Are you interested in finding out how you can boost your smile without spending a fortune? We can show you how even making small changes can have a big impact on the appearance of your teeth. The Cosmetic Dentistry Center offers numerous different cosmetic dental procedures which include crowns, bridges, veneers and orthodontics. These are all pretty sophisticated procedures that use the highest quality materials and the very latest techniques to ensure you get the best possible aesthetic results. However not everyone will need these treatments, and if your teeth and gums are basically healthy and in relatively good shape then you might benefit from having a mini smile makeover.
What Could a Mini Smile Makeover Do for Me?
The answer is quite a lot without the need to empty your wallet. Straightforward procedures such as teeth whitening, dental bonding and contouring and even just replacing old stained fillings or amalgam fillings can make the world of difference.
Professional Tooth Whitening
Professional tooth whitening is designed to safely bleach away the stains on your teeth, and the Cosmetic Dentistry Center uses a very gentle laser teeth whitening system to do this. The procedure is ideal for people who have sensitive teeth as it’s far less likely to produce any unwanted side effects after whitening. The end result should be teeth that look naturally healthy and white, a look that’s often associated with youthfulness and good dental health.
Renewing Old Fillings
If some of your teeth are filled then it could be that these dental fillings on nearing the end of their life. All types of fillings need renewing every so often as they can begin to leak and crumble, increasing the risk of tooth decay. Perhaps you have older style amalgam fillings that create dark areas in your mouth, so removing these and replacing them with cosmetic white fillings that blend in with your natural teeth can make a huge difference. If you have had white fillings for quite some time then you might have noticed them gradually becoming more discolored, and getting them renewed and replaced can boost your smile. In addition, making sure you regularly renew your fillings whenever recommended by your dentist will help protect your dental health, ensuring your natural teeth last for longer.
Dental Bonding and Recontouring
This is a great treatment and can make a huge difference to the way your teeth look in just one simple visit. Dental bonding is ideal for giving teeth that are misshapen or slightly too small, or which have worn edges or chipped edges a more pleasing appearance. It uses tooth colored composite resin which is the same material as used for dental fillings, and which bonds to your natural tooth surfaces extremely well. Once it’s shaped and polished the effects can look incredibly natural and will last for quite a few years. Gum Recontouring is a process that removes a very small amount of tooth enamel and is used when teeth are slightly out of line or if they protrude slightly too much, and when used in combination with dental bonding can give really good results.
If you’re interested in boosting your smile then it’s best to make an appointment at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center to find out more. Your dentist will make sure your teeth are healthy and free from disease, and can tell you whether or not these treatments will work well for you, as well as the costs involved. They can also formulate a treatment plan that will ensure these procedures are carried out in the correct order to give the very best results. This is something that’s important to bear in mind, as teeth whitening needs to be carried out prior to other treatments so the composite resin can be matched to your new tooth color.
