Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. So, it’s understandable for you to look for ways to improve its appearance. Fortunately, at My Family Dentistry, we have plenty of cosmetic treatments available to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Depending on your personal smile goals, here are a few treatments to consider:
1. Teeth Whitening
One of the most common cosmetic complaints we hear from patients is about their discolored or stained teeth. While a thorough dental cleaning removes some surface stains, only professional teeth whitening can give you truly pearly whites. It’s also a quick and affordable way to brighten your smile. We recommend combining an at-home whitening kit with in-office treatment for the best results.
Veneers are a great solution if you want to cover up imperfections such as chips, cracks, or discolored teeth. We will bond these thin, custom-made shells to the front of your teeth. We usually need to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for them. Although they can have a significant upfront cost, the results last a decade or longer with proper oral care and attention. They’ll look natural and blend in beautifully with your smile.
3. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding can also disguise dental flaws. A tooth-colored resin is applied to your teeth and then hardened with a special light. It’s a more affordable alternative to veneers. However, the results aren’t as long-lasting, and it won’t work well for larger imperfections. Nevertheless, many patients love the relatively quick and easy process. Bonding can usually be completed in just one visit.
Instead of taking several years to straighten your teeth with braces, you can pursue orthodontic treatment through Invisalign. These clear, removable aligners can fix alignment issues in about 12 to 18 months. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is virtually invisible. It’s perfect for professional adults who don’t want everyone to know they have orthodontics! They can also be removed for eating and brushing your teeth.
5. Gum Contouring
Gum contouring is an excellent option if you show more gums than teeth when you smile. We’ll gently remove excess gum tissue using a laser. This creates a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile. Since we use lasers, you can expect a comfortable and relatively pain-free experience.
To address many flaws in your smile, we may recommend a complete makeover. Your dentist will create a custom treatment plan that addresses everything you want to change. It may include some of the treatments mentioned above and/or restorative services. It’s a great way to get the results you want!
Of course, these cosmetic treatments are only the beginning of what we have available. We’d love to work with you to give you an attractive smile you love showing off! Find out what’s possible by calling us at 865-685-9939 to schedule an appointment in Powell, TN. Or simply schedule online.
