A perfect smile means different things to different people. Someone might have one crooked tooth or a large gap between their front teeth and they love it. It’s their own unique quirk that makes them memorable. Unfortunately, there are just as many people, if not more, who dislike characteristics like this, tooth features that stand out interrupt a perfect smile. Don’t worry – there is always a way to get the flawless smile you want.
1. Teeth Whitening
One of the fastest and easiest ways to get a good-looking smile is through a professional teeth-whitening treatment. Through a one-hour ZOOM! whitening treatment at your dentist’s office, you can achieve immediate results. Even if your teeth aren’t completely flawless, you’ll look and feel amazing with a mega-white smile.
2. Porcelain Veneers
If you ever wonder how celebs get the gorgeous smiles they have, all straight and shiny and looking like they hit the DNA jackpot, know this: The majority of those VIPs have a great cosmetic dentist who has created that smile for them, likely using porcelain veneers. These thin porcelain shells are customized in color, shape, size, and length to conceal eight to 10 of your upper front teeth. Perfect smile, achieved.
3. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is an often-overlooked way to improve a smile. While it is excellent at restoring damaged, broken, or chipped teeth, this treatment can also fix stained, gapped, jagged, misaligned, or misshapen teeth. If you need one tooth to be perfect but it’s far from that state, dental bonding only takes about 30 minutes to apply and shape into perfection.
When you’re ready to put in a little more time and effort to get a straight smile, it’s time to learn about Invisalign. This treatment takes about one year to complete and gently moves teeth into alignment a few teeth at a time. Your smile, at the end, will be flawlessly straight. Follow it up with a teeth whitening treatment and you will really have perfection.
5. Porcelain Crowns
Sometimes, when you have a damaged or deteriorating tooth, you need a robust solution to fix the problem. When a tooth-colored filling isn’t strong or big enough to do the work, a porcelain crown will get the job done. Crowns are customized in size, shape, and color and carefully fitted over your problem tooth. This treatment immediately gives you a tooth that is strong, fully functioning, and looks just like the teeth around it.
Perfection Isn’t Everything, but It Doesn’t Hurt
You don’t have to have completely perfect teeth to have a perfect smile. After all, perfection is subjective. What’s important is getting a smile that is just right for you, and you can achieve that with one or more cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry treatments.
