There are lots of good reasons to want to improve the appearance of your smile. Maybe your career requires you to interact confidently with your associates. Or perhaps you have a major life event like a wedding, reunion, or graduation coming up, and you want to look your best in all the photos.
But you really don’t need a reason to want a better smile beyond the desire to present your face to the world. Cosmetic dentistry has opened up a world of possibilities for improving your appearance. Advances in dental technology, materials, and techniques allow your cosmetic dentist in Columbia, IL to personalize a smile makeover to help you achieve your goals.
Let’s take a look at the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available and what problems they address.
Have your teeth taken on a dull or stained appearance? Renewing your smile is as easy as professional teeth whitening, and customized take-home kits make the process convenient and deliver brilliant results in about two weeks.
Dental Bonding and Porcelain Veneers
Dental bonding is a technique your dentist uses a composite filling material to build up portions of a tooth to improve its appearance. It’s an excellent option for problems like small chips or breaks, filling in minor gaps, and concealing a severely stained tooth.
Porcelain veneers do the same things that bonding does and more. A veneer is a shell of porcelain that is bonded to the front of your teeth to create a new surface. Since veneers conceal what’s beneath them, they are perfect for correcting chipped or broken teeth and altering their shape, size, or positioning for a more harmonious appearance.
When you think of cosmetic dentistry, you may not consider restorations like tooth-colored fillings or porcelain dental crowns. However, both treatments not only restore the health of your smile, but they also improve your appearance because they look natural and blend seamlessly with your smile.
