I Don’t Like My Smile. Can a Cosmetic Dentist Fix It?

No one is perfect – we are all human. That said, however, it’s perfectly OK to take steps to enhance a part of yourself that you’re less than comfortable with. A qualified cosmetic dentist can partner with you in your quest to improve your smile. He or she can help correct a number of aesthetic and dental conditions, and beautify your smile in the process.

Smile Improvement 101: What Your Cosmetic Dentist Can Help Fix Or Improve

Not all challenged teeth should be treated by a cosmetic dentist. For example, a natural tooth with compromised roots needs to be evaluated by a endodontist. But many conditions are readily treatable by your cosmetic dental provider. Here are a few smile conditions that your cosmetic dentist can discuss with you and make plans to improve.

  1. Crooked, stained or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers provide a dazzling cover for teeth with issues of shape, cosmetic-dentistshade or rotation.
  2. Teeth with severely compromised tooth structure. If veneers are not enough to protect and enhance a tooth, a dental crown may help protect your natural tooth from further damage.
  3. Teeth discolored by foods, beverages, or other surface stains. Teeth whitening performed in a cosmetic dentist’s office is a powerful and effective way to remove extrinsic (surface) stains and replace them with a natural-looking yet remarkably bright grin.
  4. A gum line that is out of proportion with your teeth. If you have a “gummy smile,” a cosmetic dentist can perform gum contouring to reshape your gum line. This procedure has the added advantage of being able to eradicate bacteria that can fuel future periodontal disease.
  5. A mouth full of damaged or diseased natural teeth. Not all smile issues can be resolved with dental restorations. If you are at risk of losing or have lost all of your natural teeth, dental implants can dramatically improve the quality of your smile, as well as provide you with the support your jaws need to remain healthy.

“You don’t have to live with a smile you’re not happy with. Visit a cosmetic dentist today to discover all the ways in which we can help you fix it,” says Dr. Carol Ford, founder of Dr. Carol Ford & Associates and a cosmetic dentist with an office in central Phoenix
