Cosmetic Dentistry: The Art of Enhancing Your Smile

Having a beautiful and healthy smile can help improve your confidence, your social interactions, and overall health and well-being. Whether you simply want to enhance your smile’s natural beauty or want a completely refreshed look, cosmetic dentistry can help you create the smile of your dreams.  

6 Cosmetic Treatments to Enhance Your Smile

1. Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments are one of the simplest ways to improve your smile. Professional treatments are fast, effective, and safe. Professional treatments are tailored, powerful, and fast – they typically work much more efficiently than over-the-counter teeth-whitening products to lift stains and brighten, whiten, and even out the color of your tooth enamel.  

2. Gum Contouring & Depigmentation

If your teeth may appear shorter than normal, this is likely caused by excess gum tissue. To reshape your smile, we use a leading gum contouring approach known as gum reshaping, gum lifting, or crown lengthening, by which we meticulously adjust your gum line to create the smile you desire. Sometimes, naturally-occurring dark spots on your gums, normally caused by excess melanin, can affect your smile as well. Individuals most commonly affected are those with dark skin, but smoking and long-term use of some medications can also cause this hyperpigmentation on the gum tissue. Gum bleaching, as it's commonly referred to, is a process in which your dentist safely and precisely removes the layer of gum tissue containing the melanin cells - after healing, gums will appear pink.

3. Dental Veneers

The quickest way to a stunning Hollywood smile, porcelain veneers are perfectly crafted to fit your smile. Veneers can completely cover the entire visible portion of the teeth, creating a whole new look for your tooth. They can cover up tooth gaps, irregularly sized or shaped teeth, stains, and chips. They can even be used to create the appearance of a perfectly straight smile without orthodontics.  

4. BPA-Free Cosmetic Bonding

At Cusp Dental Boutique we use an all-ceramic-based material for cosmetic bonding that beautifully repairs chipped or cracked teeth, reduces gaps or spaces between teeth, and hides discoloration or faded areas on the tooth’s surface. The bonding is fabricated with material that does not incorporate classic resin monomers, which contain BPA, and eliminates the risks associated with silver amalgam fillings.

5. Invisalign® Clear Aligners

While straightening your teeth can have health benefits, such as reducing your risk of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint disorder, it also has a big impact on the look of your smile. Virtually invisible and removable, Invisalign’s clear aligners help patients achieve a beautifully straight smile without the hassle, timeline, and cost of traditional braces.

6. Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent tooth-replacement option. They're among the most popular treatment option for replacing missing teeth to restore the form and function of a smile. In addition to restoring your smile, dental implants also offer cosmetic benefits, as they look and feel just like a natural tooth.  

Healthy and Beautiful Smiles

A healthy smile is a beautiful smile, and healthy, well-cared-for teeth encounter fewer oral health issues that result in the need for cosmetic treatments. At Cusp Dental Boutique, we place a strong emphasis on general and preventive dentistry to keep our patients' smiles healthy and happy. That being said, there's no more powerful tool for achieving a healthy and attractive smile than the combination of restorative and cosmetic treatments designed to restore the health and function of your smile while also creating the aesthetic appearance you desire.
