Having a smile that you can be proud of can evoke an unwavering sense of confidence that can have a huge impact on your life. If you are confident in your smile, you will be able to engage, communicate and convey that confidence into every aspect of your life. Getting that picture perfect smile is now easier than ever before thanks to a variety of new dental procedures that can correct for a variety of dental flaws. The demand for cosmetic dentistry continues to increase because more and more individuals recognize the value of self-confidence that can be gained from having a great smile.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Easily correct cosmetic flaws such as stains, misshapen teeth, tooth size, chips, cracks, gaps, gum lines and more.

- A fresh new smile can make patients look younger.
These are a very effective method for correcting minor dental blemishes such as chips, stains or slightly crooked teeth. The dentist will craft a thin porcelain shell that matches the patient’s teeth and bond it to the enamel. This is a very simple procedure and the veneers can last for years. This is the best option for patients looking to correct for a few minor flaws.
If a patient suffers from smile wrinkles or facial creases, Botox can be their best friend. Clostridium botulinum (bacteria) produces a toxin that causes paralysis as a side effect. While this may sound scary, it is actually a very safe and tested method to help the facial muscles relax, which decreases wrinkles and creases. Helping clear up your cheeks of any excessive wrinkles can give patients a huge boost in confidence.
Daily habits of the patient may be causing some excessive coloring or staining of their teeth. Drinks, certain foods and smoking have damaging effects on the enamel of the teeth, which leads to discoloration. Teeth whitening procedures counteract the staining and enrich the enamel texture of the tooth. While many individuals decide to go with the do-it-yourself home kits (always consult your dentist before), the best results are always achieved with a plan of procedures put together by a dentist. Zoom Whitening treatment is one of the best treatments out there and patients can expect to see big results in a very short time.
One alternative option to traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes custom-crafted clear retainers to straighten teeth and correct for jaw misalignments. The dentist will take 3-D images and put together a custom plan that ranges from six to twelve months. The flexible retainers are very comfortable and nearly invisible, which makes this option to straighten teeth highly desirable.
6 Month Smile
This is another very popular option for patients seeking to straighten their teeth without traditional orthodontics. Similar to braces, the 6 Month Smile systems utilize clear brackets and special tooth-matching memory wire to bring teeth back into proper alignment. The difference is that 6 Month Smile only takes six months to achieve the results, which is much faster than traditional braces. Each treatment plan is unique to each patient.
