You might often laugh behind your hands or duck your head as you smile. The reason is simple: something about the appearance of your smile makes you uncomfortable. Sometimes this happens when you have a cracked or chipped tooth. A missing tooth could also be the culprit behind the hidden smile. If you are one of the millions of people guilty of keeping your smile to yourself, it’s time to put down your hand and grin at the world.

Your Chesterfield cosmetic dentist can create a beautiful smile that will increase your self-confidence so that you can finally show your friends and co-workers your natural smile. Advances in cosmetic dentistry have made it possible to replace missing teeth with implants that look and function like your natural teeth. Cracked and broken teeth can be given new life with veneers that are permanently placed over the damaged tooth. Bonding and whitening techniques can also help to improve the overall look of your teeth.

An initial visit with a Chesterfield cosmetic dentist will allow you to ask questions. The dentist will give you treatment options to help you attain the pearly white smile you’ve long desired. Once a course of action is in place, the dedicated staff will work diligently to transform your teeth into the look you’ve always wanted.

You may need some professional whitening treatments to remove the stains from coffee, nicotine, or blueberries. However, if the staining is caused by medications, veneers may be necessary to cover the stains and improve the whiteness of your teeth. Veneers can also even out teeth if one is longer than the other or gaps are present between teeth. If a tooth is missing, a titanium screw can be implanted into the jaw, and a ‘tooth’ will be permanently attached.
