This quiz is based on your personal opinion of your smile, so there is no right or wrong answer. I hope this quiz helped you identify the things you don’t like about your smile. If so, there are a number of cosmetic procedures that can address or correct these problems.
1. Color: A bright, white smile affects how people view you. Studies show that people with whiter teeth are thought to be more friendly, trustworthy and intelligent. For people who have used over-the-counter whitening systems and were not satisfied with the results, I offer two different in-office teeth whitening systems. We will discuss which is best for you during our consultation.
2. Position: Porcelain veneers can often correct gapped, crowded, stained, and chipped teeth. Veneers are thin, strong porcelain shells that adhere directly to existing teeth. They can straighten, lengthen, and whiten teeth to create the beautiful smile you had envisioned
3. Cosmetic bonding and contouring can provide effective solutions for sharp or jagged teeth. These cosmetic procedures enhance or reshape teeth to create a more satisfying smile. This is an ultra conservative way to change the appearance of your smile.
4. If you feel your teeth are too big or too small, cosmetic recontouring may also be the answer for you. Overgrown gum tissue can hide teeth, making them appear too small. Recontouring reshapes the gum line, making your smile look evenly shaped.
5. Your smile makes a first impression. Having a brighter, more attractive smile will boost your confidence. Your smile can also help you achieve more, both professionally and personally.
