Are you uncomfortable with your smile? Have you ever wished you could have a smile like a movie star? Well then, cosmetic dentistry is here for you. There are many great advancements in cosmetic techniques and you can take advantage of them today! Where do you begin this life-changing journey? It’s simple. Consult with your dental professional to determine what procedures you want to have. If your smile is dull you can begin with teeth whitening. Over the years, teeth darken from food, smoking and age. Whether you choose the laser or chemical process, you’ll remove stains and discoloration taking years off your smile.
Improving your smile doesn’t stop there. Cosmetic dentistry combines technology with artistry to restore your smile. If your teeth are uneven, chipped or slightly crooked, porcelain veneers work magic. Space age technology is used in the creation of veneers and bonding techniques. The veneers are bonded and shaped to your natural teeth to fill in gaps, smooth unevenness, and whiten teeth. The remarkably strong surface doesn’t discolor and will last for years. It is thin enough that they feel like your own teeth. The application is painless. Porcelain veneers can further improve the appearance of your teeth by replacing your old silver fillings.
You might have more complex cosmetic concerns. Cosmetic dentistry treats those issues as well. You might be bothered by the appearance of excessive gum tissue which doesn’t allow the whole tooth to be seen. This is treated with a procedure called a gum lift which reveals the natural beauty of your teeth. If you suffer from halitosis (bad breath) there are chemical treatments that may reduce or eliminate the problem. If you suffer from the pain of TMJ, your cosmetic dental professional has options to alleviate or reduce the pain. Having any of these procedures will greatly boost your confidence.
When you have determined what procedure you want to have, make sure you learn about the costs involved. Your cosmetic dentistry team will help you understand all of your options. Cosmetic procedures are not covered by most dental insurance plans. However, payment plans are available, enabling you to make affordable monthly payments. You’ll start seeing results immediately which will have you smiling! Free consultations are available before you commit to a plan or treatment. Regardless of your dental concerns, your movie-star smile is waiting for you.
