When most people think of the dentist they think of fillings and drills, scaling and pain, but it doesn’t have to be like that. Your dentist wants your smile to look its best so you feel as confident as possible. If you aren’t entirely sure what is involved in cosmetic dentistry, here are a few procedures you could have done to make your smile look its best.
This is one of the quickest and most cost effective ways to improve the look of your smile. If you don’t have any misshapen or missing teeth then maybe a teeth whitening treatment is just what you need. Some dentists offer in office treatments, while others may make molds of your teeth and send you home with the product to whiten your teeth.
If you have misshapen teeth, or you want to have that “Hollywood smile”, then veneers might be a great option for you. They are thin but resilient, and are made of porcelain or resin placed to cover the surfaces of your front teeth. Your dentist will trim a minor amount of enamel from your tooth and bond the veneer to that tooth. Depending on your desired look, you could do one, two or multiple teeth.
Dental bonding is a tooth coloured filling used to reshape or even out teeth that may have been chipped or damaged. This option is a great cosmetic alternative to veneers as it is relatively cost effective and durable.
Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to make you feel like a superstar with a million dollar smile. Some treatment options involve a little more time in the dental chair, while others can be completed in the comfort of your own home.
