Four Options for a Better Looking Smile

Four Options for a Better Looking SmileYour phone beeps. Someone has posted   a picture of you with a group of friends. It’s  a great picture of everyone – except you. You look at your smile critically. It should be whiter, straighter. You hate that gap between your front teeth, and the bottom tooth that was chipped in middle school stands out like a sore thumb.

If you feel uncertain about your grin, you should contact your cosmetic dentist in Centennial, Colorado. We can provide treatment options for a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Four of our most popular options include:

  • Whitening: Gel whitening is a treatment of the past. In Centennial, we use Sapphire Light, a new technology that whitens with Plasma Arc Light to whiten your teeth as much as 12 shades in 30 to 60 minutes. No more bleach sensitivity and no more messy trays.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Ultra-thin porcelain shells cover twisted, uneven, or discolored teeth. Although the process of applying veneers does involve removing some of the surface of the tooth, ultimately, the veneers cover and protect the tooth behind them. Once it’s done, your smile will shine!
  • Dental Bonding: If your cosmetic dental concerns are more minor, you might not need a full set of veneers. Dental bonding can correct small issues like wear from chips, a too large gap between your teeth, or a tooth that’s uneven. It looks and feels like your regular teeth!
  • Dental Implants: A missing tooth can make your smile off balance, and it can also be a health problem! But you can correct the problem permanently with a dental implant. The implant is anchored in your jaw with a titanium root. Once the root and jaw heals, we place a permanent crown over the root. The implant looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth!

There are lots of options to fix your teeth. Your Centennial dentist at Young Family and Cosmetic Dentist will go over all of them with you so you can determine a treatment plan that’s right for you! Call our office today to schedule a consultation!
