Your smile is the ultimate fashion accessory – you always carry it with you. Hence, many people believe that a “smile makeover” is as important as buying nice clothes or having beautiful hair. And for those who spend their careers in the public eye, beautiful smiles are considered essential.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Any dental work that improves the appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile is referred to as cosmetic dentistry. This form of professional dental care generally focuses on improving your teeth’ color, position, shape, size, alignment, and overall appearance. Although it’s not an essential dental health procedure, cosmetic dentistry treatments can create a positive change in your teeth and smile and restore your confidence.
With new state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry services, the Big Smile Dental team can whiten, straighten, and fill the gaps in your natural teeth. Our experienced dental professionals will ask you questions about your dental goals, discuss the treatment options for your condition, and design a customized plan to help you achieve a brilliant smile. The wide range of dental treatments we provide in our dental practice include:
Porcelain veneers are thin, strong porcelain shells permanently bonded to your teeth using special cement. After removing about half a millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, these porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, changing their shape, color, size, or length. Veneers are generally used to close gaps, repair chipped or worn teeth, make crowded teeth appear straight, fix crooked teeth, or lengthen or lighten discolored teeth.
Braces remain one of the best options for correcting teeth that are rotated, crooked, turned, or have spaces between them. While veneers can make the front of the teeth look great, the back may still be crooked or misaligned, making gum disease very likely if you are not diligent with oral hygiene or regular dental check-ups. Properly aligned teeth and jaws can also help you chew better, improve your smile and even help you avoid serious dental problems in the future. Using some of the newest orthodontic techniques (such as Invisalign), you can get straight, beautiful teeth in no time.
