A Better Smile is Within Reach
- Posted on: Sep 15 2017
Your smile is one of the most significant characteristics of your face. It is what leaves a lasting impression – or not. By now, most of us realize the power of an attractive, healthy smile. Instinctively, we shield our smile if we aren’t completely confident in the condition of our teeth. If you can relate to this feeling of wanting to keep your smile under wraps, know that a whole new world is open to you. All you’ve got to do is express your concerns and desires for a better smile to your cosmetic dentist.
Accredited cosmetic dentist Dr. John Highsmith provides high-level care to patients from the Clyde area. In our friendly office environment, we develop treatment plans around the needs and preferences of each. Some of the treatments commonly used to transform smiles include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Six Month Smiles®
- Tooth-colored fillings
Porcelain veneers have quickly gained fame as one of the best treatments for a smile makeover. What is important to know about this process is that it isn’t reserved for dramatic, full-mouth restoration only. Many of our patients have recharged their smiles using just one or two veneers over a crack, stain, or gap.
Teeth whitening has got to be one of the simplest ways to refresh a dull, drab smile. In many cases, we have seen a complete turnaround in a person’s smile just by removing troublesome stains. The process is simple: a mild bleaching agent is applied to enamel, where it is absorbed into pores to break apart tiny particles of debris that are blocking light. Teeth whitening may be an at-home treatment that gradually lifts stains over a few weeks, or it may be conducted in the dental office for immediate improvement.
Six Month Smiles is an innovative teeth-straightening system that focuses on improving spacing across the smile. Brackets and wires are discreet and comfortable and are modeled after the same orthodontic principle used to correct all levels of misalignment. Because this protocol straightens only the front teeth, patients enjoy an accelerated process toward their best smile.
Tooth-colored fillings resolve dental issues while also preserving the natural aesthetic patients like to see when they smile. These composite or porcelain fillings were once thought advantageous for front teeth. Today, they are used throughout the mouth for durability and attractiveness.
