If you’re unhappy with your smile, your dentist may be able to help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile with cosmetic dentistry. Whether your teeth are discolored, misshapen or chipped, your Lansing dentist has several options to give you a smile you’d be proud to show off. And best of all, many types of cosmetic dentistry can be completed in time for your next big interview.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
Teeth Whitening – If you have discolored or stained teeth, a professional tooth whitening can brighten your teeth up to 10 shades in as little as an hour.
Bonding – If you need to fill gaps or brighten teeth, bonding may be the right solution for your teeth. It lasts several years and can look quite natural.
Veneers – These wafer-thin pieces of porcelain are cemented to teeth to change their shape and color. Veneers resist staining and can last many years with proper care and maintenance.
Tooth Contouring – This procedure helps to correct the look of crooked, overlapping, or misshapen teeth by altering the tooth’s position and shape.
Crowns & Bridges – When your tooth needs to be restored or replaced, a crown or bridge may be in order.
How to Decide What’s Right For You?
To decide which type of cosmetic dentistry is right for you, first consult with your dentist about your overall oral health. Before considering cosmetic changes, your Lansing dentist can perform an oral examination and cleaning to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy.
Next, think about what you want to achieve with your smile. Do you just need whiter teeth? Do you have an overlapping or a chipped tooth that’s been bothering you? Perhaps you’re missing a tooth that you’d like to have replaced with an implant or bridge. Once your dentist understands your goals, they will work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs and your budget.
