Options for Smile Makeovers
One of the most effective ways to totally transform your appearance is to enhance your smile. When people look at you, your smile is one of the first things they notice, and a bright smile can make your look vibrant and even youthful. If you do not feel comfortable with your teeth’s appearance, it can keep you from smiling and thus have an adverse impact on your social life. Fortunately, total smile makeovers can be easily achieved with the help of a quality cosmetic dentist.
Veneers are popular options for those interested in getting smile makeovers. Farmington Hills dentists can place these thin tooth-colored caps over your front teeth to immediately improve your smile and protect your teeth’s surfaces from damage. Made of porcelain, veneers not only recreate your teeth’s natural look but also provide resilience and strength that can be compared to natural tooth enamel. A dentist may recommend veneers if you would like to alter a tooth’s color, size and/or shape.
Lumineers are another option for individuals interested in making their smiles more radiant. Lumineers are similar to veneers except they are thinner. Like veneers, Lumineers are permanent and custom-shaped, and they are indicated for lengthening and straightening teeth as well as concealing discolored or stained fillings. You can also use them to repair minor imperfections in your teeth. It is important to note that both Lumineers and veneers cover only the visible portions of your teeth and are stain-proof.
Cosmetic fillings are also helpful for those wishing to make their smiles look more natural. In the past, patients often received fillings made out of amalgam, which is a mixture of metals. Now, they can benefit from tooth-colored fillings that are more attractive yet still durable, predictable and safe. Metal fillings cannot bond to teeth. Rather, they simply rest on teeth to provide protection. Today’s cosmetic fillings, on the other hand, actually bond to teeth and thus offer a greater level of protection and comfort. With help from a reputable dentist, you can quickly alter your smile for the better and enjoy the comfort and confidence that comes with it.
