Do not let dissatisfaction with the appearance of your teeth keep you from showing your happiness. Whatever the issue is with your teeth, there is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that will improve your smile and give you the confidence to smile to your heart’s content.
What are my cosmetic dentistry options?
Depending on what is affecting the appearance of your teeth, the procedure can greatly improve the way your teeth look. A few cosmetic dentistry procedures to consider are:
Teeth whitening: Yellowed or stained teeth can make your teeth look old or not well taken care of. In office teeth whitening is a fast, affordable way to dramatically whiten your teeth in one appointment. With good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing everyday, and simple tricks like drinking water after drinking coffee, wine, or dark sodas, your teeth will stay bright and white for years to come.
Invisible braces: If you are uncomfortable with the appearance of your crooked or overlapping teeth, but want to straighten your teeth discreetly, invisible braces can be the perfect solution. Prevent tooth decay or infection which can result from cleaning difficulties from crooked teeth by straightening your teeth.
Esthetic bonding: An affordable, fast procedure that can conceal minor imperfections like a discolored tooth, a chip, a gap, and cracks. The bonding is a tooth colored resin that can be attached to the tooth and shaped by the dentist. It will then harden and blend in with your teeth.
Porcelain veneers: To make a big improvement for your teeth, especially if you have misshapen, or drastically uneven teeth, porcelain veneers can be attached to the front of the teeth, concealing any imperfections. Porcelain has a very similar appearance to your natural tooth enamel, while also being stain resistant and very hard. Porcelain has a low likelihood of allergic reactions as well. Dentists also use porcelain for crowns and fillings that perfectly blend in with your other teeth. Porcelain veneers will last up to 20 years and are considered a permanent restoration. They can make a dramatic improvement on your smile.
