Is there any better feeling than the pride you get after you’ve updated the look of your home? A fresh of coat paint here, a new accent there, and your house can feel better than new; it can feel like home again, just a little more beautiful and stylish than it was before! Of course, your abode isn’t the only thing that can benefit from some artistic vision and a little hard work. Chances are your smile could also benefit from some artistic redesign. That is why some cosmetic dentists offer treatment that is even better than a brand new smile: your natural smile, enhanced!
Artistic Dentistry Is Required for Natural-looking Smile Enhancements
Most people have heard of professional whitening, and even know that porcelain veneers could help improve their smiles. But not everyone knows how these treatments work, or more importantly, if they can provide beautiful yet natural-looking results. The answer is yes, these and other cosmetic treatments can be used to enhance a smile’s natural beauty, rather than replacing imperfections with unnaturally bright or white teeth.
After all, the point of a smile makeover isn’t to create artificial-looking results. It’s to create a noticeably improved yet natural-looking smile.
To achieve a truly great makeover, you must first consult with your cosmetic dentist about the hopes you have for your smile makeover. This could include hiding noticeable imperfections like spacing issues between teeth, or proportion issues of the teeth themselves, or even problems with the gum tissue. But it could also involve staining, or wear that has caused your smile to look older than you’d like.
The dentist’s job, then, is to first understand your concerns, and then use his or her own artistry to carefully design improvements that will leave you with a smile for which you can feel proud.
