Confidence levels differ from person to person. And the better you feel about yourself, the more likely you are to speak up for your wants and needs, pursue your passions, and lead a successful life. The good news is that a boost in confidence isn’t so hard to find. In fact, your smile is closely linked to your self image and self esteem. If that smile isn’t exactly what you’d like it to be, you’re less likely to pursue life with the same zeal. With the aid of cosmetic dentistry, you don’t have to feel like you’re being held back by an inadequate grin.
Are You Completely Happy With Your Smile?
Before considering cosmetic dental work as a means of self-improvement, you’ll need to decide whether you really love your smile. You should feel proud of your teeth and their appearance – and if you don’t, it’s likely that a cosmetic change will make a big difference. Consider what it is about your smile that you do appreciate, and what you would rather minimize. Once you have your dental priorities in order, you’ll be ready to meet and consult with a cosmetic dentist.

Treatments and Corresponding Cosmetic Changes
Get an idea of which cosmetic treatment is right for your smile by perusing this list of common procedures, and the changes they effect:
- Teeth whitening – Okay, this one is pretty self-explanatory. But while you know what teeth whitening does to a smile, you may not be aware of just how significant an impact it can make. Some patients who are initially seeking extensive cosmetic work find that whitening results offer all they had been wanting. In-office whitening shows results within one appointment, leaving patients satisfied and ready to get back to their lives.
- Dental bonding – Like whitening, bonding offers same-day aesthetic changes. During bonding, your dentist applies tooth-colored composite to a tooth, changing its shape, shade, or size. Bonding allows for a variety of minor changes to be made to front teeth, covering chips, cracks, gaps, stains, and weakened enamel.
- Porcelain veneers – Veneers are porcelain restorations that bond directly to tooth surfaces. Once veneers are in place, they become a visually integrated part of the smile, and won’t stand out against natural teeth. The porcelain makes up veneers comes in a wide range of colors, and its strength will allow your new smile to last for many years. Veneers are great for whitening teeth, lengthening teeth, filling gaps between teeth, straightening front teeth, and repairing damaged teeth.
- Smile makeover – A smile makeover combines any number of treatment to result in a transformed look. Your smile makeover will create your perfect smile.
