There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. However, there are cosmetic dental procedures to correct the characteristics you don’t like about your smile.

1. Color: If you’d like a whiter smile, consider teeth whitening. While over-the-counter systems work well in some cases, dentist-prescribed teeth whitening is stronger and more effective. When teeth whitening won’t erase stains or discoloration, porcelain veneers offer a lasting and stain-resistant alternative.

2. Position: Crooked, overlapping, and oddly spaced teeth can often be corrected with Invisalign clear braces, cosmetic bonding, or porcelain veneers.

3. Sharp, jagged, or serrated edges on front teeth can look unattractive. With cosmetic bonding or contouring, we can reshape tooth enamel to create a more esthetically pleasing smile.

4. If your look to big, you may need cosmetic recontouring or a lip-relaxing procedure to redefine the overall appearance of your smile. Oftentimes, teeth that look small are covered with overgrown gum tissue. Cosmetic gum recontouring can reveal more tooth structure to create longer, more shapely teeth.

5. Studies show, people do judge us by the appearance of our smile. If you have an attractive smile, you may be considered more intelligent, friendly, and successful. By correcting flaws in your smile, a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Randy LaFrom can give you a more youthful and attractive smile that you’ll feel confident sharing with the world.

6. Crowns on front teeth can look bulky and unnatural. Metal fillings and crowns that show when you smile or speak might make you feel self-conscious. Modern cosmetic dentistry has given us natural-looking, durable alternatives. All-ceramic or zirconia crowns, as well as composite resin fillings, can replace old-fashioned dental work and give you back your all-white smile.
