Ways To Tidy Up Your Smile

Ways To Tidy Up Your Smile

Having trouble finding a way to obtain a perfect smile that is free from gaps, chips, and cracks? There are several different dental procedures that are available to help you achieve that award-winning smile. The following are a few available cosmetic dental treatments you can choose from to suit your needs.


One very popular procedure for an aesthetically pleasing smile is the process of applying veneers. Put simply, veneers are a fast, easy and quick solution to having a bright, even smile free of cracks, gaps and chips. They’re basically shells that are transparent and put onto one’s teeth to help make one’s smile more aesthetic. The shells help change the color, shape and size of your tooth in order to achieve that perfect smile. They’re stain resistant and the process doesn’t require a lot of tooth structure to be removed. However, because these shells are an easy and quick procedure, veneers are considered fragile and can become chipped and cracked if not properly cared for. So be sure to consult with your dentist to see if veneers are right for you.

Dental Bonding

If you’re looking to fix chipped or cracked teeth, or even if you’re interested in changing the shape and length of your teeth, dental bonding might be right for you. The procedure consists of taking a resin material and putting it on your tooth enamel to help rectify any chips and cracks and to help shape your tooth. Bonding is a quick solution to helping chipped or cracked teeth, and can often be done during a single dental appointment.

Dental Bridges

A more permanent fix to having a tidier smile is with dental bridges. In this procedure, false crowns are cemented onto your natural teeth. Traditionally, the bridge is used to help fill the gaps between your natural teeth and can only be removed with the help of a dentist. Getting dental bridges is generally a safe procedure but it’s always best to consult your dentist to see if dental bridges are the right procedure for you.

Teeth Whitening

For those of you looking to brighten up your smile, teeth whitening could be a great option for you. Getting your teeth professionally whitened is a safe and effective way to give you a bright and confident smile. The procedure is often very reasonably priced compared to other cosmetic procedures. 

Getting your teeth professionally whitened mainly deals with making your teeth whiter and brighter. Teeth whitening does not aid in shaping your teeth or fixing chips, cracks or gaps. In addition, there are two ways that you can get your teeth whitened. There’s the in-office procedure where the dentist whitens your teeth for you, and there is also the option to take home a teeth whitening kit that you can apply to your teeth yourself from the comfort of your own home.

These four different cosmetic procedures are just a few popular solutions to tidying up your smile. Be sure to consult your dentist in Rolla when deciding which option is best for you.
