Creating Even, Straighter Smiles Without Braces

Posted in Veneers

If you’ve always wanted a straighter smile but didn’t want to spend the time necessary to do it with braces – there are other options available! In just a few simple steps, your dentist can help you create a straighter, brighter, even smile that boosts your self-confidence. Here are just a few ways you can make it possible:

Straighter Teeth With Veneers

Dental veneers can give you the most dramatic results of straighter, whiter teeth without any other type of treatment. Since veneers are bonded over the front surface of your tooth, it recreates the appearance of a perfectly sized, straight tooth. Place them side-by-side across your entire smile for dramatic effects. 

Even Teeth with Recontouring

Recontouring is the smoothing of tooth shapes and edges, or adjusting the gumlines along the necks of the teeth. This process is relatively simple and provides quick results. From smoothing out the bumpy edges of your biting surfaces (called “mamelons”) to making teeth look even against one another, recontouring can typically be done without any anesthesia or pain. Gum recontouring can be performed with a laser or surgically. Laser gum recontouring doesn’t require any recover time and produces little discomfort. 

Smoother Edges with Bonding

Some tooth edges can simply be smoothed, while others actually need length added to them. Composite bonding creates an appropriate size and length of tooth simply by being applied to your natural enamel. All bonding is color-matched to resemble the shade of the tooth around it and takes only about an hour or less to complete.

Ask your dentist which type of cosmetic dental option is most appropriate for you and enjoy a straighter smile in no time!
