5 Common Procedures to Improve your Smile

When it comes to improving your smile, there are different procedures you can opt for to bleach your teeth, change the shape, shade, and size of your teeth, replace missing teeth, or alter the alignment of your teeth and bite.

Indeed, the journey to achieving your dream smile is unique to you. During your consultation, your cosmetic dentist will discuss the specific things you would like to change about your smile, and then perform a thorough oral examination to assess the health of your mouth and identify the best sequence of treatments to improve your smiles.

Some of the common cosmetic dental treatments include:

Veneers
These are ultra-thin sheets of medical-grade ceramic material that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth to correct a number of cosmetic dental problems, including cracked or chips, crooked teeth, severe stains, and even noticeable spaces between teeth.

Whitening
Teeth whitening is the simplest treatment, and has a number of options for in-office or at-home teeth bleaching. For instant results, you should consider in-office whitening options. You may also need an at-home bleaching kit to maintain your sparkling smile.

Implants
Implants are the best tooth replacement option that gives you a prosthetic tooth that is nearly as strong as your natural teeth. They can also be used together with dentures or bridges depending on the number of teeth that need replacing.

Crowns
Crowns or tooth caps are tooth-colored porcelain enclosures that are placed around badly broken or heavily filled teeth to restore their strength and appearance.

Invisalign
Uses clear aligners to guide crooked teeth into their correct position. Clear aligner technology can be used to straighten teeth that are rotated, crowded, backward, or twisted forward using precise impressions taken by your dentist.

Before the treatments begin, your cosmetic dentist will use special software to generate digital 3D previews of the expected results of your new smile to keep your expectations realistic. This process of cosmetic imaging increases your chances of satisfaction with the procedure.
