Improve Your Smile

By making it a regular habit of visiting your dentist, you can improve and retain your smile. You would surely love to have that pearly white smile, won’t you? Well – your dentist will not only ensure your oral hygiene but will also bring subtle changes or major repairs, which in turn will improve your smile. There are many advanced options and techniques these days to treat teeth that are chipped, discolored, missing or have been damaged in some accident. Your dentist can modify the length of your teeth, close spaces between them, reshape them, restore short teeth or those that have been worn out. According to Dr. LaFrom – one of the leading dentists in Cupertino, some common dental procedures that are used for such cases include bonding, bleaching, crowns, veneers, reshaping as well as contouring.

Bonding makes use of material that resembles the color of teeth, to either change the color of teeth or to plug in gaps between them. If you want to hide some stains on your teeth or wish for that pearly white smile, you can opt for bleaching – a common chemical process that’s utilized to whiten teeth 

Crowns cover a tooth, thereby helping in the restoration of its normal appearance and shape. Though crowns are one of the most time-consuming methods, they stay for the longest period of time amongst all other cosmetic restorations. Veneers are an alternative to crowns, but they will cost more to the patient. Veneers are slim sections of plastic or porcelain put over the front teeth in order to change the shape or color of your teeth.

If you want to change the shape, length, or position of your teeth, you may opt for tooth reshaping and contouring. To know more about improving your smile and to contact Dr. LaFrom, you may visit our website
