How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Improve Your Smile

Smiling is one of the most ideal ways to give that remarkable first impression. But what if your teeth are stained or misaligned, or perhaps you have a gummy smile? Cosmetic dentistry can help to spruce up your smile so that you can always have the confidence to flash your pearly whites no matter what.

Here at Palm Leaf Dental in Ponte Vedra, FL, Dr. Eric Broe, offers a host of cosmetic dentistry procedures, like the ones below, to enhance your smile.

Teeth Bleaching or Whitening

One of the more popular cosmetic dentistry services here in Ponte Vedra FL, it effectively removes stains and discoloration of the teeth. There are whitening solutions that can be bought over-the-counter so you can do it at home. However, if you are after great results, in-office, dentist-supervised teeth bleaching is the best solution.

In-office teeth whitening done by your dentist allows you to benefit from stronger bleaching solutions and extra treatments like special lights, lasers, or heat to deliver a higher intensity of whiteness to your teeth.

Teeth Straightening

There was a time when teeth straightening strictly involved wires and brackets to move your teeth into the right position. This is still one of the more popular procedures done today but now, with the help of technology, there are more options available that will allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly.

The accurate scanning or molding of the teeth remains as the key component to the success of teeth straightening. This is because it will ensure that the orthodontic appliances will fit your teeth perfectly and comfortably. The difference in the treatment procedures lies in how the teeth molds are made. Some use the more traditional way, while others rely on three-dimensional scanning technology.

Gum Contouring

Our gums play a very important role in our smiles. After all, without our gums, there will be nothing to hold our teeth in place. The common problem associated with gums that usually ruin a beautiful smile is that there are too many of them showing when you smile.

It is also possible that there aren’t enough gums because some of the tissues have been lost to periodontal disease. Our gums will naturally shrink and recede as we age but this doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can do nothing about it.

Cosmetic dentistry provides you with a procedure that can help correct these gum problems. The gums can be sculpted using a laser so that the excess tissue can be removed. This gives your teeth a longer and cleaner look. Gum contouring could likewise remove some areas of the gums that are diseased, protect the roots from shrinkage and decay, and strengthen teeth by grafting new gum tissues.
