Have you been hiding your smile away because of a damaged tooth? Have you been living with a gummy smile and want to make a change? Do you want to straighten your crooked, misaligned teeth but don’t want to wear clunky metal braces? Whether you’re suffering from one of these issues then you should discuss the benefits of cosmetic surgery with your dentist. Here are a few cosmetic services for you to consider that can improve your smile’s appearance and overall oral health.
Laser Gum Contouring
Your gums can make your teeth appear small and uneven, even if they’re symmetrical. Dentists usually perform gum contouring using a scalpel but your dentist can provide you with a less invasive option. Using an advanced soft-tissue diode laser, your dentist can more accurately remove excessive gum tissue with minimal bleeding and absolutely no sutures afterwards.
Whether you are dealing with a chipped, discolored, or otherwise damaged tooth, your dentist can treat this issue using porcelain veneers. These veneers, which are bonded to the front of your tooth’s surface, can closely imitate your tooth’s natural appearance and strength. Veneers allow your dentist to completely reshape and redesign your smile, improving its overall form and function.
Invisalign is an excellent alternative to metal braces that involves a system of clear aligners that gradually shift and straighten your teeth. The aligners are custom-designed to fit your smile, so they can be comfortably placed over your teeth. They are made from a nearly invisible soft, BPA-free plastic that allows you to discreetly straighten your teeth with little to no irritation. You can also remove the aligners at your convenience, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
