3 Ways to Get a Better Looking Smile

Posted in Braces

Your smile is your most important accessory, so you should wear it with confidence! However, some people feel rather insecure in their smile. This could be due to the fact that their teeth are not as white or as straight as they would like. How about you? Is there anything about your smile you would like to improve on? Consider just three simple areas by which your smile can be transformed.


Teeth can be made to look younger and cleaner with a simple whitening procedure. Whitening can work in a couple different ways: bleaching the color of the tooth, or removing external stain buildup from foods, drinks, or tobacco use. There are over-the-counter products and in-office or at-home professional treatments available to lighten the color of your teeth.


Braces are not just for kids – they also have a significant effect on fully-developed teeth by bringing them into proper alignment. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean. Depending upon the severity of your case, straightening your teeth can improve the shape of your mouth and the way you talk.


Sometimes, the nature of a tooth’s color does not allow it to be lightened from the outside by whitening. Perhaps you have fractured or unevenly-spaced front teeth which make you shy about smiling. Veneers are a special kind of bonding which can help correct such issues by providing a uniform, white appearance for your front teeth.

There are many treatment options included in the three basic categories mentioned above. Mention your smile concerns to your dentist, and ask about what options are best for your individual needs.
