There are some things in life that you can control, and others that you can’t. It’s important not to stress out about the things you can’t control, but you may also be surprised what you can control. When it comes to the appearance of your smile, you may have more agency than you realize. Cosmetic dentistry can alter the size and shape of your teeth to give you a more pleasing, uniform smile. If your teeth have caused you social discomfort in the past, it’s time to explore your cosmetic dentistry options and give yourself the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted.
Your Teeth Don’t Grow in as a Perfect Smile, and That’s Okay
The way your teeth grow and fit within your mouth is variable. Some of it has to do with genetics. Some of the shape of your smile can be attributed to environmental factors. In any case, it’s incredibly rare that a person’s set of teeth grow into a perfect, uniform smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help you correct for distracting imperfections, giving you a smile that you’re proud to share with the world. You can choose from treatments like dental bonding, dental contouring, and dental veneers to expertly craft your smile.
Dental Veneers Use Your Original Tooth as a Base, While Bonding and Contouring Shape Your Teeth
The difference between these two principle cosmetic treatments is simple. Dental veneers are made of thin sheets of dental porcelain. Your dentist will treat your tooth to create a smooth surface. Then, your dentist will carefully attach the veneers to the surfaces of your teeth, giving you a bright, even smile. Dental bonding and contouring gently shape your natural teeth to create a more uniform appearance. If you have a tooth that is noticeably bigger than the others, you dentist might use contouring to remove a small amount of enamel. If one tooth needs extra volume, dental bonding can add additional shape and mass.
It’s Important to Have Confidence in Your Smile
Only you know how you feel about the state of your smile. For most people though, irregularities in the size and shape of teeth can cause them to feel self-conscious. If you don’t feel comfortable with your teeth, you’re less likely to smile, and that’s a shame! Everyone deserves to have a smile that they love. Cosmetic dental treatments are typically minimally invasive, and they can give you significant results that boost your confidence. Talk to your dentist about these treatments today.
