Many of the smiles that you’ve seen on the big screen actually have a simple secret behind them: porcelain veneers that completely hide multiple flaws on the teeth at once. Veneers are thin shells that are attached to the front of the teeth to improve their color, shape, size, and even spacing. They’re the ideal solution for anyone who wants to make numerous corrections at once, and they can be customized to match your skin color, facial shape, and taste.
Dental crowns can save weakened or damaged teeth from extraction, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t also have a cosmetic benefit. When a crown is made out of porcelain or ceramic material, it can be shaded to match the color of your real enamel. They’ll even reflect light the same way that a natural tooth does. Crowns are useful for fixing misshapen teeth, undersized teeth, and broken teeth. They can also be used to close unsightly gaps.
Veneers are suitable for making extensive corrections, but what if you only have a few minor imperfections to take care of? Cosmetic bonding is a quick and affordable way to hide the small chips, stains, and gaps that might appear on your smile over the years. We’ll apply composite resin over the spot in question and sculpt it so that it resembles your natural enamel as closely as possible. Once it has been hardened and polished, you can trust the material to last for about 10 years.
One common complaint that many people have about their teeth is that they’re not as white as they liked them to be. This is unsurprising, given how often we tend to indulge in coffee, soda, and other staining beverages. With a professional teeth whitening procedure (which can be performed in our dental office or done through a custom-made take-home kit), we can get rid of even the most persistent stains and brighten your smile by about six to eight shades.
An uneven gum line can have a bigger impact on your smile than you think. Some teeth may appear smaller than others, and the symmetry of your grin will be thrown off. We can remove any gum tissue that isn’t needed to re-sculpt the gum line so that it shows just the right amount of teeth. We can use a dental laser to complete the gum recontouring process in a single appointment while keeping any bleeding and swelling to an absolute minimum.
It takes more than just beautiful teeth to make a great smile. The skin around your mouth affects the impact that your pearly whites have. You’ve probably already heard about how Botox and Juvederm can be used to remove wrinkles and leave you looking younger, but you may not have realized that your team at Temple Choice Dental has both the knowledge and experience to help you take full advantage of these procedures! During your consultation, feel free to ask how we can use Botox or Juvederm to improve your smile.
