The man needs to go to the dentist to install braces.For most individuals, their smile holds significant weight in their level of confidence, as it is often the first attribute one notices about a person. That being said, being one step away from an otherwise perfect smile can impact a person’s self-esteem significantly. Fortunately, your Leawood, KS dentist at Dreem Dentistry recognizes this, and offers a variety of cosmetic and restorative treatments that can be utilized to restore your grin and give you that beautiful appearance you’ve always wanted.

Contouring to Mimic Natural Textures

Nothing is more disheartening than having a single chip or crack significantly tarnish your smile. What’s more, the unevenness created does not impact just a single tooth, but the appearance overall. Fortunately, the process of having the structure contoured is a relatively simple and efficient cosmetic treatment that can restore your natural symmetry. Contouring involves applying a tooth-colored dental composite to the affected area. This composite is then sculpted or shaped to not only align with the natural level of your teeth, but to provide a lifelike result that mimics your teeth’s natural texture.

Closing Gaps with Veneers

Another solution to perfecting your grin may consist of applying porcelain veneers. Typically used as a method of addressing multiple blemishes within your smile, porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain that are customized to address your specific needs. They can be created to address a single tooth or even an entire set, and are secured to the front of the teeth with a dental cement. When placing veneers, your teeth only need a minimal amount of enamel sculpting so as to secure them without any excess space or bulkiness. This solution offers a way of combatting minor chips, difficult stains, and is an excellent solution for closing gaps within your grin, providing a seamless appearance through and through. They are highly customizable in that they can be created to match the shade of each tooth so that, from a distance, others will not know that you had any treatment at all.

Uniformity with Dental Crowns

In addition to contouring and veneers, dental crowns offer a method of addressing significant damage to a tooth while also protecting it from future damage. When an oral structure has endured decay or other harm, your dentist can clean and remove the diseased portions to prevent further decay. Your dentist will then create a custom crown that is matched to your grin, and placed over the compromised structure. This provides a seamless appearance, as well as future protection from harmful bacteria. Contact our team to learn more.
