Smiling is an important part of life. If you feel embarrassed about your smile, you might avoid smiling and laughing in front of others. At Seattle’s Best Smiles, we feel that’s a tragedy. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has a variety of treatment options that can improve the appearance of your smile and get you back to laughing with friends again.
In just three office visits, porcelain veneers could completely rejuvenate your smile. These thin, slightly translucent shells of porcelain are bonded to the front of your teeth. Veneers can conceal numerous cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Mark Caggiano will determine your candidacy for veneers during a thorough consultation. Before veneers can be placed, he will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth and take impressions. Lab technicians can then create lifelike veneers that blend seamlessly with your smile.
Many people enjoy coffee, tea, and wine with friends. The stains caused by these substances may be the very thing that makes you embarrassed about your smile. If your teeth have lost their brightness, teeth whitening can help. We offer take-home whitening kits, or in-office whitening for a stronger effect.
For those with chipped teeth, small gaps, or other similar problems, dental bonding can provide a solution. Tooth-colored composite resin, similar to that used for fillings, is used to improve the appearance of a tooth. Bonding takes only one visit, but can make a dramatic difference in your appearance, making it one of the quickest ways to get a whole new smile.
The teeth aren’t the only part of your smile that you might not feel good about. For some people, the gums can also cause embarrassment. They might be uneven, or they might cover too much of the teeth, causing a “gummy” smile. Your cosmetic dentist in Seattle can use modern technology to help with this, using a laser to remove excess tissue with minimal discomfort. You’ll notice results right away, with a more balanced smile.
It’s common to have more than one concern about your smile. In a smile makeover, your cosmetic dentist in Seattle can address them, giving you a whole new smile. Which procedures are included depends on your individual needs and preferences. In just a few office visits, you’ll regain your ability to smile and laugh freely, feeling confident in your appearance.
