Cosmetic Dental Procedures: Will my smile look natural?


Your smile can be a very valuable asset. But if your teeth are stained, chipped, crooked, misshapen, or missing, you are probably hiding your smile instead of showing it off. A consultation with a cosmetic dentist can reveal the many procedures available that can enhance your appearance and look totally natural.

Having your teeth cleaned and examined by a dental professional will help to identify problem areas. There are solutions that can be completed quickly; and there are treatments that may take longer. The result will be a smile makeover of which you can proud.

If staining or discolored dental enamel are not improved with your six month cleaning, you may opt for teeth whitening. Take home kits acquired from your cosmetic dentist contain the most powerful whitening agents available. In addition, you have the professional advice to guide you for the best outcome. Whitening kits purchased online or at the drugstore cannot compare.

For decades the solution for repairing dental decay was silver amalgam. No matter where your cavity appeared, there was only one option. Eventually the silver darkened and no matter where this filling is located in your mouth, it is visible when smiling. Today composite resin is taking the place of amalgam.

Composite is a tooth colored plastic material that can be used to correct many dental maladies. Cavities can be treated actually removing much less of your natural tooth. Removing less of the biological tooth allows a much stronger base to remain. And since the resin is tooth colored, the repair is virtually undetectable. Many patients are choosing to have amalgam fillings replaced with composite fillings as a cosmetic makeover.

Crooked teeth, a cross bite, over bite, or under bite are not just cosmetic concerns. Straight teeth are more likely to be healthy teeth as there are fewer areas for bacteria to hide from your daily brushing and flossing. Invisalign clear aligners provide a means to correct many orthodontic problems while remaining almost invisible. And since they are removable, Invisalign aligners allow you to have your teeth straightened while enjoying all the foods you love.

Missing teeth have several solutions; however, the one that allows you to look, feel, and perform as natural as your biological teeth are with dental implants.
