It is the dream of every teen to look their best in their senior pictures. A great smile will not only enhance their facial appearance but also provides greater acceptance among their peers. Old photos will always hold a cherished memory of your schooling days which you can look at fondly down the years. Hence it becomes vital that you look your best, and a flawless smile will play a massive role in enhancing your appearance.
At our office, Roy B. Guster, DDS PC in Chicago, we will assist you in realizing a great smile just in time for your senior graduation pictures. But while we have a range of cosmetic dental procedures that can conceal your teeth's imperfections, the planning has to be done months in advance.
Here are a few ways to improve your teeth and gums with cosmetic dentistry to get you ready for your senior pictures.
Teeth bleaching is a cosmetic treatment that eliminates stains and discoloration from the teeth. Professional teeth whitening will provide instant results with long-term effects. It is a simple procedure that will not take much of your time.
Dental bonding is the direct application of tooth-colored putty on the surface of your teeth. It can correct small chips and fractures, cover discolored teeth, and fill minor cavities. This non-invasive procedure takes about thirty minutes per tooth.
A dental veneer is a slim porcelain shell secured onto the tooth's front surface whose color and look can be made to match your other natural teeth. They can fix gapped, chipped, or stained teeth and be fitted over slightly crooked teeth to look straight.
Dental crowns can conceal teeth that have been damaged by disease or breakage. They can also change the shape and size of teeth. Since they are intended to last decades, dental caps are a permanent way to enhance the appearance of the teeth.
Gum contouring can help a person with a gummy smile, uneven gums, or receding gums. The gums can be reshaped by using a soft tissue laser to gently remove the parts of the gum that make the teeth look short or uneven. The laser cuts away the soft tissue while closing the wound.
This cosmetic dental procedure helps improve the shape and size of the teeth. If a tooth is too long, it can be filed down to reduce its length. Tooth shaping also corrects slight chips on a tooth.
