Many people feel self-conscious about some aspect of their smile. If you are one of them, cosmetic dentistry can enhance the appearance of your teeth and gums so that you can flash your smile with confidence and pride.
Some of the most common cosmetic dental problems include:
- Stained teeth: Over the years, your teeth may become stained from substances like coffee, red wine, dark colas and tobacco. Tooth whitening can give you a brighter, more attractive smile in one short visit to Dr. Sheridan’s office.
- Crooked or misaligned teeth: If your teeth are crooked and you do not want to deal with the unsightliness of traditional metal braces, you can opt for Invisalign®, a series of clear, plastic aligners that gradually move your teeth into place over several months. Porcelain veneers are an excellent option if you want straight teeth, but do not want to invest the time necessary to complete orthodontic treatment.
- Unevenly spaced, chipped or cracked teeth: Dental bonding is an effective and non-invasive way to change the size and shape of your teeth. For bigger spaces that cannot be corrected through bonding, porcelain veneers can be placed on top of your natural teeth to cover up unsightly gaps.
