A flawless smile is one of those personal characteristics you can’t put a pricetag on. Is your smile less than flawless? You’re not alone! But with cosmetic dentistry from The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, those flaws can be corrected.
Before we continue, though, we must point out a misconception. A lot of people think that cosmetic dentistry is all about appearance. Yes, it will make your smile look a lot better. But your teeth will be healthier, too!
If you’re one of those people who tries not to smile because of flawed teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help. An improved smile goes a long way to boosting your self-esteem and self-confidence.
Available procedures include:
Porcelain veneers. Thin shells of medical-grade ceramic are attached to the fronts of your teeth. They can cover up chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth. They are also good for covering damaged tooth enamel.
Teeth whitening. Years of consuming tea and coffee and other tooth-staining food and drink really take a toll on your smile. You’ll find a lot of over-the-counter whitening products at the store, but none can match the power of professional-strength whitening.
Dental implants. One of the true marvels of modern dentistry, dental implants are titanium posts inserted into your jaw. One can support an artificial tooth, and several can support a full dental arch. Because the implant fuses with the bone, your biting and chewing power is restored.
Correcting problem teeth can help reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues. Plus you’ll have a smile that you’ll love! Cosmetic dentistry from Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. People also come to us for clear braces from Invisalign. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
