How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Overcome Dental Stigma

There’s no confidence booster like a straight, white smile. It can be difficult to approach the day with confidence if your teeth are crooked, stained, or damaged, or you’re missing one or multiple teeth. Fortunately, Cosmetic Dentistry treatment can offer the smile makeover you’ve always wanted. Here’s what to know. 

Address Stained or Discolored Teeth.

Whether your teeth are naturally a darker shade or they’ve become stained over the years, teeth whitening can help you achieve a brighter, whiter, more youthful-looking smile. Depending on your needs, veneers or crowns are another option to help address discoloration or staining. After whitening, you’ll be able to smile brightly without worrying about what others think. 

Restore Chipped or Damaged Teeth.

If you have teeth that are uneven in shape or that are chipped or discolored, bonding or veneers can provide the dental aesthetics you’re after. Bonding involves placing a tooth-colored resin over the affected tooth or teeth, while veneers are custom-made shells that fit over the top of your existing teeth. With your new straight, even smile, you’ll be able to bring your A-game to both your professional and social lives.

Fix Gaps Between Your Teeth.

If you’re missing teeth or have gaps in your smile, there are several cosmetic dentistry options that may help. Implants can replace missing teeth, while braces or Invisalign® can be used to address crowding or misaligned teeth. Veneers can also help reduce the appearance of gaps between teeth, giving you the megawatt smile you’ve always dreamed of. 

Reduce a “Gummy” Smile Via Cosmetic Dentistry.

Gummy smiles, where too much of the gumline is exposed when smiling, can affect confidence. Gum contouring, also known as a gingivectomy, is a procedure that involves cutting away excess gum using a laser. For those experiencing gumline recession, gum transplants can be an effective way to restore your smile – helping you feel confident in any social situation.
