7 Changes Cosmetic Dentistry Will Make to Your Smile

Your smile is one of your best assets. You should be comfortable and happy sharing your smile with the world. However, if this is not the case, you have many options to improve it. This is where cosmetic dentistry can help!

In this article we’ll talk about the 7 main changes that cosmetic dentistry will make to your smile…

  1. Teeth whitening: While you may have used many off-the-shelf teeth whitening products, nothing is quite as effective as professional teeth whitening products. These include peroxide whitening gel, which can dramatically lighten your teeth. We also can complete the whitening process with an in office light based system.
  2. Dental crowns: These are used to fix short teeth, misshapen teeth, or discolored teeth. These dental crowns can help rebuild your smile in a way that no other treatment can.
  3. Gum reshaping: If you have excess of gum tissue in your mouth, we can discuss procedures to help you show more of your teeth and improve your smile.
  4. Orthodontic treatment: One of the most popular orthodontic treatments is Invisalign®. This treatment uses aligners made of transparent plastic to push your teeth in stages. We can refer you to an orthodontist to correct crooked teeth, close gaps, add space between crowded teeth, and fix underbites, overbites and other bite issues.
  5. Dental veneers: These conceal your natural teeth. Veneers are bonded to the front of your smile to change its appearance. Veneers can hide discolored teeth, as well as disguise chipped or worn out teeth. We also use veneers to close gaps between teeth, or make crowded teeth look like they are parallel to one another.
  6. Strengthening of sensitive teeth: Weak enamel and exposed tooth roots can leave your teeth vulnerable to aches and pains. Cosmetic dental work can cover these sensitive areas, so that you can eat both hot and cold foods without any problems.
  7. Dental bonding: This is a cosmetic dental procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is applied hardened with a special light, thereby “bonding” the material to the tooth to improve your smile. This is one of the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. Dental bonding can be used to repair chipped teeth, close gaps, change the shape of teeth, or be used as a cosmetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings.

So, these are just some of the ways that cosmetic dentistry can be used to restore and enhance your smile. Consult your dentist for more details about what cosmetic dentistry can do for you. At GraceAdamsDDS, we perform many cosmetic procedures to help restore your greatest asset – your smile!
