A Few Conservative Ways to Improve Your Smile

A healthy and disease-free smile is something you should be proud of, but if your smile’s appearance isn’t as optimal as its health, then it can still negatively impact your confidence. Cosmetic dentistry involves several highly customizable solutions to improving your smile’s appearance, often with a focus on keeping your treatment plan as minimally invasive as possible. If your teeth are stained, chipped, misshapen, slightly uneven, or more, then learn how the right cosmetic dental procedure can help create the smile you want.

Brightening your stained teeth

Teeth stains are common, and fortunately, they don’t always indicate a serious underlying issue with your dental health. In fact, they can develop naturally, even when your teeth are otherwise healthy. In many cases, professional teeth-whitening can quickly and effectively erase them and restore your smile’s youthful vibrance. Because teeth-whitening is a topical solution that you apply to your teeth’s surfaces, it doesn’t require any changes to your tooth structure. Also, it can be conveniently applied at home or during a single visit to your dentist’s office.

Correcting structural blemishes

Things like chipped or worn edges, light cracks in your tooth enamel or structure, or teeth with pieces broken off of them can not only affect your smile’s appearance, but also your oral health. Depending on the extent of the damage, it can lead to tooth pain, impact your bite’s function, and grow worse the longer it’s left untreated. With customized solutions such as tooth-colored bonding, porcelain veneers, and custom-designed dental crowns, you have a wide range of options for improving your tooth. Your restoration can restore it’s full, healthy appearance while also preventing the damage from growing worse.

Making your smile symmetrical

Some teeth may not be structurally damaged, but can still affect your smile’s appearance due to certain conditions. If a tooth seems too large or small, overlaps a neighboring tooth, juts out slightly, or more, it can make the rest of your smile asymmetrical. If your teeth aren’t severely crooked and don’t require orthodontic treatment, then one or more cosmetic treatments may be able to correct the specific tooth blemishes that are affecting its contour. For example, porcelain veneers can completely transform the front surfaces of your teeth, and only require minimal tooth preparation before being bonded to them.
