What does it take to have a perfect smile? If you are feeling insecure because of your teeth, a cosmetic dentist can help bring your smile to the level of perfection. Your dentist is the perfect person to ask which cosmetic dentist procedure is right for you.
Let’s talk about the most popular cosmetic dentistry services that can help you achieve smile perfection.
Zoom! Tooth Whitening
A whiter smile is a brighter and more youthful-looking smile. If your teeth are looking yellow due to drinking tea or wine or smoking, then in-office whitening is the quickest and most effective way to whiten your smile. In just a single visit, the dentist can whiten your teeth up to seven shades lighter. You leave the clinic with a noticeably whiter and brighter smile. There is currently no whitening product you can buy or use at home that can produce the same results as in-office Zoom teeth whitening.
Crooked or misaligned teeth can make anyone feel self-conscious. In this day and age, where selfies and group pictures have become a part of daily life, insecurity about your smile can force you to miss out on fully participating with your loved ones and friends. A cosmetic dentist can help straighten your crooked teeth with Invisalign clear aligner therapy. If traditional metal braces have put you off from getting treatment for your crooked teeth, Invisalign is a discreet teeth-straightening solution. Invisalign also produces fast results. Crooked or misaligned teeth are not just a cosmetic issue, as it can increase the risk of dental issues, as crooked teeth wear out faster and are difficult to clean.
Perhaps the most obvious cosmetic issue is missing teeth. Dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth. The dentist surgically implants titanium posts into your jawbone, attaches posts to it, and places a crown over it, so now there is a tooth where there once wasn’t. If you have more than one missing tooth, the dentist may use bridges instead. Dental implants can restore your confidence in your smile. With the help of dental implants, you can smile as wide as you can without the fear of revealing missing teeth.
Crowns and Veneers
Discolored, crooked, chipped, or weakened teeth can be fixed with either dental crowns or veneers. With dental crowns, a crown is placed over the tooth to fix the imperfection and protect the tooth. With veneers, a thin outer shell is bonded to your tooth. A veneer may not be ideal if the problem is chipped corners of the tooth or if the tooth is weakened. They are ideal for fixing discolored or stained teeth or addressing tooth length irregularities. Dental crowns and veneers are usually made with durable materials such as porcelain.
