Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are one of the most popular options to opt for when changing the shape of your teeth. 

Veneers are thin shells that are made from resin and porcelain that, once applied to your teeth, give them the shape you desire. It is not unlikely to have multiple veneers placed on your teeth at the same time. The most common amount of veneers placed on the teeth is around 4 or more. 

To get veneers, the patient must undergo dental inspection and x-rays, then these results are sent to a lab where the custom shells are created. The tooth is thereby prepared by being roughed up, placing the veneers, then adjustments are made to harden the bond. 

One major benefit of veneers is the fact that they are a quick solution and porcelain veneers are stain-resistant. 

Dental Implants

If you have a couple of missing teeth, changing the teeth” shape is not an issue. In the absence of teeth, dental implants are the ultimate alternative. They are used to replace missing and decayed teeth that need to be extracted, beginning from the titanium, post-placement and an artificial crown is clamped on it. 

The crown placed on it can be cut to the exact shape and size that you prefer. 

Dental implants are time-consuming and involve changing the shapes of your teeth. 

Dental implants are long-lasting, and when placed correctly can last for a lifetime!

Unlike bridging, placing them does not affect the surrounding of your teeth and has a near 100% success rate. 

Enamel Shaping and Bonding

Enamel Shaping is a great fit to change the shape of your teeth quickly. It doesn’t mean your smile will change entirely but it will definitely be enhanced. Enamel Shaping involves not more than a few millimeters of enamel and can include removing or adding new tooth materials. 

Bonding is when materials are added, and if you have a chip or a crack, it is filled with resin to add some finish to its appearance. The resin is mended with a special light that hardens it. 

Reshaping is when tooth material is removed. This process is also called contouring, and a special instrument is used to clear away imperfections and leave your teeth looking polished. 

Gum Reshaping 

If your gums make your teeth appear smaller when you smile, you can certainly remove excess gum tissues to explore more of your tooth. You will achieve a bigger and brighter smile afterward. 

Nonetheless, if you have receding gums that make your teeth appear unusually long, gum tissues from other parts of your mouth can be grafted to improve your smile. 

A lot of patients realize that the solution to their customization of teeth is dependent on a combination of treatments and procedures. Consult your orthodontist for an accurate prescription, you can also reach out to us here and we will discuss which option is best for you.
