Sometimes, one or a few blemishes to your smile’s appearance can be obvious, and so is the need for cosmetic dental treatment to improve it. However, not everyone is sure exactly how cosmetic treatment could improve their smile, or if it’s worth trying. At our Albuquerque, NM, dental office, we offer a variety of treatments designed to help address nearly any concern you have with your smile’s appearance. Today, we examine three common reasons why your smile may need cosmetic dentistry, and how the right treatment can help.
One of the most common reasons for needing cosmetic dental treatment is to improve the color and shine of your teeth. Over the years, teeth can stain and/or lose their luster due to exposure to foods, beverages, and more. While these stains aren’t always preventable, we can usually brighten them successfully with the help of professional teeth-whitening. The procedure is designed to erase the stains that develop on teeth’s surfaces and brighten their appearance using a safe but potent topical bleaching agent. After completing treatment, your smile will once again be bright, healthy-looking, and stain-free, all with minimally invasive treatment.
Damage to your tooth’s structure can be serious, or become serious over time, but in many instances, it can be fixed and improved with minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. For example, if your tooth has a chipped edge or lightly cracked surface, then we may be able to restore it with a tooth-colored composite resin (a process known as tooth bonding). Or, we may recommend placing a custom-designed porcelain veneer to completely transform the tooth’s appearance in a natural-looking and minimally invasive manner. A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of porcelain
Excessive space between two teeth, known as a diastema, is a common condition that can dramatically impact your smile’s appearance. If your teeth are otherwise healthy, then closing the space and improving your smile’s uniformity may be simpler than you realize. Using tooth bonding, one or more custom veneers, a lifelike dental crown, or other appropriate solution, we can cosmetically improve the size, shape, spacing, and alignment of your teeth to eliminate the diastema.
There are several different types of issues that could affect your smile’s appearance. With the right cosmetic dental treatment, we can help you address virtually all of them.
