Imagine what it would be like to have a perfect, flaw-free smile. The power of a beautiful smile shouldn’t be underestimated; after all, having a healthy-looking smile is one of the most sought-after physical assets among people. We use our smiles on a daily basis to convey an array of emotions. A smile can make a person feel accepted and welcome.
Having a flawed smile can make life more difficult for some. If one is embarrassed by their smiles, he or she is more likely to suffer from low self-image and depression. Fortunately, people do not have to suffer from a less-than-perfect smile. Cosmetic dentistry can address imperfections of every nature to produce the appearance of asymmetrical, vibrant smile. Brown Family Dentistry offers some of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today including effective teeth whitening, white (tooth-colored) restorations, and porcelain veneers.
If you’re happy with the shape and positioning of your teeth but are displeased with their color, receiving professional teeth whitening is an excellent way to revamp your smile and your overall appearance. Brown Family Dentistry provides effective yet safe professional teeth whitening. Our team utilizes prescription-grade whitening solutions that lift deep, stubborn stains that have formed below the enamel layer of teeth. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive way to produce dramatic results. Many people enjoy teeth whitening treatments before special events like weddings and parties.
When teeth are worn by years of improper contact, restorations can be used to bring teeth back to their rightful shape and size. If white materials are used to create restorations, patients can enjoy cosmetic benefits of restorations as well. For instance, a porcelain crown is a great method for protecting a damaged tooth and increasing its aesthetic appeal. Crowns fit over teeth like caps so they cover all visible surfaces of a tooth. This means that a crown can conceal everything from intrinsic and extrinsic tooth stains to chips and cracks.
When it comes to producing a total smile makeover, porcelain veneers are one of the best options. These cosmetic enhancements are permanently bonded to the outside of teeth to conceal imperfections like stains, gaps, chips, cracks, and tooth wear. Moreover, bonding multiple veneers over the most visible teeth produces the appearance of a uniform, symmetrical smile where teeth look straight, smooth, and vibrantly white. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin so that they look natural when covering a tooth’s flaws. Receiving porcelain veneers involves two to three office appointments since veneers are custom made in dental laboratories. The placement process is minimally invasive and normally does not require anesthetics.
