What cosmetic dentistry procedure is best for me?
- Misaligned Teeth: Misaligned teeth are often best treated with orthodontic treatment. However, less severe misalignments may benefit from dental veneers or dental contouring.
- Stained Teeth: Teeth whitening can help most stains and discolorations which could hinder the way you feel about your smile. For more severe staining which does not respond to professional whitening procedures, dental veneers may be a better option.
- Uneven Teeth: While dental veneers can help uneven teeth, dental contouring can change the length or shape of your teeth. If you have an extra pointy canine or one tooth which extends below the rest, your dentist can use contouring to correct these issues and more.
- Missing Teeth: Missing teeth have several options for replacement. The most permanent and close to natural option is dental implants. Your dentist implants a small metal post called an implant fixture into the bone beneath your missing tooth where it stays permanently. Patients who do not have the proper bone volume to hold the implant may require a dental bridge held in place by the natural teeth on either side of a gap.
