If you’ve ever wished that you had a prettier smile, you probably also wondered how it could be improved. Everyone wants a beautiful smile, but some people aren’t quite sure what traits make a smile aesthetically pleasing. Researchers have identified a few key aspects of a beautiful smile, and cosmetic dentistry has allowed many people to attain them. Here are a few qualities of a lovely smile and how your cosmetic dentist can help you achieve them.

Whiter and Brighter

One of the first things anyone will notice about another person’s smile is its color. While human teeth are naturally a slightly yellowish off-white, they can develop stains or discoloration due to years of exposure to tobacco smoke or foods and beverages that are high in dyes or pigments such as coffee, tea, berries, and red wine.

Luckily, your dentist can administer professional teeth whitening treatments that can make your smile up to ten shades whiter. One of these treatments can take the form of an in-office procedure that can be performed in about an hour or a take-home kit that can be completed over two weeks. Either way, professional teeth whitening delivers results far superior to those of any store-bought whitening products.

Even Spacing

People generally find that the most ideal smiles are free of crowding and gaps between the teeth. Teeth that are too close together or too far apart can also be harder to clean and easier to injure, making them more susceptible to tooth decay. These misalignment issues can also cause the pressure of chewing to be distributed unevenly, leading some teeth to crack and chip due to bearing the brunt of the force.

Fortunately, Invisalign clear aligners allow patients to discreetly realign their smiles without the irksome dietary restrictions and visible metal parts that come with traditional braces. These clear aligners are designed to be removed for meals and oral hygiene, and treatments usually require six to eighteen months to be completed.

Just Enough Visible Gum Tissue

Many people worry that they show too much gum tissue in their smiles. While this concern is completely cosmetic, it can make many people shy about flashing their grins. Luckily, your cosmetic dentist offers gum recontouring treatments. During such a procedure, your dentist will use an extremely precise laser to gently remove excess gum tissue, reshaping the way your gums fit around your teeth. This has helped many people to achieve more symmetrical and balanced smiles in a single appointment.

Cosmetic dentistry can be an excellent way to achieve a more ideal smile. Consulting with your dentist can determine if any of these treatments are a great fit for you.
