A smile is the first thing someone sees. Refraining from smiling should not be an option. Luckily, with new technological advancements, smile makeovers are now an option. One main option for your smile makeover is to begin with cosmetic dentistry. Within the cosmetic dental world, there are many procedures that fall under the umbrella. Some of the reasons you may decide on renovating your smile include chipped or cracked teeth, gapping, having a gummy smile, or having crooked teeth. Here are some options you can choose from to fix your smile.
- Veneers is an option that provides a ‘jacket’ for your teeth. You and your dentist can choose what teeth you’d like to cover, and create custom veneers for your teeth. Veneers are specifically designed to fit your perfect size, shape and color tooth or teeth.
- Teeth whitening is exactly as it seems. Dentists do provide a professional option that perfectly whitens your teeth to your chosen shade. This is a great option if you are happy with your teeth, but would like them to be a bit brighter.
- Orthodontic procedures allow patients straight teeth. Many times, people fear smiling because they don’t have a photo ready grin. Braces can alter your teeth alignment into a perfectly straight smirk, and now there are many orthodontic routes.
Another option you can opt for is a smile reconstruction. Depending on how your teeth are faring, you may choose to go with dental implants or dentures. Each option corrects your smile with a new set of teeth. One of the main differences between the two is that dentures are typically not secured, while dental implants are. Dental implants and dentures are created specifically, like veneers, to exactly what you’d like your smile to be. This option is for those who do not have a great dental foundation and need the full reconstruction.
