Have you had your photo taken recently? When was the last time you took a selfie that you thought was perfect? How many times do you wish for a “live action” retouch tool that would follow you around, brightening your smile each time you opened your mouth? If you’ve been unhappy with your smile in photos, there are things you can do to turn toward a more beautiful smile, beginning by talking to a skilled cosmetic dentist.
A cosmetic dentist can address such issues as the color of your teeth, and can provide professional treatments that can lighten your tooth shade by several levels in only a few in-office visits. Utilizing customized trays loaded with light-activated bleaching agents, your cosmetic dentist can ensure that every surface of your tooth is evenly coated, giving you the consistent, bright results you desire.
Tooth length, shape and alignment can be corrected through the use of dental veneers. Dental veneers are applied directly to a tooth or series of teeth, providing an outer layer that is white, straight and pleasing to the eye. Teeth can be reshaped and cracks and chips can be repaired through the use of composite resin material, crafted by hand and hardened and polished to shine like your natural teeth.
If you’re missing a tooth, a dental bridge or dental implant can be the solution. Filling the area where a tooth used to be is very important in order for you to maintain the correct spacing for the rest of your teeth. Without something to fill the gap, the surrounding teeth will begin to collapse into the open space, leading all the teeth in line to begin to shift, similar to dominos.
If you’re unhappy with your smile, find a skilled cosmetic dentist and get to work creating a smile you’ll love in photos for years to come!
