Living with a flawed smile can have lasting effects on one’s self-esteem. Research has shown that people who feel self-conscious about their smiles have a higher incidence of developing social anxiety and depression. Fortunately, concealing or correcting a flawed smile is possible with cosmetic dental treatments provided by our dentists. From white restorations and cosmetic enhancements to professional teeth whitening, anyone can enjoy an improved appearance. Cosmetic dental treatments are minimally invasive and do not require surgery.
Receiving a professional teeth whitening treatment is far more effective than over-the-counter products such as whitening strips or toothpaste. Moreover, a professional treatment will be safe for tooth enamel, because it does not contain harsh abrasives that can irritate sensitive internal tooth structure. After professional treatment, patients will see a dramatic difference in the color of their smiles. Professional whitening can lift deep stains and brighten a smile up to eight to ten shades.
When teeth are misshapen, worn down, or chipped, restorations and cosmetic enhancements can conceal and cover imperfections to create a white, uniform, and healthy-looking smile. For instance, dental crowns can be placed to build a tooth back to its original shape and size. Crowns can protect internal tooth structure while also producing a tooth that looks white and healthy and free of noticeable imperfections. Restorations like crowns or fillings can be made from white materials like porcelain or composite resin that will perfectly match tooth color.
For those in need of a smile makeover, porcelain veneers are often an excellent option for creating a flawless smile. Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded over the front surface of teeth. Veneers can make a smile that once looked disproportionate, stained or crooked appear white, uniform, and straight. Veneers are made specifically for each person in a dental laboratory. Porcelain is ideal because it resembles the light reflecting qualities and color of natural teeth.
When our patients receive cosmetic treatments, they feel an overwhelming sense of improved self-worth. This is because cosmetic dentistry creates the appearance of a flawless smile without looking unnatural, giving people the confidence to smile and interact with others in social situations.
