Picture your favorite movie star or celebrity. More than likely, you’re thinking of a person known for their flawless and attractive appearance. Perhaps you envy that celebrity’s seemingly perfect smile. You might even think that person was just blessed with straight, white teeth. Contrary to these beliefs, most people with flawless, attractive teeth have benefited from some form of cosmetic dentistry. Using the very same procedures and techniques available to the rich and famous, your cosmetic dentist can transform your smile, too. The appearance of virtually any smile imperfection can be improved with cosmetic dental procedures.
While cosmetic dental work certainly has practical applications such as improving the overall health and functionality of teeth, improving a patient’s smile is also an art form.
While cosmetic dental work certainly has practical applications such as improving the overall health and functionality of teeth, improving a patient’s smile is also an art form. When designing your new smile, your dentist will take into account your unique features, the shape and size of your mouth, and the ratio of gum tissue to teeth. Blending state-of-the-art dental care with artistry, your dentist will help you achieve the smile you have always wished for.
During your consultation, your cosmetic dentist will determine the best methods for addressing your smile flaws. For many patients, short one-visit procedures such as laser teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding are the best methods for brightening, whitening, and concealing flaws. Other methods for improving a flawed smile may include replacing old metal dental work with natural-looking white restorations such as porcelain crowns and tooth-colored fillings.
For patients with misaligned and crooked teeth, Invisalign clear braces are an inconspicuous method for straightening teeth over time. Using a series of custom-fitted, clear aligners, patients can enjoy a straighter smile without unsightly metal brackets and ligatures.
Your cosmetic dentist also offers porcelain veneers for a total smile makeover. These wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that closely resemble natural teeth, are bonded over the front of teeth to create a flawless smile that is free of chips, gaps, and stains.
Depending on your needs and the current condition of your teeth, our team will design a plan that meets your needs and produces a smile that you will fill confident showing off. To learn more or schedule your consultation, call our office at 312-491-9494 today.
