A beautiful smile can brighten not only your day but the day of everyone around you. However, not everyone is born with a perfect set of teeth. If you are looking to improve the appearance of one's smile, here are a few cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help.

  • Teeth Whitening

A popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that has helped many patients improve the appearance of their smile is teeth whitening. Over time, teeth can become discolored as a result of drinking coffee or wine or smoking tobacco products. This can make the smile appear yellowed and dull. However, a dentist can use a laser whitening method or a take-home whitening kit to help patients whiten their teeth by up to eight shades! This makes for a great alternative to professional teeth whitening treatments that can make patients feel uncomfortable while sitting in the dentist's chair.

  • Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the teeth to improve the appearance of the smile. They are custom-made to fit over the front of the teeth and can improve the appearance of a number of imperfections in just a few appointments. They are often used to cover up minor chips, cracks, and stains. They can also improve the look of slightly misaligned or gapped teeth.

Before the dentist places a thin piece of porcelain on the front of the tooth, they have to prepare the tooth by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface. This is done to ensure that the veneer can be bonded securely in place. The dentist will take an impression of the prepared tooth and send it to the dental lab, where they will fabricate a custom-fit veneer that will be applied to the teeth during a second appointment. Once it has been applied, it will be polished so that it blends seamlessly into the smile and feels natural and comfortable.

  • Dental Implants

For patients with missing teeth, dental implants can be an excellent option to restore a smile. A dental implant is a metal post that a dentist implants into the jaw to act as a replacement tooth root. Once the implant has been successfully placed, the dentist covers it with a crown made of porcelain. Porcelain is extremely durable and can resist stains from coffee or red wine. Once in place, the smile will look completely natural, and no one will be able to tell that the tooth loss was ever present.

  • Invisalign®

Having misaligned teeth can negatively impact one's self-confidence and even cause oral health concerns. However, many adults do not want to get traditional braces just to fix cosmetic issues. Thankfully, there is a modern solution available in the form of clear aligners known as Invisalign. This treatment allows patients to achieve straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile without drawing attention to the fact that they have braces or undergoing extensive dental procedures.
