Do you ever hesitate to smile? Are you slightly self-conscious because your smile is a little crooked, discolored, or because you’re missing teeth? If you’re suffering from any of these issues, or issues like them, cosmetic dentistry could be the solution you need.

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry designed to improve the appearance of your smile. It includes teeth whitening, which you could consider if you’re not satisfied with the color of your pearly whites. However, if you’re interested in improving the appearance of your smile further, you could also consider veneers. These thin shells are bonded to your teeth and used to cover small imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, or stains.

You could also consider the benefits of dental bonding. This treatment involves using a composite material that’s matched to the color of your teeth to correct a chip or a gap. There are other options for improving the appearance of your smile, as well. Even treatments such as crowns, implants, and fillings are now designed to match and improve the appearance of your smile.
