Everybody desires to have an attractive smile. But sometimes, dental concerns such as gapped teeth, chipped or broken teeth, misaligned teeth, and stained teeth take away your confidence and make you hesitant to smile. Fortunately, many treatment options and procedures are available, using which you can restore the shape, size, and color of your teeth and get back your beautiful smile.
Check out these procedures to improve your smile for senior pictures:
- Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin wafer-like coverings made using tooth-colored materials, particularly designed to cover the front side of your teeth. The process involves removing a small amount of enamel from your teeth such that the veneer is properly accommodated. Dental veneers look exactly like your natural teeth.
If you are not happy with the way your teeth look, it’s time to make an appointment with our dentist and opt for dental bonding. This procedure helps to restore the natural appearance of your teeth. Under bonding, our dentist attaches dental-grade material directly to your teeth. The natural tooth enamel is fused with bonding substances like tooth-colored resins and porcelain.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants are the best way to replace your missing teeth. They function as a strong anchor for your replacement prostheses. Our dentist uses titanium and other materials to design the implants and fix them in your mouth. These implants then hold dental restorations such as crowns or bridges in place. In case you have multiple missing teeth, we will suggest a more convenient option of prosthetic dentures.
- Teeth Whitening
One of the most popular procedures to improve your smile for senior photos is teeth whitening. You can visit our dental clinic and ask our dentist to perform professional teeth whitening. The process includes using a high-quality whitening agent on the teeth to remove stains, plaque, tartar, and the build-up of other substances. You are further expected to follow an after-care routine of brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day to maintain a pearly white smile.
- Gum Contouring
If you do not like your gummy smile, you can opt for gum contouring, where our dentist addresses your uneven gums and reshapes the same. This procedure uses a soft tissue laser to remove those parts of the gum that make your teeth look uneven or short. The laser vaporizes the soft tissue instantly and cauterizes the wound.
- Tooth Shaping
Our dentist also performs tooth shaping or enamel shaping to restore the shape and size of your teeth. If your teeth are too long, they will file them down, thereby reducing their length. Enamel shaping also helps to correct your chipped or misshapen teeth.
