If you’ve been wondering what can improve the condition of your smile to a whiter, brighter, and healthier appearance, cosmetic dental services will help. A smile makeover reinvents your smile into everything you’ve ever hoped for by taking your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, and teeth into consideration. Smile makeovers could involve the use of veneers, tooth implants, teeth whitening, or dental bonding.
Before visiting a cosmetic dentist, it’s important for a patient to decide what they like or don’t like about their smile. It’s very important for a patient to determine what part of their smile reduces their self-esteem or makes them more self-conscious. By clearly communicating these ideas to a cosmetic dentist, an individual will be able to thoroughly discuss the treatments they will need to achieve their goals.
When the teeth are misaligned, or overlapping, gaps are usually visible between the teeth. To straighten the teeth, a patient could choose to use Invisalign or veneers to correct the problem.
Invisalign can straighten the teeth without the use of metal braces. A patient is provided a series of clear retainers they wear to shift the teeth into the correct position. The only time the clear retainer is removed is during meals or brushing the teeth.
Another way to fix misalignment of the teeth, cracks, chips, or discoloration is through the use of veneers. A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain cemented to the front of a tooth. It will hide any flaw and close gaps between the teeth.
A pleasing smile includes teeth that are the same proportion in an individual’s mouth. When the two front teeth are dominant and have the proper width-to-length ratio, an individual’s smile will look its best. Teeth that are longer in appearance will provide an individual with a youthful appearance.
Whatever you don’t like about your teeth or facial area, a cosmetic dentist can correct. The dentist can show you before-and-after photos of patients who have received the same treatments that you might be interested in.
