Cosmetic Dentistry: Will my smile still look natural?
Cosmetic dentistry—commonly called a smile makeover—is becoming increasingly popular. More than likely, at least one of your neighbors or coworkers has improved his or her smile through cosmetic dental services. With cosmetic procedures, your dentist can correct chipped, gapped, stained, and crooked teeth while also giving you a uniform and attractive smile.
Many patients considering improving their smiles by paying a visit to their cosmetic dentist wonder if these types of procedures will produce unnatural-looking results. The truth is that enhancing a smile with porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or tooth-colored fillings are tailored to the unique situation of each patient. Since cosmetic dentistry focuses on the individual needs of a patient, your dentist will address your specific concerns to ensure your satisfaction.
In many cases, a smile makeover can actually make a patient’s teeth look more natural. For example, your cosmetic dentist can remove old metal dental work such as gold crowns or dark amalgam fillings and replace these restorations with natural-looking alternatives such as composite resin and porcelain.
Veneers, white crowns, and even dental implants utilize high quality porcelain materials that closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth. White restorations are practically undetectable, making them much more natural-looking than unsightly metals and amalgam. Furthermore, each of these procedures allows for your dentist to choose shades of porcelain that will seamlessly blend with your desired shade of white and the rest of your teeth.
Another popular and affordable option for improving your smile is teeth whitening. Patients may choose between in-office whitening or clinical-strength take home kits. Each of these professional whitening options can whiten and brighten a smile up to eight shades. Because these methods utilize potent bleaching agents, permanent stains caused by age, dark foods and beverages, and tobacco use will uniformly disappear leaving behind a healthy, illustrious smile.
Because every patient’s needs differ, a consultation with your dentist will help you determine which procedure(s) is right for you. Without compromising a natural appearance, a smile makeover has the ability to drastically improve your self-esteem and confidence.
