smile makeover Have you ever felt self-conscious about your smile? If so, we can help fix that.
Many people have named good smile as the first thing they notice about a potential romantic partner or someone they might consider hiring to work for their company. Great smiles are undoubtedly attractive, but they also boost a person’s confidence exponentially. It’s no wonder that so many people are caught up in how their smiles look; a good smile can do wonders for your quality of life!
Today, there are lots of ways to obtain a radiant smile. Orthodontic restructuring, or wearing braces, is one of the most popular methods of doing so, but aren’t always necessary or even the best treatment option for some patients. In some cases, cosmetic procedures are much more appropriate option. Below are some of the cosmetic procedures available to Newport residents who would like to improve the appearance of their smiles but don’t need intensive restructuring.
Teeth Whitening: Don’t waste your time or money with over-the-counter whitening systems; if they actually work, their whitening effects are short-term at best. An in-office, professional whitening is the only procedure effective against teeth that have yellowed or greyed with age. In one visit, we can brighten teeth by several shades and provide results that will last up to five years.
Porcelain Veneers: These tooth prosthetics can improve a discolored or crooked smile in just two to three dental visits. They can also be used to cover gaps in the teeth. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and will last a lifetime if cared for properly.
Dental Bonding: Using a special resin, this procedure can fix slight imperfections in the teeth (e.g. cracks, chips, discoloration). This cosmetic procedure is a short-term alternative to veneers or crown replacement
Tooth-colored Fillings: This alternative to silver fillings is not only more attractive; it’s much safer. If you’re in need of a filling, don’t risk the mercury poisoning or the possible discoloration from the metal. Go with composite or ceramic fillings. They’re durable, and they look great as well.
Porcelain Crowns: With crown replacement, your dentist will manufacture a new crown made of porcelain and use it to “cap” a damaged tooth. Like veneers, these prosthetics are made to last forever—you just have to take good care of them.
