Your smile is a major factor in the impression people get when they meet you.
And the good news is that you now don’t have to settle for a smile spoiled by stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth.
Advances in dental treatment mean there is a wide range of choices to help you get the smile that you want. Here are some of the options:
- Tooth whitening (bleaching) can help brighten teeth that have become discolored or stained. It can be done in the dental office or with a system the dentist can give you to use at home.
- Bonding improves the appearance of teeth that have become chipped, broken, cracked, or stained. This is done by bonding tooth-colored materials to the tooth surface.
- Enamel shaping involves modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or contouring enamel.
- Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are used to treat spaces between teeth and teeth that are chipped, stained, or poorly shaped.
- Braces may be needed if teeth are crooked, crowded, or do not meet properly – and not just for kids.
Even small changes can have a big impact on your smile, and so make a huge difference to how you look and how you feel about yourself.
If you’d like an even better smile, your dentist will be able to give you information about the options available.
