If there’s something about your smile that bothers you, it can make you self-conscious and even reluctant to smile. If your teeth are making you uncomfortable about your appearance, it might be time for you to visit a cosmetic dentist.
A cosmetic dentist specializes in treatment that improves the look of your smile. If you have an aesthetic issue with your teeth, it’s possible that a relatively simple and quick treatment can make a huge difference in your appearance. Some treatments that can make a dramatic improvement include:
One of the easiest ways to spruce up your smile is with teeth whitening. A professional-strength, take-home whitening system can lighten your teeth noticeably within the first few days of treatment. Missing teeth can greatly detract from your appearance, but a dental implant can restore your all-natural look. Other problems, like alignment issues or gaps between the teeth, can be corrected with Invisalign.
The decision to pursue cosmetic work begins when you consult with your cosmetic dentist. You’ll discuss exactly what you don’t like about your smile as well as different approaches and techniques that can address these issues. You might even choose to have more than one treatment, depending upon what changes you’d like to make.
To decide whether cosmetic treatment is right for you, ask to see before and after pictures of previous clients. This gives you an idea of what treatments can accomplish and what your smile might look like after treatment is completed. Also be sure to ask any questions you might have about long-term care of your teeth – for example, how to keep inlays or fillings from staining or cracking – or about how the treatment will affect your everyday routine, such as with Invisalign.
