Not happy with your smile? Cosmetic dentistry could help!cosmetic dentistry

We know how important your smile is to you, so when you have a smile that is lackluster or missing that special something, then it’s time to consider the many ways cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile. Our Lehi, UT, dentist Dr. David Gordon is here to tell you about the wonders of cosmetic dentistry.

Sure, cosmetic dentistry is often considered a strictly aesthetic option; however, you might be surprised to learn that some cosmetic dentistry options also improve the health and strength of your smile, which could mean a healthier smile for the long run.

You could have your dream smile thanks to cosmetic dentistry options such as:

  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth or gum reshaping
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers

Are you dealing with small stains, chips, cracks or gaps between teeth?

Dental bonding may be the best option if you only have minor changes to make to your smile. Bonding is the easiest and least expensive cosmetic option out there and our Lehi, UT, cosmetic dentist can easily lengthen teeth, hide gaps and cover small imperfections with this tooth-colored resin.

Are some teeth a little jagged, pointy or uneven?

If you smile you might notice that some teeth look significantly longer than others, which can throw your whole smile out of whack. Perhaps your canines are too sharp or your gums are the first thing you notice rather than your teeth. If you are dealing with one of these scenarios, tooth or gum reshaping can help give you the symmetrical smile you want. By shaving off trace amounts of enamel or removing excess gum tissue, we can give you that more even smile.

Do you have serious yellowing or dental stains?

Whether you used to be a smoker or you just love coffee, there are many factors that can attribute to a fading, stained smile. If you want fast and visible results then professional whitening is the way to go. After a one-hour whitening session, you could walk out of the office with a smile that’s multiple shades whiter. It’s the perfect way to get that radiant smile before a special occasion.

Do you have more moderate flaws or minor misalignment issues?

Are some of your teeth a bit uneven? Are there larger gaps in your smile that bonding can’t handle? Do you have more obvious chips, cracks or other imperfections? If so, this is a job for dental veneers. These thin, porcelain shells are adhered to the front of your teeth to give your smile an instant makeover and to hide a variety of moderate-to-severe cosmetic defects.

Do you have questions about the cosmetic dentistry services we offer here in Lehi, UT? If so, then the next step is to call Gordon Family Dental and schedule a consultation with us. We would be happy to sit down with you to discuss which treatment or treatments are right for you.
