You don’t have to be satisfied with the look of your smile if you have crooked, chipped, discolored or even if you are missing one or more teeth. You can have a smile makeover that will make you want to constantly share your smile.
It’s true, in the past, cosmetic dental procedures were considered only for an elite few – but, things have changed. Cosmetic dentistry is not just for the rich and famous. There are several treatments and procedures that are available to anyone who has teeth that make them feel self-conscious. With many new techniques – you and your cosmetic dentist can determine how a smile makeover can change the way you feel about your looks.
Discolored, dull and stained teeth are the first thing noticed. Even if your teeth are perfectly shaped, spaced just right and straight – discoloration can be off-putting. Teeth are easily stained. Age and certain drinks and foods can cause stains no matter how well you take care of your teeth.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest processes you can do for yourself that will make the most dramatic difference in your appearance – as well as how you feel about your smile. You can ask your dentist to fit you with whitening trays that you will use along with whitening gel. This method is effective to get rid of those stains and brighten your smile.
For immediate results, you might want to consider having your teeth whitened in your dental office. Advanced lasers can be used to give you a sparkling smile with just one visit to your cosmetic dentist. You will immediately notice the change in your smile and your self-confidence. You will walk out the door with a bright smile. No more hiding that smile when it’s time for pictures. Whiter teeth will indeed give you a smile makeover.
When your teeth are chipped, cracked or crooked – it’s understandable you don’t feel like sharing your smile. If this sounds familiar, veneers might be the answer for you. They will give you straight, white teeth. A true smile makeover.
Veneers thin shells of porcelain made precisely to fit over the front of your teeth. They look and feel like your natural teeth. Veneers are permanent and you will be able to care for them the same way you do your natural teeth.
Invisalign & Clear Correct Aligners
Teeth that are crooked can make you want to cover your mouth with your hand instead of showing off that grin. Invisalign and Clear Correct aligners are alternatives to traditional metal braces.
These aligners are made from a smooth, clear, sturdy and comfortable plastic material that are worn over your teeth. You pop in a new set of aligner trays about every two weeks and the aligners gradually shift your teeth into place. You take them out when you eat and brush your teeth as you normally do. A visit to your dentist every six weeks or so will help to monitor the progress of straightening your teeth.
If you are self-conscious of a gummy smile – showing too much of your gums – you only have to visit your cosmetic dentist to see how that can be changed. With this problem, your teeth may look too small. Using a laser that is specifically meant for dental work, your cosmetic dentist will contour your gums. The result is that less gum and more of your teeth are shown when you flash that winning smile.
Make an appointment for a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. He or she will discuss the types of treatments available, the cost, and how long the treatments will take. You will be able to make an informed decision the treatment that will give you your new smile.
