Research shows that your smile is the first thing noticed when you meet someone, but many people are self-conscious of their smiles. Previous consumer studies have proved that a beautiful smile will make you more attractive. But according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), research also shows a new smile will make you appear more intelligent, interesting, and successful to others as well. It makes an incredible difference in your smile when you are confident enough to show off your teeth.
You may be self-conscious due to dark filling spots, a chipped or broken tooth, or even missing teeth. Others are concerned with discoloration, or white spots. You might also have issues with undersized teeth, crowding or space issues. If you discover that you aren’t smiling as widely or whole-heartedly as you used to, you should have a candid conversation with your dentist.
COSMETIC PROCEDURES THAT CAN ENHANCE YOUR SMILE
We have lots of options at our disposal that can make you feel great about your teeth and your smile again. Some of these issues are relatively simple fixes.
The whitening procedure is one of the quickest, safest, and most effective means to improve the color of your teeth. We can help you choose the best whitening method to suit your smile, be it over the counter options, trays, or in-office techniques. We also offer enamel microbrasion, for white or discolored spots on your teeth. For teeth that have discolored after a root canal or other trauma, we also have internal bleaching to restore tooth color.
To help with the overall appearance of your smile, we also work with composite veneer, or “chair side bonding,” as well as bonding with composite (tooth colored filling material). This can help correct issues with chipped or broken teeth, gaps or spaces in a smile, adjusting the shape or length of a tooth or even to use as a filling or help with discoloration.
Some issues might require more time in treatment and more planning, but we can create a personalized treatment plan to include veneers, bridges, crowns and implants. We also partner with the best orthodontists in Norman to offer more involved straightening procedures such as braces or Invisalign.
These treatments require an investment in yourself and your smile, which will last a long time with proper maintenance, and help you gather the confidence you need to show off your teeth when you smile. Small enhancements made by your dentist will allow you to grin without worrying about the state of your teeth.
