4 Ways To Help You Achieve A More Confident Smile 

If you want to be able to have more confidence in your smile and correct some common dental issues, then take a look below. We’ll be covering a range of common reasons for people wanting to correct their smile, from your teeth to your gums and lips. Keep reading to find out more about what you can do.

Whitening Treatments

A quick and easy way to enjoy a more confident smile is to whiten your teeth. If you want more noticeable and long-lasting results, then your best option is to have your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist. However, this is also the most expensive option for those reasons. If you want a more cost-effective option, then you can find a range of options on the market for whitening kits at home, such as LED blue light kits and whitening strips.

Veneers And Dental Crowns 

If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your natural teeth and want a more instant change, then veneers and crowns can be a great option to consider. Both can be tailored to exactly the kind of look you’re hoping to achieve and designed individually using either porcelain or composite resin material. You might be wondering what the difference is between the two. Well, veneers are fitted simply to the front face of your natural teeth, whereas crowns are designed to cover the whole tooth, especially replacing the natural tooth without removing it. When choosing between veneers and crowns, consider the existing health of your teeth as well as the cost. Crowns can be more expensive than veneers, but they also help to protect your natural teeth and prevent decay. They are also a better option if you have any existing damage to your natural tooth from decay damage or an accident.

Clear Aligners 

If you want a straighter smile, a set of clear aligners for crooked teeth can be a great option to consider. They are easier to live with than having braces fitted and can be taken out when you’re eating or sleeping. Clear aligners also do not have a severe effect on your day-to-day life, such as when speaking. The time it takes for aligners to correct crookedness and provide you with the results you want will depend on your individual case, but it’s a gradual process and it usually takes around 12 months.

Lips And Gums 

As well as your teeth, your smile is affected by your gums and your lips too. For example, you might want to reduce the amount your gums are on show when smiling. There are cosmetic options that can help with a gummy smile, such as a lip flip procedure. This involves injecting Botox into the area above the top lip so that the skin doesn’t raise as much when smiling, reducing the exposure of your top gums. If you want to achieve a fuller smile, then you could also consider lip fillers which can be injected and make your lips appear larger or plumper.
