Whenever you are out in public, your teeth are on display. Whether conversing with family, friends, or business colleagues; enjoying a meal out; or exchanging smiles with total strangers, your teeth are a prominent feature that get noticed. So you want them to look their absolute best. If you’ve ever wondered what you could do to improve the appearance of your teeth, a consultation with our cosmetic dentist will identify and outline the enhancements that could help you upgrade your smile.
Cosmetic Solutions to Enhance Your Smile
- Teeth Whitening: Possibly the most often performed cosmetic enhancement, the option of brightening your smile multiple shades in the privacy of your home is readily available. Acquiring teeth whitening from your dentist, a licensed dental professional, allows you to benefit from the most powerful teeth whitening agents available in a take home kit. Your dentist will provide you with a customized tray, teeth whitening solution, and complete instructions that will allow you to improve your smile in the time frame of your choosing.
- Tooth Colored Restorations: For years, the only solution for dental decay came in the form of dental amalgam, a silver restoration that is noticeable when you smile. Thankfully, we now enjoy the benefit of tooth-colored enhancements that are available to treat dental decay; old silver fillings can be removed and replaced with tooth-colored material. Chipped teeth can also be repaired using a composite that is strong; and through the talent of your cosmetic dentist, these updates are virtually undetectable.
- Porcelain Veneers: For patients looking to change the appearance of one or multiple teeth, porcelain veneers are very thin shells that can be applied to the front of teeth improving stained, misshapen, or poorly spaced teeth in just a few dental visits. Veneers are a permanent option as a minimal amount of enamel is removed from teeth to be treated so the finished product will provide a symmetrical smile.
