Tired of Hiding Your Smile? Your Cosmetic Dentist Offers Solutions: Part Two

No one wants to feel self conscious because of her smile, as if she has something to hide. But sometimes it’s tough to know how to correct the issues causing concern, particularly if they are more complicated than simple teeth staining or even a few jagged edges. Fortunately there are lots of ways a cosmetic dentist can help improve the appearance of your teeth and gums, so you can feel more confident showing off your smile!

What Other Options Are There?

  • Gum contouring is one of the least common and most invasive forms of cosmetic dentistry, but it is necessary when the teeth aren’t the cause for concern. If your gum line is asymmetrical or uneven, gum contouring can help straighten it and create a more proportional smile, by revealing more of your beautiful teeth.
  • If your primary issue is spacing problems with your teeth, cosmetic braces make a wonderful solution. Like traditional braces they can help realign teeth, but unlike traditional braces, they allow you to do so without the unsightly or often uncomfortable metal brackets. By using clear plastic aligner trays to slowly shift teeth, cosmetic braces create a nearly seamless way to improve not only the look but also the function of your smile!
  • Sometimes, the only way to correct all of the esthetic concerns is by combining cosmetic treatments as part of a custom smile makeover. Be sure to talk with your dentist about both your concerns and your desires for your smile, before starting any treatment, so the dentist can help determine the most efficient way to help create your ideal smile!
