The Appearance of Your Smile Matters
When it comes to your smile, appearance shouldn’t just be an afterthought. Smiling is one of the most basic human expressions, and it’s vital for virtually every human interaction. When you first meet a person, they are more likely to remember your smile than your words. An attractive smile is the most desired feature in a potential date, and studies of online dating apps shows that smiling profile pictures get the most likes.
In a professional context, people with straight, white teeth are more likely to be offered a job over someone with similar qualifications but crooked, discolored teeth. And they’re more likely to be offered a higher salary. An attractive smile makes people think you are healthy, compassionate, and smart.
When we think of all the functions of your teeth, it’s clear that making an attractive smile is as vital as the others. That’s why we consider all dentistry we perform cosmetic dentistry–if it doesn’t help your smile look more attractive, it’s not a success.
How Would You Like to Improve Your Smile?
There are many common complaints people have about the appearance of their smiles. These include:
- Discolored teeth
- Small or poorly shaped teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Worn teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missing teeth
Cosmetic dentistry can fix all these complaints and more. If you think your smile is beyond help, think again: virtually any smile can be beautiful again with cosmetic dentistry.
For discolored teeth, teeth whitening is the first choice. This removes the stains that can build up on teeth from food, drink, and other exposures. If teeth whitening doesn’t work for your teeth, we can use porcelain veneers to give your teeth the brightness you desire.
Small or Poorly Shaped Teeth
Some people have what we might describe as a gummy smile, which can be corrected with several cosmetic dentistry procedures. Sometimes, people think, this is because their teeth are too small. If that’s the case, we can build up your teeth with porcelain veneers or dental crowns. If your gums are overgrown, laser gum recontouring can help.
