Modern advances in dental technology give us many corrective options for improving our smile. Several different conditions that were once deemed permanent can now be corrected quickly and easily with cosmetic dentistry.
This is a field which offers many natural looking restorative options for a healthy, beautiful smile. Most corrective alternatives aim to closely mimic the look of natural teeth. With the advances in the modern dental landscape, there is no reason not to have a smile you absolutely love to show off.
Many things can contribute to a dull, lackluster smile. Aging, genetics, medications and even certain foods and drinks can cause teeth to yellow or discolor over time. Professional teeth whitening is the best way to polish and enhance a gorgeous smile. Both in-office and at-home teeth whitening can provide equally powerful and dramatic results, if done under the care of a dentist. Over the counter products are unstable and do not use the same prescription strength ingredients to whiten teeth.
For a smile that needs a little more, porcelain veneers may be the answer. They are wafer-thin shells which are prepared and polished before being bonded to the front surface of teeth in the smile area. Porcelain veneers are fantastic for covering stubborn stains, small chips or even spacing issues. Poorly aligned or slightly crooked teeth can also be corrected with porcelain veneers. They are a discreet and permanent way to enhance the aesthetics of your smile.
Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin to repair chipped, fractured or decayed teeth. It can also be used to change the shape of teeth or close in spaces between teeth. It is a simple cosmetic procedure that can be used on any tooth, but it is very common in the smile area. The composite resin is colored to match neighboring teeth for naturally beautiful results.
