Fact: The British Dental Health Foundation recently performed a research survey that found 56% of its respondents rating smiles as the most important factor in attraction.
At Morningside Dental Care we have many different options for improving an unattractive smile. Our doctors can sit down with you during your consultation and come up with a custom treatment plan that will address all of your goals. Typically the way to dramatically change your “unattractive smile” is by doing one or more of the following:
Smile Design Using Porcelain Veneers
Smile design is a term used when at least 8 or more teeth are done on the upper jaw. Typically, people show at least their top 8 teeth in a full smile. We usually recommend that we cosmetically address what we can see in your full smile. This way we / you gain control of the color, shape, symmetry, contours of the teeth, etc.
Invisalign or Express Smiles
The whitening system used in our office is called Spa-dent in office whitening.
It uses an LED light with no sensitivity. 2-8 shades lighter in approximately 30 minutes.
Cosmetic Bonding can represent a good way to change minor imperfections in one’s smile. It’s our opinion that it’s not a great method for totally changing one’s smile like veneers could be (bonding is not a good choice for changing color, shapes, contours of a large number of teeth comprehensively). But for small to moderate chips, closing small spaces, or to slightly lengthen a tooth…bonding is a GREAT option for blending seamlessly with your natural tooth.
One thing to point out though is that bonding is the MOST technical & artistic cosmetic procedure that is done by a cosmetic dentist because of the layering that must exist to truly replicate natural enamel. This is why you can “see” a lot of bad bonding but you never “see” the good ones.
Come to Morningside Dental Care for a 1 on 1 consultation with one of our doctors and we will help you achieve the smile you have always wanted!
