It’s natural to want a beautiful, stunning smile. Having a great smile does a lot for your life. Namely, it helps improve your self-esteem and confidence. Knowing you have a great smile means you’re more likely to use it to your advantage.

But if you don’t have a great smile, it’s easy to feel discouraged. How can you effectively make it look the way you want, you wonder? Well, we’re going to answer that question for you today.

Cosmetic dentistry
The best way to improve your smile is to visit a dentist for cosmetic dentistry work. All cosmetic dentistry does is work to improve the outward appearance of your teeth. The key here is to make sure that your teeth are healthy to begin with, and that they only need cosmetic work.

What does it involve?
Cosmetic dentistry involves any procedure that Dr. Lyndel Stripling and Dr. Shawn Nemovi perform that’s focused only on improving the appearance of your smile. This includes teeth whitening, dental veneers, and polishing. There are pros and cons to each procedure, and some may be a better fit for you than others based on your cosmetic dental needs.

How effective is it?
Whitening is something you’ll likely have to do multiple times a year, due to the nature of how easy it is to stain teeth. However, dental bonding will fix chipped or cracked teeth for as long as you take care of the bonded tooth. Similarly, veneers are long-lasting if you take care of them like you would a real tooth. That’s perhaps the biggest key to success with cosmetic dentistry.

At the end of the day, you’ll want to work closely with our team here at Lake Highlands Dental in Dallas, Texas, to figure out which cosmetic dentistry procedure is best for you. For more information, call us today at (214) 613-1279.
