SmileIf you do not love your smile, do not fret. All sorts of dental treatment options are available to enhance the look of your smile, from teeth whitening to contouring, reshaping, bonding, cosmetic gum surgery and beyond. Here is a look at some of the top treatments to beautify your teeth, uplift your confidence and make social interactions that much more enjoyable.

Top treatments to beautify your teeth

Teeth Whitening Brings out the Best in Your Teeth

Teeth become stained and discolored after consuming certain foods and drinks. Even the aging process can thin the enamel along the teeth and cause the yellow dentin below to show. Others are born with teeth that are not a lovely shade of white. A person who is dissatisfied with the look of his or her teeth can ask us about teeth whitening options to fix a smile.

We can whiten the teeth in our office or provide the patient with an at-home teeth whitening kit. Once the patient’s teeth are a beautiful shade of white, the patient will not hesitate to smile wide, laugh and eat in public.

Remedy Cracked and Chipped Teeth With Bonding

People who are self-conscious about a chipped or cracked tooth can take advantage of dental bonding. Dental bonding is an economically efficient oral health solution consisting of either porcelain or composite resin. We can even dye the material to ensure it is the perfect match for the hue of the patient’s unique teeth.

In the end, no one will be able to tell the patient has dental bonding on his or her teeth. The only potential drawback of bonding is it might not last as long as other potential solutions, such as dental veneers.

Dental Implants are the Solution to Your Smile Woes

We can help patients replace damaged, unsightly or missing teeth with a robust material that functions and appears like regular teeth. Dental implants can help people to regain the smile they desire and not be obvious. Typically consisting of titanium, a dental implant replaces the root component of the missing or damaged tooth. The dental implant is then fitted with a crown in order to form a replacement that really does look like a healthy adult tooth.

Tooth-colored Fillings Will Fix Your Smile

It is now possible to fill cavities with fillings that match the hue of the surrounding teeth. These fillings consist of composite materials or porcelain. A dental laboratory carefully crafts these fillings to fit in nicely with the rest of the patient’s mouth. When we apply the filling to the interior portion of a tooth, it is known as an inlay. When we attach one to the biting surface or one or more cusps, it is known as an onlay.

Fix Your Smile With Surgery, Contouring and Reshaping

A minor cosmetic gum surgery will reshape the gum tissue to provide more of a leveled visual. Cosmetic dentists can also use a laser or drill to reshape or smooth out problematic teeth.
