Improve your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

[ 0 ] October 17, 2015 |


More than ever before your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but a beautiful white and bright smile defines you.
In the midst of the selfie generation and social media of all kinds, we are constantly sending out photos of ourselves to friends and family. Maybe even more importantly, photos are used for professional purposes on other sites. They become like first impressions to a prospective employer similar to the handshake in an interview.
If you are not happy with the smile you see in your mirror, there are many ways to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Let’s look at some of the best ways to achieve that spectacular smile.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Porcelain Veneers

You don’t have to live with broken, misaligned, or chipped teeth. Dark spots can be masked and no one will be able to see what is underneath. A porcelain veneer mimics perfectly shaped and natural teeth. A veneer is an ultra-thin sheet of porcelain bonded to your front teeth, and it can be the perfect solution when one or several teeth need repair.
Veneers are especially natural looking because porcelain reflects light the same as real teeth do, and your dentist can match the porcelain to the color of natural teeth. It can be a simple two-step process. First (after a minimal amount or no shaping of your teeth) an impression is made of your existing teeth to create the perfect veneer. Once the veneer is created, it is bonded to your teeth. It is a simple procedure but the results are spectacular.

Veneers can fix:
• Worn down teeth
• Chipped teeth
• Crooked or misaligned teeth
• Hide spaces between teeth
• Misshaped teeth
They do not stain, are strong and last a very long time. You walk out of the office with an instantly beautiful new smile.

Porcelain Inlays

If you are still living with those old silver fillings, now you can update your look with a porcelain inlay or onlay. That same natural look of porcelain can replace old fillings. When you smile and laugh out loud those silver fillings will be gone and your fillings will be camouflaged by the natural look of porcelain.


Bonding can be utilized for many of the same issues as veneers. Resin is the material employed and it is less expensive than porcelain. They can stain over time or begin to look dull, but they are an appealing option for improving your smile, and are very conservative.

Instead of Braces: Invisalign

If you are an adult who had braces as a child, but your teeth have shifted, this type of cosmetic dentistry might be right for you. If you never had braces, this is the perfect way to straighten your misaligned teeth with minimal discomfort, and no one will even notice.
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic shiny aligners. It is an effective treatment for adults who wish to straighten their teeth without noticeable metal braces. Some of the other advantages of Invisalign braces are:
• They are removable making them easier to clean than metal braces
• They are comfortable because they are smooth against your gums and cheeks
• You take them out when you are eating so they don’t trap food like metal braces and cause other issues
• Removing them allows you to eat foods like popcorn and certain kinds of candy, impossible with metal braces
There are some restrictions. While wearing the braces you cannot drink any liquids which contain sugar or acid, and you may only drink cool water. They must be worn for 22 hours a day.
Usually it will take approximated 18 months to complete the treatment with new aligners being swapped out as you progress.
Regardless whether your smile includes misaligned teeth, chipped or broken teeth, stained and yellowed teeth, it is always best to trust your smile to professionals like those at Dental Care Group.
