Want to Feel Confident Again? Cosmetic Dentistry Could Help
Posted on March 13th, 2017
When was the last time you really liked the smile staring back at you when you looked in the mirror? What is stopping you from enjoying confidence in your smile, now? Is it deep staining or discoloration of your teeth, inconsistencies in the size or shape of some of the teeth, or even minor gaps between them? Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry makes it possible to address most imperfections with natural-looking results. That way, you can enjoy the kind of confidence that comes from having a truly beautiful smile!
What Is Wrong with Your Smile?
The first step in devising any cosmetic treatment plan, is first discussing what is bothering you about your smile with your dentist. The more candid you are with your dentist, the more likely you are to enjoy the results.
The great news is that most imperfections can be addressed with cosmetic treatment. For instance:
Inconsistencies in the size or shape of teeth, can often be addressed with veneers or bonding. Veneers create longer-lasting results thanks to the durability of porcelain. However, bonding is faster and more affordable.
While functional alignment problems can only be fixed with orthodontic treatment, if you are simply embarrassed by minor spaces between a few teeth, cosmetic treatment could help to hide those gaps. Both bonding and veneers can often be used to address gaps.
In some cases, the dentist might actually recommend a combination of treatments as part of a customized smile makeover.
