Do you have a smile that you’re not quick to show-off? Maybe you have a cracked or chipped tooth or two. Or perhaps there are gaps in your front teeth or pits or grooves in the enamel. There are a number of scenarios that cause people with perfectly healthy teeth to feel ashamed of their smile. Fortunately, the demand for cosmetic dentistry has risen drastically in recent decades and access to simple, quick improvements is now available to just about everyone. You’d be surprised what a little tooth contouring, or sculpting can do to improve your look and boost your self-esteem.
Tooth sculpting involves selecting the appropriate material and shade with an artistic placement and finishing touch to produce a tooth or molar with no visible restoration. Candidates for tooth sculpting include individuals who have healthy teeth and gums but are seeking to improve the look of their teeth through minor changes. It can be used to correct crooked, cracked, chipped, stained, or even overlapping teeth, to name a few. Bonding and/or veneers are commonly coupled with tooth sculpting for best results. At Miami Dental Sedation Spa, you can discuss your concerns with Dr. Luis Sanchez or Dr. Gabriel Vidal, at which point a smile analysis can be completed. A smile analysis will take into account the amount of teeth showing, their shape, shade, position, the smile arch, midline, and other determinants of a beautiful smile. This information will then be used to create a treatment plan that you are happy and comfortable with. In some cases, a trial smile will also be available. This is when temporary material is placed on the teeth to determine the best fit and shape of a future esthetic reconstruction, enabling the patient to see and feel the changes before they’re actually completed.
It has never been easier to correct minor dental issues. The perfect smile could be an appointment or two away, and is now available virtually pain-free. You don’t have to be ashamed to laugh out loud and let the world see your beautiful pearly whites. Talk to your cosmetic dentist today and discover how to become the best you possible.
