You find yourself instinctively covering your mouth with your hand whenever you laugh. When someone pulls out a camera, you find any excuse to not be in the picture. If this sounds like you, odds are you have issues with the appearance of your pearly whites. Maybe they aren’t so white anymore. Maybe they’re misaligned or strangely shaped. Whatever your complaint with your smile, your cosmetic dentist in Roselle Park can soothe your woes. Continue reading to learn how.

I Have Misshapen Teeth

If your pearly whites aren’t shaped the way you think they should be, don’t worry. Your dentist in Roselle Park can use direct bonding to sculpt your teeth into a more desirable shape. This simple procedure can be done in one quick appointment. The dentist will use a composite resin material that is shaded to perfectly match the color of your tooth. Then, he or she will apply it, making it as beautiful as you want it to be. Finally, the affected tooth will be hardened with a special curing light, and voila! Your smile is transformed in one short visit to the office.

My Front Teeth Are Crooked or Gapped

Maybe you have multiple imperfection in your smile that cosmetic bonding alone can’t improve, such as mildly misaligned teeth or tiny gaps in your grin. You don’t want to wear braces or Invisalign for a year or two just to fix a few teeth. Luckily, there’s an alternative – porcelain veneers. These wafer-thin shells of durable dental porcelain are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to mask all kinds of flaws at once, including:

  • Chips or cracks
  • Staining or discoloration
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Veneers are extra resistant to stains, and, with proper care, they can last for several years before needing replacement. They can also be installed in just a couple of appointments.

My Teeth Are Too Yellow

Many of us have tried over-the-counter whitening kits to make our smiles shine a little more, but to no avail. Fortunately, your cosmetic dentist offers professional-grade teeth whitening to help improve your grin by several shades. You can come into the office for a brighter smile in about an hour, or you can achieve more gradual results thanks to custom-made trays and high-quality bleaching gel you can use at home. No matter which method you utilize, your smile will thank you!

With all these options available, there’s no reason to hide your smile away from the world. Contact your cosmetic dentist today so see which of these options would best benefit you.
