Do you close your lips when you smile? Do you cover your mouth when you laugh? If you don’t like something about your smile, it’s time to do something about it. Since it’s one of the first things people notice about you, it’s important you feel confident about the way it looks. We’re sharing a few ways for you to achieve a picture-perfect smile that you can show off proudly to the world.
One of the easiest ways to brighten your smile is with teeth whitening. We offer two types of whitening treatments. You can choose our in-office option that will get your teeth up to eight shades whiter in just one appointment. We also offer a take-home option so you can whiten your teeth at your convenience.
However, if you’d like a more permanent solution, you may consider veneers. They are thin pieces of material that are placed on the front of your teeth. Because they aren’t porous like regular teeth, they are highly resistant to staining. Plus, they can hide several flaws like chips, cracks, and misshapen teeth.
Straighten Your Teeth
Fixing crooked teeth is an excellent way to beautify your grin. We use Invisalign orthodontic treatment. This allows you to straighten your teeth discreetly without anyone noticing thanks to the invisibility of clear aligners. It also takes less time than traditional metal braces. By next summer, you’ll get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted!
Improve Your Teeth-to-Gum Ratio
If you show too much of your gumline when you smile, or not enough due to gum recession, we can help you achieve a more balanced grin. Our crown lengthening treatment will gently reposition your gumline to even out your teeth-to-gum ratio. If you’ve struggled with a receding gumline, whether it’s due to gum disease or just brushing your teeth too hard, Dr. Mercer will use special instruments to manipulate healthy gum tissue to cover exposed tooth roots.
Address Oral Health Issues
You can have the most beautiful-looking smile in the world, but if you aren’t addressing underlying oral health concerns, it’s only surface-level beauty. That’s why we recommend making sure you are visiting us for regular checkups. We’ll thoroughly clean your teeth and examine your mouth for any issues like gum disease, cavities, or more.
If you have major dental damage, disease, or missing teeth, we’d love to help you rebuild your smile. We offer several restorative options for you. If you have several missing teeth or even missing all of your teeth, you may want to also consider dental implants. They act as synthetic tooth roots so your teeth restorations have a good foundation for natural biting and chewing function.
