Common Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Improve Your Smile

Having a great smile is not just something that the many teeth whitening toothpaste commercials encourage you to achieve in order to sell their products. The benefits go far beyond that, including boosting your confidence and quite possibly your career and relationships. You should know that cosmetic dentistry offers options that exceed what a whitening toothpaste cannot. Here are a few common cosmetic dentistry options that your dentist can utilize and recommend based on your situation.

common cosmetic dentistry options

  • Professional Tooth Whitening- When toothpaste and other over-the-counter teeth whitening options fail or if you want to avoid the potential dangers involved with some products out there, turn to your dentist for professional tooth whitening.
  • Porcelain Veneers- It is not just about having whiter teeth. If you have a gap between your front teeth or other front teeth that do not look their best due to being uneven, worn down, chipped, stained or otherwise damaged, putting on porcelain veneers can be an ideal solution. They are thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made to fit over your teeth for a natural appearance, making them a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure.
  • Crowns & Bridges- A damaged tooth or an implant is capped by a crown, and a missing tooth can be replaced with a bridge that connects to two crowned teeth.

These are just a few of the options we can utilize here at the dental office of Michael S. Spangler, DDS, PA. We take the time to examine what is affecting your smile and confidence and then make recommendations regarding the cosmetic dentistry that would resolve the problem. When there is more than one option, we carefully explain each so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
