How to Get That Perfect Smile

If you want to achieve a beautiful smile, you can opt for a variety of common procedures. From bonding to porcelain veneers, you can choose the best treatment for your needs from PFlugerville Smiles Dentistry. You can also have your gums recontoured for a more even look. If you have decided to undergo a procedure, be sure to ask your dentist if they can help you with the cost. If not, you can consider a simple fix such as Invisalign.

Invisalign

If you want to improve your smile, you should definitely consider Invisalign. This treatment is gentle on your teeth, so you can remove them when you need to. It will also allow you to eat whatever you want without worrying about them affecting your eating habits. With Invisalign, you can achieve that perfect smile without having to undergo invasive procedures such as braces. You can even keep them in your mouth while sleeping, so you can easily remove them while you’re putting them in and out of your mouth.

Porcelain veneers

If you have stained or chipped teeth, you can have porcelain veneers installed. Coffee, tea, and smoking stain teeth. Even professional teeth whitening can’t remove them. Veneers are also useful for covering gaps and chips in teeth. The process usually requires two dental appointments. During the first visit, your dentist will make impressions of your teeth. After the impressions have been taken, the dentist will use a special light to harden the light-sensitive resin. A mock-up of your new smile is created to check fit.

Bonding

Cosmetic dentists use resin to create new tooth structures that can be bonded to the teeth. The resin is applied to the teeth in tiny amounts, and then hardened with a special light. The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Usually, no local anesthetic is needed. Compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, tooth bonding costs only $300 to $650 per tooth. This affordable procedure still produces a perfect smile.

Gum recontouring

The procedure, also called gingivoplasty or gum reshaping, will reduce gum tissue, exposing more of the tooth’s structure. The overall goal is to create an even gumline, making the teeth appear longer. Gum recontouring can also reduce gum sensitivity and make teeth appear gummy. It can improve your smile’s proportions. During your initial appointment, Dr. Toth will discuss the risks and benefits of gum recontouring with you.

Teeth whitening

If you’re unhappy with the color of your teeth, you’ve probably considered getting a teeth whitening procedure. While at-home products can give you the same results as in-office treatments, they may not be as effective. Whitening toothpastes, strips, and rinses are available, but they may not be as effective. In addition, they may take longer to work and don’t provide even lightening across all of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for a perfect smile. They can cover dental work, alter the shape and size of teeth, and correct spacing.
