A smile is a valuable asset and an important physical expression of a person’s personality. A person’s smile says a lot about their character and confidence. But to smile with confidence, your teeth need to be in good shape. If you are shy about smiling, it’s time to think about improving your teeth with the help of your cosmetic dentist and some clever dentistry techniques.

Nothing spoils your smile (or makes you not want to smile) like discoloured teeth and unsightly gaps left by missing teeth. Straight, light and regular teeth add a brightness to your smile that lights up your face and warms the hearts of those you smile at.
Unfortunately, we were not all blessed with perfectly straight teeth. Some of us have to endure the pain of braces or Invisalign. However, thanks to the current society we live in and the ever advancing dentistry, we have more than one option when it comes to the straightening of our teeth. The most popular ones are braces and Invisalign. The competition between these two techniques is tight and many people do not know which to choose. To avoid being one of the confused people, it’s always good to examine the facts or contact your local Richmond dentist.
Let’s get this clear: Do you want to go straight? Are you tired of being crooked? While it’s not always easy to deal with life path choices, when it comes to your teeth, it’s quite possible to set things straight, even if you have an overbite, under bite or gapped or crowded teeth.
We all know that a smile says it all. The way someone smiles is a clear indication of how self-confident they are. We also know that first impressions last, and our smile is often what makes that first impression when we are introduced to someone for the first time.
When it comes to first impressions, your smile can make a big one and if you have self consciousness regarding your teeth, veneers are can be the solution to your problems. Made of either porcelain or composite, they are a shell that fits over your existing teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can improve issues ranging from discoloration to gaps between the teeth.
There’s a lot more to smile makeovers than simply taking the grey out of your smile, and replacing it with dazzling whiteness in an attempt to provide confidence and charm. It’s true that tooth whitening is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry, but a trained cosmetic dentist can definitely take your new look (and smile) far further than that.
You may have heard that porcelain veneers can correct several dental problems. But just what are they, and what can they and can’t they do? The important thing to remember is that porcelain veneers are essentially just a “cover up” for aesthetic issues that may have been affecting your confidence. In most instances, they don’t cure or change your teeth, but they do improve their appearance.
Dental gaps are not viewed the same as they were many years ago. Somehow, they have become somewhat of a fashion statement among many celebrities – especially models. These dental gaps are often expected to last a lifetime so if it is not desired then it is a problem – and for the majority of us, they are more of a nuisance than anything else. Of course, with the advancements in Dentistry nowadays, there are many different ways to fix gaps in teeth.
Luckily, punishing ourselves and our teeth by imprisoning them behind bars for a couple of years until they learn to go straight, is no longer the only option available when it comes to straightening teeth. Though metal braces still play their part, today our Richmond cosmetic dentistry centre fortunately offers other methods of that can be less obvious and unsightly, but still extremely effective.
