Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Smile


There’s no denying the fact an attractive smile provides several emotional, social and professional benefits. If you’re not confident about how your smile looks, you may cover your mouth when spending time with others or even try to hold back your smile because you don’t want people to see your teeth. Many people just like you are choosing to visit cosmetic dentists to enhance the appearance of their smiles. Here are a few ways cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile so you can smile with complete confidence knowing your teeth look amazing.

Professional Teeth Whitening

A sparkling white smile appears attractive to all who see it. But sometimes our smile is not as white as we’d like due to things like teeth-staining foods & drinks we enjoy, smoking or simply the aging process. If your teeth are stained, yellow or discolored, a cosmetic dentist can dramatically whiten and brighten your smile in only about one hour’s time using a safe and effective, professional-strength bleaching solution and a special laser light.

Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth are misshapen, gapped, cracked, chipped or heavily stained, a cosmetic dentist can cover those imperfections using porcelain veneers. Unlike dental crowns, porcelain veneers are wafer thin, strong and durable pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth to change their shape, size, length or color. Porcelain veneers can give you an immediate “Hollywood smile” that you can enjoy for several years.

Dental Implants

If you have gaps in your smile due to one or several missing teeth, you probably don’t enjoy showing off your smile when around others. Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement as implants offer many benefits other tooth replacement options don’t. Dental implants are strong, durable, long-lasting and look, feel and function just like natural teeth.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

If your teeth are misaligned or crooked, you can improve both the appearance and health of your smile by undergoing orthodontic treatment using Invisalign clear removable aligners. When you’re wearing Invisalign, most people won’t even notice you have the aligners in. Plus, since the aligners are removable, you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods while you’re improving your smile as you simply remove the aligners when eating & drinking. You also remove them when it’s time to brush and floss your teeth so you never have to worry about maintaining good oral hygiene the entire time the aligners are gradually moving your teeth into the correct position.
