cosmetic dentist will determine which treatments are most appropriate after evaluating your case. Any of the following interventions may be beneficial for you:
- Teeth whitening: Teeth can be stained by the things that we eat and drink, as well as by some medications and habits like smoking. Your teeth also take on a more yellow tinge as you get older and wear and tear on the enamel exposes the underlying dentin. Teeth whitening treatments can eliminate all of this discoloration and leave your smile as many as 10 shades whiter.
- Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers are like the Swiss Army Knife of cosmetic dentistry. They do it all! These tooth-shaped shells can be bonded atop a patient’s biological tooth to hide various defects, like chips, cracks, stains and disproportionately small teeth.
- Invisalign: Orthodontic treatment can improve a patient’s smile significantly, but many patients are reluctant to conceal their teeth behind clunky metal brackets and wires in order to straighten their smiles. Invisalign is a good alternative for these patients because it uses a series of barely noticeable clear plastic trays in order to apply forces to the teeth and move them into the proper positions.
- Dental implants: Not only do dental implants help patients to restore a complete smile, but they also stabilize the smile. The implants serve as artificial tooth roots to anchor the jawbone tissue while holding the prosthetic tooth or teeth in place.
