Cosmetic Dentistry: The Art Of Beautiful Smiles
Whether you are dissatisfied with the smile that genetics bestowed on you, or you need to undo some damage caused by oral disease or an injury, cosmetic dentistry can combine art and science to give you the ability to smile with the confidence that you desire.
Many different issues can detract from your smile’s appearance, and cosmetic dentistry can use a variety of tools to correct those deficits. Our interventions give patients durable, effective treatments that are aesthetically pleasing.
Qualities That Can Detract From Your Smile’s Appearance
A beautiful smile features teeth that are bright, white and in good condition. In contrast, a smile can be made less attractive by teeth that are damaged or discolored in any way, such as:
Not only does the condition of the teeth affect your smile’s appearance, but the positioning and proportionality of those teeth (and the gum tissue that frames them) also play a role. Cosmetic dentistry considers all of these elements of an attractive smile and treats any issues that are less than ideal.
The factors that influence your smile’s appearance include things like shape, shade and proportionality, just like a painting, drawing or sculpture would incorporate. Therefore, it is valuable to approach cosmetic dentistry with an artist’s eye. Indeed, we view our patients’ smiles as works of art!
Correcting Your Smile’s Flaws Through Cosmetic Dentistry
If you have any of the smile concerns listed above, you should explore the treatments that might help to resolve them. The first step to get to that point is scheduling a cosmetic dentistry consultation.
After this evaluation in which we examine your smile and discuss your treatment goals with you, we may recommend any of the following interventions:
- Teeth whitening (brief in-office treatments and at-home systems)
- Dental bonding
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental implants
The treatment plan will reflect your unique needs, and any restorations will be designed to match your smile’s specifications.
