Have you fallen out of love with your smile? It’s not your fault! Imperfections in the appearance of your teeth are common and totally natural. You may have some strange grooves on the surfaces of your teeth, or maybe some sharp edges. Some of your teeth may be disproportionately sized. Of course, staining of the enamel is a common problem too. All of these little imperfections can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. The good news is, cosmetic dentistry can help. Cosmetic options like veneers, teeth whitening, and contouring will shape and brighten your smile. With cosmetic solutions provided by your dentist, you can create a smile that makes you feel confident.
Explore Porcelain Veneers as a Cosmetic Solution
Porcelain dental veneers can compensate for a variety of cosmetic issues. Veneers are made from thin sheets of dental porcelain. Your dentist can fabricate your veneers to account for disproportionately sized teeth, teeth with a strange shape, and even teeth that have experienced staining. If whitening treatment can’t remove a stubborn stain, veneers may help. Your dentist will set these porcelain sheets are set on your existing teeth, giving you an ideal, homogeneous appearance to your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening Can Remove Enamel Stains
Almost everyone experiences some level of staining in their enamel. The foods you eat and foods you drink leave traces behind over time. Professional whitening can remove these enamel stains, giving your teeth a bright, white shine. If you’ve used over-the-counter whitening treatment before with little success, talk to your dentist about a more robust option. Professional whitening options still include an at-home use option, so you can perform the treatment on your schedule.
Contouring Is Another Way to Adjust the Shape of Your Teeth
Very few people are born with uniform teeth. Often, one tooth will be a different shape than the others, or a pair of teeth will be significantly longer. These slight irregularities in shape and size can be corrected with bonding and contouring. Dental bonding uses resin to add volumes and shape to a tooth, while contouring gently shapes the existing enamel to create a more uniform appearance. Using these two techniques together, your dentist can give you the pleasing smile you’re after.
