Our smiles are as unique as our fingerprints, so it’s no surprise that they are often the first feature someone notices. After all, who can forget a white, healthy-looking smile? Of course, there are so many issues that can affect the overall appearance of your smile. Even though your smile may be healthy it may not look like it at first glance. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has grown so much over the decades, allowing us to offer everything from minor tweaks to full makeovers.
Through the latest techniques and technologies available, we can treat teeth that suffer from:
- Discolorations and stains
- Chips and cracks
- Misshapen or worn teeth
Through cosmetic dentistry we can do everything from reshaping teeth to closing gaps between teeth to altering the shape of your gums. While subtler changes to your smile may easily be completed with options like dental bonding, tooth reshaping and contouring, or in-office teeth whitening, remember that cosmetic dentistry can also tackle more challenging issues.
While many people consider ways to change the shape, color or size of their teeth, those with gum recession due to gum disease or other problems may be looking for ways to recontour gums. In the past, gum grafting was the surgery of choice; however, this often results in an extensive recovery time, and sometimes more than one procedure is required to treat the issue.
Another popular cosmetic surgery is dental implants, which can be used to replace one or even all of your missing teeth. This cosmetic and restorative treatment is a great option for those with otherwise healthy smiles who want to replace missing teeth for the long term. This cosmetic treatment requires surgery in order to place the implant into the jawbone, where it will naturally fuse together with bone over the course of a couple months. Implants boast more reliability, resilience and longevity than other options like dentures or bridges.
