Determining The Cosmetic Treatment For You

December 29, 2022

Everyone deserves an opportunity to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin, and for many, this process begins with their smile. Indeed, they say a smile is worth a thousand words, and a person’s grin can describe a lot about them. When issues such as stains and smile cracks compromise a person’s appearance, it can be easy to lose confidence. Fortunately, cosmetic dental treatment can help. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI dentist describes the different cosmetic dental options our team has to offer and discusses situations and needs each can address.

Combatting Difficult Stains

It goes without saying that your smile is one of your greatest assets or features. Not only is it often the first thing a person may notice about you, but your smile says a lot about you, your outlook, your friendliness, and more. That being said, nothing is worse than having a noticeable stain or other blemish detract from your grin.

When we take a look at stains, specifically, we see that these are the most common of surface-level dental concerns. Stains can develop in a few different ways, including from the foods and beverages you consume, any use of tobacco products or excessive drinking, and the level of preventive care you practice routinely. Though they may be the most common of concerns, they are relatively simple to treat with cosmetic teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening can be completed in-office or at home with our custom take-home whitening trays. Our team will obtain your smile measurements to create your trays, allowing for a greater level of quality care. For more information about this process and how our team can help, give our office a call.

When You Have a Chipped Tooth

If your smile endures a surface-level chip or crack, dental bonding and contouring might be a solution to consider. This process consists of placing a composite material over the crack or chip and shaping it to mimic your natural tooth’s appearance.

Additionally, gum contouring can be used to help establish an even smile and reduce the appearance of asymmetry. A gummy smile can also lead to greater chances of infection, so treating cosmetic issues can prove beneficial for your oral health as well. Contact our team to learn more today.

Solutions to Cover it All

Finally, but most certainly not least, a smile enduring various cosmetic concerns – from stains to chips, cracks, and gaps – porcelain veneers offer total coverage. Veneers consist of ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth, and they offer solutions for cosmetic issues of varying types.
