Upgrading Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry

There is no such thing as a one-size fits all perfect smile. A perfect smile is the one that is perfect for you by making you feel confident. Your smile should not make you feel self-conscious to laugh or say cheese with a full smile in pictures. If you find yourself frequently covering your mouth when you speak or laugh, you may want to upgrade your smile. There are many different options for cosmetic dentistry that can address different issues to fit within your goals, budget, and time frame. Sorting through these options may make it easier to discuss how you want to get the smile of your dreams.

Teeth Whitening

Your dentist can offer two different options for professional teeth whitening: in-office treatment and custom take-home treatment. Choosing between these two will depend on your time and budget. The in-office treatment can get your teeth up to 10 shades whiter in just one office visit. The take-home treatment can get the same results in under two weeks.

Cosmetic Bonding

Some stains come from inside the tooth and cannot be removed with professional whitening. In these cases, the stains can be covered by cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers. Cosmetic bonding is the same material used in tooth-colored fillings. The bonding material is applied directly to your tooth, shaped, hardened, and polished to reach your desired appearance. Bonding is a good option to correct minor chips, cracks, small gaps, and unevenly spaced or sized teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

While bonding is a great option for one or a few teeth, porcelain veneers can cover the issues of your entire smile. Veneers are small shells applied directly to the front of the teeth. They can be customized to give you the smile you are looking for.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

Sometimes, the issue that makes you insecure about your smile does not stem from your teeth. Your gums can sometimes be to blame. Cosmetic gum surgery involves contouring what some may call a “gummy smile” to give you gums that are more proportional to your teeth.
