Cosmetic Dentistry: That’s Teeth-Whitening, Right?

If you think cosmetic dentistry is all about a bright, white smile, you are partly right. Teeth that are bright and free of stains can help you look younger, and add confidence to every interaction. But cosmetic dentistry in Southlake, TX doesn’t stop with whiter teeth. Cosmetic dentistry includes a wide variety of enhancements and procedures that can correct problems, from a single problem tooth to a smile makeover that addresses interrelated oral issues in a short time period.

What Cosmetic Things Can Improve a Smile?

Every smile is individual, but there are some general areas of improvement that many of our patients find benefit them. Some cosmetic procedures include:

  • Dental bonding can address awkward spaces between teeth, by adding specially tinted material to  build out missing areas.
  • Tooth contouring can address uneven ridges, small chips or awkward shapes with gentle sculpting
  • Porcelain veneers are thin shells of highly reflective material that fit precisely on the front tooth surfaces. A porcelain veneer can correct the color, shape and size of a tooth, all at the same time

How Do I Know What I Need?

You don’t have to know the what you need to solve your smile complaints, but you do need to bring the issues that bother you to our attention. Once we know what irks you in a photograph, or what you wish would go away, then we can formulate a plan to move you towards the smile you’ve always wanted.
