When it’s time to improve the appearance of your smile, the number one thing to keep in mind is that you don’t need to settle for a one-size-fits all cosmetic plan. Our Cheney cosmetic dentists work hard to customize our patients’ treatment plans, and, to that end, we assess a patient’s aesthetic needs from a number of different angles and on a number of different levels. That’s what we’re going to be talking about today!
Correct existing damage
The first thing to consider is whether there are any current oral health issues that need to be dealt with. As you would imagine, it is deeply unwise to simply make a smile look better, without making sure the foundation is strong. When this happens, oral health issues inevitably compound and/or reoccur, and the aesthetics of the smile suffer anyway. So, our dental team make it a priority to address existing cavities and gum disease right off the bat.
Address alignment issues
The next thing to take a look at is your dental alignment. If you are one of the many people with gaps between your teeth, or a crooked smile, there are treatments available to improve the way your teeth fit together. Some of these treatments, like Invisalign, are designed to move your natural teeth into better positons. Other options, like dental bonding and veneers cover the patient’s real teeth in order to transform the smile.
Brightening and whitening the smile
Dental stains and discoloration can make your smile look older and more damaged than it really is. The good news is that our dental team offers effective treatments to whiten and brighten your teeth. Professional dental whitening actually lifts stains from the natural tooth structure, while dental bonding and veneers cover unsightly enamel with custom-shaded restorative materials.
It’s crucial that we take your entire smile into account as we pursue your smile transformation. Our Cheney cosmetic dentists will walk you through every step of this process—gives ua call to get started!
