Five Ways an Experienced Cosmetic Dentist Can Perfect Your Smile

Teeth whitening is only one of many options.

Are you happy with your current smile?

You would be surprised by the number of people who visit the dentist for cosmetic purposes. The shape, color, and alignment of your teeth can have a significant impact on your self esteem. At Penn Dental Family Practice, we’re proud to offer our patients a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatment options.

Here’s a list of five of the most popular ways that Penn’s experienced cosmetic dentists help patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted:

  1. Porcelain Veneers.
    If you’re looking for a comprehensive makeover, then porcelain veneers may be the right choice for you. Veneers are used to improve both the shape and color of your teeth. A thin layer of enamel must be removed before the veneers (made of a durable porcelain material) can be placed. After the veneers are placed, your smile will show perfectly-shaped, pearly whites. You’ll want to be sure to discuss this treatment option with an experienced cosmetic dentist, as it is a permanent decision.
  2. Teeth Whitening.
    Experienced-Cosmetic-DentistAmong PDFP patients, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It’s fast, affordable, and most of all, yields great results. Whitening at the dentist is the safest way to go to avoid gum sensitivity and to achieve the most rapid transformation. You can expect to see a difference up to eight shades lighter after this procedure.
  3. Invisalign
    Patients don’t often associate orthodontics with cosmetic procedures, but for many people it’s one that will have the biggest impact on their smile. Invisalign clear aligners are an attractive alternative to traditional braces. The clear aligners are hardly noticeable, and offer more timely results than traditional braces. Invisalign is equally as effective in straightening teeth and fixing overbites/underbites.
  4. Dental Implants
    Did you know that dental implants are widely touted as the superior choice for tooth replacement? Whether you had to get a tooth extraction or your tooth fell out on its own, a dental implant acts as the perfect stand-in for your original tooth. Unlike other restoration treatments, a dental implant stimulates bone growth in the jaw, which helps to guard against the potential gum and bone recession that are often associated with tooth loss.
  5. Crowns
    Patients looking to cover a misshaped or cracked tooth may be interested in dental crowns. Once your dentist addresses possible underlying conditions (such as a cavity, etc.,) a crown will be placed over the tooth so that it looks and functions like your natural teeth.
