5 Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments for a More Vibrant Smile

5 Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments for a More Vibrant Smile

It’s no secret that a perfect set of white teeth is a confidence booster, but few of us have it. According to estimates, nine in 10 Americans suffer from some type of misalignment. In addition, many people end up with dental stains from drinking coffee, tea, and juice. 

Fortunately, with the help of modern dentistry, you don’t have to hide your teeth behind a closed-lip smile anymore. Read on to find out how our specialists at Cherry Family Dental can help you achieve the perfect smile regardless of the cosmetic issue. 

1. Invisalign 

Traditional braces often come with the trade-off of unsightly and uncomfortable metal brackets to straighten your teeth. 

But we understand that some patients, especially adults, may not like to bring attention to their teeth with braces. So we offer a subtle solution to misalignments: Invisalign

Invisalign® aligner trays are made of clear plastic, and they’re less painful than traditional braces. 

2. Teeth whitening 

Dental stains are one of the most common complaints. You can address brown and yellow stains with the help of teeth whitening treatments as long as the enamel on your teeth is strong and healthy.

3. Veneers 

Veneers are a way to hide crooked teeth, short teeth, or discolorations and stains that we can't remove with a teeth whitening treatment. We offer two types of veneers: porcelain veneers and Lumineers®. 

Porcelain veneers are stronger and thicker but come with one major disadvantage: We have to shave down some of your enamel before placement. Lumineers are thinner, and we can place them without removing the outer layer of the tooth. 

4. Composite fillings 

Composite fillings are used for functional purposes, such as filling in cavities. But we can also use them for cosmetic purposes, because they blend in with the natural shade of teeth. 

If you have amalgam fillings that ruin the aesthetics of your teeth, you can have them replaced with composite fillings, which look exactly like your natural teeth. 

5. Dental implants 

Like fillings, dental implants have both a cosmetic and a functional purpose. From a functional perspective, dental implants prevent bone loss in your jaw and stop other teeth from shifting. 

From a cosmetic perspective, dental implants can provide a confidence boost, because they function and look just like natural teeth.
