Options for Cosmetic Treatment
If you’re looking at the range of processes you can ask about, here’s what’s on the menu. Any one of them is effective at correcting issues that have arisen from trauma, natural wear, or developmental issues, and they can be combined into a total smile makeover for patients with multiple concerns.
- Whitening: This process is repeatable, but proper oral care will help you avoid needing a repeat once you reach your desired brightness. It restores the pearly white to your smile, taking away discoloration caused by age and lifestyle.
- Porcelain Veneers: Custom made from tooth-like material, veneers are placed to provide an aesthetic improvement without changes to the teeth or gums. They are placed over top of existing teeth to present the aesthetic you want, and they can be replaced when they are damaged. It’s a great option for whitening combined with chip concealment, and it can even correct the appearance of minor alignment issues.
- Dental Bonding: This process is like a veneer but more versatile and often more cost-effective. It covers chips and cracks, and it can be used to alter the shape of a tooth and improve your bite.
- Gum Contouring: Patients with a gummy smile can get tissue contoured to suit them, providing a better balance between teeth and gums in every smile.
