Have you lived with crooked, misaligned teeth your entire adult life and want to make a change, but don’t want to deal with clunky metal braces? Do you cover your smile because you’re ashamed of how gummy it is? Have you accidently chipped or otherwise damaged a tooth recently? If you’re suffering from any of these issues, or have other cosmetic problems with your teeth, then you should consult with your dentist immediately. Your dentist can provide you cosmetic services for your smile.
If you are suffering from a chipped, damaged, or discolored tooth your dentist can repair it using porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells that are custom-designed by your dentist using porcelain, which is highly-coveted for its strength and ability to mimic natural tooth structure. These thin shells are then bonded to the front of your teeth, completely reshaping and redesigning your smile.
Your gums can have a profound effect on your smile. They can make your teeth appear small and even if your teeth are symmetrical, your gums can make them look misaligned. Usually, gum contouring is performed using a scalpel. Your dentist can provide you with a better, less invasive option. Using an advanced soft-tissue diode laser, your dentist can remove excessive gum tissue more accurately and with minimal bleeding. This procedure also requires absolutely no sutures afterwards.
ClearCorrect braces are a system of clear aligners that are designed to discreetly and gradually shift and straighten your teeth. Another benefit is that they are removable, allowing you to eat, floss, and brush your teeth, allowing you more comfort and convenience.
