Cosmetic dentistry offers many options allowing you to have the great smile you’ve always wanted. Ask your dentist this question … What can I do to improve my smile?
Teeth Whitening Can Provide Significant Improvement
Dental stains and tooth discoloration can have a detrimental effect on your appearance. Over the counter pastes, gels, and rinses seldom make any difference.
Teeth whitening acquired through your dentist has many advantages over anything you can buy at your local store or on the internet. You will receive a product from your dentist that has proven results, and has been tested for your safety. And since it is being dispensed by a licensed provider, it contains the most powerful whitening agents you can buy.
Additionally, your dentist is available to address any questions or concerns you may have, an option you won’t have buying teeth whitening through any other source. Your dazzling smile will make you wonder why you didn’t do this long ago.
Multiple Problems – One Solution with Porcelain Veneers
Perhaps you are faced with uneven dentition, chipped enamel, and/or unwanted gaps between teeth. You may think a combination of dental maladies is too much to overcome. However, there is a solution available with porcelain veneers.
Veneers are very thin, tooth colored shells designed to be bonded to the front of teeth requiring repair. Whether you have one or multiple teeth you want to improve, veneers can conceal all the cosmetic problems that are preventing your from smiling confidently.
Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of teeth requiring treatment. That is so when veneers are cemented in place, your teeth will be symmetrical. Once enamel is removed, dental impressions are sent to the dental lab. When ready, veneers will be tried on for a perfect fit. Veneers allow you to enjoy a fabulous smile with this permanent treatment option.
If you are considering teeth whitening, that should be completed before the veneers procedure so that your veneers can be matched to your newly lightened teeth shade.
One other cosmetic option to consider is dental bonding. It is a much more conservative approach that utilizes a tooth colored resin material ideal for repairing smaller cosmetic issues.
Whatever approach you and your dentist decide upon, the result will be a dazzling smile that will provide lasting improvement you will enjoy for many years. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our team at A Smile Above today.
