The new year is here, and many people’s thoughts turn to self-improvement. Have you made any New Year’s resolutions in the last few weeks? You’re not alone. Did you know that one of the places where you can achieve the best aesthetic results is actually with your teeth?
If you notice that you hide your smile because of how it looks, cosmetic dentistry could be a part of your plan for a better future. When you feel good about your smile, it’s easier to put yourself out there — at work, with family, in photos, and with friends. A perfect smile is a great start to a perfect year!
At Greenwich Dentistry, Dr. Sean Sutton, Dr. Mark Sutton, and their team offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry options. What do you want to change about your smile? Visit our Cos Cob, Connecticut, office and find out more about the best dental interventions to brighten, straighten, or repair your teeth.
The first step to get a great looking smile is to make sure that all your teeth are in good repair. Your provider at Greenwich Dentistry may recommend dental restoration procedures, including fillings, crowns, dental implants, and bridges to repair or strengthen damaged teeth.
Once your teeth are all strong and healthy, it's time to start talking about aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry.
One common complaint about the appearance of teeth is that they may not all be straight and even. You might have some crooked teeth, visible gaps between teeth, or issues with bite alignment like an over- or under-bite.
Improperly aligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic issue. Well-aligned teeth tend to be easier to care for, with fewer places for debris and bacteria to gather and cause potential oral health problems.
Your provider at Greenwich Dentistry looks at your bite alignment and suggests the best techniques to straighten and even out your teeth. You could benefit from clear dental aligners that work even better than traditional wire braces, straightening your smile in less than a year.
The dental enamel that coats the outside of your teeth can become stained. And, dental enamel tends to wear away over time, revealing deeper dentin layers with a more yellow color. Maybe your cosmetic dentistry plan for this year is going to be all about teeth whitening treatments.
At Greenwich Dentistry, we provide professional teeth whitening that’s more effective, and safer for your mouth, than any drugstore kit. Our team customizes trays of bleaching solution to fit your mouth perfectly and brighten your teeth by several shades! You also don’t have to worry about discomfort, even if you have sensitive teeth, with our gentle whitening services.
You might also be interested in dental veneers. This cosmetic dental procedure covers the front of your natural tooth with a thin layer of material, often porcelain. Veneers can address both the color and shape of your teeth, and you can use veneers to change the appearance of one of your teeth, or your whole bite.
