If you aren’t happy with the current state of your smile, that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for it. There are a variety of cosmetic solutions available that can help you achieve the goals you have for your smile. Whether you are dealing with chips, discoloration, misshapen teeth, or misalignment, there is something out there that can correct the issue and help you feel confident about your smile once again. Here are some of the most common treatment options available.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth discoloration is natural and can happen for a variety of different reasons, including using tobacco products, drinking pigmented beverages, and aging. That being said, staining and discoloration are some of the most common reasons why people are insecure about their smiles. Fortunately, this can often time be easily corrected with professional teeth whitening from your dentist. In just one appointment, a combination of a potent whitening gel and a low-heat activation lamp can lighten your teeth multiple shades! If you prefer, you could also opt for a professional take-home whitening kit. This way, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home over the duration of only two weeks.


To get a complete smile makeover for the summer, dental veneers could be the option for you. They are thin shells of porcelain that are placed over the front surface of the teeth in order to cover up imperfections and flaws, including chips, stains, misshapen teeth, and teeth that are slightly crooked. They are a preferred option by celebrities because of their ability to provide patients with a red carpet-ready smile. They can be placed in as few as two appointments.

Direct Bonding

If you have a few small imperfections that are making themselves noticeable, direct bonding may be the affordable, yet effective option that you’re looking for. This non-invasive procedure involves the use of a tooth-colored composite resin that’s sculpted to the tooth in order to fix chips, gaps, cracks, and slight discoloration. Some benefits of direct bonding are that it’s completed in just one appointment, and it doesn’t require the removal of any protective enamel.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover simply combines a variety of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments to transform your smile dramatically in the best possible timeframe. You could combine teeth whitening and veneers, tooth-colored crowns and bonding, and many more combinations. This way, you can get exactly what you’re looking for.

If you aren’t happy with your smile, it doesn’t hurt to talk to your dentist. This way, you can create a customized plan to help you achieve the goals you have for your smile!
