6 Ways to Transform Your Smile
While some people end up with a picture-perfect smile with zero effort thanks to great genetics, that is not usually the case. Your smile is as unique to you as your fingertips. No two smiles are the same. However, unique doesn’t always mean attractive. If you have quirks or imperfections about your smile that bother you and keep you from having a perfectly balanced smile – there are a number of ways you can achieve the smile of your dreams using cosmetic dentistry.
Our dentists at Walnut Pond Dental in North Annandale, NJ can combine any of the cosmetic dentistry treatments below into one plan to address teeth that are stained, chipped, or uneven to help completely transform your smile. After meeting to discuss your goals, the treatment plan will be tailored by the dentist to your desires to ensure your smile remains unique to you. To schedule your consultation, please contact us online or call (908) 200-7007.
Tooth enamel is porous and susceptible to certain outside factors. If you smoke or regularly consume red wine, coffee, black tea, or chocolate – your teeth may stain or change in color. Teeth that are yellowy, grayish, or dull-looking can prevent teeth from sparkling and looking their best. Whiter teeth can instantly make you look younger, healthier, and more attractive. Depending on the severity of your discoloration and how fast you want results, you can brighten your smile with either in-office whitening or take-home whitening trays.
The edges of teeth can begin to chip and lose their natural shape over time. With tooth contouring, the dentist will gently reshape your teeth to reveal a more symmetrical and balanced smile. Tooth contouring is also beneficially if you have teeth that are excessively long and standout.
When you look at pictures of yourself, what do you notice about your smile? Do you see mostly teeth or do your gums fall below your lip line? Your gums are intended to frame your teeth and enhance their beauty. However, if your gumline is imbalanced or has an excess amount of tissue, it can detract from a straight and healthy smile. By gently contouring your gumline, you can achieve a more balanced and symmetrical smile.
If you have a variety of cosmetic concerns and are looking for an affordable and immediate approach to concealing them – dental bonding is the way to go. By using custom-shaded and carefully molded composite resin, the dentist will cover your damaged teeth. Whether your teeth are chipped, permanently discolored, unevenly spaced, or simply need freshening up – dental bonding can deliver dramatic results in just one office visit.
For patients looking for a longer-lasting approach to dental bonding, we provide custom-made porcelain veneers. While they offer the same benefits as dental bonding, porcelain veneers are intended for stronger durability and can last several decades. Your veneers will be fabricated to match your natural teeth in order to deliver realistic results, yet provide a new and improved smile.
