October 5th is World Smile Day, and it is a day to share kindness with everyone you encounter. Many people celebrate with sidewalk chalk activities and volunteer work, but you can spread some joy by simply smiling and showing some thoughtfulness to everyone you come into contact with. When your teeth are not their best, you may not feel like smiling. That is why you need to look into the following cosmetic dentistry treatments so that you can smile big and wide once again. 

1. Porcelain Bridges, Crowns and Fillings

When teeth become misshapen and fractured, it can drastically alter the look and feel of your smile. Crowns and bridges are useful prosthetics for covering up those instances of damage. Fillings are useful for filling in problem spots and strengthening the overall structure. All these procedures create a more even, aesthetically-pleasing smile that is free of imperfections. 

2. Teeth Whitening

Teeth can darken substantially from consuming tea and coffee frequently. Poor dental hygiene and taking certain types of medications can also result in teeth turning brown or yellow. A professional teeth whitening in lieu of using over-the-counter products can brighten a smile up to eight shades. 

3. Veneers

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain by actually covering up any tooth defects. Cracks, chips and even minor misalignments can benefit from dental veneers. It covers up the imperfections, and our dentist can match the shade of the veneer to perfectly match the rest of your natural enamel. 

4. Orthodontics

Our dental practice offers standard braces that utilize wires and brackets to move teeth into a more desired position. However, many patients will prefer using ClearCorrect. This treatment relies on clear, plastic aligners that blend in more and are not as noticeable.
