Having confidence in your smile is vital in leading a happy life. It’s hard to enjoy yourself when you’re constantly thinking about hiding your smile due to uneven or excessive gum tissue, cavities, or discolored teeth. If you are suffering from any of these issues, there are several cosmetic dentistry services to consider. Taking advantage of these options can help boost your confidence in your smile and can help improve your overall mental well-being.
Your gums play a large part in your smile’s appearance. Having excessive or uneven gums can detract heavily from your smile’s beauty. These gum issues can arise for a number of reasons, such as a result of medications or medical conditions. Your dentist can reshape your gum line and create a more symmetrical and appealing smile using gum contouring.
Generally, this procedure is done using a scalpel, but your dentist may be able to utilize advanced soft-tissue diode laser technology for a more comfortable and precise surgery, with minimal bleeding and no sutures involved.
Veneers are thin, custom-designed shells made of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth or multiple teeth. These can be used to reshape and redesign your smile, providing improved structure and appearance. Sometimes, they can even correct minor tooth misalignment, helping you avoid having to wear braces as well.
Your dentist can fill cavities or blemishes on your teeth using a tooth-colored resin (made of acrylic and quartz-like particles) that closely resembles the color and texture of your natural teeth. Not only does it look natural but it provides a tight seal against oral bacteria. It’s a great, less invasive alternative to a dental crown or porcelain veneer.
