Small dental flaws can be a big concern when they make your smile appear uneven or asymmetrical. Visual imbalances can hurt the overall quality of your appearance, and those “minor” issues can stand out more because they disrupt the way that you look. At our Prairie Village, KS dentist’s office, we can discuss cosmetic dental work to make your smile more symmetrical. If you have a dental flaw that attracts unwanted attention, we can address it through a conservative tooth bonding and contouring procedure. This approach can improve the shape, size, and color of a tooth enough to make it a good fit for your smile without the need to modify it with a custom restoration.
The Value Of Smile Symmetry
People tend to react more favorably to smiles that are largely symmetrical. This is why isolated “minor” issues often make people so uncomfortable. A chipped, cracked, or discolored tooth can be distinct enough to attract plenty of attention even if the difference between an affected tooth and its neighbors is slight. Until these problems are addressed, the overall quality of your smile can suffer, and that means your confidence can remain lower.
Scheduling Tooth Bonding And Contouring Treatment
We can perform tooth bonding and contouring treatment to improve your smile without creating and placing any restorations. The contouring process is useful for positively changing the shape and size of a larger tooth, or one that appears jagged or uneven. During the tooth bonding process, Dr. Browne will use a composite resin material to carefully change the tooth’s shape, size, and color so that it fits in with your smile. Since this is a process that does not require any custom restorations, it can often be completed in as little as one visit!
What Else Can Your Dentist Do To Improve Your Smile Symmetry?
Porcelain veneers are also effective at addressing smile flaws that cause distraction. Any teeth that look awkward or out of place can be restored with thin shells that are affixed to the front of their tooth structure. Your smile may be asymmetrical because your teeth are improperly aligned. If this is the case, Dr. Browne can talk to you about the benefits of treatment with SureSmile Clear Aligners! SureSmile aligners make orthodontic treatment easier on patients, and it can even reduce the time you spend having your teeth adjusted.
