Which Cosmetic Option Can Improve Your Smile Best?

You don’t have to be able to precisely define what’s wrong with your smile’s appearance to know that it needs improvement. Cosmetic dental concerns come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and can affect your teeth, gums, and smile in many different ways. The good news, however, is that there’s a cosmetic dental solution for virtually any concern you might have with how your smile looks. At our Pella, IA, dental office, we can help you improve your smile in just the right way by carefully diagnosing your smile’s issues and custom-designing the right cosmetic solution for fixing it.

If your teeth need to be brighter

Of the many different potential cosmetic concerns with your smile, stained and dull teeth are among the most common. When your teeth begin to lose their healthy shine and luster, the effects may not be immediately noticeable. However, over time, you won’t be able to ignore the difference. Depending on the specific nature of your teeth stains, such as whether they’re on the surfaces of your teeth, we may be able to brighten your smile with minimally invasive teeth-whitening. Designed to break up stains on your teeth surfaces quickly, safely, and effectively, teeth-whitening can significantly brighten your smile by several shades.

If you have a chipped or cracked tooth to fix

In addition to the color and shade of your teeth, your smile’s appearance can also be affected by issues that impact your tooth structure. For example, if you have a tooth that’s chipped or cracked, then it can make your entire smile seem uneven and/or unhealthy. Teeth-whitening won’t suffice to address the damage, but a minimally invasive solution such as tooth bonding can offer significant smile improvement. Bonding involves placing tooth-colored composite resin on the tooth, then sculpting and polishing it to restore the tooth’s health and integrity.

If you have multiple issues to improve at once

When you have multiple different cosmetic issues to fix in order to improve your smile, the process can seem much more challenging. While it can be, that doesn’t mean that your smile improvement has to be complicated. In many cases, we can recommend placing one or more custom-designed porcelain veneers on your teeth to instantly transform their appearance. Veneers are thin, lifelike shells of dental porcelain that we can bond to the fronts of one or more teeth, creating a makeover for your smile that can be accomplished with just one procedure.
