What Common Smile Issues Can Be Fixed With Cosmetic Dentistry?

You can have a smile you love with our cosmetic dentistry options.

A studyOpens in PR Newswire website revealed that about 1/3 of the American population are unhappy with their smiles. Does that sound like you?

The good news:

Common smile issues such as stained or yellowed teeth, crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, and a gummy smile are all easily corrected with cosmetic dentistry options.

What treatments does this involve? Are they costly? How long do they take?

You can find the answers to all of your questions in our article below.

Your smile’s appearance matters!

Very few of us are born with perfect teeth. There is usually something about our teeth and smile that makes us feel self-conscious.

In the study referenced above, people revealed they feel their smile’s appearance has negatively affected their social or business life. Interestingly, 78% of respondents said they perceive people with crooked teeth as being unattractive and unsuccessful.

No wonder we all lack a little self-confidence when it comes to our smiles!

Our Kennesaw cosmetic dentist, Dr. Eric Duncan, would like you to know you don’t have to live with a smile you don’t love. There are cosmetic dentistry options that can quickly and affordably upgrade your smile.

What are they?

Enhancing your smile with cosmetic dentistry options

Whatever your smile issue, we have excellent cosmetic dentistry solutions that will help!

Teeth whitening

One option for stained teeth is teeth whitening. There are a variety of reasons your teeth might become dull, yellowed, or stained, including:

  • Smoking
  • Medications
  • Aging
  • Stain-causing food or drinks like wine or coffee

Our office offers an at-home whitening system that uses custom-created trays and professional-strength whitening gel. This system gives you brighter and more even whitening results than an over-the-counter whitener can.

Whitening your teeth is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to upgrade the appearance of your smile. A fresh, white smile makes you appear younger, healthier, and more confident. Who doesn’t want that?

Porcelain veneers

Another option to enhance your smile is porcelain veneers.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain, which are placed over your existing teeth to change their color, shape, and size. It can modify teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Too big or too small
  • Stained
  • Crowded or have gaps

Porcelain veneers will require a few visits to our office and some modifications to your teeth to place them. The cost will depend on the number of teeth treated. That is one of the advantages of veneers; you can change the appearance of either one or multiple teeth.

Gum contouring

Another easy and quick way to create a smile you’ll love is with gum contouring.

The gum line around your teeth can make your teeth look too small or uneven. A laser is used to precisely and quickly dissolve gum tissue leaving you with beautifully framed teeth, uncovering the full beauty of your smile.

Gum contouring takes just one visit, and it is a very cost-effective way to make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile.

Makeover your smile completely

Does your smile have more than one issue you would like to fix?
