Whatever the reason is for feeling that your smile is unappealing, know that you definitely have choices that can improve the way you look when you smile. Ready to learn what they are?

Cosmetically improving a smile

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, nearly three out of four people believe that having an unattractive smile has the potential to get in the way of their career success. It also states that 99 out of 100 people view a smile as an important social asset. The following is a list of some of the more common cosmetic dental treatments offered today that can help someone make it so their smile looks exactly how they want it to look.

#1 – Dental crowns

A dental crown, also known as a dental cap, can be used to cover up unappealing teeth by literally covering them up. A dental professional will first prepare the tooth so that the crown can be placed over the unappealing tooth, giving it strength and allowing it to look like a brand new tooth.

#2 – Braces

Braces can be used to straighten minimally or very crooked teeth, making them a popular option for improving the way someone looks when they smile. There are many types of braces available nowadays, making it so that those with crooked teeth have options.

#3 – Tooth-colored fillings

Metal fillings have been used for many years to treat dental cavities, which can often be seen when someone smiles. The option to replace metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings is now available and makes for a pleasant, uniform-looking smile.

#4 – Whitening procedures

An in-office teeth whitening procedure can work wonders when it comes to brightening up someone's smile.
