If you’ve ever done any baking, you probably know that getting the right measurement for your ingredients makes a big difference in how your creation turns out.
If you need a cup of flour, you might scoop some into a measuring cup, then use a knife to level out the remove the extra flour. If you pour the flour, you might not add enough to fill your measuring cup at first. In that case, you just pour in a little more.
To have a perfect smile, you may need to do something similar to one or more of your teeth. When teeth are misshapen or large, removing some of the enamel can help it fit in with the rest of your smile. When teeth are small, worn-down, chipped, or broken, adding a little something can give your smile a more balanced appearance.
We have two great services at Davenport Dental Group to either take away or add something to your smile. To learn more about them, keep reading or contact either of our Laredo, TX dentist offices. Call 956-242-6745 (Junction Drive) or 956-517-2695 (Winfield) today!
Lose A Little To Gain Something
If have misshapen teeth, they can really stand out compared to the rest of your smile. Large teeth can look out of place as well.
In cosmetic dentistry, the way to fix this is a treatment called teeth contouring. This is a method of reshaping teeth by removing excess enamel.
An oversized tooth or teeth can make some people feel self-conscious about their smiles. We want you to feel confident and comfortable smiling and speaking in front of other people.
Contouring can be done painlessly at our practice. This is one of the most affordable ways to upgrade your smile, and it can help improve your oral health as well. When teeth are large, this can interfere with how effective brushing and flossing can be. By reducing the size of your teeth, you can remove more plaque and bacteria during your daily oral hygiene.
Add Something To Your Smile
If you have teeth that are smaller than you think they should, then you may want to ask about tooth bonding. This is another affordable option to upgrade your smile.
Bonding involves applying a composite resin to your teeth. This resin is hardened and can be polished and shaded, so it looks like a natural part of your smile. This is the same resin we use for our tooth-colored dental fillings.
Bonding is also one of the fastest ways to make changes to your smile. In a single visit, you can close gaps between your teeth, repair chips and cracks, and build-up worn-down teeth.
