Perfectly Beautiful

In the past, many people simply lived with crooked teeth. Chips and stains were nuisances to be endured. Quite a few people were happy to still have all or most of their teeth; having them straight and well-proportioned may have seemed like a dream.

Fast forward to the present. There have never been more ways to have perfect looking teeth. Most cosmetic techniques have improved dramatically over the last several years. No matter what the problem, there is now a remedy to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Closing the gap

Gaps between teeth dont necessarily mean years of braces. Many small gaps can be closed with bonding or covered with porcelain veneers colored to match your natural teeth. Some of these procedures can be completed in just a few visits.

Chips and breaks

Teeth that have been chipped can often be treated with composite material colored to match your own teeth. A broken tooth may require a crown. Crowns that are displayed when you smile are comprised of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal to mimic your natural smile.

Whiten and Brighten

Whitening can be achieved in a number of ways. When the teeth are stained, but otherwise healthy, whitening procedures can lighten them a number of shades. Ask your dentist about the best method to lighten your smile.

Too much gum

When gums protrude too far over the teeth, the smile is marred. To expose more of the tooth, a procedure called “crown lengthening” can be performed. The goal of this treatment is to create a better balance between gum and tooth, resulting in a more attractive look.
