Have you been studying your smile in the mirror lately? Does it look like one tooth seems to be sticking out more than usual or that your teeth look a little dull these days? Many people come into our office to talk with our dentist Dr. Jenny Wang about these common problems. Our smiles change over the years, influenced by everything from teeth grinding to what we eat. Fortunately, our dental team can reverse many of these esthetic issues with cosmetic dentistry.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is a special field of dentistry that provides our patients with customized treatment options designed to alter the shape, size, color and overall appearance of your teeth. Our cosmetic dentistry team can help you get your dream smile through the different treatment options we offer, and most healthy individuals are perfect candidates for cosmetic treatment.
What cosmetic treatment is right for me?
In order for us to determine which cosmetic treatment is ideal for you, you will need to come into our practice for a consultation. During your consultation we will,
- Determine if your smile is healthy enough for treatment
- Review your medical history
- Discuss your treatment goals
- Examine your smile and possibly take X-rays
Once we know that you are healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry and we understand your specific goals better we can discuss which treatment options may best suit your needs. Some of the popular cosmetic treatments we offer here in Woburn, MA, include,
This is, by far, our most popular treatment option because these days everyone wants a whiter smile. Whether your smile has faded over the years or that coffee habit has left you with yellow stains, our professional chairside whitening can easily remove these stains and get teeth several shades whiter in under one hour.
Dental Bonding and Contouring
Even small chips, discolorations or gaps between teeth can still leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just for tackling more moderate imperfections. In fact, bonding and contouring can help buff away small chips in teeth, while bonding uses a tooth-colored material to cover tiny flaws and reshape and brighten a tooth. These non-invasive cosmetic treatments are great for tackling more minor esthetic concerns.
Ever wonder how actors always seem to have such perfect teeth? Well, many of them have veneers to that. These very thin porcelain shells are custom-made to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are bonded directly to the front, where they help to reshape, brighten and realign your teeth all at once. If you’ve ever wished your teeth were a little longer, more even or perfectly straight, veneers may be ideal for you.
