If you want to create a beautiful smile, cosmetic dentistry may be necessary. Even once you know that, though, it can be hard to determine just which treatment is the best way to go about enhancing your smile’s natural beauty through artistic cosmetic dentistry. In some cases, a single treatment may be able to create your dream smile. Other situations require several forms of treatment in order to create a beautiful yet natural-looking smile for which you can be proud.
Veneers Offer More Comprehensive Enhancements
Few cosmetic treatments offer more comprehensive benefits than porcelain veneers. That is because porcelain veneers can singlehandedly be used to hide a number of esthetic imperfections, and to create a more beautiful smile.
For instance, veneers are regularly used to:
- Hide minor gaps between teeth
- Correct jagged edges, pointy or otherwise seemingly misshapen teeth
- Disproportionately small teeth
- Permanent staining or intrinsic discoloration that whitening cannot address
Many Times Combining Treatment Is Necessary to Create a Dream Smile
For many patients, the only or the best way to achieve their dream smile, is by combining a few or several cosmetic treatments in order to create a great-looking smile. Whitening, for instance, is a common starting point in a total smile makeover, because it allows the dentist to quickly brighten all the teeth, before bonding or veneers can be used to correct any size or shape issues with some of the teeth. Gum contouring can also be an essential part of a smile makeover, if the gums are the cause for some concern.
