In a nutshell, cosmetic dental care can change your life.
Consider the things that go through your mind when you don’t feel confident about your smile. If you have misaligned or discolored teeth, you may hesitate to smile when you’re out in public. A smile is an ice-breaker and the best form of introduction, both socially and professionally.
If you’re hesitating to smile, whether at a date or during an interview, you may be sending the wrong impression. You can come off as being stand-offish or not confident enough. In both scenarios, you may end up losing the opportunity to connect.
If there are things that you don’t like about your smile, we can help get them resolved as soon as possible. Doing so can change your level of self-confidence, and consequently your life.

There are undoubtedly countless reasons why someone would want to change their smile’s appearance. Some cosmetic dental problems are present at birth due to genetic conditions while others develop later in life due to lifestyle habits and other factors.
Some common reasons for requiring cosmetic dental care include:
Cosmetic dental care exists to fix the issues discussed in the previous section. Your dentist may recommend a single cosmetic dental procedure or multiple treatments depending on your unique needs.
Commonly sought-after cosmetic dental procedures include:
Stained or discolored teeth usually respond to teeth whitening. Teeth whitening agents contain hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down the stains on teeth, resulting in a whiter and brighter smile. We offer both in office and at home whitening treatments at our dental office in York, depending on the needs of the patient.
A crown is a custom-made tooth cover. Crowns are traditionally functional restorations, i.e., they are mainly used to restore dental function. However, crowns can also fix many cosmetic dental issues, including misshapen, worn, and missing teeth.
If you have a severely stained smile that cannot be corrected via teeth whitening, the dentist may recommend dental crowns. Dental crowns are also used to replace missing teeth when used to cap implants or support dental bridges.
A veneer is a thin tooth-colored shell bonded to a tooth’s surface to alter its appearance. Veneers fix stained or discolored teeth, chipped teeth, gap teeth, misshapen teeth, and unusually small teeth.
Cosmetic contouring or odontoplasty involves reshaping your tooth enamel to change the appearance of misshapen, uneven, crooked, or unusually short or long teeth.
To perform dental bonding, the dentist applies composite resin to a tooth and then reshapes it to the desired look. Dental bonding is ideal for fixing chipped and discolored teeth.
Gum contouring or reshaping enhances your smile by ensuring that your gum tissue is proportional to your teeth. Individuals with gummy smiles and gum recession are usually good candidates for gum contouring.
Invisalign treatment uses clear aligners to reposition misaligned teeth. Invisalign is popular among older teens and adults looking to correct their bite discreetly without making too many changes to their everyday lives.
