Five Cosmetic Treatments for a Dazzling Smile

Curious about what your smile makeover options are? While most people opt for a combination of various cosmetic dental treatments, some find one that works well on its own and provides everything that they’re looking for.

Here are five that you might want to consider:

Veneers: Dental veneers offer the most life-changing, dramatic cosmetic enhancement in modern dentistry. You can use veneers to make your teeth look straighter, whiter, and properly shaped. They’re bonded directly over the front of your teeth, hiding what’s tucked away behind them. 

Tooth Bonding and Recontouring: Small gaps and chips in your teeth don’t necessarily mean that you need veneers. Conservative bonding or adjustment to your tooth shape can provide significant results without requiring more extensive treatment. 

Whitening Your Teeth: Brighter tooth enamel can make a person’s smile look more youthful and appealing. Depending on how much time you have on hand and the level of brightness you want to achieve, the best choices are a professional take-home kit or in-office laser whitening treatment. 

Getting Braces: Tooth colored braces and clear aligners help to straighten your teeth so that they are easier to care for and won’t wear down so much. There are also “cosmetic” braces available that only straighten your front teeth (taking less time to complete.) 

Gum Recontouring: The shape of your gum tissue can make your teeth look short or even lopsided. Adjusting your gumlines can give you a fuller, even smile and erase “gummy” grins.

Talk to your dentist today about your top choices, to see how you could have a beautiful smile in no time.
