Options For Changing Your Smile at Your Cosmetic Dentist

Cosmetic DentistA cosmetic dentist is similar to a magician. This professional has all sorts of creative ways to enhance the look of your smile, bolster your confidence and change your life for the better. Let's take a look at some of the ways a cosmetic dentist can change your smile for the better.

A Cosmetic Dentist can Straighten Those Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth can result from genetics, poor habits and the gradual shifting of teeth. Regardless of the cause of crooked teeth, they are not pleasing to the eyes. Do not assume metal braces are the sole means of straightening the teeth. A cosmetic dentist can provide Invisalign clear aligners to move the teeth into the proper positions. This is the perfect tooth-straightening method for those who are self-conscious about how they look.

Teeth Whitening

If you are dissatisfied with the color of your teeth, it is time to make a change with the help of a cosmetic dentist. Yellow, stained or otherwise discolored teeth do not make a good first impression. Whitening the teeth can be done in a single appointment. Cosmetic dentists use a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel as well as other whitening solutions to beautify the teeth. Once your teeth are a lovely white hue, you will not hesitate to bare those chompers in public. In fact, you might even receive some compliments on your gorgeous teeth.

Teeth Lengthening

If your front teeth are short, your smile will appear a bit weak and aged. However, short teeth can be lengthened with the assistance of your cosmetic dentist. Porcelain veneers can be added to teeth to enhance their aesthetics as well as their durability. Onlookers will not be able to tell these restorations are any different from normal teeth.

A Symmetrical Smile

Studies have show people respond positively to faces that are symmetrical. A symmetrical smile is undoubtedly eye-catching. If your smile lacks symmetry, it is time to take action. All sorts of different cosmetic procedures are available to make your smile look perfectly even from side-to-side and top-to-bottom. Anything from dental contouring to gum contouring and dental bonding will make your smile look perfectly symmetrical.

Fill Those Unsightly Gaps

Gaps between teeth occur as a result of shifting or gum disease. These gaps can ruin an otherwise lovely smile. A cosmetic dentist can remedy the problem by filling the teeth with dental bonding. This is a single-day procedure that applies a tooth-colored material to make a smile look completely normal. Missing teeth can also be remedied by dental implants, bridges, and partials. Dental implants are especially popular as they are reliable and look like real teeth. Dental implants require the placement of a titanium screw within the bone. The bone connects to the screw. A crown that matches the shape and color of normal teeth is placed upon the screw to create an artificial tooth that looks real.
