You may have many ways of describing your jagged smile, none of which include the terms “uniform” or “symmetrical.” Instead, you think of it as uneven, up-and-down, and more, as a result of teeth of varying lengths that don’t lend themselves to beautiful consistency. While you may assume you’re stuck with the jagged smile nature bestowed upon you, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Remember that cosmetic treatments practice provide you with a comprehensive selection of pathways toward your personal smile goals. For today, let’s explore and discover the solutions that allow you to improve tooth lengths for a lovely finish.
Did you know that we can lengthen just one tooth in your smile? Or, we can lengthen multiple teeth, fix chips, and fill gaps with a cosmetic dentistry treatment called bonding? After matching the color of the composite material that we use to match your tooth, we apply it, shape it, harden it, polish it, and you then have a longer looking tooth! Using this throughout your mouth will guide you toward impressive uniformity.
Porcelain Veneers May Be What You Need
You might need porcelain veneers if you’re seeking out cosmetic dentistry for your not-so-even smile. What do veneers do for you that can assist you in fixing this all-over concern? They’re fully customized, very thin shells that let us make your smile look the way you’d like. When we bond them to the surfaces of your teeth that show when you smile, we make it look as though your smile is beautifully symmetrical and in balance. Lengthen some teeth, widen others, and more!
When are veneers the best choice?
Veneers are a great choice when the issues you want to address are relatively minor and aesthetic in nature. Veneers are an excellent solution for problems such as a jagged smile, small gaps between the teeth and superficial misalignment. In these cases, veneers can significantly improve the overall color and regularity in appearance of the teeth, delivering a much-improved smile.
Except in some very specific circumstances, once a veneer has been applied to a tooth, it will always require covering going forward. You might need a replacement veneer, or the tooth could be further reduced allowing the placement of a crown. Veneers are just as permanent as a crown and shouldn’t be chosen on the basis that they are either temporary or reversible.
Crowns Help When The Issue Is Advanced
Perhaps you’re dealing with more than just some discrepancies in tooth lengths. If you have some esthetic issues and what you think of as a jagged smile because your teeth are in need of restorative help, as well, you may benefit from porcelain crowns. With this option, we can beautifully restore your teeth with allover coverage and customization. The structure of your tooth will be back to its prior, whole construction and we will address the complete vision of your smile, promoting beautiful uniformity.
