Some patients may be reluctant to pursue cosmetic dentistry treatment to enhance their smiles out of fear that noticeably artificial results will do just the opposite. Fortunately, the advanced technology and techniques used in today’s practice should put these concerns to rest.
We can draw from a variety of interventions to correct a range of aesthetic flaws in the smile. Your dentist can use a single treatment to deliver the desired look or combine multiple ones in order to overhaul your smile if that aligns with your goals.
Using Innovative Tools and Techniques to Optimize Your Smile’s Appearance
Regardless of your complaint about your smile’s appearance, modern cosmetic dentistry can improve on it, whether it’s professional-strength teeth whitening treatments that outperform over-the-counter products or state-of-the-art materials that can conceal or repair damage to the teeth.
The first step in the process is to schedule a consultation with a provider who specializes in cosmetic dentistry. Such a specialist can determine which treatments are most relevant and beneficial in your case.
Cosmetic Dentistry Interventions: An Overview
The most common cosmetic dentistry treatments typically target improving the shade, condition or alignment of the teeth. After evaluating your case, your dentist may recommend any of the following.
- Teeth whitening – to whiten and brighten teeth
- Veneers – to conceal defects like chips, cracks and deep stains or to make the teeth look properly aligned or proportional in size
- Cosmetic fillings – to repair damage caused by cavities using tooth-colored materials
- Dental bonding – to repair minor chips and cracks
- Porcelain crowns – to restore teeth that have suffered significant damage
- Dental implants – to replace missing teeth
As noted above, these treatments can be delivered individually or in combination. If you are in need of a smile makeover, the treatments may need to be sequenced in a certain way. Your provider will advise you of this.
