Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you find yourself hiding your smile because there is something you’d like to change? Cosmetic dentistry can help to transform your smile completely.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help?
Many patients know professional teeth whitening as a cosmetic procedure, but the treatments under the cosmetic dentistry umbrella are numerous.
Cosmetic dentistry can be as simple as undergoing teeth whitening treatment or as detailed as a complete smile makeover.
Through the use of traditional metal braces or Invisalign aligner technology, Orthodontics helps reduce or close spaces in between teeth. If any teeth are rotated or not straight, orthodontics helps to align those teeth properly.
When dealing with internal or intrinsic staining that occurred during childhood due to certain medications, teeth whitening is not effective. However, cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers or dental bonding can be used to change the shape, colour and contouring of your teeth to enhance your smile.
Some patients may complain of having a “gummy” smile or a smile where their gums cover much of the teeth. Gum contouring is another dental procedure where excess gum tissue is removed to allow more tooth structure to show when smiling.
If you’ve previously had metal dental fillings, which are noticeable when you laugh or smile, these can be replaced with white composite dental fillings that are made to match the colour of your teeth.
