There are many reasons why you may want to change your smile. From cracks in your teeth to stains in your enamel, there’s usually something about a smile that everyone wants to change. That’s why we’re proud to offer various cosmetic dentistry options for our patients here at Cindy Walker, DMD, PA in Garner.

Let’s look at a few of the options you have to improve your smile and what our team can do to help you get the smile you want.

If your teeth suffer from staining problems, retail-level whitening products, like whitening toothpaste or strips, are rarely strong enough to brighten your smile. If you have deeply stained teeth, your dentist can perform a professional teeth bleaching treatment. Once your teeth have been fully whitened, you can then maintain your smile with whitening strips or whitening toothpaste.

If your teeth also have chips or visible fillings, your dentist can restore the faces of each tooth by installing porcelain dental veneers. These products are basically thin, porcelain shells that are shaded bright white and cemented onto the faces of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material will only be subject to minor surface stains in the future, making it easy to maintain your white smile for a long time.

Obviously, this isn’t a comprehensive list of what can be done to improve your smile, but we hope it gives you an idea of what’s possible to fix. If you want to start your cosmetic dentistry journey or have more questions, call us today.
