Brighten Your Smile

The color of the teeth’s enamel can be a major point of insecurities for many people. If your teeth are discolored in certain spots or are just an overall dull, yellow, it can make you feel less inclined to grin. A teeth whitening treatment can be one way to brighten your smile’s appearance. If the discoloration is not an external problem, other options says as cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers may be a better way to get the teeth looking brighter.

Your Teeth’s Size and Shape

Many people have teeth that are not all a uniform shape or size. Cosmetic treatments can help make your smile look more balanced and symmetrical. If you have a tooth (or teeth) that are jagged or sharper than the rest, tooth contouring may be a good way to even out your smile.

Gaps and Spacing

Some people find the gap between their front teeth an endearing and individual quality. If you are in that camp, there is no need to make changes to your smile. However, if a gap in your teeth or odd spacing make you feel insecure, there are options to adjust it. If the alignment of your smile is the core issue, orthodontic treatment may be the best course of action for both your smile’s appearance and health.
