How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Get You Smiling Brighter

If you have concerns about your smile, you’re not alone. Many people feel self-conscious due to imperfections in their teeth, their alignment, or even their gum tissue. Whether it is staining, cracks, jagged edges or gaps between your teeth that are causing you to hide your smile, though, cosmetic dentistry could help. We offer our clients a wide-range of treatments, so they can leave our office feeling great about themselves and their bright, shining smiles. Let us address a few commonly asked questions to help you learn what cosmetic dentistry could do for you.

What can be done to fix my small teeth?

Veneers and dental bonding can both help to make your teeth look more proportional. Veneers are made of durable, stain-resistant porcelain, while bonding uses a composite resin to fill gaps and create uniformity in your teeth’s size and shape. Both options offer unique benefits. During consultation we can help you determine which is the best cosmetic solution for you.

How long does cosmetic treatment take?

The length of treatment is entirely dependent on the cosmetic procedure(s) you choose. Dental bonding can often be completed in as little as an hour, while veneers may require several appointments in order to have the veneers properly prepared and custom-fit for you.

Can my dark tooth stains be removed?

Whitening is one of the most affordable ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Many surface stains can be removed through professional whitening, helping you to reach your ideal brightness. That said, if whitening will not work for your teeth, veneers and bonding can effectively cover stains.

Am I stuck with a gummy smile?

There’s no reason to settle for a smile with too much gum tissue. Gum contouring allows us to sculpt your gum tissue to better suit your smile. This surgery is performed with a laser, that actually seals as we go, so recovery time is minimal.

Are veneers going to look fake?

Porcelain veneers are specially crafted to fit your smile, so the end result will be natural-looking, just improved.
