What Issues Can Cosmetic Dental Procedures Fix?

Many patients dream about having a picture-perfect smile as they see on celebrities or their favorite influencers. 

The good news? That smile is perfectly achievable with the help of cosmetic dentistry.

If you’re wondering whether these procedures can help you fix your smile, here are six common cosmetic issues Dr. Patrick Stuckey treats on a regular basis: 

1. Teeth Staining and Discoloration

Most people don't naturally have a white smile. Everything from your oral hygiene habits to how much coffee you drink can lead to stains forming on your teeth. 

But with professional teeth whitening, you can safely remove these stains and lift a few shades off your smile. In the end, you’re left with the perfect white teeth you’ve always wanted.

2. Gaps Between Teeth 

Cosmetic dentistry can remove gaps between your teeth and make your teeth appear closer together.

For minor cases, you can opt for dental bonding, a simple and reversible procedure that promises impressive effects.

But if your case is more severe or you want a permanent solution, then veneers are the ideal choice.

3. Irregularly-Sized Teeth

If your teeth are irregularly sized, your smile isn’t even, which can create self-esteem problems every time you smile.

Cosmetic dentistry can lengthen these teeth and even them out, allowing you to have a uniform smile.

4. Misshapen Teeth

If your teeth are worn, too pointy, or generally have a strange shape, cosmetic dentistry can effectively treat this issue in several ways. 

Dental bonding, veneers, or even dental crowns are all great options for you.

5. Minor Chips and Cracks

Not all tooth chips or cracks require restorative dental services. If the damage is small, then you can address these issues with cosmetic treatment.

They can improve the tooth’s appearance and potentially strengthen it to prevent future damage.

6. Tooth Alignment Issues

Most people know that if they have problems with their tooth alignment or bite position, they should see an orthodontist for the right treatment.

And this is true, but in minor cases, a cosmetic dentist is more than equipped to help straighten your smile. You can opt for Invisalign, a type of clear aligner that can discreetly reposition your teeth.
