Are you a little insecure about your smile?

People usually notice our smiles when they look at us, and if something is wrong, you may feel embarrassed enough to hide your teeth. Not feeling brave enough to smile in photos or at friends can get tiring.

Having a good oral health routine is a good start, but if you think your smile is a bit lackluster, you may be wondering about the most popular dentistry treatments that could work for you.

Here are some cosmetic dental treatments that could turn your frown upside down!

1. Invisalign

Among the most popular tooth cosmetics, Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth over a 12 to 18 month period. Invisalign inserts are becoming more popular because of their unnoticeable appearance and ability to be taken out during meals. They’re often more comfortable than braces and are easy to clean!

Many adults are embarrassed by the thought of having traditional braces, so using Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth without the brackets and wires! Invisalign will also allow you to continue with your normal diet whereas braces have some dietary restrictions.

2. Teeth Whitening

Over time, our teeth can become yellowed and stained. Some discoloration is normal, but if you find your teeth becoming particularly yellow or brown, you may want to explore teeth whitening options.

This popular dental procedure can have you smiling in photos and at friends without worrying about yellow teeth or stains! Just be sure to take care of your teeth after the procedure to keep them white.

3. CEREC Restorations

CEREC uses CAD (computer-assisted design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) to take a three-dimensional image of the needed tooth repairs and creates a ceramic restoration that matches the color of your teeth.

Crowns, broken teeth, and metal fillings are common restorations that can be created using CEREC. They can often be taken care of in a single day! These restorations can last 10 to 15 years, or longer if you take good care of them.

4. Lumineers and Veneers

If you have chipped, crooked, or naturally discolored teeth, Lumineers or veneers may be the correct solution to fix your smile! These porcelain coverings fit over your teeth to hide any damage.

Lumineers are thinner than veneers and may feel more natural. They also don’t require any amount of your tooth to be removed, so they’re more reversible than traditional veneers.

5. Inlays and Onlays

If you have tooth decay that has become painful, an inlay or onlay may be necessary to prevent further damage and make the tooth usable again. Inlays and onlays are also an attractive way to fill in the surface of the affected tooth to make it look like an ordinary tooth again.
