Going Natural: The Latest Cosmetic Dental Trend

Posted in Teeth Whitening

We all love that perfectly white smile. But we’re seeing a trend these days towards a more natural look. People don’t necessarily want the set of teeth displayed in a toothpaste commercial.

Instead, folks are pointing to specific celebrities with unique features and saying “I want a smile like that.

This has led to individuals celebrating their smile imperfections and even highlighting the features that make them so unique.

As long as your teeth are healthy and positioned so that they stay healthy, you have a lot of artistic freedom.

Want to make a subtle change to your smile sans the row of laser-white “Chiclet teeth”?

If so, here are a couple procedures to help you do that.

Take-Home Teeth Bleaching

This is a little different from the products you’d find on the shelves at your local drugstore. Those over-the-counter items may be cheap, but they also tend to be ineffective and even cause irritation.

Your dentist can set you up with the tools and instructions needed to whiten safely at home. At-home professional teeth whitening systems are customized to your individual set of teeth and let you bleach gradually until you hit just the shade of white you were aiming for.

Dental Bonding

You don’t always have to crown a tooth to change its shape or width or length.

Your dentist can just patch on a little dental material around the edges to modify it. Bonding is fast and requires virtually no drilling, so you don’t even need an injection. The bonding material will be color-matched to blend seamlessly with your tooth.

Learn more about subtle and conservative ways to enhance your smile’s natural beauty by visiting your local dentist.
