There are few feelings that can compare to having pride in your smile. As you show it, and see your smile reflected in the smiles of those around you, your own self confidence can grow, which can make you even more proud of your smile.
However, if you’re unhappy with your smile’s appearance, then we can help restore the feeling with an appropriate cosmetic dentistry treatment, developed according to your specific needs and preferences. To find out how, take our short cosmetic smile quiz below!
A Quiz on Cosmetic Smile Improvement
1.) Why are my teeth stained?
- Poor hygiene
- Side effect of medication
- Bacterial infection
- Any of the above
2.) What options do I have to fix my chipped tooth?
- Porcelain dental crown
- Porcelain veneer
- Composite dental bonding
- Any of the above
3.) If I have several cosmetic issues, will I need a different treatment for each issue?
1.) Any of the above—There are several reasons why teeth stain, from excessive plaque buildup and leftover food molecules, to a developing tooth infection, and even as a side effect of some medications. Whether your teeth’s stains develop on the surface (extrinsic) or within the tooth itself (intrinsic) will influence what kind of cosmetic treatment can best fix them.
2.) Any of the above—A chipped tooth can be a minor cosmetic issue or a major restorative issue, depending on how much of your tooth’s structure is damaged. If it’s structurally weak, then we might recommend a lifelike porcelain dental crown to cap and protect the tooth. If the damage is minor, then composite bonding or a porcelain veneer can offer a less invasive solution.
3.) No (usually)—The good thing about modern cosmetic dentistry is that most treatments are designed to offer dramatic results with minimal alterations to your natural tooth structure. In most cases, we can custom-design a smile-makeover plan that can address several different issues with just one or two procedures.
