Artistic, and Non-Invasive, Smile Improvement
If you are diligent about keeping your teeth clean and healthy, then you might also be fairly invested in your smile’s appearance. After all, your smile is one of your most dominant physical features, and may be one of the most influential aspects of your self-confidence. When one or more cosmetic issues affect your smile, and how you feel about it, then an appropriate cosmetic dentistry treatment can address your concerns and restore your confidence in smiling.
The color of your teeth can be the most-easily affected aspect of their appearance. In spite of excellent hygiene, your teeth can develop stains on their outer surface, or enamel, from the food and beverages you consume (called extrinsic stains). You might notice, over time, that your teeth grow duller, and lose some of their youthful exuberance. In most cases, teeth-whitening can erase extrinsic staining and restore your teeth’s brilliance. However, if the stains are too stubborn for whitening, we can recommend another, more effective cosmetic treatment.
The alignment of your teeth not only determines your smile’s visual symmetry; it also affects your bite’s balance, and therefore, the rest of your oral health. For children, orthodontic treatment can help correct malocclusion and guide their permanent teeth into more proper positions. For older teens and adults, we can often straighten smiles without the need for braces with clear, invisible aligners.
Teeth Wear and Tear
Throughout years of biting and chewing your food, and occasionally grinding and clenching against each other, your teeth can eventually begin to show the signs of wear. They may change shape, grow out of alignment, develop minute cracks or fractures, or chip an edge here and there. Depending on the severity of the wear and tear, we can repair your smile’s appearance with a custom-designed procedure, such as dental bonding and contouring or lifelike porcelain veneers.
Full Smile Makeovers
When one or more issues affect your smile’s cosmetic appeal, it may take more than one cosmetic procedure to address them. After a thorough examination, and a personal consultation to discuss your goals and expectations, we can custom-design a full smile makeover to achieve the smile you desire. The aim will be to restore and unveil your smile’s natural beauty while preserving as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible. Your specific smile makeover plan may include any combination of cosmetic procedures that can achieve that goal in the most conservative manner.
