Are you lacking the confidence to flaunt your smile? Maybe you even cover it at times or try not to show your teeth? You have enough to worry about without throwing your smile into the mix. Cosmetic dentistry has many options to help revitalize your smile and boost self-confidence.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
One of the most highly sought-after forms of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. Both in office and at home procedures are available, but it is always best to have a dentist involved. Over the counter treatments break down while sitting on the shelf and they just don’t produce the same results, so it is best not to waste your time. The best way to achieve your brightest, whitest smile is to consult a professional.
Another great way to improve your smile is with tooth colored filings. People often assume that these are only for restoring fractured or decayed teeth. In reality, tooth colored fillings can also be used to change the size and shape of a tooth, so they are helpful in restoring small chips and gaps as well.
Porcelain veneers and crowns are another fantastic option to help restore a beautiful smile. Veneers are like small, thin sheets of porcelain which are placed over the front of the teeth to create a bright uniform smile and close larger gaps. Dental crowns, on the other hand, are like more of a cap for your teeth which restores form and function.
Invisalign is a wonderful alternative to traditional braces which can be used to treat a variety of other dental issues too. It is a series of clear plastic aligners custom made for each patient. They are worn for up to twenty-two hours per day until it is time to move to the next in the series. These aligners gently move teeth to the desired position. People love that these are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing and visiting the dentist so they can immediately resume normal activities.
Cosmetic dentistry just makes good dental economics. It enhances your smile, boosts self-esteem and can also improve general health. Take the first step to a better you and call our office today.
