How Can I Change the Shape of My Teeth?

It’s very common for folks to be dissatisfied with the shape of their natural teeth. Is this something that bothers you, as well?

The good news is that you do have options for changing the shape of your teeth! There’s no need to hide behind your hand when you smile. With a little cosmetic help, your smile could experience a total transformation.

Dental Veneers: The First Choice

Dental veneers are thin “shells” placed over the front of top front teeth. These “false fronts” can make your smile look brand new! Veneers are customized to give your teeth whatever shape and color you desire.

A Little Bonding Goes a Long Way

Dental bonding is a fast and economical way to adjust teeth. It doesn’t even require the use of anesthetic. In one quick appointment, your dentist will use a restoration material to reshape one or more teeth. Bonding is ideal for front teeth that have a small chip or fracture.

Dental Crowns for Strength and Beauty

If your tooth is shaped or damaged in a way that compromises its strength, then a dental crown is probably the way to go. Crowns replace the entire outer layer of your tooth. Doing this gives your teeth maximum strength and protection.

Crowns can be customized to match the shape and color of your other teeth.

Is Spacing the Problem?

Do your teeth just look small because they are widely spaced?

Cosmetic orthodontia could be your solution. Closing up a few gaps will bring your teeth into an even line, giving you a smile to be proud of!

The best way to find out which smile-enhancing method is right for you is to visit your dentist. A better smile is only one consultation away!
