What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do for You
General dentistry can help keep your teeth healthy and intact, but the specialty of cosmetic dentistry can eliminate or hide any flaws that affect your smile. A host of treatments are available to take care of discoloration, breakage, bad positioning, and other tooth imperfections. Here is a look at some of the cosmetic treatments that may benefit you.
Gum Reshaping Surgery
If you have gummy smile, in which the gums make the teeth look unusually small by extending too far over the teeth, this surgery can normalize your smile. Uneven gums can also be corrected this way.
These one-sided porcelain shells are bonded over the fronts of teeth to hide imperfections. Virtually all flaws can be concealed this way, and the results can last for decades. Furthermore, the porcelain helps resist future stains.
If your teeth are misshapen or damaged, our dentist can reshape them with bonding and enamel removal. While bonding can be used to build up parts of teeth, enamel removal is sometimes required for the opposite.
Faster and more effective at bleaching teeth than store-bought whiteners are, office whitening can rid the teeth of most surface stains. The procedure takes about one hour and gives results that can last for months, depending on your lifestyle.
If you are unhappy with your smile, you can consult with our dentist to find out which treatments will offer improvement. While you may benefit from individual procedures, our cosmetic dentist may also recommend a smile makeover if you have multiple aesthetic goals.
